Tee Up from Home or the Driving Range with the New Garmin Approach R10

Garmin Malaysia recently launched the Approach R10, a lightweight portable golf launch monitor designed to help golfers improve their game at home, indoors or at the driving range. The new device boasts more than a dozen key metrics1 shown in real-time and is not limited to clubhead speed, ball speed, swing tempo, ball spin and launch angle. Golfers of all skill levels can now truly rely on the Approach R10 to fine-tune their game.


When paired with the Garmin Golf app, players can also utilise the Training Mode to recognize strengths and areas of improvement, automatically record video clips to analyse a player’s swing and make use of the entertaining Home Tee Hero golf simulator 2 to master and enjoy over 42,000 golf courses worldwide.


“With a combined lightweight portability and fun, easy-to-use platform, the much-anticipated Approach R10 can help you work on your game wherever and whenever,” said Mr. Scoppen Lin, Director of Garmin Asia. “Whether you are tied up with a busy schedule or facing impending weather, you can still work on your golf swing from the comfort of home or virtually take a shot anywhere in the world. Either way, the Approach R10 keeps you golfing.”


The Approach R10 conveniently includes a versatile phone mount that golfers can easily attach to a golf bag or place on the ground as a kickstand to improve viewing during play and accessibility with the Garmin Golf app. And with up to 10 hours of battery life, golfers can play longer with the Approach R10.





Fine-tune your game

With the Approach R10’s new Training Mode feature, golfers can track stats for each club and easily break down a slick shot dispersion chart based on estimated ball flight.1 Once training is out of the way, users can take their game worldwide with the Home Tee Hero simulator and enjoy friendly weekly tournaments with all the scores posted to a leaderboard on the Garmin Golf app2. What’s more, automatically recorded video clips showing real stats overlaid on each shot can be stored in the cloud so golfers can see and analyse their own swing.
