Arccos Golf has launched a new Link to meet demand for its automatic shot tracking wearable first introduced two years ago.
Designed to be worn on a player’s belt, waistband or pocket, the new Arccos Link (Gen2) offers golfers can automatically record shots without having to carry a phone on the course.
As well as its sleeker look and improved clip functionality, the new device incorporates advanced microphone enhancements with protective vents.
“When we launched Link back in 2020 it gave golfers the freedom to play golf without their phone and still get their powerful data. It was a game-changer and helped us to achieve explosive growth worldwide,” said Arccos CEO and co -founder Sal Syed.
“Now, with technical improvements, the new Link is even better. More golfers will play the game their way, with or without their phone, and be able to harness personal on course data, understand strengths and weakness leading to faster improvement and more fun,“ he added.
The weather-resistant device weighs less than an ounce (25 grams) and is smaller in length than a bank card – measuring approximately 2.25 inches in length, 1.25 inches in width and 0.75 of an inch deep.
It has a battery life of up to 10 hours, with quick charging via a micro-USB cable and players using Link will extend their phone battery life by up to 25 per cent.
Once paired with the Arccos Caddie app, Smart Sensors seamlessly sync with the lightweight wearable to provide golfers with the ability to track shots in real time. Link then automatically transfers scoring data to the phone app via Bluetooth, either during or after the round, depending on player preference.
Arccos members using Link can either keep their phone in a golf bag, cart, trolley or back pocket for quick access to the game’s first A.I. powered rangefinder and Caddie advice.
Players can also use their phone to listen to music, take calls or videos during the round. Additional functionality of Link includes the option for a player to mark the exact hole location on the green with a simple push of main button when standing next to the pin to provide more accurate putting insights and to pinpoint areas for player improvement via the exclusive Strokes Gained Analytics software.
Like the New Smart Sensors (Gen 3+), the latest device is now packaged in a more sustainable box, as the brand continues its drive toward more environmentally friendly products.
Arccos has also expanded the remote programmable features of Link, so it will provide the most current shot tracking models – something previously unavailable with the original device. In addition, Link will deliver enhanced shot tracking with new Arccos automatic shot tracking technology introduced last month.
Arccos automatically tracks shots while delivering a comprehensive in-round insights. The system is highlighted by an A.I.-powered rangefinder, smart club distances and caddie advice.
Both the Arccos system and the Arccos Link wearable are permitted under the Rules of Golf (USGA Decision Numbers 2018-0414 and 2020-0305).
