Approach S4 GPS golf watch is lightweight, comfortable and precise. With up to 38,000 international courses, the stylish S4 has a dedicated Green View button for quick access to the green with manual pin positioning. And better battery performance allows for round after round of precision golf.

Instant, Simple, Precise

Rugged and water resistant to 10 meters, Approach S4 is packed with up to 38,000 international courses. It displays yardages to the front, back and middle of greens on a high-resolution, glove-friendly touchscreen. And, it lets you manually position pins, get distances to doglegs and layups, customize yardage points (mark traps and hazards), and print digital scorecards for Stroke Play and Stableford.

Dedicated Green View Button

S4 features a dedicated Green View button, which takes you to the Green View screen quickly — no more scrolling through a menu. Green View gives you the true shape from wherever you are on the course, even if you’re behind it.

Use the touchscreen to manually move the pin to the day’s location. This is especially helpful on par 3s where you’ll be able to dial in the distance you need to fire away with confidence.

Smart Notification

Never miss another text, email or RSS alert. S4 acts as a wireless extension of your iPhone®, displaying whatever your phone does, right on your watch. Now you can read that email or text you’ve been waiting for wirelessly — even in the middle of the fairway.

Longer Battery Life

S4 features more battery life for longer play or more rounds. Get up to 10 hours in full GPS and 6 weeks in watch mode before the lithium-ion battery needs to be recharged.

Preloaded Courses and Free Updates

S4 may be the size of a typical sports watch, but it comes with up to 38,000 international courses — without extra fees or paid subscriptions. And you'll be able to download free course updates whenever they're available.

Customize Distances

Approach S4 gives you distances to the front, back and center of the green, as well as distances to doglegs. It also allows you to input and save customizable yardage points — such as water hazards or bunkers — from anywhere on the course.

Keep Score and See How Far

S4 has digital scorecard options for individual players. Scoring options include Stroke Play and Stableford, so you can save, review, share and print scorecards from your computer. And, when you hit a big one you can see how far it went with the Measure Shot feature.

Everyday Watch with Style

S4 works like an everyday watch. It also has an odometer to see how far you walk. A round timer keeps track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes. It's available in 2 colors: black or white.

Green View

Approach S4 shows you the true shape and layout of greens so even if you have an obstructed view, you’ll know where to aim. Plus, you can touch and drag the pin to the days’ location for even greater accuracy.

Precise Yardages

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.

Layup Distances

Course management is key — especially if you haven’t played a course before. Layup distances shows you the distances you need with yardages to doglegs and other hazards on the course.

Smart Notification

Receive emails, texts and more, right on your watch. S4 displays alerts from an iPhone® wirelessly.

No Downloads, No Setup

Say goodbye to subscriptions and fees — Approach S4 comes with up to 38,000 international courses and has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
