Voice Caddie has announced the release of the Swing Caddie SC200, a portable Doppler Radar-based launch monitor that will cost less than a driver.

Providing instant feedback via its LCD display and voice output, the hand-held, Swing Caddie SC200 measures ball and club data in the form of carry distance, swing speed, ball speed and smash factor.

Following on from the success of Voice Caddie’s original line of voice guided GPS devices, the Swing Caddie SC200 also features voice output functionality that tells you how far the ball has carried after every shot.

The Swing Caddie SC200 can be used in one of three different modes: Practice, Target or Random Mode. Each of the three modes should help ensure your time spent on the range is both varied and efficient, with a unique scoring system used to monitor carry distance accuracy and consistency.

The ability to track daily and overall statistics for each club can also help you fine tune your distance control, while distance adjusted measurements are provided based on the barometric pressure of the practice environment.

With the option to input your clubs' exact loft angles, the Swing Caddie SC200 can be fine tuned to match your bag setup, providing accurate data for any shot type. The included wireless control unit enables all settings, including club selection, to be controlled remotely, while a shot count and time display feature allows practice session length and intensity to be monitored.

Weighing a little over 200g and measuring just 15cm x 7.5cm x 2.5cm, the Swing Caddie SC200 is not just great for golfers who love to practice.

It's compact size and affordability also make it great for coaches who want to maximise the effectiveness of their lessons and club fittings.

The Swing Caddie SC200 will be available from mid-May and will retail at £249.
