Wrist-based Heart Rate
The golf band’s Elevate wrist heart rate technology measures heart rate at the wrist 24/7. That gives you the freedom to work out with no additional heart rate strap needed. Using heart rate, Approach X40 provides calories burned information and quantifies the intensity of your fitness activities, providing better credit for your efforts.
It’s a Rockin’ Band
Only Garmin lets you combine golf GPS with fitness tracking with smart connectivity — all in 1 slim, low-profile wristband that’s as durable and comfortable as it is versatile. Water-rated to 50 meters and featuring a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, the Approach X40 golf band also gives you the current time and date — plus an alarm setting — so you can wear it every day to keep your active life right on schedule..
Game-changing Golf Guidance
Approach X40 is a true go-anywhere golfing partner. So, no matter where you’re teeing off, it knows where you are — and how far you are from the next pin. The band’s high-sensitivity GPS receiver gives you the distance data you need to fire away with confidence. Plus, the crisp touchscreen display accurately shows distances to the front, back and middle of the green — even when you’re under tree cover.
AutoShot Round Analyzer
On the course, Approach X40’s AutoShot round analyzer automatically detects shots² along the fairway and measures distances for post-round analysis on Garmin Connect.
Green View Display
Approach X40’s Green View display shows you the true shape and layout of the green, even if you’re behind it. You can manually reposition the pin to today’s location for accurate shot selection.
Never miss another important text, email or alert just because your smartphone is tucked away somewhere in your bag. Approach X40 acts as a wireless extension of your compatible smart device, displaying smart notifications, right on your wristband³. Now, via Bluetooth® technology, you can read that email or text you’ve been waiting for — even in the middle of the fairway.
