Garmin Approach® S1 Golf GPS Watch
Gives me the information I need when I need it
Accurate distances to the front, back and middle of the green. And you don't have to go back to your cart or dig around in your bag to get it; the information you need is right there on your wrist. And, if you wear glasses, like me, you also don't have to figure out how to use a rangefinder with your glasses on. This really is the only way to play!

Great Golf Accessory
I got this for my wife for Mother's Day and she loves it. I tried it once and found the yardard is accurate, except for some of the front and back edge yardages, which seemed either too little or too much by up to 5 yards - middle yardage was very good though, maybe 1 yard out most times.
The only complaint is the short battery life. It's only good for one round after a full charge so I wouldn't expect to play 2 rounds with the watch. You can't forget to plug this in after you get home if you plan to play the next day, very important. You can't replace the battery with a non-rechargeable so you either charge or can't use it.
Overall my wife loves it and would recommend to others not wanting to use a full colour handheld or binocular range finder. Very functional.

Not sure how or if it will work
It appears to be good ....discovered my home course and just about all the courses in Muskoka are not available yet Garmin says that they are scheduled for next data update here's hoping !

Easy to set up and works great.
It works well, but I would like to see more Canadian (Quebec) golf courses listed.
