Shot Scope V3 – review
I must admit I had to wait cca. 10 minutes until Shot Scope V3 found my location. From then on, I didn’t have to deal with anything else. Not even with the battery. Even the battery was strong enough for 18 holes. I assume I could play 36 holes with one charge.
Of course, I wondered if it is worth having rangefinders like Bushnell, Nikon, Golf Buddy, etc. At my current level, I think the Shot Scope V3 will be sufficient. Not to mention how comfortable it is to use.
On Friday, I only used the GPS option but next time I will track my performance too. Now I prayed that it will work in this not so known golf course.
Shot Scope – 100 million tracked shots
Recently, Shot Scope has surpassed the landmark figure of 100 million golf shots tracked using its performance tracking golf watches.
David Hunter, CEO of Shot Scope, commented:
“By analyzing the data collected from all 100 million shots, we have been able to identify five key themes and findings that we are confident will help amateur golfers to continue lowering their scores.”
5 key themes & findings
- We should all take more club when approaching the green.
- Lower lofted clubs could be the key to improving up-and-down percentages from around the green.
- Putting practice is key to improving scores, no matter your handicap.
- Bunkers are just as hazardous as they appear.
- Finding the fairway might improve your score, but improving your approach play from the rough could unlock your best scores yet.
Global smartwatch market
We can see an increasing demand for wireless sports and fitness devices is driving the market.
“Currently, the use of smartwatches among cyclers, runners, gym-goers, swimmers, and athletes is increasing rapidly, owing to their wide range of monitoring capabilities. The wireless synchronization of these watches with smartphones enables users to control music, notifications, alarms, auto sleep, and other functions, which drives the growth of the market.”
“The global smartwatch market was valued at shipments volume of 43.87 million in 2018 and it is expected to reach a volume of 108.91 million by 2024, registering a CAGR of 14.5% during the forecast period 2019-2024.”
