Shot Scope V2 Launches - Biggest Innovation in GPS Golf Watches
The V2 combines GPS distance capability with Shot Scope’s industry-leading Performance Tracking, V2 fills a significant gap in the market. V2 is now available for pre-order at the introductory price of $210.
Golfers have long sought a device that combined GPS yardages and fully automatic performance tracking. Shot Scope’s in-house engineers have developed a product that meets the needs of the modern golfer while retaining the company’s trademark automatic club recognition technology and detailed performance statistics.
The V2 has three modes to suit the golfer’s playing requirements, GPS; PRO; and GPS+TRACK; each mode has been designed for ultimate flexibility. In both GPS and GPS+TRACK modes, the LCD screen displays distances to the front, middle and back of the green from the golfer’s real-time position using SMART GPS. Distances to hazards will be released in a software update later in the year.
Performance Tracking is activated in both PRO and GPS+TRACK modes. The watch works in the background to collect over 100 Tour-level statistics, broken down into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game and putting. Performance statistics of this caliber have previously only been available to Tour players. No manual input or phone use is required.
The V2 uses Shot Scope’s proprietary course mapping data which is compiled and quality checked by a team of elite golfers.
Following the success of V1 - a sell-out pre-sale campaign attracted over 2,000 users in six months in over 35 countries and 22 states in the U.S., as well as the European and Ladies European Tours – V2’s launch has been highly anticipated. It combines the established GPS market with the fast growing performance tracking market.
