New Device Boasts Expanded Feature Set Alongside GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics
(STAMFORD, CT) – Arccos Golf – maker of the game’s only GPS + Live Shot Tracking + Tour Analytics platform – will introduce Arccos Driver at Booth 3423 during the upcoming 2016 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL.
Starting January 27, Arccos Driver will be available for a limited pre-order at www.arccosdriver.com. The product will premiere in April at Apple stores globally, DICK'S Sporting Goods locations nationwide and other leading retailers.
“We aim to innovate in a manner that makes golf more exciting, addictive and fun for everyone from beginners to Tour players,” says Arccos CEO Sal Syed. “Arccos Driver accomplishes that by offering entirely new ways for people to compete with their friends, track their stats and improve performance.”
The Arccos system features a set of 14 virtually weightless sensors that easily attach to the end of a grip. Paired just once via Bluetooth to the Arccos app, these automatically deliver information on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. The free app also provides Advanced GPS for more than 30,000 courses.
Widely heralded as one of the game’s most innovative and beneficial technologies, Arccos is endorsed by 2014 FedExCup Champion Billy Horschel and two-time World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski.
Further distinguishing Arccos are a suite of social features. These allow users to follow other players, see who is following them, and receive round updates – including holes, stats and bests – directly to their in-app social stream. Instructors and coaches can use this as a tool to “follow” players, instantly receiving their stats upon completion of a round, or gathering valuable information on overall performance via deep dives into statistics, past rounds, Tour Analytics and more.
Developed in conjunction with golf’s most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders, Tour Analytics draws from his work with PGA Tour star Zach Johnson and many others. It automatically breaks down a players’ handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting – helping golfers:
- Gain insight into what every shot means
- Understand exactly how each part of their game contributes to scoring
- Explore comparative data in each of the five components from golfers with the same handicap
- Evaluate patterns across their entire golf history, supporting refinement of on-course tactics
Now available at major golf retailers and better pro shops nationwide, and www.arccosgolf.com, Arccos is trusted by top instructors who rely on the system to help their students recognize and correct faults, such as club distance gaps, noticeable shot dispersion patterns and other problem areas.
Led by a team of Ivy League engineers, rocket scientists, PhD’s and designers, Arccos Golf is named after a function of advanced mathematics.
