Rangefinders continue to evolve, even in packages already small and functional, like those worn on the wrist in the manner of a wristwatch. Garmin Golf joined that fray with its Approach S1 and now has improved upon it with the Approach S2.

The S2 comes preloaded with more than 30,000 courses world wide and can be used right out of the package. It provides distances to the front, middle and back of greens, and features layup and dogleg distances. For those walking the course, it even inlcudes an odometer to chart your mileage.

The S2 comes with a digital scoreard feature that enables golfers to save their scores via a web-based program from Garmin.

Oh, and it really is a wristwatch, too, providing the time and the date.

The Approach S2 will become available in March, with a suggested retail price of $250.
