Product Details

The Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf Band features the latest in innovative technology to help you plot your way around the golf course and manage your everyday lifestyle.
Slim, lightweight and stylish the Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf Band utilises the brilliant Elevate technology to provide you with instant and accurate distances to the front, middle and back of each green plus hazards you may need to avoid on your way around the course.

Another great function on the X40 is that it features Autoshot Tracking so that each shot is measured and recorded for post game analysis. In GPS mode the X40 is preloaded with over 40,000 worldwide courses and a great feature is that any course updates are free of charge for the lifetime of the product.

When you are off the course Garmin have designed the Approach X40 Band to function like a normal watch/activity tracker. Time is displayed on a hi-res screen that can be seen in whatever light. In activity tracker mode the X40 will measure how many steps you have taken, distance covered, calories burned, your heart rate and your activity intensity. 

And to keep you in contact with the world you can pair up the device to your smartphone to receive incoming calls, texts and other alerts.
