SwingSmart Duo golf swing analyzer launched for iOS and Android

NORTH BARRINGTON, Ill. -- NewSpin Golf announces the launch of SwingSmart Duo, the latest generation of its award-winning game improvement system that now functions on Android and iOS devices and features HiQ Technology that captures golfers' swings with unrivaled accuracy and consistency.

Requiring zero user set-up, adjustment or calibration, HiQ Technology is built using a proprietary pattern recognition process not found anywhere else in the industry, which increases the accuracy of captured swing data, including the renowned SwingSmart 3D Swing View™. It utilizes a patent-pending algorithm that adapts to each user's swing to faithfully measure their drives, chips and putts.

"By listening to golfers, removing hindrances and enhancing the extremely precise swing analysis for each club - from driver through putter - we're positioned for even greater dominance across all sectors of this market," says Tom McClaughry, Chief Technology Officer of NewSpin Golf. "Thanks to this new technology and its availability for Android and iOS, more golfers will be able to learn how they can make their swings more consistent, efficient and repeatable."

The SwingSmart Duo system ($249.99) features a small (less than 1 oz.) Bluetooth-enabled sensor module that securely clips to a golf club shaft. It wirelessly communicates with the company's app that is available for free download on the Google Play and iTunes stores, which account for more than 90 percent of the worldwide smartphone marketplace.

Detailed, easy-to-interpret data instantaneously sent to a user's smartphone or tablet with each swing includes:

• Key Stats - Tempo, swing speed, face angle, shaft lean; info on each and optimization tips provided within the app by world-renowned instructor Peter Kostis

• Path and Plane - 3D Swing View shows 360-degrees of a player's swing motion, highlighting the exact route of the club head from any angle

• Putting Results - More than just a full-swing tool, the system also provides info on the putting stroke to help players lower the number of putts taken per round

• Personal Best - Data from a golfer's best swings can be saved and used as points of reference

Developed by a team of expert technologists, SwingSmart combines tracked stats with the 3D Swing View to provide a real-time snapshot of how the club is being manipulated through impact. This allows players to adjust and learn what is successful for their individual games. A great, year-round practice tool, SwingSmart features a special training mode that provides the key data necessary to help players learn the proper swing motion, without the pressure of hitting a ball.

Designed and assembled in the USA, SwingSmart's portable sensor module comes with a personal carrying case and rechargeable battery that lasts more than four hours. It is widely recognized by PGA Professionals as a useful way to augment lessons. The device is endorsed by Peter Kosits, a renowned broadcasting personality and GOLF Magazine "Top 100 Teacher," who provides users with a series of unique, informative and free instructional videos available exclusively in-app.

GOLF Magazine recently named SwingSmart the "Best App for Instant Feedback" and it received the Product Ingenuity award in the Emerging Companies category during the International Network of Golf (ING) Industry Honors program at this year's PGA Merchandise Show.
