Tech Talk

Shot Scope V2’s cutting edge distance-measuring device combines advanced GPS technology with its seamless automatic performance tracking. The watch itself displays distances to the front, middle and back of greens and has three modes to meet different requirements depending on how you want to use it.

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 also displays distances to hazards and bunkers. Users can now 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.

Users of the Shot Scope V2 can collect ‘Medals’ for achieving certain goals, while the ‘Leaderboards’ feature lets you compare yourself against the rest of the database in different categories and filter by location, age and handicap for more relevant stats.

A new Courses Hub allow golfers who are going to play at a course for the first time to view how other users have played it and pick up useful course management tips. They can also see gross and net course records, longest drives, hole-by-hole stats and more.

Game Booster

With the price repositioned at £169, the Shot Scope V2 offers excellent value given the level of performance and functionality provided. The V2 watch is comfortable to wear and the amount of on-course information that it provides 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. Used correctly, this information can help you target the areas of your game that need work and make you a better golfer.

The new Courses Hub is a social community that can bring golfers together and help you master new courses.
