Garmin Approach S1 GPS Watch for Golfers
 
 

Garmin has a line of GPS devices that are for golfers. The devices in the line right now are touchscreen GPS machines that are larger and bulkier than some might like. Garmin has announced the addition of a new and very slim device for its golf market called the Garmin Approach S1.

The S1 is a watch style GPS device that updates the golfer's location continuously to give the player exact distances to the hole on over 14,000 courses in the US and Canada. The watch gives yardage to the front, back, and the middle of greens.

The watch is waterproof and weighs only 1.8 ounces. It also has a time function and updates for time zone and time changes automatically. Power comes from an internal rechargeable battery good for three weeks in watch mode and eight hours in GPS mode.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
