Garmin has decided to create a new device for golf enthusiasts, which is why it launched the Approach X40 – an activity tracker and golf GPS combined in one sleek band, so you don’t have to wear multiple devices. The Approach X40 is equipped with 1-inch sunlight-readable touchscreen display and a high-sensitivity GSP, making it one of the best golf watches.
As an activity tracker, it is perfect for activities such as running, walking and cycling. Why? Because it provides complete 24/7 heart rate monitoring and records steps, distance, calories burned, activity intensity, time of day and hours of sleep. Thanks to its Bluetooth® technology, the device receives smart notifications for incoming calls, texts and other alerts and it is water-resistant up to 50 meters. Moreover, it boasts a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to 10 hours in GPS mode and 5 days in watch mode.
With more than 40,000 preloaded courses, the Approach X40 golf band is TruSwing compatible and can be used as a digital scorecard, keeping track of your score throughout each round. It boasts an AutoShot round analyzer, which automatically identifies shots along the fairway, and the Green View feature that displays the entire area of the golf course and its shape, regardless of your location on the field. Last but not least, we should mention that it displays details on lay-ups and dog-legs, precise distances to the front, middle and back of each green cover and it also measures distances to hazards.
