The Approach S6 measures your backswing and downswing times and expresses this in a ratio. According to studies of successful golf swings this ratio should be 3:1 – your personal swing tempo shows you where you stand compared to the “optimal ratio.”
TempoTraining conveys the ideal 3:1 upswing to downswing times with audible tones to which you can synchronize your swing. Re-synch your tempo on the driving range and even on the tee box.
SwingStrength allows you to compare how hard you swing with your normal full swing. This can be used on the driving range to practice consistency or on the course if you’re preparing to take a little off your shot..
Get full-color hole-by-hole details for more than 40,000 courses around the world, even before you play them. Preview doglegs, hazards and green shapes from wherever you are on the course, or even from home.
One glance at your wrist from any point on the course is all it takes to get yardages to the front, back and middle of greens with clear, easy-to-read numbering.
Course management is key – especially if you haven’t played a course before. Layup distance shows you yardages to doglegs and other hazards on the course.
Receive emails, texts, alerts and more right on your watch. S6 displays whatever your iPad® or iPhone® (4s or later) can display wirelessly via Bluetooth®.
Input strokes, putts per round, GIR and fairways hit while it’s still fresh on your mind. Then later, when you access your printable scorecard, you can view the information there.
Garmin S6 ApproachBy: Robert Ah Hee on 21 May 2017I bought the S6 over a year ago and I have had it replaced twice by Garmin as my S6 would skip holes or freeze. Both cases Garmin have found fault with the software and just recently replaced it with a new unit and not a refurnished one as was previously the case. I still cannot use my watch on shotgun starts unless I tee off the 1st tee as I have struggled to find a way to skip holes. Since day one my swing/tempo mode has not worked and definitely does not deliver what is stated in the specs. The service I have received from Garmin has been excellent but unfortunately the product is inferior and not worth the money paid. This review is solely a warning for the Garmin S6 Approach and not Golf World or Garmin itself.
