Shot Scope’s pioneering, innovative distance measuring device combines advanced GPS technology with its popular automatic performance tracking.

Shot Scope V2 builds upon the success of the company’s trademark automatic club recognition technology and detailed performance statistics by also providing accurate front/middle/back GPS yardages.

Performance statistics of the quality offered by the V2 have previously only been available to Tour players but V2 uses Shot Scope’s proprietary course mapping data to bring the same level of detail to the everyday golfer.

Shot Scope’s engineers developed the V2 with three modes to meet different golfing requirements; GPS, PRO and GPS+TRACK.

In both GPS and GPS+TRACK modes, the LCD screen displays distances to the front, middle and back of the green from the golfer’s real-time position, using Smart GPS.

Performance tracking is activated in both PRO and GPS+TRACK modes. The device works in the background to collect over 100 Tour-level statistics, broken down into five areas: clubs, tee shots, approaches, short game and putting.

The latest version provides front, middle and back yardages, as well as distances to hazards and bunkers. Users can also flag penalty shots during a round to reduce the time spent editing scores post-round, and the user experience of the Performance Dashboard has been improved with more in-depth statistics available.

With an RRP of £225, the V2 offers excellent value given the level of performance and functionality the device delivers. We found the V2 watch to be comfortable to wear and felt that the level of on-course information provided is excellent. But where this device truly comes into its own is after the round when you can analyse your data on a connected device. There’s so much to consider, from detailed distance stats to information on your accuracy, scrambling, even putting. Used correctly, this information can help you target the areas of your game that need work and help you improve.
