RIDGELAND, Miss., November 10, 2015… SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie® the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, has introduced the SkyCaddie LinxVue™ multi-sport watch which wirelessly pairs with the SkyCaddie Mobile GPS app to deliver the convenience of a GPS watch, the vivid landscapes of the GPS app, and the accuracy of a SkyCaddie.
The SkyCaddie LinxVue watch gives quick distances on your wrist to 35,000 preloaded courses worldwide and 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 SkyCaddie LinxVue is a watch-app hybrid that combines the best of both worlds,” said Richard Edmonson, CEO, SkyGolf. “We’ve linked golf’s most accurate GPS with golf’s most vivid rangefinder GPS app to give you distances and views you can trust to play your best with golf’s most reliable course library.”
The watch and the 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 powerful GPS engine in the watch replaces your smartphone’s location services to provide distances you can trust… and conserves battery, too.
Using golf’s only ground-corrected precision course maps, the SkyCaddie LinxVue provides dynamic distances to the front, center and back of the green. SkyCaddie LinxVue is preloaded with IntelliGreen technology which provides the actual green shape that rotates from your angle of approach and pin targeting allowing you to move the cursor location for precise distance to the 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 SkyGolf TrueGround™ Target List is preloaded to quickly find precise yardages of up to 40 hazards, bunkers, carries, water, end of fairway and layups per hole. Powered by the LinxVue, 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.
The watch is Bluetooth-enabled and when paired with the free SkyGolf 360™ Mobile App, golfers can upload scores and stats to SkyGolf’s online community for fast and easy review of their rounds without a cable. The Bluetooth connectivity also makes it easy to keep the LinxVue up-to-date with the latest error-corrected course updates onDemand to avoid the obsolescence of preloads.
Designed to be fun and flexible, SkyGolf 360™ lets you track as many or as few stats as you want. All of your scorecard data on LinxVue is wirelessly uploaded to your My 360 personal performance locker within the SkyGolf 360™ Cloud. Once uploaded, you can review your performance from any mobile or desktop device without the need for a cable. Share scores, stats and chat with friends on the news feed. Gain insight with advanced scoring and stats with simple, easy-to-understand charts and graphs to help identify your game’s strengths and weaknesses using post-round game analysis tools.
In addition to time and golf, fitness features included in the SkyCaddie LinxVue make this not only an every-day watch but also 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. All data can be uploaded and viewed using 3rd party apps. LinxVue also has a round timer to keep track of how long it takes you to play 18 holes.
The SkyCaddie LinxVue has a price of $249.95 and is currently available for use with an Apple iOS app. For more information, visit skygolf.com.
