10.28am 11th August 2021 - New Products

GPS brand Garmin has entered the portable launch monitor market with the release of the Approach R10. 

Requiring a paired compatible smartphone or tablet downloaded with the Garmin Golf app, and offering 10 hours of battery life, the device comes on a tripod and is placed behind the player to track more than a dozen metrics, including clubhead speed, ball speed, spin rates, launch angle, launch direction, smash factor and more. 

Shots are displayed on a shot dispersion chart via a smartphone, while recorded video clips of the golfer’s swing with visual metrics can also be similarly viewed.

The R10 also has access to a library of over 42,000 golf courses for simulator play for up to four golfers.

It has an RRP of £529.99.
