Slim-line SkyCaddie SW2 Watch Adds Bluetooth for Score Tracking

HADDENHAM, BUCKS, UK – SkyCaddie®, the most trusted Rangefinder in Golf, introduces the no-fees SkyCaddie SW2 Watch, the next generation of the best-selling, award-winning SkyCaddie Watch.

One of the SW2’s key new features is the addition of Bluetooth® Smart technology for easy data syncing and score tracking. The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch is also a slimmer, lighter model than its predecessor, and battery life has also been improved with up to 14 hours in golfing conditions.

And here’s a tip to help you in the monthly medal: wear the SkyCaddie SW2 Watch and enjoy a unique competitive advantage over golfers who use a different GPS brand.

Being a SkyCaddie, the SW2 Watch is pre-loaded and ready-to-play with golf’s only fee-free, ground-corrected precision course maps, covering approximately 35,000 golf courses around the world, including 99% of courses in Great Britain and Ireland. These course maps are exclusive to SkyCaddie users, and are golf’s only maps which are both originated and regularly updated on foot by trained mappers using professional surveying equipment.

Refreshing the pre-loaded courses on your SkyCaddie SW2 Watch is easy and free of charge, ensuring that you play with golf’s most up-to-date error-corrected course maps, and instantly making the pre-loaded maps on other brands’ GPS devices obsolete.

In this way, only SkyCaddie customers know that they have golf’s most up-to-date, complete and reliable course information. Remember, if you haven’t got a SkyCaddie on your wrist, beware outdated golf course information!

For an accurate yardage, just ask the golfer wearing a SkyCaddie.

Using this exclusive data, the SkyCaddie SW2 Watch provides at-a-glance distances to the Front, Centre and Back of every green, displaying convenient wrist-mounted information on its bright, easy-to-read display.

And as you play your way around the golf course your SW2 Watch automatically advances with you using Intelligent Automation. SW2 also features Auto-Course Recognition – it knows where you are playing golf today.

The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch also has a Shot Distance function, enabling you to mark and measure how far you have hit the ball.

“The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch offers ready-to-play simplicity, yet it is also one of golf’s most powerful GPS watches available today,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyCaddie Senior Vice-President, International Sales & Marketing.

“With a slim, lightweight profile, improved functionality and extended battery life, this watch is ideal if you’re looking for quick, accurate distances to the Front, Centre and Back of the green. Plus, the addition of Bluetooth® Smart technology enables you to sync your scores and track your progress over time to see where your game is improving – and to see which areas need some work!”

Here’s how to make maximum use of your SkyCaddie SW2 Watch’s built-in Bluetooth® Smart technology.

During your round of golf you can opt to store personal scorecard data on your SkyCaddie. For a nominal £14.95 annual membership fee, you can upload this data to the SkyGolf 360™ Cloud by pairing your SW2 Watch via Bluetooth® with the complimentary SkyGolf 360™ Mobile App.

Then you can track your scores online and identify your strengths and weaknesses from up to 20 previous rounds of golf with a host of useful web tools, or you can enjoy chatting in the vibrant SkyGolf 360™ online community with fellow SkyCaddie owners who between them have logged over 200 million holes of golf.

The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch also functions as an attractive timepiece, and it also includes a host of fitness features, making it 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, and you can also time your rounds of golf with a pace-of-play timer.

The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch includes a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with an extended battery life, giving you up to 14 hours of continuous GPS use on the golf course between charges.

The SkyCaddie SW2 Watch costs just £129.95, making it the most affordable option on the market for golfers who want the latest golf course information on their wrist.
