Track like an expert

The Approach R10 lets you track more 20 important metrics for your swing, including club head speed, ball speed, ball spin, launch angle, launch direction, club face angle, smash factor, and more. With your paired smartphone or tablet, it can automatically record video clips of your swing and associate them with the metrics of that swing — you'll even see the metrics overlaid on the video for easier comprehension. Driving Range Mode lets you tracks stats for each club and shows a shot dispersion chart based on estimated ball flight. Garmin includes a phone mount so you can attach your phone to your golf bag and see your swing results in real time on the Golf app.

Connect with the Garmin Golf app

The Garmin Golf app is where you see all your data recorded by the Approach R10, in easy-to-follow formats that can be configured to fit your needs. The app keeps track of your performance in a number of ways so you can see where you need more work and where you're improving. You can pull up old games, or keep up with weekly leaderboards by uploading scorecards. You can even create your own tournaments and invite friends. You can also store video clips of your shots in the cloud and view them at your leisure.

The Golf app is free to download and most of the features don't require an in-app purchase, but it also offers a premium membership level which gives you even more functionality. With your premium Garmin Golf app paid subscription, you and your friends can access Garmin's Home Tee Hero to play virtual rounds on your home course or any of the 42,000 courses available around the world, and participate in a weekly tournament with a global leaderboard. Your Approach R10 purchase gives you a free 30-day trial subscription.

Do more

Garmin loaded the R10 with a rechargeable battery with up to 10 hours of life between charges so it's ready for marathon practice sessions. It also includes a convenient carry case so you can transport it from the house to the range and back again with ease. And rough weather won't stop your practice, thanks to the R10's IPX7 waterproof rating. It also works with the E6 Connect content library for virtual golfing; you get five free courses on the iOS version of E6 Golf with your Approach R10 purchase.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Garmin Approach R10 is a radar-powered portable launch monitor that helps you step up your game. The waterproof (IPX7) device measures and tracks more than a dozen golf metrics to help you develop a more consistent swing. The portable Approach R10 can be used at home, indoors, or at the driving range. The device pairs with your smartphone via Bluetooth, and with data on over 42,000 golf courses worldwide, you and three other golfers can play virtual rounds on any course you desire. The Approach R10 comes with a magnetic tripod, a 2-piece bag clip for your phone, and a USB cable. Dimensions: Width: 3.483", Height: 2.766" (5.625" on tripod), Depth 0.988"; Weight 5.22 ounces (7.79 ounces with tripod).

Golf Metrics: The Approach R10 should be placed on the ground approximately 6 to 8 feet behind the tee location, and aligned with the ball and the target of your shot. In Driving Range mode, you can practice on a virtual driving range and receive numerous metrics after each swing. On your paired smartphone, you can view the following shot metrics:

  • Club Head Speed (accurate to within +/- 3 mph)
  • Club Face Angle
  • Club Path Angle
  • Angle of Attack
  • Ball Speed (accurate to within +/- 1 mph)
  • Launch Angle (accurate to within +/- 1 degree)
  • Launch Direction (accurate to within +/- 1 degree)
  • Spin Axis
  • Spin Rate
  • Apex Height
  • Smash Factor
  • Carry Distance (accurate to within +/- 5 yards)
  • Total Distance
  • Deviation Distance

Swing Capture: The Swing Capture feature uses your paired smartphone's camera to automatically record videos of your swings while you're on the driving range. Each recorded swing can be associated with the advanced swing metrics (listed above) recorded for that shot. Using the included phone mount and bag clip, you can mount the phone to your golf bag so you can record videos of your swings.

Phone Holder: The included phone holder is a spring-loaded clamp that securely holds your phone in portrait orientation. The holder works with phones between 2.3" and 3.5" wide. The bag clip has a ball mount for the phone holder, allowing you to position the phone to capture your shot. The phone mount should only be attached to a stationary bag.

Home Tee Hero: Using the Garmin Golf app's Golf Simulator, you can test your skills on the driving range, and play virtual rounds on any of 42,000 courses worldwide. With a premium (paid) membership to Garmin Golf, you and up to three of your friends can play virtual rounds of your home course, a course you're about to play, or any course of your choice. A free 30-day trial of Garmin Golf is available. While you play, your smartphone displays a 3D rendering of each hole, along with distances to the hole, elevation difference between the ball and the target, and the wind speed and direction. After hitting your shot, the app calculates the distance and accuracy, and counts each stroke. Hitting the ball out of bounds or into the water adds a penalty stroke. There is no putting in the virtual round, so additional strokes are added based on the accuracy of your approach shot.

TruGolf E6 Connect: E6 Connect is one of the highest quality, most lifelike golf software available. You can use the Approach R10 with the E6 Connect software to view all of your recorded shots in detailed, high-definition graphics. You can also teach, train, play, or compete with other golfers. TruGolf E6 Connect is available with a paid subscription for desktop, as well as iOS devices.

Garmin Golf App: The Garmin Golf App pulls all of your golf training, practices, and rounds together in one convenient place on your smartphone. You'll need Garmin Golf on your smartphone to record and view your golf metrics, club performance, and videos. Garmin Golf is available for Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch running iOS 13.0 or later, and for Android devices (software version varies with device).

Battery: The Garmin Approach R10 is powered by a built-in Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. The battery charges via USB with the included Micro USB cable. You can view the remaining battery power on the Garmin Golf app, when it's paired. Estimated battery life is up to 10 hours.

Q
the lofts listed for my irons are wrong in the preset menu, can you manually change the lofts ?
[ michael  Jul 01, 2022 ]

It looks like the lofts can not be changed manually, Michael. It looks like what Garmin advises when the swing metrics appear inaccurate is to try and dial in the placement of the Garmin Approach R10 a little. I've posted a helpful link below to the Garmin site, this goes a little deeper into setup than the included instructions and could be helpful, take a look! We always provide our Technical Support for life with all products, so give us a call too if you prefer! https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=La5131S09h2hc5XOMJqpX8&productID=695391&tab=topics&topicTag=region_troubleshootingaxt
