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?

Member golfinfl – Cameron Circle T 009

The “M” in 009 M is for masterful and this putter is a prime example of a masterfully made Scotty Cameron… these are also not inexpensive putters so the “M” could also mean $$money$$.

Member cooneyj1818 – Jordan Vs  

These Jordan’s ooze style and they can now be yours for a really nice deal. Lightly worn and well taken care of, they are almost new but without the “new” price.
