If you spend any time watching golf on television, than you’ve probably seen commercials for the golf stat tracking system, Arccos.
There are a couple game improvement systems on the market nowadays, but Arccos has set itself apart from the competition thanks to its ease of use, convenience, superbly simply user interface and accurate statistics.
With all that I’ve heard about Arccos, I was really excited to have the opportunity to try Arccos and see what it was all about. Here’s what I saw:
My first reaction to the system was shock — I was honestly shocked by how easy the technology was to use.
As a die-hard golf addict, I’ve tried other golf statistic tracking systems and haven’t found one that’s easier to use than Arccos. It’s almost as easy as “set it and forget it,” which isn’t the case with some other statistic tracking systems. As long as you putt everything out, there’s no reason to even look at the app unless you’re using the bad-ass GPS feature — which I’ll get to in a minute.
The system is a breeze to set up. Simply screw a light-weight sensor into the top of each of your clubs and bring up the pairing screen on the Arccos app. Once you’re there, select the club you want to pair and hold down the button on top of the sensor on the corresponding club. After you do this, you’re done.
That’s it. No more pairing, no more tapping, no more pressing buttons on your clubs — Arccos is done setting up and you’re ready to go.
I was also impressed with how easy it was to use the app. With just a swipe or tap, you can get everything you want. Forget to enter a gimmie putt? Just tap and add it.
Not only does Arccos track your stats, it’s also an absurdly useful GPS system.
With the touch and drag of your finger, you can see yardages to any hazard and get lay up distances to any point on the course. While laser range finders and GPS watches are pretty accurate, the Arccos system actually allows you to see the hole you’re playing and the hazards you’re trying to avoid.
If you’re serious about your game, then you absolutely need Arccos.
Overall, I give it a 4.5 — the only reason it’s not a 5.0 is because there’s not currently an Android version of it. Unfair, maybe — but in a day and age where 78% of all market users are Android customers, that’s tough to let slide.
Then again, maybe it’s just because I’m an Android customer and can’t use the app without the help of a friends iPhone.
Fret not, Android users — the company is in the process of developing an version that is compatible with operating system, it’s just a bit slow-going. Some day, this rating will be a 5.0, but not until every golfer — iPhone or Droid user — can accurately track their stats and improve their games.
Otherwise, Arccos is a must — and at $299.99, it’s more affordable than some other options on the market.
