The watch uses the PlaysLike Distance option to adjust yardages to compensate for uphill and downhill shots, and with Hazard View you can quickly scroll through each hazard on the map to acquire distance information critical for avoiding trouble.

The Green View feature, meanwhile, will display each green’s true shape and allow you to drag-and-drop the pin for better yardage accuracy.

Additionally, the S62 utilises an Autoshot round analyser to measure and record detected shot distances.

For those of you looking to improve your golf, this watch will deliver fantastic insight into your game after pairing it with the Garmin Golf app and the new golf performance widget.

Stats are calculated in the app and then sent to the watch so you can review handicap index, fairway and approach shot hit/miss percentage, and green in regulation percentage.

The app even provides analysis for strokes gained and allows you to participate in leaderboards and tournaments with other players around the world.
