TaylorMade and Garmin have combined their passion for golf to create a unique and exclusive TaylorMade-branded Garmin Approach S70. The watch features the TaylorMade “Metal-T” logo on the button crown enclosed by a TaylorMade exclusive copper ring around the bezel with TaylorMade and Garmin markings on the keepers. The watch bands are brought together with a copper clasp.

The unique copper colourway draws inspiration from the colour that is enriched in TaylorMade’s history, but spring boarded into the modern era on Garmin’s Approach S70 smartwatch. The watch is a synergy between both brands, who strive to drive innovation and performance forward.

A stunning 1.4’’ AMOLED touch screen display brings more than 43,000 courses to life and features all the tools golfers can use to help lower their handicap. Tools include advanced round and shot tracking with shot dispersion data for each club, as well as an enhanced PlaysLike distance feature and green contour data (subscription required).

From the driving range to the final putt, the TaylorMade Garmin Approach S70 covers golfers of all skills. The virtual caddie tool suggests a club based on a variety of factors, including historical swing data, elevation, wind speed, wind direction and more. The Approach S70 can hold a charge for up to 16 days in smartwatch mode and up to 20 hours when using GPS.

Multi-sports functionality covers activities from yoga and running to strength training. Utilising advanced features like 24/7 health monitoring, heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring, this smartwatch delivers personalised insights on the Morning Report, including Sleep Score, HRV, weather, daily activities and positive affirmations.

“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, ” said John Gonsalves, TaylorMade Vice President Direct to Consumer. “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.”

Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Marketing Susan Lyman added: “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.”

The TaylorMade x Garmin Approach S70 is available at www.taylormadegolf.com starting Nov. 15  at a cost of €749.99.
