The new SkyCaddie SW2 Watch is lighter and slimmer than its predecessor and boasts a host of features to gain accurate distances at a glance
SkyCaddie has unveiled the SkyCaddie SW2 Watch, a model that is slimmer and lighter than its predecessor with improved battery life and no annual fees.
The SW2 Watch is pre-loaded and ready-to-play with golf’s only ground-corrected precision course maps exclusive to SkyCaddie users, covering approximately 35,000 golf courses around the world, including 99 per cent of courses in Great Britain and Ireland. SkyCaddie maps are both originated and regularly updated on foot by trained mappers using professional surveying equipment.
The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch provides at-a-glance distances to the Front, Centre and Back of every green, displaying convenient wrist-mounted information on its bright, easy-to-read display.
And as you play your way around the golf course your SW2 Watch automatically advances with you using Intelligent Automation. SW2 also features Auto-Course Recognition – so it knows where you are when you approach the first tee. It also has a Shot Distance function, enabling you to mark and measure how far you have hit the ball.
“The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch offers ready-to-play simplicity, yet it is also one of golf’s most powerful GPS watches available today,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyCaddie Senior Vice-President, International Sales & Marketing.
“With a slim, lightweight profile, improved functionality and extended battery life, this watch is ideal if you’re looking for quick, accurate distances to the Front, Centre and Back of the green. Plus, the addition of Bluetooth® Smart technology enables you to sync your scores and track your progress over time to see where your game is improving – and to see which areas need some work!”
During your round of golf you can opt to store personal scorecard data on your SkyCaddie. For a nominal £14.95 annual membership fee, you can upload this data to the SkyGolf 360 Cloud by pairing your SW2 Watch via Bluetooth with the complimentary SkyGolf 360 Mobile App to track your scores and identify strengths and weaknesses in your game.
The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch also includes a host of fitness features, making it a fully-functional, multi-sport watch. A built-in odometer tracks location, distance, time, laps, speed, pace and calories burned during walks, runs or bike rides, and you can also time your rounds of golf with a pace-of-play timer.
The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with an extended battery life, giving you up to 14 hours of continuous GPS use on the golf course between charges.
The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch has an RRP of £129.95. For more, visit www.skycaddie.co.uk.
