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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
