Garmin has launched a lightweight, ultra-thin GPS smartwatch with built-in sports and activity-tracking apps.

Golfers can download course maps from more than 38,000 courses worldwide, which stay up-to-date automatically, to vivoactive’s golf app.

The watch measures lay-up and dog-leg distance, as well as distance to the front, middle and back of the green.

Golfers can also keep individual stroke play scorecards and measure shot distance.

Vívoactive is not only ideal for golf, but other sports as well.

Helping users develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle, vívoactive captures more of their activities with GPS-enabled running, cycling, swimming and activity-tracking apps.

The watch features a sunlight-readable, high-resolution colour touchscreen and can be accessorised with interchangeable bands.

It also comes with a three-week battery life in watch/activity tracking mode or up to 10 hours using GPS.

Available in black or white from March 2015 at RRP £199.99 and £229.99 (heart rate monitor bundle).
