Garmin S60 Vs Garmin S12 Comparison
Find out which golf watch is best for you in the following Garmin S60 vs Garmin S12 comparison.
Garmin S60 Overview
“One big difference between these watches is that the S60 has a color, touchscreen display.”
The S60 also has a more solid feel with Corning gorilla glass display and a ceramic bezel. It does sit slightly heavier on the wrist; but it also feels more durable than the Garmin S12.
The S60 also has more golf features like swing tempo training, “plays like” distance readings and custom target distance readings.
The S60 is definitely more of a lifestyle watch as well as it has tracking profiles for cycling, swimming and general training tracking features.
Garmin S12 Overview
“The Garmin S12 is $200 less than the S60 and lacks certain advanced features.”
For example the S12 does not have “find my phone” or music control features. It also doesn’t have compass or gyroscope functions.
But you get all the essential golf features like yardage to layups/dog legs, digital scorecard, 43,000 preloaded courses, stat tracking and distance readings to hazards.
However, one big quality of life feature that the Garmin S12 lacks is automatic shot distance calculating – it’s manual with the S12.
“If you want to be able to track more of your physical activity off the golf course, the Garmin S60 is the better choice. But if you only need the essential golf features, the Garmin S12 is more practical.”
