Golf's First System Combining GPS, Live Stat Tracking and Tour Analytics
Now Offered In-Store, Online

 

 

 

 

(STAMFORD, CT) – Arccos Golf, LLC – maker of the first club-to-cloud™ system offering GPS, live stat tracking and Tour analytics – announces ARCCOS™ is available today at all Apple Stores nationwide and online at www.apple.com.


Featuring a set of 14 virtually weightless sensors, ARCCOS ($399) joins a small and exclusive group of sports tech products Apple has selected to showcase in its nearly 260 locations. Each sensor easily attaches to the end of a club grip. Once paired via Bluetooth to the ARCCOS iPhone app, the system seamlessly integrates with a golfer's game, allowing them to view stats in real time as they play. It requires no alterations to pre-shot routines, additional devices, tapping or other hindrances to enjoyment and improvement.


“Our core consumers are very tech-forward, savvy individuals whose purchasing habits closely align with the large and knowledgeable customer base Apple has established,” said Sal Syed, CEO and Co-Founder of Arccos Golf. “The leading-edge technology found in ARCCOS is unlike anything in golf and we're very excited for players to experience it for the first time.”


Beginning in November, ARCCOS will be available at select golf retailers nationwide and online at Amazon.com. Along with GPS for more than 16,000 courses in North America, the system captures critical data for your game, providing players with instant access to information on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. This helps golfers identify patterns and refine tactics before, during and after each round.


Further bolstering the system is the proprietary ARCCOS Tour Analytics platform developed in conjunction with golf's most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders. Drawing from Sanders' work with PGA Tour star Zach Johnson and many others, it automatically breaks down a players' handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting. This allows players to:


  • Gain insight into what every shot means


  • Understand exactly how each part of their game contributes to scoring


  • Explore comparative data in each of the five components from golfers with the same handicap


  • Evaluate patterns across their entire golf history, supporting refinement of on-course tactics


More than just a great tool for the individual users, ARCCOS is utilized by top instructors. It helps their students recognize and correct faults, such as club distance gaps, noticeable shot dispersion patterns and other problem areas.


Led by a team of Ivy League engineers, rocket scientists, PhD's and designers, Arccos Golf is named after a function of advanced mathematics. The ARCCOS system is a Callaway Open Innovation Partner.

I am not, no.  I can see if we can get one for the site, but I was just posting the details for the readers.

 

Wondering how it would compare to the Game Golf system.

Based on what you guys know about Game Golf, and this device, what are the major [stated] advantages of this one?

Arccos doesn't require you to identify the club for each shot. It does it automatically. 

 

The sensor weighs 12 grams. Isn't that 3 SW points (not my specialty)?

 

It's not allowed during tournaments and handicap rounds, just practice and social rounds. But that's not a problem for me. I consider it a practice device.

Big plus would be not having to tap before each shot.

 

The negative for me is that since it's Bluetooth to your phone I'm assuming you need to be within 30' or so during each shot. That could be an issue on teebox's and around greens. I don't want to grab my phone and take it with every time I hit a shot.

I've read that you ideally should have the phone in your pocket. But 1m (3-4 feet?) should be fine. 

 

All these new gadgets do everything the MOTOACTV did a long time ago :)

Annnnd it's for apple products, as usual. When are these companies going to realise that the Android platform outsells the apple one and release it there first?

No, 12 grams on the club head would affect the swing weight. How much depends on the length of the club. 12 grams on the butt would lighten the swing weight a bit. But even though a scale would say that, you would probably never actually feel it in a swing.

THIS is something I would be interested in. I like the idea of not needing to tap anything to tell it what club you're swinging. I'm curious how it comes up with a standard deviation value. How does it know where you're aiming to determine how many yards offline? If it assumes center of fairway or green, that's obviously not always your target.

When it comes to Android vs iOS it's been clear for a long time that companies prefer iOS. Sales is just one factor. How people use it is more important. iOS may have just 15-18% of the market here, but more than 50% use iOS to read our website. iOS owners seem to use their phone and tablet more actively than others.

My impression is that all of these systems - CaddieOn, Game Golf, Arccos - require a lot of manual work. You have to correct things either on the course or after. The GPS isn't 100% accurate, shots that are actually in the fairway can be marked as rough. How do they know how long your final putt was?

 

I want to like them. Great concepts. But if you own a laser or gps watch/hand unit you'll be better of with a pen and even just the Golfshot app.

That's true, but alot of that is due to the fact that $1 apps are mostly free on android, and $2 apps are free or $1 on android.

Number 1 reason (out of many reasons) why I'll never buy apple.  Each to their own, but I'm surprised they'd release this only on one platform.  Would be interesting to see how many sales they lost to game golf due to this reason.

Willing to wait, as game golf really doesn't intrest me.

I was an early adopter of Game golf. At the time I thought it would be great for defining my distances in an easy way. I didn't give a hoot about the social aspects of the device. But as with early adopting comes all the new product bugs. Anyway... I ditched GG. Primarily because it was distracting to remember to always Tap. Secondly, there was too much editing that needed to be done post round. Perhaps the editing hassle has been fixed or refined. The Accros* device seems like it would be much better. ie... no tapping. Unfortuantely for me anyway; the Accros is not available for Android or I'd consider trying it.
