has designed a new GPS watch for golfers to help them enhance their game. By using automatic shot detection, the TomTom Golfer 2 will help players measure distances to fairways, greens, and hazards. A companion app called “MySports” can sync wirelessly to a smartphone and will give players post-round analysis and insight into shot patterns and greens in regulation.
This lightweight, water-resistant device will also contain an auto scorecard that will count the score of each round. TomTom has come out with a watch like this before, but it did not have some of the statistical information and advice that this new one has to offer:
Green Distances – Precise yardages to front, centre and back of green.
Hazards – See distances to individual hazards along the fairway.
Lay-up- See remaining distances to lay-up points.
Greenview – View unique green and hazard graphics before your shot.
Round Tracking – Keep track of the score, distance, and time for your round.
Daily Course Updates: Receive course updates wirelessly from your smartphone.
Wireless Syncing: Sync your session wirelessly on TomTom MySports app.
Weather and water resistant to 40M – Play in any weather.
Perfect Fit: Select large or small straps to ensure the perfect fit for your wrist.
