Swingbyte launches industry’s first Virtual Coach mobile app platform

Swingbyte, a motion analytics company that offers top analysis and feedback of golf swings, has taken its product to the next level with its brand new Virtual Coach platform. The free mobile app uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyze golfers’ swings and offer video drills and tips for improvement. Just a hint: You’ll want to add the Swingbyte to your holiday wish list!

While Swingbyte has always offered key metrics and data for improvement, the new app helps golfers of all levels by using the data points to offer instant, personalized lessons and drills.

“Up to this point, Swingbyte was a great training tool for the knowledgeable golfer, but helping the average golfer understand and utilize data to correct their swing faults is the next step,” said Alex Pedenko, Swingbyte CEO and Co-Founder, in a press release. “Virtual Coach will do just that by providing highly personalized, easy-to-understand drills and lessons.”

Swingbyte appWith the updates, the already affordable Swingbyte device ($169 plus free expedited U.S. shipping at PlayBetter) becomes even more valuable. The updated app is more than just a list of data; it’s a comprehensive, virtual coach! Golfers of all levels will appreciate the update as they watch their shots go further and strokes get shaved off.

The featured instructional content on Virtual Coach is Plane Truth Golf, founded by top PGA TOUR instructors Jim Hardy and Chris O’Connell. Plane Truth Golf currently has more than 250 instructors from 15+ countries, and many work with high-level players. During developmental stages of the Virtual Coach AI, Plane Truth instructors reviewed impact and ball flight data from thousands of swings and tagged the faults in each swing. You can be confident that the feedback you receive comes from tried-and-tested data from top instructors.

If you’re unfamiliar with Swingbyte, here’s how it works: Simply clip the lightweight device onto your club – from driver to putter! – and sync it via Bluetooth. Then, swing away! Every swing you take will be recorded and analyzed. The sensor captures key metrics and transmits your swing data and an interactive 3D image of each swing to your smartphone or tablet device. From there, you’ll receive personalized video drills to take your game to the next level.

“We’ve been working closely with Swingbyte to analyze data and create the lessons for over a year, and we’re excited to hear the response from golfers,” Hardy said in a release. “With Virtual Coach, golfers can now use this wearable technology to understand key swing faults and work to instantly improve their game anytime, anywhere.”

While the updated app is currently only available for Apple devices, Swingbyte is compatible with iOS devices, Android devices and Google Glass.

Build your PlayBetter Holiday Golf Wish List in Four Easy Steps

Golfers: Do you already have your eyes on certain golf gadgets, training aids and other products for the 2014 holiday season? Maybe you’ve been checking out the new Garmin Approach S6 Golf GPS Watch or eyeing up a new HIRZL golf glove.

Well, whatever tool you’re looking to get you hands on, make sure you let your friends or family know! Or else, you might get stuck with an ugly sweater, a gift card to a restaurant with the food you can’t stand, a fruitcake or another gift that will sit around to collect dust.

It’s easy to create a wish list of golf goodies on PlayBetter.com, and then share your list to let others know EXACTLY what you want.

Here are the four easy steps to take:

1. Create a PlayBetter.com account (if you don’t already have one)

playbetter-create-accountAt the very top of PlayBetter.com, you’ll see “Sign In” and “Create an Account.” If you’ve never made an account or bought a product from PlayBetter, click “Create an Account”. I’m not exaggerating when I say that this takes two minutes. Not only will this set up an account for your wish list, but it will also make checkout so much easier for future shopping.

2. Make and name your wish list

wish-list-landing-page2Once you’re signed into your account, you’ll be taken to your account page. There, on the right side of the page, you’ll see text that says “Wishlists”. Click on that, and then add a new wishlist. Name it, and we strongly selecting “I want to be able to share this list” so that others can publicly see which golf gadgets are on your radar.

3. Get shopping!

golf-wish-list-addYou’re now ready to go! Click on any product page of a product, and below the buy box, select “Add to Wishlist”. All of the products will then be added to your wishlist. Create one list, create 10! (Whatever it takes for people to get the hint.)

4. Share your wishlist!

wish-list-golfWhen you create a public list, PlayBetter.com will give you a customized URL that you can share with people who may hook you up with an awesome gift this year.

Beyond a wishlist for you, you can get creative with these lists! Use it to build a page of training aids your husband or wife may like, compile products that your boss will love or make a list of golf fitness products to get you inspired for the new year.

As always, if you have any questions about the wish list or our products, feel free to give us a call at 1-(888)-738-5527 or shoot us an email at help@playbetter.com. We hope you get your wish!
