Garmin's Approach Z82 golf rangefinder takes everything you love about their previous rangefinder (the Approach Z80) and adds a ton of cool new features, so you're able to assess your next shot with a wealth of information at the ready. You'll get details about yardage, obstacles, pin position, wind info, hazards, and the lay of the land in a jiffy, so you can determine your club and shot approach with the confidence of a seasoned pro.
Use it anywhere and with ease
The Approach Z82 comes preloaded with info on over 41,000 courses around the world, so you're likely to be able to use it at your favorite spots. And you can add map updates as they become available through Garmin's site. The Z82 boasts image stabilization and a flag finder feature that makes it easy to find the range to the flag — it even delivers a slight vibration to let you know you're locked in. The view shows the hole at up to 6X magnification in crisp detail. This waterproof companion also boasts up to 15 hours of battery life between charges.
Accurate to a "tee"
The Approach Z82's laser rangefinder is the most accurate available, but the Z82 does a lot more. When you look in the display, you'll see a full-color view plus a 2-D view of the hole you're playing, complete with distances to the front and back of the green. Activate the rangefinder and you'll get an accuracy of within 10" to the pin. Now it's up to you to hit it stiff.
Wind and hazard info
Wondering about what could come between you and double-eagle glory? The Z82 boasts Hazard View, which lets you scroll through each hazard and layup distance on the map. And if you're concerned about how the wind might affect your game, you can see wind speed and direction on the Approach's screen, so you'll know how to handle club selection and swing direction.
The PlaysLike Distance feature takes the guesswork out of uphill and downhill shots, by providing adjusted yardages that take elevation changes into account. You'll never be stuck guessing which club to hit. When you're teeing off, the Laser Range Arc feature draws an arc on the course map that lets you know which hazards are in play. And don't worry about blind shots — the PinPointer feature shows you the direction of the green, no matter where you are.
Get tournament ready
Tournament rules can be a drag, but in the name of good sportsmanship the Approach Z82 is willing to meet serious players halfway. You can engage Tournament Mode on the rangefinder, which disables the PinPointer and PlaysLike Distance features. You can still take advantage of the Approach's other features, and a light on the rangefinder lets your opponents know you're playing by the rules.
Compatible with the Garmin Golf app
Garmin's Golf app for your smartphone is a great way to stay connected with fellow golfers, and the Z82's compatible with the app. By pairing the rangefinder with the app, you can keep score and see detailed statistics on your phone between holes.
And yes, things can get a little feisty as you're approaching the 19th hole. Or maybe you're in a hurry to get out of those plaid pants and sweater vest. If you happen to leave your Approach Z82 behind on the course or in the clubhouse, you can use the "Find My Garmin" feature of the Garmin Golf app to locate your rangefinder before it accidentally goes home with someone else.
