Garmin Approach X40


Golf and Fitness Tracking Come Together in 1 Sleek Band

  • Slim, lightweight GPS golf band with ElevateTM wrist heart rate technology and activity tracking¹
  • Displays distances to front, back and middle of the green plus hazards
  • AutoShot tracking measures your shot distances and auto-records detected shots for post-round analysis²
  • Activity tracking shows steps, distance, calories burned, heart rate and activity intensity¹
  • Receive vibrating smart notifications for incoming calls, texts and other alerts³

You want to shoot better golf. And you want to take steps to improve your overall fitness and well-being. But you don’t want to wear or carry multiple devices to help you achieve those goals. That’s why our Approach X40 GPS golf band is the ideal all-in-one solution. Preloaded with more than 40,000 golf courses worldwide, it combines daily activity tracking with wrist-based heart rate plus vibrating smart notifications³ to keep you connected on the go.

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.¹

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.

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.

Smart Notifications

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.

Garmin Connect Golf Community

Garmin Connect is the online golf community that lets you play, then share and compare. Download your round and contrast it to your last round; track improvements to your game for every course you play. Garmin Connect Golf app can even assemble your ideal round, combining your best score for each hole to get your ideal 18 for that course.

When you’re done, you can save, review and even use Garmin Connect Mobile with your smartphone to automatically upload and share that great round with your golfing buddies online.

Compatible with TruSwing™ Sensor Metrics

By combining the easy-to-use Garmin TruSwing club sensor (sold separately) with your Approach X40 golf band and compatible smartphone or tablet, you can access real-time, 3-D animations and other useful swing metrics to see how your mechanics affect ball flight and shot results. Using the Garmin Connect Mobile golf app, you can instantly analyze swing tempo, speed, club-path measurements, critical club angles and more.
