  • The Garmin Approach S12 Smartwatch
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Daveb - September 20, 2021

    The Garmin Approach S12 Smartwatch was very easy to set up and connect to my mobile device. I've used it twice at two different golf courses that I usually play and both courses were in the program. It always knew where I was and gave me front, middle, and back pin placement. It's nice to have all that information right on my wrist. Now if it could only help me with my swing.
