Shot Scope V2 Golf Watch Offers GPS Distances and Stats

Published

on

With today’s golfers having access to a plethora of different distance-measuring devices coming in all shapes and sizes, it’s difficult for a product to separate itself from the pack. Despite the success of big-name companies like Bushnell and Garmin, a Scottish company called Shot Scope has been producing quality products and quietly making a name for itself in the golf world.

Its new V2 Watch is unique in a number of ways. Most notably, the watch has three different modes that are tailored to the needs of different golfers: GPS, PRO, and GPS+TRACK. The watch uses the company’s SMART GPS technology to give yardages to the front, middle, and back of the green while accurately recognizing the golfer’s position on more than 40,000 courses. A software update that will be available later in the year will provide distances to hazards.

As essential as they are, many golfers want more information than simple yardages. Shot Scope understands this, offering tour-level performance tracking in both the PRO and the GPS+TRACK modes. Over 100 tour-caliber statistics are collected and analyzed by the watch. The stats are divided to fit into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game, and putting. The data collection happens seamlessly through the company’s ClubSense technology, which allows the wristband to “sense” the small plastic sensors (provided with purchase) that golfers screw into the butt end of their grips.

The V2 Watch is currently available for preorder for $210 and comes with 20 club sensors. It will be available at retail October 1 for $250.

    Haven’t seen a shot scope get this much attention since November of ’63 when Lee Harvey put a couple 6.5 MMs in JFK’s forehead.

      No, it was from behind according to the Warren commission. How does that square up?

SPOTTED: New Callaway Forged irons… Apex or Legacy?

Published

on

Photos of a new Callaway Forged iron popped up in our GolfWRX Forums, and our members are trying to figure out whether they’re going to be replacements for Apex Pro irons, or whether they’re an update on the Legacy series. They could also be X-Forged irons, but since Callaway recently came out with new X-Forged irons, that would be unlikely.

Here’s what GolfWRX Members are saying:

  • elwhippy: A new Legacy iron? Looks a bit Japanese shaped. 
  • mattTHEkatt: Like an X-Forged/Legacy Black mashup. They look powerful. 
  • DTown3011: …gotta be the next Apex!
  • J13: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • mgholda: Pics look like a newer legacy black.
  • TheMoneyShot: I thought Cally was going to phase out the Apex name after they released the MBs?
  • john443: A larger cavity in these then the X- Forged… competitor to the 750 and AP3 maybe? …or Legacy Black finally brought to retail…hallelujah. CF16 replacement???!
  • Equipto: These look very sharp, and like thumpers. I don’t care if they are a Legacy Black or Apex replacement, call them whatever… i’ll try them 
  • mrmikeac: Next gen Callaway Apex Legacy? Hmmmm…..
  • Brizam: The Legacy Black might be the best players cavity back ever made.  If they were to become available they’d move straight to the top of the list of clubs to buy for me. 
  • Jourdan M: This is the Apex Pro 

Here are photos of the new Callaway irons we spotted

Which one do you think the new iron looks like?
