The Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors are in their 3rd-Generation, the kit comes with 14 individual sensors, one for every club in your bag which connect to the Arccos Caddie app to provide a wide range of information whilst out on the green.
The sensors themselves are made from high quality materials, they attach to the club simply by screwing into the top of the clubs grip where they will then remain securely, then it’s just a matter of connecting them to the app, once connected they will not need to be reconnected with each new game.
Once in place the app will receive real time automatic shot tracking, the Smart Distance Club Averages and will assist in selecting the right club by distance for every shot. The new A.I. Powered GPS Rangefinder, is the first-ever rangefinder that adjusts in real-time for wind (including gusts), slope, temperature, humidity and altitude giving you the Arccos Caddie Number, the most precise yardage in the game.
The personalised Caddie Advice uses the A.I. to help with the optimal strategy and the advanced analytics are powered by strokes gained providing personalised performance breakdowns to guide practice and equipment choices. All this information can be reviewed on the app whilst you play or read back once you have finished the game, the phone will need to be close to the club to receive the data which may be a downside for some, as this means keeping it in your pocket rather than leaving the phone in a bag.
The Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors have won four-straight Golf Digest Editor’s Choice Awards for “Best Game Analyzer,” and users have said they have experienced an average handicap improvement of 4.2 strokes during the first year, some in as few as 5 rounds. The Smart Sensors purchases comes with a free 1-year subscription valued at starting from the date the sensors are activated, after the 1-year you will be auto-billed $99.99 per year to have full access to all the benefits, this might sound a lot but at just shy of $2 a week it seems reasonable for all the data provided and who knows after a year you may be good enough to not require it.
The Smart Sensors are permitted under the Rules of Golf (Decision Number 2017-0754), the slight increase on the length of the club may take a little getting used to but the low profile means they should affect normal game place. The batteries have been designed to last up to 5 years with 2 years being fully guaranteed, unfortunately you cannot replace the batteries yourself which means when they run out you will need to replace the sensors.
The Arccos Caddie Smart Sensors are great little golf buddies, encouraging you to improve your game and giving you a deeper insight into your performance, like many golf accessories they come at a cost but we believe you get value for money with this set up. RRP £169.99
