TaylorMade Golf has teamed up with tech experts Garmin to offer a special edition of the Approach S70 smartwatch, said to blend iconic TaylorMade styling with Garmin's game-improvement technologies.
Available now, the watch comes with a hefty RRP of £649.99 and features a new copper colourway which is a nod to iconic products in TaylorMade's past.
“This collaboration with Garmin is centered around two brands that are focused on making golfers better by blending both of our roots in innovation into a special edition of this game-changing product. The cohesion of TaylorMade’s iconic copper colourway and logo with the Garmin Approach S70 was a no-brainer for us to collaborate with the brand that is at the forefront of bringing the best technology and features to the wrists of golfers everywhere.”
John Gonsalves, TaylorMade Vice President Direct to Consumer.
The watch features a 1.4" AMOLED touch screen and holds more than 43,000 golf courses. A range of features are there to help make life easier on the course, including round and shot tracking with shot dispersion date for each club, as well as a PlaysLike distance and green contour data.
The virtual caddie tool suggests a club based on factors like historical swing data, elevation, wind speed, wind direction and more. The Approach S70 has a battery life of up to 16 days in smartwatch mode, and 20 hours when using GPS.
Alongside golf, users can also use the watch for activities such as yoga, running and strength training. There is also 24/7 health monitoring, heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring, as well as a Morning Report for personalised insights.
“We’re honoured to collaborate with TaylorMade on a limited-edition Approach S70 golf smartwatch. Along with being one of the most widely recognised names in golf, TaylorMade is synonymous with revolutionary and innovative products, which is something we strive for at Garmin. Golfers of all ages and skill levels will be excited to get the Approach S70 – TaylorMade Edition on their wrists!”
Susan Lyman, Garmin Vice President Global Consumer Marketing.
