Looks like Game Golf is updating their product to be similar to Arccos.  No more manual tagging your swings.  Release looks to be in September for $299.

It was originally announced back in the winter.

Then it was put off until "summer".

Now they've just put it off again under "September".

Still not available for pre-order, just announced as coming soon. I would not hold my breath waiting on GG Pro.

I have the original GameGolf, and to me their website is still greatly lacking, no matter how they capture the data.

They sorely need a "trend" type report where I can see my trend of, say, averaging driving distance by month/year.   Either that or raw data export so I can run my own analytics.

Also, their strokes gained is terrible because it compares you to other players that use the unit.  I know a couple of other guys who have it, and they don't take the time to position the pin and their putts,so the SG putts is WAYYY off.  For example, if you had a 30 footer and forgot to tag the tap in, and you just add a shot, it automatically makes two putts of 15'.

I have the original Game Golf and enjoy it, but wearing a unit and tapping does get old after a while.  I think I have 100+ rounds in the system since 2015.

Been looking at Arccos, but would prefer to stick with Game Golf because I have so much data uploaded.

I've been using the original GG for 3 years now. The raw data is very helpful to me, and I really don't get too caught up with their strokes gained or other matrixes. It tells me how far I hit each club and where my misses are. Tagging is such a part of my PSR that when I forget to charge the unit or don't take it I find myself tagging my belt anyways.

I too am waiting for the Pro version since I don't want to lose all the games/data I have. The Live version did not appeal to me but the Pro does.

I've always said that the GG and now Arccos units are just about ideal for finding out where your misses fall and how far you hit each club in the bag. And that's all they are ideal for.

As a serious golf-analytics tool for teasing apart the elements of your game and tracking trends or evaluating changes in your swing/stroke they are just too limited. Between not knowing where the hole is on the green, to having only a terribly crude idea of your situation (can't take trees into account? then no analysis possible on 90% of the courses in the world) to not being able to codify your intentions for other than stock full shots there are just too many holes in the data.

Ball started here. Ball ended up there. Here's how many yards between here and there. Later, rinse, repeat. The rest is at best just window dressing and at worst completely misleading.
