Anyone who's ever played golf will agree it's a bit of a love-hate relationship. When you're playing well, it's a beautiful game and you're on top of the world. When you're not, there are few experiences more frustrating. Thankfully, there's the Garmin Approach X40 GPS golf band to help you step up both your golf game and your health and fitness, so you can focus a lot more on the love of the game.

We've all been there: wondering where the pin is or which club to use, hitting a shot in the drink or trying to dig out of the sand. Yeah, not fun. But thanks to a high-sensitivity GPS, the X40 lets you know where you are, as well as the distance to the pin and any potential hazards. Its Green View feature takes a lot of the guesswork out of your putts, showing you the precise shape and layout of the green.

And as much as die-hard golfers might disagree, life doesn't totally revolve around golf, and neither does the X40. Every time you go for a walk, run, hike, bike ride, or workout, your device will be by your side every step of the way, monitoring and recording your activity. It's designed to motivate you to achieve your overall health and fitness goals, which in turn, will help you reach new heights out on the links.

What you need to know:

  • All-in-one solution: The Garmin Approach X40 combines a GPS golf band with an activity tracker to keep you connected on the go and help you improve your game and your health.
  • High-sensitivity GPS: It uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to indicate where you are and how far you are from the pin, so you can make that next swing with confidence. You also get distances to hazards, doglegs, layup positions, and more.
  • AutoShot Round Analyzer: This handy feature automatically detects every swing and accurately measures shot distance. This info is automatically recorded along with shot location for post-round analysis on your Garmin Connect account.
  • Green View: Whether you're in front, behind, or in the middle of the green, Green View gives you the precise shape and layout of the green. It also lets you reposition the pin so you can more accurately select your shot.
  • Digital scorecard: No more fumbling with pencil and paper. The Approach X40 records your scores so you can humble brag about them with your golf buddies through the Garmin Connect mobile app on your compatible smartphone.
  • Free course updates: The X40 comes preloaded with over 40,000 courses from around the world. New courses and updates are added each year via Garmin Express with no setup charges, fees, or subscriptions required.
  • TruSwing: This model is compatible with the Garmin TruSwing golf swing sensor (sold separately), which gives you advanced swing metrics to improve your swing consistency and form. It tracks swing tempo, speed, club-path measurements, club angles, and more.
  • Activity tracking: The X40 also tracks your steps, distance travelled, calories burned, and sleep patterns to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. It also features the time, date, and an alarm setting to keep you on schedule.
  • Elevate wrist heart rate technology: Keep track of your heart rate during your workouts without the need for any straps or sensors. The X40 monitors your heart rate 24/7 and quantifies the intensity of your activity for more accurate results.
  • Smart notifications: Integrated Bluetooth technology delivers notifications to the X40 from your smartphone so you never miss another important text, email, or phone call, whether or not you're on the fairway.
  • Sleek look, intuitive design: Designed to be worn every day, the X40 boasts a dignified look with a thin, lightweight golf band and crisp, easy-to-use touchscreen display.
  • Built to last: This all-in-one device is dustproof and water-resistant to 50m, so whether you're hacking away in a bunker or caught out in the rain, the X40 can handle just about anything.
  • Long battery life: The X40 has a lithium-ion battery that offers up to 10 hours of continuous use in full GPS mode, plenty of power for long rounds or extra holes. It offers up to 5 days when used in activity tracking mode before it needs a charge.
  • Garmin Connect: This online golf community lets you share and compare your scores and other data with friends. Track your progress from round to round and even combine your best scores for each hole on that course so you know what your best 18 looks like.
  • Compatibility: The X40 is compatible with iOS or Android mobile devices and connects through the Garmin Connect mobile app.

  • TERRIBLE FOR CANADIANS
    by

    from Calgary, AB on August 14, 2017

    This seems like a good product, however Garmin has left Canadians out in the cold. As Canadians, our golf is done in yards, but everything else is in metric. KM, Celsius etc. With this product you cannot do both. If you want your "smart" watch to tell you temp in Celsius, then your golf will be measured in meters. Ridiculous oversight Garmin.

    I owned a Garmin S1 for golfing (nice) and wanted to get a fitbit capability without the clunky watch. This is a sleek unit that I wear all the time. The Golf capabilities are all that I want, I can read it without glasses, and the fitness part is fully capable for my needs. Battery life seems great. A good decision for me.
