TaylorMade and Garmin launch special edition Approach S70 smartwatch

TaylorMade and Garmin have created a special edition Approach S70 smartwatch which blends TaylorMade styling and Garmin technologies.

The TaylorMade x Garmin Approach S70 (RRP £649.99) features the TaylorMade Metal-T logo on the button crown enclosed by a copper ring around the bezel, with TaylorMade and Garmin markings on the keepers. The watch bands are also brought together with a copper clasp.

A 1.4ins AMOLED touch screen display brings more than 43,000 courses to life and features tools golfers can use to help lower their scores, including advanced round and shot tracking with shot dispersion data for each club, enhanced PlaysLike distances, and green contour data (subscription required).

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

“This collaboration with Garmin is centred 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. It 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,” said John Gonsalves, TaylorMade vice president direct to consumer.

“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,” added Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president global consumer marketing.
