Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Garmin Approach X40

  1. Mike asked on
    Can you switch the fareignheit scale to celcious?
    1. Peter replied on
      The weather function with temperature is only displayed via a paired Smartphone, so this information is coming from phone weather app not from within the watch.
  2. Milan asked on
    Where to find full list of preloaded golf

    1. Karen replied on
      I haven't tried this approach but if you tap on the golfer it will search and list all courses in your location
  3. Phil asked on
    Does the watch give calories burnt when weight training etc?
    1. Mark replied on
      Gives calories burned for all activities, however I've only used it for Golf and running, download the garmin connect app for your smart phone and sync with the x40 for more accurate data!
