AmateurGolf.com "regulars" are familiar
with the game-tracking capability of Arccos.
The company has sold their full set product,
which tracks every shot in your round seemlessly, to
tens of thousands of golfers since launching several
years ago. The amount and quality of data their
users get (including me) quickly pays for the sub-
$300 full set product.
For 2016, Arccos has added a new product to the
mix, Arccos Driver. It is the game’s first
driver-only performance tracker, and our early tests
show that it's a fun and easy way to get started with
the Arccos Golf Platform. At just $79 (pre-order here) Arccos Driver
might be the best investment you can make in your
game in 2016.

starting with distance and fairways hit categories,
and adding in competition with your friends to make

Until you've tried Arccos, you have no idea how
cool it is to see exactly where each shot went during
the round, and to click a single button to view all
your rounds for that round, and compare them
against your trends. Getting a handicap for each part
of your game provides pinpoint precision to your
practice and learning regimen. Driving is one of the
most fun areas, because let's face it, we all want to
know how far we really hit it, (Arccos
knows) and how many fairways we hit (Arccos
knows that too).
Pairing it up and getting started is a snap -- the
sensor simply pairs to the phone and you're off to
the races. Downloading courses can be done in
advance, or on the tee. It takes about 30 seconds
with any kind of internet connection.
Arccos Driver will be available at Apple Stores,
Dick’s Sporting Goods and golf retailers
nationwide starting in April and is also available for
pre-order at www.ArccosDriver.com.
