Video: There’s No Other Sight Like Garmin’s Auto-Ranging Digital Bow Sight
OutdoorHub Reporters 01.10.18
Speaking of things you need to see to believe, look at what Garmin just came out with . . .
Garmin International Inc. announced today, the Xero A1 and A1i, two groundbreaking auto-ranging digital laser bow sights that automatically measure the distance to a target and thus provides a precise, virtual lighted pin for the shot.
“The Xero bow sight is truly a game-changer in the archery world. It helps take the guesswork out of ranging a target,” said Dan Bartel, vice president of worldwide sales.
“When that buck of a lifetime walks by, knowing your precise yardage and having the exact pin to shoot is often the difference between making that shot or going home empty-handed.”
As detailed in the press release, the sight comes with a single-button trigger that hunters can mount on their bow’s grip. This allows the shooter to range targets while at rest, or more importantly, at full draw.
With the Xero bow sight, archers also have the ability to customize their sight pins for single or multiple pin configurations depending on what better fits their eye.
Some jurisdictions regulate or prohibit the use of electronic bow sights for hunting, so always be sure you know and obey all hunting regulations before using this device.
Here’s a list of states the sight is LEGAL:
Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Deleware, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
The bow sights were first introduced at the 2018 Archery Trade Association (ATA) Trade Show in Indianapolis.
