Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!
If the battery wont hold a charge, I agree with your assessment. The battery on that S1 must be at least 2 or 3 years old and it needs to be replaced.
Garmin will repair it and replace the battery for a flat rate fee. The cost is substantial.
Ive recommended an alternative before, at less then half the cost. The company on this page will supply the battery, replace it, and ship it back to you all at a very reasonable cost
If you prefer to go through garmin, you can order a flat rate repair here.
Garmin will charge 79$ for an Approach S1.
Or, if you prefer a little do-it-yourself .. You can purchase just the battery here.
Keep in mind though, the genuine battery cost is almost as much as the repair service I linked you to, through ebay.
If you have further questions, let me know.
I strive to provide great service, and greatly appreciate a rating of excellent submitted below this answer when you are satisfied.. I always answer follow up questions.
