​GAME GOLF launches free app with real-time game tracker and rangefinder for iOS and Android devices

GAME GOLF, the first wearable device that tracks and displays a golfer’s round, announced its new GAME GOLF Tracking App on April 15, 2015. The free app allows golfers to track their game in real-time using GPS rangefinder technology, and is available for iOS and Android devices.

Game Golf App Course“If you don’t truly understand your game it’s hard to improve. The free GAME GOLF Tracking App allows golfers to see their shot performance in real-time, something which many amateur golfers will never have
had access to before,” said John McGuire, CEO of GAME GOLF. “Further, it affords everyone access to the GAME GOLF platform to gather stats, collect data and share their game with friends, family, coaches and instructors.”

The app showcases an aerial view of each hole and distances to key locations with the GPS Rangefinder feature. Golfers will be able to see greens hit in regulations, fairway accuracy, scrambling percentage, putts per hole, club distances and much more.

No purchase of the GAME GOLF physical device is required to use the new app. However, if you’re looking for the best experience on the course, pair it with GAME GOLF for the full experience.

While GAME GOLF is a truly innovative product, it is one of the more cost-effective products on the market, currently just  $199.99 at PlayBetter.com. The new, real-time app joins the impressive amount of features already available through GAME GOLF and GAMEGOLF.com.

Simply “tag” each club to your GAME GOLF device, and then go! GAME GOLF comes with 18 unique tags for your clubs. Golfers attach the tags to their clubs, and then tag them to their wearable device before taking your shot. That’s it.

GAME GOLF’s technology will record what clubs you use and where you use them. While it requires little effort on your part, you’ll be given a full report on each club, which will take your game to the next level!

​Six reasons to check out the Garmin Approach S6 Golf GPS Watch

Recently, we got in our first few shipments of the new Garmin Approach S6 Golf GPS Watch. We love Garmin products because we know that we’ll be able to provide golfers with reliable, accurate and top-of-the-line golf training aids.

And the Garmin S6 is no different. Coming in a sleek new package, we were excited to take out the new Garmin watch to test-drive.

More than 38,000 courses from around the world are available without any additional fees or downloads on this watch. And, like all Garmin GPS devices, the S6 will greatly improve golfers’ games. While it stands alone as an awesome golf gadget, it also syncs with Garmin Connect, a comprehensive app and online resource that allows you to keep your scores, track improvements, compare yourself to other golfers and much more.

Here are six reasons why you’ll love having a S6 wrapped around your wrist.

1. Accuracy

2. Battery life

Out golfing, the last thing that you want to have to do is worry about recharging your watch battery. We know how frustrating it is to have a GPS unit die on you in the middle of an outing.

Well, the S6 can keep up with you for a full weekend of golf. It can be used for up to 10 hours on full GPS mode and up to 20 weeks as a regular watch!

3. Touch screen

We can’t say enough about the next touch screen from the S6.

The full color is crisp, especially when under the bright sun. The CourseView button lets you view the entire layout of the hole – including the teebox, fairway and green – all in full color.

4. Swing metrics and blind shot assistance

The swing metrics feature on the S6 offers both SwingTempo and TempoTraining. As you swing, the watch will measure the relationship between your up- and downswing. Then, the TempoTraining will help improve your technique as it helps you develop your perfect golf swing ratio. Develop more consistency with the S6.

The watch also comes with blind shot assistance. Is there an obstacle hindering your view, or are you in a trap? No problem! The GPS watch gives you an arrow that points you in the right direction of the hole.

5. Sleek design

The new watch comes in two different color option – light and dark. Compared to past models, the S6 sits flatter against your wrist. It won’t feel bulky on your wrist, but you’ll have so many great features to improve your game.

6. Everyday watch

With its nice design and long battery life, this GPS watch can transition off the links to an everyday watch. It tells time, but also has a timer and odometer – both helpful tools for on and off the course!
