Golf Australia Express : GA Express 195
T HE cosmic realms of golf GPS devices and activity trackers just became far more interesting with the release of the GARMIN APPROACH X40 GOLF-SPECIFIC ACTIVITY TRACKER BAND. The company’s first golf-specific activity tracker band features GPS and 24/7 heart- rate monitoring and combines daily activity tracking plus Garmin Elevate wrist heart- rate technology with golf data for more than 40,000 international courses. Slim and lightweight, the versatile wristband shows precise distances to the front, middle and back of each green as well as hazards. Smaller than other golf watches, the X40 band has AutoShot tracking, which measures and records shot distances for post-round analysis in Garmin Connect. The connected features include smart notifications and compatibility with the Garmin TruSwing club sensor to provide useful swing metrics at a glance and within Connect. With daily activity tracking, the Approach X40 records daily steps, calories burned, distance, time of day, hours of sleep and reminds users to stay active throughout the day with move alerts. The Elevate technology monitors heart rate and gives users the freedom to exercise without a chest strap and helps quantify the intensity of fitness activities. On the course, the X40 acts as a digital scorecard, which can track individual stats like fairways hit, greens in regulation and putts per round. When using the AutoShot feature, X40 users can gather even more data, such as the average distance for each club and longest drive per round. They can also see their shots overlaid onto one map to see their own personal trends and tendencies. When paired with the TruSwing golf club sensor, the X40 provides golfers with useful swing metrics in real time and 3-D animations in Connect so they can see how their individual mechanics affect ball flight and shot outcomes.
