A virtual golf instruction awaits with the SwingSmart Golf Analyzer
Written by Umberto Bernardini. Over the past 2 years we have witnessed the arrival of many high-tech gadgets to help the common golfer with his/hers golf swing, that same common golfer who doesn’t have an easy access to a PGA Professional or an expensive launch monitor. The SwingSmart golf analyzer is a non-invasive hi-tech solution to help you identify your swing flaws and correct them. This tiny and lightweight sensor just won the International Network of Golf Product Ingenuity Award.
The SwingSmart golf analyzer has one of the best devices we have ever tested for tracking tempo, path and clubhead speed. Seeing your swing in 3D and making the necessary adjustments has never been so easy…
In a nutshell, the SwingSmart Golf Analyzer is a tiny Bluetooth-enabled sensor module that is placed on the shaft of your club (attaching directly below the grip), programmed to track multiple motion components of your golf swing. That data is sent to SwingSmart Duo, the mobile software on your smartphone, in real time. Users can evaluate various actions of their swing and adjust to improve their golf swing.
There are a couple of key things I always look forward when I perform a review on a device, in this case the SwingSmart golf analyzer; product presentation and ease of use. Nothing is as frustrating as trying to use a device when you have to read a 30-page long user’s manual. The SwingSmart Golf Analyzer is clean and simple on the outside and the user’s manual is simple and straight forward. From the time I started downloading the app to my iPhone, clipping the unit to an old 7-iron to my first recorded swing it took me about 6 minutes!
I must point out that you have to charge the tiny unit for 2 hours prior to your first analysis. The device is unobtrusive to most players and the weight added is virtually undetected. The SwingSmart Golf Analyzer it’s simple to use and its intuitive functionality makes it easy for the casual golfer to appreciate knowledge generally saved for the instructor.
In addition to the SwingSmart Golf Analyzer unit the box comes with a nice carrying case, USB port wires and a large “green triangle” which is very useful to set on a putting green and it adds and extra help while practicing your putts.
The guys at New Spin Golf, LLC owners of the SwingSmart Golf Analyzer have hit the nail on the heat with this great device! It is a very effective device, compact in size and one of its key elements is its portability (small enough to fit in your pocket, take on vacations)
The device is also very accurate (as compared to other more expensive units) and that speaks volumes of its quality. My sincere congratulations to SwingSmart on an ingenious little device. MSRP for the SwingTIP is $249.99 and can be purchased at www.swingsmart.com
