Fall Is Apple Picking Time, But It’s Also A Great Time For Golf!

Fall is one of those times of the year when people start to realize that the winter months are really not that far off. This makes them want to get in as much outdoor time as they can and luckily there are many different venues that happen this time of the year.

From people going on corn-maze adventures, to find the best crop of sweet, delicious apples and cider to take the kids, family, and friends on a hayride, with looking for that perfect pumpkin in the pumpkin patch at the end of the trip. Yes, Fall has a lot to offer, the clean air, that’s just starting to get a tinge of coolness in it. To the leaves on the trees beginning to change color and paint a magical landscape for us all to enjoy.

But the Fall months is also a great time to continue to enjoy a few rounds of golf before the winter winds start to blow and that white stuff begins to fall. Yes, Fall can be a great time for any golfer that’s looking to take a few strokes off of his/her game.

And if you're looking for a little help in turning your fairway shot from a decent one, to a shot that your friends will be a little jealous of, why not take a look at the Garmin Approach X40 Fitness Band.  Now, this watch will provide you with just a little advantage over your golfing buddies in as much as it will let you know the distance to the front, middle and back of the green while letting you know just where those hazards are so you can plan your shot accordingly. And besides the golfing advice, (naturally, you're going to be carrying your own bag and clubs since you don’t use a caddy) so your Garmin Approach can act as your tech-caddy, that just provides you with the pertinent information about the lay of the land. It also keeps track of how many steps you're taking around that course while keeping an eye on your heart rate. We don’t want to encounter any problems while you're playing a round or two now do we?

The Garmin Approach X40 is preloaded with 40,000 golf courses and highly sensitive GPS receiver. This makes this amazing wrist-band your ideal golfing partner. Whether you are playing on your local golf course or teeing off at some place new; the band’s high-sensitivity GPS receiver will provide you with accurate distance data. It will show precisely how far you are from the next pin on the crisp touchscreen display, even if you’re under the tree canopy.

This little wrist-based golf companion will keep you honest as well, in as much as it keeps a record of your score for each round with its built-in digital scorecard. After the round, you can save your score and later review your performance. You can also use Garmin Connect Mobile with your smartphone to upload and share your best performance with your golf buddies.

So, if you like golf, and I know I do, when are you going to get your own Garmin Approach X40 ? I already have mine and I’m taking advantage of all the features it has available. After all, who knows, with the X40, I just may hit a front 9 below 70! Now that would be a feat indeed. How about YOU?

Does Your Game Stand Up To The Back 9?

In the summer we always look forward to great weather. After all, the sun comes up early and sets later so that our days are longer than at any time of the year. How we spend that time dictates what we talk about when the winter winds begin to blow, and that white, wet snow begins to fall. Some of us like to take advantage of the summer sun and head out to a sandy beach or secluded pond to do some swimming, fishing or just plain soaking up all that sunshine.

But there is that group of men and women that can't wait for the snow to melt away from their favorite golf course so that they can begin to shake the rust off of not only their clubs but also themselves after being forced to watch the reruns of championship golf matches on the golf channel.

If your one of these golf enthusiasts, then you know the only way to improve your game is to practice, practice and more practice. Working on your swing, your long drive, chipping and of course your putting. Nothing does more to help improve your game than becoming familiar with the lay of the land that makes up your course. The different contours the fairways have, the various obstacles that the designer of the course made sure that it's laid out, with enough of a challenge so that it tests your mettle and don’t forget the greens. The lay of the greens can put added strokes to your game! Sand traps and water hazards have nothing compared to the way a green can devastate your putting game with various angles, slopes and cut-away runs that can send your ball, once you even make it onto the green, rolling back away from the pin to drop into a water hazard.

Well, the PGA Championship has just ended and there is still a full summer and fall season of Championship golf to watch and your own weekly games to take part in. If you want to help shave some strokes off of your game, you may want to consider giving yourself a little advantage. Now, we're not saying you need to be a little light with the pencil as your marking your scorecard, that just wouldn’t be on the up and, up right? No, we are talking about giving yourself a little advantage in the way of a technology advantage. We are speaking of a Golf Watch!

The Garmin Approach S60 GPS Golf Watch to be precise! This golf buddy provides precise distances to each location on the course, as well as “Plays-Like Distance”, which adjusts yardages to account for uphill and downhill shots so you can select the best club for the situation. And with Touch Targeting, you can touch any point on the map for precise measurement to that exact spot — including fairway, sand traps, water hazards and more. And when you're about to lay up for the pin, “Green View” gives you each green’s true shape from wherever you are on the course, and it allows you to manually drag-and-drop the pin into the correct location for the day for greater accuracy. “PinPointer” even tells you the direction to the pin when you have a blind shot.

And your getting more than just a “Golfers Helper" here, In fact, this watch can be used for more than just golfing with preloaded activity profiles for running, cycling, swimming and more. And with activity-tracking features, including the move bar, vibration alerts, calories and steps, the Approach S60 will help you stay fit, day in and day out.

So, there you have it. After all, using all the benefits technology has to offer is by no means cheating on your golf game, right? After all, you still need to hit the ball 😊

Exercise Is Where You Find It!

Here at HeartRateMonitorsUSA.com you know we are all about health and helping you to be as healthy as you can be. That’s why we bring you some of the best health tracking devices and some supporting accessories in a one-stop-shop, online store. Now if you know our staff, you know that we practice what we preach. We like to be physical and stay active. So when we leave our happy place of employment each day, we all go about our favorite activities.

Today, I’m going to zero in on a favorite of ours. It may not be taking a fast run in the morning or hitting a steep mountain trail up into the hills but it still counts as physical exercise. That is if you’re walking around and NOT taking a cart!

That’s right, I’m talking about hitting the links and carrying your own golf bag (weight avg. 30-35LBS) around with you as you try and hit that little white ball, (color, of course, is optional) into a 4 and ¼ inch hole in the ground. Oh yeah, there is a little flag marking the hole for you to aim at from a distance.

Now, you may not think that playing golf ranks with the “Cross-Fit” or HITT crowd… and your right! But playing golf and walking those 18 holes out in the sunshine, carrying your own clubs and going up and down the fairways and swinging those drivers and 9-irons does add up to you getting in a fair bit of exercise. After all, according to “Golf Week” and other sources, the average time it takes to play an 18-hole, round of golf is 4 hours. Since you’re walking, toting around that golf bag and taking a couple of swings every so often, you’re not only burning up some calories, but you're also working your core, your abs, and your legs and stretching your hamstrings to boot!

Now I like a little advantage over my playing companions, and use a Garmin Approach S60 Golf watch to help me get a leg-up, or swing up over my friends as we play. After all, using this great little gadget even helps me to hit the ball better in relationship to where the pin is and where my ball actually lies. It has a function called “Green View” It gives me each Green's true shape from wherever I am on the course, and it allows me to manually drag-and-drop the pin into the correct location for greater accuracy. PinPointer even tells me the direction to the pin when I have a blind shot. And since it uses the latest GPS it shows precise yardages to greens, hazards, and doglegs, on full-color course maps. How cool is that?

Now, as I said above, playing a round of golf, while it's not exactly like hitting the gym or running, walking or hiking up a mountain trail, I’m still getting the benefits of increased physical activity. And since I can enable the tracking function on my Garmin S60, I can also track the distance that I’m walking around on the course, and a number of calories I burned, while I’m out there, enjoying myself and getting some fresh air and sunshine to boot.

So, remember, the next time the topic comes up around the water cooler and your cohort is bragging on how much he/she worked out over the weekend. You can say with a smile on your face that you played a mean game of golf and happily burned over 1,400 calories while enjoying the sun and your golf buddies as you trekked around the links. And that’s not counting the other physical and mental benefits you got while having a great day and enjoying all the weekend had to offer.

So, who’s ready for some golf? You??
