The SkyCaddie LINX GT Gametracker Watch, is another exciting new innovation in both the GPS watch category and the game tracking category.
The SkyCaddie LINX GT GameTracker Watch will differentiate SkyGolf from the watch competition, the gametracker competition, and the app competition by combining all three into one harmonious solution bringing the best of all three into one product. This is another example of producing hybrid products from the individual products in SkyGolf’s large but compatible e-golf portfolio developed recently to create more opportunities for golfers to improve and play better while leveraging the latest in technology.
At its core, the LINX GT is a standalone GPS watch that features SkyGolf’s best-in-class TrueGound® Course Maps to provide you with distances you know you can trust. Using the watch, you can view quick distances on your wrist to 35,000 preloaded courses worldwide. Using golf’s only ground-corrected precision course maps, the SkyCaddie LINX GT not only provides critical distances to the front, center and back of the green, it is loaded with advanced features such as IntelliGreen technology and TrueGround™ Target Lists. IntelliGreen technology displays the true shape of the green from your angle of approach and pin targeting allowing you to move the cursor location for precise distance to any location on the green. The SkyGolf TrueGround™ Target List allows you to quickly find precise yardages of up to 40 hazards, bunkers, carries, water, end of fairway and layups per hole. Only SkyGolf walks every course with professional survey-grade equipment to create the most complete and most reliable course maps in the game.
The watch also pairs wirelessly with the SkyCaddie Mobile GPS app to provide expanded views on your phone that work together in perfect harmony. The SkyCaddie Mobile GPS app uses the powerful GPS engine of the watch to stay synchronized on the same course, same hole and precise location. When you need more information or a better view of what’s ahead, the app delivers the entire hole in stunning HD graphics on your smart phone with the accuracy of a SkyCaddie.
The LINX GT is so much more than a GPS watch. It is the first rangefinder that includes a built-in shot tracking system, that when combined with a full set of the SkyGolf SmartTag club tags, allows golfers to track the club, location and distance of each shot. Real-time, wireless synchronization between the LINX GT and SkyCaddie Mobile via Bluetooth® Smart technology provides quick distances on your watch, an expanded view in vivid HD on your smartphone, and the ability to share live rounds with your golf instructor, friends or family via the SkyGolf 360 Cloud.
“The SkyCaddie LINX GT is golf’s first rangefinder and shot tracking watch with a synchronized mobile app, giving you a powerful system to help play your best,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf SVP, International Sales & Marketing. “Now you can know how far you hit each club in your bag and you can rely on golf’s most accurate GPS combined with golf’s most vivid rangefinder GPS app to give you distances and views you can trust.”
With the SkyCaddie LINX GT, each captured shot is sent automatically in real time to the SkyGolf 360 Cloud to eliminate connecting to a computer after the round. From the SkyGolf 360 Cloud, your results are immediately available for sharing with friends, family or your golf professional in real time or any time after the round.
“The SkyGolf 360 Cloud is basically a ShotLink for recreational golfers with its game changing technology that provides unmatched performance analysis while allowing anyone to follow you as you play a round of golf,” added Surman. “It is at the center of all our SkyGolf e-golf products and it allows you to gain insight to help identify your game’s strengths and weaknesses using post-round game analysis tools.”
The LINX GT watch and the SkyCaddie App are perfectly synchronized to keep both on the same course, the same hole and the same location from tee to green. Both will automatically advance around the course as you do with Intelligent Automation. The LINX GT’s powerful GPS engine replaces your smartphone’s location services to provide distances you can trust while conserving your phone’s battery. Smartphone notifications show in-bound calls with caller ID, voicemail notification, text messages and email alerts.
Powered by the LINX GT, use your smart phone with the SkyCaddie Mobile GPS app and have an eagle’s eye view of the entire hole. With a simple TAP on the screen, measure to any point on the hole and get critical information you need to layup in front of, or carry, hazards. Or simply pinch and zoom HoleVue to seamlessly reveal up to 40 geo-referenced targets.
In addition to time and golf, fitness features included in the SkyCaddie LINX GT make this a fully functional multi-sport watch. A multi-sport odometer tracks distance, pace and speed whether you are golfing, walking, running or cycling. Set a fitness goal and the LINX GT will track your number of steps, calories burned and distance walked against your goal.
The SkyCaddie LINX GT is currently available for use with an Apple iOS app with Android options coming soon. The LINX GT watch comes with a bonus SmartTag to try the tracking system. The SkyCaddie LINX GT GameTracker Package comes with the watch plus fourteen SmartTags.
