Arccos-Golf-App-Image-1I recently had a chance to test out the Arccos Golf trackers.  At $379, they’re not inexpensive, and may cost as much or more than a new driver.  So are they worth it, and what can you learn from them? I reviewed the kit over a couple rounds of golf for the Best Buy Plug in blog.

What’s in the box
From the packaging to the unboxing, the Arccos is a nice kit.  The sensors are individually laid out, and there’s one for each club for a total of 14. They’re not numbered, so you just add a sensor to the end of your club by screwing it in to the opening in the end of the grip. From there, you download the companion app for iPhone 4S or above, and you’re off!

The whole Arccos golf kit works seamlessly.  The sensors pair just once with your phone and then transmit data wirelessly. The sensors know when you’re taking a practice swing, and when you’re hitting. You never need to tell them you’re hitting a club, or that you’ve switched holes, they just know. That was impressive.
Also good to know is that all the sensors stayed put during the constant in and out of the golf bag during my tests.

What You Can Learn
Arccos Golf tracks a wide variety of stats, and can give you a lot of information about your game.  You can use your fingertips on the satellite maps of each hole to determine distance to the pin, to to an obstacle, or to a midway point on the fairway.

The full review was written for the Best Buy Plug In blog.  Read it here.

As an aside, if you’re looking for an inexpensive, or, ok, FREE way to get GPS and scoring, check out the free Offcourse Golf app. It’s what I use when I’m not testing other cool gadgets.
