Xero A1i PRO Bow Sight

Garmin Launches Its Most High-Tech Bow Sight Ever: The Xero A1i PRO

Released today, Garmin’s Xero A1i PRO Bow Sight adds on to its A1 Series with a beefier and techier second-generation bow sight.

When Garmin released the first iteration of the auto-ranging Xero A1 bow sight in 2018, archers rejoiced. Yardage could be pinned whether at rest or full draw, eliminating a lot of the gray area hunters would fill in once a moving target had been ranged.

Now, after a few years of input, the second generation of the A1 series hits the shelves. At $1,300, the Xero A1i PRO Bow Sight is a considerable jump from the $900 of the previous generation. But the sight brings a lot of new tech to the surface.

Note: Prior to purchase, make sure your state legalities allow for hunting with the Xero A1i bow sights. Some legalities vary across the U.S.

The Xero A1i PRO Bow Sight

It’s always fun to see a second-gen product level up its game.

For the A1i PRO, the changes mostly lie in the ability to make micro-adjustments for elevation, windage, and laser reticle alignment. In addition to this, the sight calculates a pin stack for your setup’s maximum distance.

Simply enter your draw length, bow speed, and arrow diameter, and the Xero A1i PRO automatically builds a pin stack to your bow’s maximum distance. The farthest it will calibrate to is 100 yards. It also has dual pin colors, as does the Garmin A1i.

Like Garmin’s sights before it, the Xero A1i PRO lives on a full year of battery life, easily removes from your bow, and is compatible with Garmin GPS devices.

Check out some of the new features in the video below. Expect a 3- to 5-week wait for delivery if you’re looking to put one of these bad boys on your bow this season.
