As expected from Garmin, the watch comes pre-loaded with over 40,000 courses that load up quicker than the competition on arrival at the course.
You get distances to front, middle and back of the green as well as distances to hazards and important points on each hole with a complete overview of each hole.

Garmin S62 Overview
Just when the Garmin S60 thought it had the market all to itself, along came the Garmin S62 and effectively blew it out of the water.
The Garmin S60 is great but it had some flaws, like a less than perfect battery life and a lack of features such as a heart monitor to really get into the fitness aspect of your game.
The S62 has come along offering over 3 rounds in GPS mode which can put your mind at ease about charging it every time you hit the links. It also lasts a number of weeks in watch mode.
The virtual caddie makes a selection of the club you may wish to play on any particular hole and it even takes wind along with slope into consideration on the larger 1.7″ x 17″ screen.
You have the quick change bands to switch up the look and feel and you zero in on any point on the hole to get any distance you want for masterful course strategies.
You can even pay for your drinks at the 19th hole when you complete your round thanks to the new Garmin Pay feature.
The S62 cost a lot more than the S60 when it came but now you get either of these watches for about $400, the S62 is by far the superior choice in our opinion.
