Trying to crush a little white ball hundreds of yards into a tiny hole is a tough prospect, even for professional golfers. But there’s a lot of tech available these days to help you improve your game if you can’t afford to play every round with a professional caddy or a PGA-certified instructor. And Garmin’s Approach G80 is amongst the best options out there.

Combining all of the best aspects of golf rangefinders and GPS devices, this top-of-the-line course assistant features an integrated launch monitor capable of tracking your clubhead speed, ball speed, smash factor, swing tempo, and estimated distance. It will also track your stats and course location in real time. Of course, if that were all it could do, it wouldn’t be all that special. What really sets it apart, however, is the ability to play virtual tournaments. Both on a real-world course or any of the 41,000 preloaded courses (for use while you’re working on your game at the driving range), you can compete against your own best score or against scores of other golfers around the world. Even better, it’s compatible with Garmin’s Golf app, so you can further compete, compare, and connect with fellow golfers everywhere. With a 15 hours-per-charge battery to handle your 36-hole outings, the Garmin Approach G80 is available now for $500.

Purchase: $500
