Garmin Approach G12 Golf GPS Watch
Garmin has added a new feature to their line of Garmin Approach G12 GPS watches. The Garmin Approach G12 is actually the second watch in the series to add a heart rate monitor. So, how does it compare to the original Garmin Approach? Garmin claims the Garmin Approach has a much more advanced technology inside compared to the Garmin Approach G10. Garmin claims that with the Garmin Approach G12 you can actually measure the amount of your exercise that you are doing, with an accuracy of better than ninety-five percent.
When you wear this watch it will indicate your heart rate with either a beep or a buzz. As you do your workouts you can then choose which type of display you would like on your Garmin Approach G12 watch. If you would like to have your watch tell you information during your actual workout then you can adjust the settings so that it does tell you statistics during your workout. In addition to heart rate tracking you can also track distance, time and even the amount of calories that you burn during your workout. This watch is capable of tracking both maximum as well as average heart rates.
Many Garmin watches allow you to select from an enormous variety of options when it comes to the actual workout information displayed on your Garmin Approach. You can customize the way that you see your information. This means that you can have Garmin tell you whether or not you won the race during your workout, or if you hit the green in the game. Garmin also lets you indicate the length of the course you ran, the number of holes you hit and what side of the green you hit it on. Garmin takes all of the manual elements out of the equation. You don't need to touch a button.
