The Garmin Xero A1 Auto-Ranging Digital Sight

What Makes This Garmin Xero Bow Sight Next-Gen?

It's a laser rangefinder.

In a nutshell, the Xero A1 auto-ranging bow sight literally removes the guesswork. Simply range, aim, and shoot. No measuring yardage to your target, hiding your movement, and then manipulating your bow sight.

It's a bow sight.

The pin, or the digital LED dot on the viewing screen, is a feature you won't find on most bow sights. You get pinpoint accuracy without the obstruction of physical pins.

You can also program "fixed pins" on the Xero A1 that will display pins that you've set at 10/20/30 yards (or whatever you set up), and you can use the Xero like a fixed-pin bow sight.

Other Xero A1 Features:

  • Get instant angle-compensated distance to game up to 100 yards away or up to 300 yards away on reflective targets, at rest or full draw.
  • LED pins automatically adjust brightness according to conditions.
  • Eliminate cant from your shot with built-in level indicators that appear as blinking pins on your sight. Great for hunting from stands.
  • Mount Xero A1's silent button trigger in the best location for your grip so one finger can silently activate the laser rangefinder to give you the distance and exact aim point you need for the shot.
  • Record and review your performance during practice shooting sessions, and track your stats over time.
  • Get up to 1 year of battery life—about 25,000 ranges—from 2 lithium AAA batteries (included).
  • Aluminum material makes this Garmin bow sight super light!
