Too late for me. If this device offers any improvement on tagging reliability I would have definitely purchased. Sold my Arccos and went back to Game Golf though. Arccos is the undisputed leader in statistical analysis for this segment, but Game Golf just works better for tracking shots (my experience).

I want more info on this... The idea sounds good. What i want to know as well is, does it improve the shot tracking. especially around the puts. That is the one part of the system that i have the most issues with.

This is interesting, it's definitely something worth looking into. I don't mind the phone in my pocket, it's more that I have to take my wallet out of my front left pocket. I can't stand anything in my back pockets.

There is no tagging involved just wear it and it registers your shot like you phone would, this links to your phone via Bluetooth so it can transmit data during or after your round whatever you choose, as well they will be updating the Apple Watch app in March to act as another one phone in the front pocket option.

This may be just the thing that gets me to go all in on Arccos. Birthday/father's day will be my likely go time if I pull the trigger

I appreciate the response, but I'm well aware of how it works. Tapping has never been an issue for me. Missing shots has been an issue which is what I meant when I said "tagging". The system still has to tag the shot whether or not it requires action on the user's part. Arccos simply missed the mark too many times for me to bother anymore which is why I went back to GG. I also ran into mapping issues at 4 different courses in my area, but those were relatively easy to fix through Arccos Support. My frustration there is that the "fix" only applied to the next round and not the one I had just played. I know Arccos works well for a number of people and I'm glad for that, but it didn't work for me. 

What I meant by my previous post was that if Arccos Link does anything to increase the reliability of shot tracking (tagging shots) and it had come out sooner, I likely would have purchased it and kept my Arccos. I would be interested in learning if users do notice a difference in reliability with the new device though. I'd be willing to go back to Arccos for the better data analysis if I didn't have to correct so many shots every round.

My only issue with this is that it still doesn't provide yardage details without using your phone. That's the biggest negative for me with arccos is needing to bring your phone in and out of your pocket all the time to check your yardages. I just don't enjoy doing it. 

If this thing worked like a voice caddy, where you could press a button and it would read your yardage to you? Oh baby....

I think that's a really good suggestion.

My favorite solution if you're okay with GPS yardages is a watch. I used to have a Garmin Approach S2 and loved how quick and easy it was to check yardages. Even though I have a laser now, I still contemplate getting another watch to assist when I hit an errant shot and don't have line of sight. This happened to me once last season and I had an app open on my phone for backup, but I couldn't get it to lock onto my position and give me an accurate yardage when I needed to hit the shot. I wound up making a bit of a guess that just so happened to work out well. I hate having to guess like that though. I'm not particularly good at judging distance outside of putting, chipping, and pitching. It just added a lot of pressure to a shot when I really didn't need it.

Good point but if you get or have a Apple Watch then there is no need to take your phone out ever to see yardage, as well they will be updating the Apple Watch app in March to no have to keep your phone in your pocket. Just an added cost of having to get an Apple Watch if you don’t have one already and being comfortable playing with a watch on.

I may be incorrect but only an Apple Watch app, though you can use Android for the phone app I am not aware of a non Apple Watch option at this point.

Likewise. Let's buy it for each other so we feel less guilty? Amazon + drop ship?

I use the Arccos system now and it seems great. Only used it for 2-3 rounds so far. The Apple iWatch app is ok, not great. Maybe i have not cross referenced it enough to verify yardages. I trust my rangefinder more.

As for the Link, i tend to pull out my phone quite a bit to check info on it so the link is kinda pointless. Arccos does not do a great job at putts and also adjusting the flag position on greens. Using Arccos as a complete system tee to green will make the Link useless. But if you only care about yardages then and dont need to watch over your phone then the Link would be great. A phone in the pocket can be annoying.

I'm hoping that the Link can be paired with the Apple Watch so that you don't need to keep your phone on you (note: when you use the apple watch app, the yardages come from your phone not your watch).  That way you'll get your yardages and tracking.  I've emailed Arccos customer support and will let you know what I find out.
