The fact they haven't created a standalone watch or hand held gps with belt clip is really mind boggling 

The link sounds okay, but you'll still need to take your phone out to check yardages and delete duplicate shots

Again, another area where they could take more market share. There are many people that do not want to carry their phone for the entire round and would be willing to buy a device along with the sensors to allow that to happen.

I think the Link will open up Arccos to a new set of customers, and I am looking forward to using it when it is released. It will be interesting to see how successful it is at picking up shots compared to a phone.

Developing for Android is infinitely more complex than developing for iOS thanks to the numerous Android OS versions and OEM UI's overlaid on top. They could certainly cater to some portion of the Android marketplace, but it's not likely better Android support will provide improvements to all users. I'm not saying I agree with it, but I do get it.

When they do eventually release Arccos Link, it should (hopefully) provide a better experience to Android users who utilize the new device. If it works anything at all like GG's previous devices, it should be usable as a standalone unit without ever even having to run the Arccos app on your phone. It won't be an ideal solution, but at least it will be something. I know I'm certainly willing to give Arccos a second try once Link is finally available for purchase.

I have heard from some people in the industry that they are going to be releasing their next generation sensor early next year too.

Another nice thing about the Link is the size.  My Android phone from last year wasn't too bad in the pocket, but my new Moto G7 is like carrying a freight pallet in your left front pocket.  The iPhone 5s is a nice size for the pocket, but at some point it's going to be too old for Arccos to support.  As phones are trending bigger, carrying them in your front pocket is less and less realistic.

Personally I think it the variations in Audio performance across Android is the issue rather than the variations on OS. With Apple the mic input through the Codec is pretty much the same since the iPhone 6. You tune the App for one iPhone you have it for the full range. For Android even across the same vendor the Audio paths can be significantly different. Samsung A series and J series use a lower cost Codec compared with flagship Galaxy S and Note you match this with the mic then the permutations to tune soon get into 10s just for Samsung.

An experience update.

 

Don't wear tight jeans when using Arccos. Played 18 yesterday and was 3 over at the turn (39), took phone out my front pocket and it had me 15 under.  I think combination of thick material and it being snug in my pocket meant it missed most of my shots.

One other thought Samsung even on their flagship phones (i.e. Galaxy S and Note) use two different Codec vendors. They split production across using the Qualcomm Snapdragon Application Processor which binds them to using Qualcomm's Codec and their own Exynos Apps Processor which they partner with a 3rd party Codec. I can't remember which is which in terms of country markets but one platform is sold in the US the other in Europe. This means you may not get the same audio performance with a Galaxy S10 in Europe as you do in the US. 

Just for info. The Codec is the 1st chip the mic connects to in the audio chain it converts the audio signal into a digital signal that the application processor on your phone can understand. As the name infers the application processor is the chip that runs most of the software including the Arccos app. In the other direction it takes the digital output from the apps processor and changes it into audio to drive the speaker, ear piece or headphone jack.

I have the arccos 2.0.  I took it out of my clubs because I hate to have my phone in my front pocket.  I have been waiting for the link to come out so I could go back to using it.  I was told recently that it works with apple watches.  I just don't like to wear a watch while I play either.  I could put the watch on my belt but I don't have an I phone.  Does anyone know if it works with any other type of smart watches?

I've never owned a pair of jeans in my adult life.

Some guys do look good in them.

I looked like a character from Hee Haw.

Just not the right persona for jeans or denim of any kind.

 

One other thing though..a respected veteran linkster like Foz shouldn't say "golfing."

It's not the same as 'bowling."  It's more like "tennising."

We call it "playing golf,"  Foz.

I'm not afraid to kid you about it because you're too cool a guy to tell me to go bleep myself!

Did you know that Rot Clark sang at Mickey Mantle’s funeral, Nifty?

I’m struggling with you and Hee Haw. :)

Really!!

After you see some of the trousers John Daly wears I would say jeans are a significant improvement.

As far as I know, Apple Watch is the only smart watch that works with Arccos.

Is there any reason why my end of round stats aren’t showing? All of my shots have been tracked and it looks like the round is complete in the app but when I go to the desktop dashboard it says the round is excluded.  The app doesn’t say that however.

 

does anyone know why this might happen?

There's an option within arccos to exclude the round from your stats, maybe that's it?

When you end the round in the app, there are two options for your stats. "Make Private" or "Publish and Continue."

"Make Private" excludes them from your stats till you change it up on the desktop. "Publish and Continue" usually includes the stats per usual.

I always have to tweak things on the desktop after the round, so I keep things Private till I have a chance to add shots, move pin locations, etc.

On the desktop, when you're looking at all the rounds, there is an Edit Rounds button. If you click that, you can run down the list of rounds and hit a button that says, Include in Stats to get things synced back up.

hey everyone

i have not read all the posts, but the review ratings seem way more positive than my experience. I have had arrcos for about 4 months. The amount of shots it misses is ridiculous. I have replaced my sensors, still the same thing. I am using an I phone and wearing golf shorts or pants every time. I get missing putts here or there, or even an occasional green side chip, but it misses fairway shots frequently. Doesn’t seem to have a pattern ie one club or anything. I find myself pulling out the phone and editing, or at least checking after every couple of shots. I also have to use a separate scorecard, because I don’t trust it. It can get pretty frustrating.  I am giving up on it and hope they get better in the future. Having said all that, there customer service was great and they tried to resolve the issue, but no luck. 
glad to hear so many others have had success

cheers

Darcy
