Garmin Introduces the Approach X10

Garmin has announced the X10, a comfortable golf band that comes preloaded with data for over 41,000 courses around the world.

“The Approach X10 is a simple and intuitive band perfect for beginners just starting to learn the game, or for avid golfers who want a fundamental golf band used exclusively on the course,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager Garmin Australasia.

The golf band has a slim, comfortable and unobtrusive design with a 1-inch touch display. It is water resistant to 5 ATM so it can withstand the occasional rainy round or sweat on a hot day. The rechargeable battery can get up to 12 hours in GPS mode – perfect for the player who wants to play more than one round.

“Even if you’ve never played the course before, the Approach X10 will give you the tools to swing with confidence.”

Using the Approach X10, golfers of all skill levels can easily see precise distances to the front, back and middle of the green, as well as hazards on the touch screen display. The band will display layups, doglegs and hazards like bunkers or water on over 41,000 pre-loaded courses worldwide, which includes free lifetime course updates.

This device will automatically transition holes as users move from one to another. Additionally, it will keep track of stats such as greens in regulation, putts and fairways, and measure shot distance. Thanks to the Approach X10’s Green View display, players will know the layout of the green, and they can easily position the pin on the touchscreen to that day’s location for an accurate shot selection.

To add another level of fun and competition, the Approach X10 is one of the many Garmin golf watches compatible with the new Garmin Golf app that lets users compete in weekly leader boards on any golf course.

This free app allows users to compete against friends and fellow golfers on the same course, plus view another players’ rank, score, handicap and more. Players can use this app to setup their own tournament event and invite multiple friends to compete. Users can input their score manually in the app, or upload their scorecard from the Approach X10 using Garmin Express and view it in the Garmin Golf App.

The Approach X10 is expected to be available in February 2018 with a recommended retail price of $249.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
