NewSpin Golf to Launch Enhanced SwingSmart Golf Swing Analyzer
at 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, Booth 1159
(NORTH BARRINGTON, IL) – NewSpin Golf will launch an enhanced version of its award-winning SwingSmart golf swing analyzer, featuring a completely redesigned app with multiple new functions at booth 1159 during the PGA Merchandise Show, January 22-24 in Orlando, FL.
A first-of-its-kind solution that provides instant and accurate feedback on critical elements of a golfer’s swing, the Bluetooth-enabled SwingSmart sensor module quickly and easily clips to a golf club shaft. Weighing less than 1 oz., the device wirelessly communicates with the free app for iOS and Android devices.
The completely updated app debuting at the show will include:
New Interface – Fresh environment ensures easy-to-use interaction that allows users to access all swing data, including 3-D Swing View, without navigating between multiple screens
Dual 3D Swing-View – When using the company’s famed 3-D Swing-View, users can now access multiple angles at one time for comparison and analysis
Peter Kostis Signature Drills – Beneficial and fun in-app mini-games co-developed by renowned instructor Peter Kostis; these now include the “Peter Kostis’ Putting Challenge” which will premiere in Orlando
“During my career as an instructor and commentator, I’ve studied thousands of swings and the accuracy of the data that SwingSmart captures makes it far and away the best product of its kind,” says Kostis. “It is well known people learn faster and practice more when they’re having fun. The new in-app games allow players to hone their swings while having a great time, creating the perfect complement to the system’s other award-winning features.”
Available for free download on the Google Play and iTunes stores, the SwingSmart app allows information to be viewed immediately, shared with an instructor, or saved for future reference. A defining feature of the system is the in-app instructional videos through which Peter Kostis provides a variety of swing tips to help players optimize performance.
“Our continued commitment to ensuring that SwingSmart is accurate, helpful and fun-to-use has positioned us as the clear leader in digital swing analysis,” says Angelo Papadourakis, CEO of NewSpin Golf. “Everyone from PGA professionals, retailers, journalists and consumers has recognized that SwingSmart is an invaluable learning device that provides the feedback necessary for golfers to improve.”
With each swing, the SwingSmart system ($249.99) immediately delivers:
Key Stats – Instant, accurate, easy-to-interpret information on tempo, swing speed, face angle and shaft lean
Path and Plane – 3D Swing View shows 360-degrees of a player’s swing motion, highlighting the exact route of the club head from any angle
Putting Results – More than just a full-swing tool, the system also provides info on the putting stroke to help players lower the number of putts taken per round
Personal Best – Data from a golfer’s best swings can be saved and used as points of reference
Developed by a team of expert technologists, SwingSmart provides a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact. This allows players to adjust and learn what is successful for their individual games. A great, year-round practice tool, SwingSmart features a special Training mode that provides the key data necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.
Earlier this year, the company launched the SwingSmart Duo, which incorporates HiQ Technology. Requiring zero user set-up, adjustment or calibration, HiQ is built using a proprietary pattern recognition process not found anywhere else in the industry, which increases the accuracy of captured swing data, including the renowned SwingSmart 3D Swing View™. It utilizes an algorithm that adapts to each user’s swing to faithfully measure their drives, chips and putts.
Recently honored as a recipient of GOLF Magazine’s “Techy Award” in the Training Aid category, SwingSmart has received high praise from a variety of sources since its debut. These include being named the “Overall Winner” in the swing training category by MyGolfSpy.com and receiving a “Product Ingenuity” award from the International Network of Golf.
