Our Garmin Approach X40 Golf/Fitness Band Review will be coming soon, but here are our initial thoughts.

We love Garmin golf watches and we love Garmin fitness bands, so we find the Garmin X40 band very exciting.

Garmin Approach X40 User Rating: 4.22 Stars 4.22 out of 5 (249 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

Golf features include distance to the front, middle, and back of every green, plus hazard distances. You can see the shape of the green and manually adjust the pin position. AutoShot tracking measures and records your shot distances automatically. It has a scorecard and stat-tracking. Combining these features with Garmin Connect make post-game analysis really interesting.

Activity tracking shows steps, distance, calories burned, heart rate and activity intensity. If that’s not enough, you can get notifications from your smartphone.
