Shot Scope V2, on 27 September 2017 - 08:31 AM, said:
I was hoping I may be able to help answer a few questions that have been posted in this thread and also clear up the delay situation.
I know Muddler asked if we will continue to sell the V1, and the answer is no. The Rules of Golf changed recently and the governing bodies will give different modes a different conformance rating. Therefore, in PRO mode V2 acts the same as V1 and will be eligible for all tournaments.
On the delay, I cannot apologize enough, this is something we were keen to avoid. We haven't quite been able to scale our manufacturing to cover the fantastic number of pre-orders, and we are therefore running a couple of weeks behind. We have had a few responses questioning why we didn't release this information earlier and the simple reason is that we needed to make sure we gave the correct updated shipping date. If we can bring forward the time-lines then we will. All customers should now have been emailed and given an updated shipping date which was dependent on their original shipping date. I know that this forum is very international and we have added that every pre-order will be shipped for free.
We really appreciate all the discussions about Shot Scope and the V2 golf watch on GolfWRX, a number of our team check the forums to see what users/GolfWRXers are saying about the company and product and also noting questions and suggestions they may have. If you have further questions either ask me to answer on here, or contact our support team and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Can you address this info and tell us why this can't be integrated? Shot scope already remembers where you last hit, and it has a GPS rangefinder so why can't it take the distance between where you last hit and add the distance to where you are standing? Just bundle the feature into one of the non tournament legal modes, it's a killer feature that NOBODY else is offering in golf stat trackers. You would literally corner the market and be the industry standard. Please consider it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is some more info:
Note that V2 does NOT give your distance of the last shot. Per an email from their support:
"Unfortunately we can't show a 'live' distance that your shot went, we spoke to the governing bodies about this and they had issues with the system being conforming if we did it.
"The issue is because our system carries much higher performance data capability, so the governing bodies don't want us to show shot distance during the round. We could show which club
and that shot distance, whereas every GPS system will just show a shot distance, this is also based on how far you have walked and I would imagine requires manual input."
Also note that V2 does NOT come preloaded with all of the courses in the world (or any courses, for that matter). Here is the answer from support:
"V2 does not come pre-loaded with courses and courses must be added prior to you playing the course. This is due to the quality of mapping data provided by Shot Scope, courses are regularly updated and therefore the download requirement ensures that you always have the most up to date information."
Their website says that that V2 has three different modes, but it doesn't give any details. Here is another excerpt from a support email:
"The three modes are for different playing conditions. GPS + Track gives you all of your distances to the front, middle and back of the green as well as tracking your performance. This makes this mode perfect for when you are playing stroke play. GPS mode gives you your distances but does not track your performance. This mode suits playing in match play or stableford events when you are potentially not completing every hole in the round. Pro mode tracks your performance but doesn't give any live distances. This is for top amateur and pro events when live distances are illegal."
I think that the lack of pre-loaded courses plus the lack of a shot distance feature makes this a lot less interesting for me. Otherwise, it still looks like a vast improvement over GameGolf---albeit at a higher price.
