Garmin Approach S60: Basic Functions


In this video, you will learn how to use some of the new golf functions available with the Garmin Approach S60. First, select the action key, then select Golf. Once your device locates satellites, you can select a course from a list of nearby courses. When you’re on the course, Hole View shows the hole you’re playing and automatically moves to the next one with you. Swipe up or down, or drag the hole indicator along the edge of the screen to change holes. Your device will automatically calculate the distance to the front, middle and back of the green, which you can view on the hole information screen. Use Green View during a game to take a closer look at the green and move the pin. First, select the map, then select the pin icon at the top of the screen. You can tap or drag the icon to move the pin. The distances on the hole information screen will update to reflect the new location and save it, but only for the current round. The PlaysLike distance feature adjusts the distance to the green based on changes in elevation. Select a distance to the green. An icon appears next to each distance. This icon means the distance plays shorter than expected. This icon means the distance plays longer than expected due to a change in elevation. And this icon means the distance plays as expected. During a game, you can use touch targeting to measure the distance to any point on the map. With the map selected, tap or drag your finger to position the target circle. You can view the distance from your current position to the target circle, and from the target circle to the middle of the green, zooming in and out when needed. With AutoShot, each time you take a detected shot along the fairway, your Approach S60 records your shot distance so you can view it later. The Approach S60 also comes with preloaded widgets and sports apps. From the watch face, swipe up or down, then tap the screen to see different options and functions for each widget. Press back, and then the action button. Tap the four dots at the bottom of the screen. Scroll down to see the different apps. Garmin Approach S60 offers these features and many more.
