Why buy a golf handheld and a golf radar separately when it’s so easy to get both in a single convenient unit? Approach G80 is the first all-in-one premium GPS golf handheld with integrated launch monitor. Garmin radar technology makes it easy to track club head speed, ball speed, smash factor, swing tempo and estimated distance.
Approach G80 is equipped with multiple different practice and game modes. It also offers the ability to play virtual rounds on any of the more than 41,000 preloaded courses worldwide with full-color CourseView mapping.
Warmup mode provides simple feedback such as ball speed, club head speed, tempo, smash factor and estimated distance. Tempo training helps you evaluate which backswing and downswing timings are best for you, and it provides instant feedback. Virtual round allows you to simulate playing golf on any of the 41,000 preloaded courses. You can compete against a friend on the driving range, play in a tournament against other users around the world or try beating your personal best. To develop accuracy and consistency, target practice helps you focus on drives, short game or your all-around game. Test yourself, or play with a friend on the driving range.
Use It During Your Rounds
On the course, the launch monitor measures shot distance. For easy access during play, simply press the quick access radar button to open launch monitor functionality. In addition, you get the convenience of Touch Targeting on full-color course maps. Touch any point on the sunlight-readable display, and it shows the precise distance to that spot — fairway, hazard, landing area or the front, middle and back of the green. It also doubles as a digital scorecard with scoring options for Stroke Play, Stableford, Skins and Match Play with adjustable handicaps. Periodic course map updates are automatically sent to your device.
Compatible with the Garmin Golf™ App
Approach G80 works with the free Garmin Golf app, which lets you compete, compare and connect with fellow golfers playing on more than 41,000 courses worldwide. Players can post their results and can compare data, rankings and stats in the app.
