Pros & Cons of Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf

Setup

The setup of this piece of kit is as you would expect with any fitness and smart device. Simply remove from box, connect to a PC or Mac and follow the instructions then away you go.

To be honest, anything more complicated than that and I would have got a little worried. There’s no need to over complicate things here and Garmin hasn’t.

To make the absolute most of this GPS band, you’ll want to pair it with a smartphone. This basically means you can view your progress, shot records, scorecard, and additional fitness stats (more on this later) from your mobile phone device.

Ease Of Use

You’ll find this piece of kit really simple to use. As mentioned above, the setup situation is ideal and suitably uncomplicated, and this theme runs through the whole product, from the look, feel, and usage.

The main button of use on this band is the ‘device’ key – this is your one-stop-shop for getting around your new GPS. Pressing this will activate your watch-face screen, where you can select through the options using the touchscreen technology.

Course Availability

Fitness ​& Health Tracking

Fitness ​& Health Tracking

As well as the traditional golfing features you’ve come to expect from a Garmin GPS device, you’ve also got some nice specs when it comes to health and fitness.

The increased availability of fitness apps and devices means that a golf band will always be a product in demand, but now with the inclusion of fitness features (steps per day, heart rate and sleep monitoring), Garmin has produced an all-inclusive piece of kit that, although not exclusive, offers a great alternative to other brands that don’t offer a golfing feature.

Accuracy

There are mixed messages on the accuracy of the Garmin X40. Users have found the piece to be a little slow on catching up to where you’re positioned on the course, which obviously isn’t ideal. However, the sheer amount of courses that this GPS is compatible with could be a reason for this.

Bottom Line

I think with all things considered, this is a really neat piece of kit. The features you would want from the golf GPS – course information, shot distance, ease of use – are all here.

If you don’t operate from a smartphone you will have a problem making the most of the kit but in all honesty, it’s unlikely anyone would buy the wrist device without one. So, what do you think about our Garmin X40 Golf GPS reviews?
