Cons / What Customers Don't Like:
The battery life could definitely be better since you can’t expect your tracker to work more than 9 hours with GPS turned on.
Customers have reported that the app can feel buggy sometimes but that might be improved with future updates.
The price is definitely high but it’s something you need to pay if you want a high-end tracker like this one.
Garmin Approach X40 is definitely a great fitness tracker for people who are as serious as they can be about their preferred activity. However, it’s not perfect and certain things could use some improvement if Garmin wants to justify their high price tag on this one. This is still an awesome fitness tracker and it includes every feature you would want to see on a golfing fitness tracker.
