Today on Kickstarter, you can find the offical launch of SwingLync : the first-of-its-kind wearable golf swing training technology that brings real-time body positioning analysis to everyday golfers through a customized mobile app.
According to the press release, the high-tech swing analysis system uses three wireless sensors and a corresponding phone app to teach and guide golfers exactly how to position their body for a powerful and consistent swing. Golfers can see a detailed snapshot of their body positioning data during the swing and receive measurable feedback to achieve improved body positioning.
“I have obsessed over the golf swing since I was a kid,” said Nick Mahowald, founder and creator of SwingLync. “After studying engineering, I realized that the key to an effective golf swing is proper body positioning. While attempting to improve my own swing, I was inspired to create an accessible technology for the everyday golfer to help them master the subtle changes that will have a major impact in their overall game.”
The three wireless sensors are about the size of a matchbox and fasten to the golfer’s waist, wrist and back. Data is then collected during every swing and instantly sent to the mobile app, reporting measurements at the four most important moments of the swing (setup, top, impact and finish). The feedback allows golfers to identify their biggest swing flaws and track their improvements over time.
SwingLync customizes target values based on each golfer’s 18-hole handicap, making it a powerful tool for all skill levels from beginners to scratch golfers. This new easy-to-use technology will be available September 6 (today) for pre-order through Kickstarter. Pricing will start at $179 for the entire system and accessories, with limited quantities available. The suggested retail price after Kickstarter will be $299.
