I don’t know about you, but technology has sure helped me get improve my golf game a lot more quickly in the last few years than when I just started out almost 40 years ago.

The ready availability of advanced metrics, real-time data, and better equipment and construction have changed the way we learn the game forever. 

While my dad still maintains (and correctly so) that you can’t just buy a golf game, there’s no arguing the fact that making some investments in your own improvement can go a long way.

That’s why I can’t wait to tell you all about the Garmin Approach S62 Watch with CT10 Automatic Club Tracking System.

Key Features

Watch comes preloaded with more than 41,000 courses.

Virtual caddie gives you club recommendations and even wind direction and speed so picking the right club has never been easier.

CT10 sensors dial in the distances with each club in your bag.

Design and Technology

As we noted in our previous review of the Garmin Approach S62, the watch is chock full of modern design and technology features that are sure to help you play better, have more fun, and track all sorts of important metrics both on and off the course.

Some of the highlights include more than 41,000 courses that are preloaded and ready for you to use.

The virtual caddie makes club suggestions based on your yardage and even takes into account wind speed and direction. 

Additionally, PlaysLike distance accounts for uphill and downhill slopes and gives you adjusted yardages.

The bundle gets especially enticing with the Garmin CT10 club sensors. Using them is simple. They attach easily to the butt end of your grips.

With every swing you make, the sensors will track your data which is then relayed to your watch. Metrics like strokes gained, shot yardages and shape, and countless others are all stored after each use.

Combine the Approach S62 watch and CT10 sensors and you have everything you can imagine to help you play your best golf and improve quickly.


PROS

  • Integrates seamlessly with Garmin golf watches like the S62, providing a complete shot tracking and GPS solution
  • Presents shot data in an easy-to-understand way without being overwhelming, with clear recommendations based on your stats
  • Part of Garmin's robust golf ecosystem, which includes the R10 launch monitor and Z82 rangefinder, all syncing to one app

CONS

  • Requires a Garmin golf watch, adding high upfront cost compared to other shot-tracking options
  • Provides less data than competitors like Arccos, which may be limiting for advanced users looking to dive deep into their stats
  • Starter kits with only 3 sensors don't provide a complete enough picture, so you'll likely need to buy a full set of sensors for best results


Our Experience

As someone that’s a huge advocate for using technology to get better at golf, I can’t think of a better combination than the Garmin Approach S62 watch bundled with the CT10 sensors.

The number of functions and quantity of data simply can’t be beat.

And both the sensors and watch are easy to use once you get everything set up too. That’s different from other watch and club sensor combos that seemingly require an advanced degree to use.

Overall, I have nothing but good things to say about this product.
