Shot Navi Scores High Marks with Four GPS Devices at 2017 PGA Show

Japan’s #1 Sports Activity Tech Company introduces value priced product line giving consumers more data points, navigation modes, and greater accuracy

(COSTA MESA, Calif.) – Shot Navi, Japan’s #1 Golf GPS manufacturer, introduced four GPS devices at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, January 25-27.  Since 2008, Shot Navi has manufactured cutting-edge range finder designs that are known and respected for their precision accuracy.  The Japan Professional Golf Association (JPGA) endorses Shot Navi and are the GPS devices of choice for JPGA Tour caddies.

“Although Shot Navi is new to the U.S. market, the parent company Techtuit Group is a leading global sports technology company,” said Nate Iida, Director of Sales. “We were pleased with the traffic, buyer interest and sample requests from some of the major regional retailers including ProGolf Discount, Carl’s Golf Land and New York Golf Centers.”

Shot Navi unveiled two wearable GPS devices, one hand held, and the world’s smallest clip-on voice GPS.

The “W1-GL” is Shot Navi’s #1 selling GPS watch.  It comes preloaded with 30,000 courses in 80 countries worldwide.  The energy-efficient design is equipped with a battery that lasts up to eight hours of play with the GPS and four weeks in watch mode.  Standard features include precise distances to front, center and back of the green and hazards, shot distance measurement, digital scorecard and an invertible black and white display.  The W1-GL GPS watch comes in two colors, black or white.

The new “HuG” is a sleek, stylish watch with the same GPS tracking features as the original W1-GL plus the added benefits of a heart rate monitor and activity tracker all in one convenient device.  The lithium-ion battery lasts 10 hours in GPS mode and 90 days in watch mode. The “HuG” combines fashion with functionality and fitness, offering golfers the total solution in technology tracking. The HuG is available in black or white.

The “Neo 2” is a simple, compact and easy-to-use yet powerful handheld GPS unit. The Neo 2 provides Shot Navi’s standard GPS features and multiple view functions along with three bonus features - a large font view, voice navigation and automatic green view.  The automatic green view adjusts the distances precisely on the angle of approach to the green taking the guesswork out of a golfer’s short game.  The Neo 2 is available in black, white and yellow.

The “V2” is the world’s smallest and lightest Voice GPS in golf.  The simple, hands-free GPS unit conveniently clips on your belt or hat and weighs only .85 ounces.  With automatic start and course/hole recognition and standard Shot Navi precision yardages, this tiny yet powerful Voice GPS is a low tech, extremely user-friendly GPS option.  The V2 is available in black or white.

The complete Shot Navi product line will be available in April 2017.  Prices range from $89 - $199. For more information, go to www.shotnavi.net.
