The Garmin Approach S6 is a slim, lightweight, hi-resolution colour touchscreen golf watch with first-of-its-kind GPS technology featuring swing metrics. Features swing metrics: SwingTempo, TempoTraining and SwingStrength Dedicated CourseView button with Green View for manual pin positioning PinPointer blind shot assistance tells you where the pin is, even if you can’t see it Touchscreen, high-resolution and glove-friendly Precise distances for more than 30,000 international courses, no subscriptions or fees Swing metrics Use S6 to train your swing with swing metrics, featuring SwingTempo and TempoTraining. SwingTempo measures the relationship between upswing and downswing and expresses it as a ratio. In studies of successful golf swings, an ideal ratio of 3:1 has emerged, even with individual variations of speed. TempoTraining uses the 3:1 ratio and gives you audible tones to synchronise your swing mechanics and fine-tune swing tempo, which makes S6 as valuable on the driving range as it is on the course. CourseView full colour maps S6 features full-colour course views for more than 30,000 international courses and a dedicated CourseView button to get you to the second shot view quickly. Preview doglegs, traps and water hazards and pin positioning from wherever you are on the course or clubhouse. PinPointer The PinPointer blind shot assistance feature gives you a directional arrow to the green. Now you can know where to line up your shot, even if you are in the woods or deep in a trap. Touch and move the pin Green View shows you the true shape and layout of the green even if you are behind it. Use the colour touchscreen to manually drag-and-drop the pin to the day’s location. As you move the pin, your distance-to-the-pin numbers will change respectively. This is especially helpful on par 3s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need to fire away with confidence. Instant, simple and precise Rugged and water rated to 5 ATM (50 metres), it displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly colour touchscreen.
