Garmin Approach X40 GPS Golf Band White/Black is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I got a Lemon I bought this a couple of months ago. It was has impossible to use right out of the box. The touchsceen didn’t respond. I couldn’t get it to scroll. I finally was able to reset it and get it to almost work. Got to the course for the first time to use it and it wanted to Update. It wouldn’t do anything and I couldn’t get it to shut off or update. Returned it for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for the course and general fitness I bought this to replace a Garmin Fenix 5, as that was just too large for me to wear comfortably while playing golf. This band is perfect to wear when playing. It's a good all around fitness device, though, I wish it had more dedicated kinds of workouts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Accurate but flawed I never write reviews. I purchased the Garmin Approach X-40 as a wearable GPS device for my rounds of golf. The GPS feature I found very accurate. The other features are less impressive. First the screen is too small for anyone wioperfect vision. Keeping score on the device is tedious and the other features are not as simple to apply as described. I can tell you after one month I’ve already ordered a different device. If I could return this, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Accurate! I bought this two months ago and have been impressed with how easy it is to use and coupled with the app, I can track my score along with my exercise goals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product PROS: -Provides all the information most golfers will need/want. -Extremely small and light, but numbers are big enough for "older" eyes. -Simple to use. -Very durable. -Ability to track every shot online is a fantastic feature. You can see every shot you've ever hit on a given hole to see if you have a consistent miss. -Keeping score on the watch is simple and much easier than using a traditional score card, especially if you are walking. -Battery life is at least 27 holes, which I think is quite good. CONS: -Instructions that come with the watch are minimal, to say the least. Online instructions are better, but still not great. Fortunately, everything is pretty intuitive. -Cannot get the watch to "accept" the fact that I am starting on the back 9. -Occasionally the watch will freeze during startup. I haven't found a way to get around this other than to not use it for that particular round.
