660_SWINGBYTE2Whether you’re working by yourself or with a golf instructor, a golf swing analyzer can be an invaluable golf training aid to help diagnose and correct problems. Swingbyte just introduced the second generation of their golf swing analyzer, which includes a redesigned lightweight sensor. The product features a new latching mechanism that makes it easier to attach the Swingbyte to any club. It also offers a new alignment aid that allows users to easily orient Swingbyte 2 for consistent data session to session. The new Swingbyte 2 sensor also features a lower profile, an electronic power switch and covert LED lights.

The Swingbyte 2 golf swing analyzer captures key metrics from a golf swing and wirelessly transmits that data and an interactive visual representation of the swing to your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The 3-D golf swing analysis and metrics can be used by the golfer or with the assistance of a PGA instructor.

The new Swingbyte 2 weighs less than one ounce and attaches to any club just below the grip. As the club contacts a ball, the wireless sensor transmits a 3D digital version of the swing to the Swingbyte app. Digitized and video recorded images of the swing – along with measurements of club head speed, swing plane, face angle, loft and lie angles and tempo – can be viewed on smartphones and tablets during practice sessions and archived in the cloud for future reference.

“The new sensor makes the entire user experience with Swingbyte even easier so golfers can improve faster,” said Brian Payne, a former PGA Professional and a Swingbyte co-founder.
Swingbyte’s namesake product, released in April 2012, was hailed by Golf Digest as one of the “12 Coolest Items” at the 2012 PGA Show. Since its introduction, a number of top 100 instructors, including Dr. Jim Suttie, Chris O’Connell, Brad Redding and Kevin Weeks, have joined Swingbyte’s professional advisory board.

Swingbyte also recently unveiled an enhanced 2.0 version of its free mobile app for iPad. New features include the ability to record in-app video that auto-trims unnecessary footage and synchronizes recorded swings to Swingbyte’s 3D visuals and data. The Swingbyte golf training aid now provides golfers and instructors with the unique ability to accurately track the body and club throughout the swing. Both the original model and Swingbyte 2 sensors are compatible with the recently released 2.0 software.

Swingbyte 2 retails for $149 and includes the Swingbyte sensor, the free Swingbyte app and an online account at my.swingbyte.com, which includes additional analytics, community rankings and personal trends.

Fix Your Golf Swing in 3D with Swingbyte

SWINGBYTE

SWINGBYTEA new golf technology device could have the answer to what’s happening in your golf swing. Swingbyte is a new swing feedback device that garnered a great deal of attention at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando earlier this year. It’s also a pioneering pairing of your golf swing and your smartphone or tablet.

Swingbyte itself is a lightweight sensor that you can attach to the shaft of any golf club that communicates your swing via Bluetooth to your Apple or Android smartphone or tablet. The product provides a real-time 3D rendering of your golf swing from any angle, along with detailed statistics of your swing such as club head speed and impact angle. The Swingbyte information and graphics are a perfect golf improvement tool for golf instructors and golfers themselves, providing your golf club’s exact plane from address to impact.

Swingbyte was developed by three University of Chicago students who were inspired to find a new way to utilize smartphone technology to analyze the golf swing. Their Swingbyte product was named a top 3 Winner of the Chicago Booth 2011 New Venture Challenge – one of the top student business plan competitions in the United States.

“Swingbyte is a simple, convenient and affordable way for golfers to learn about their golf swing and improve their game,” said Brian Payne, a former winner on the Canadian PGA Tour who is vice president of business development for Chicago-based Swingbyte. “We think it’s going to be a great resource for golfers and golf teachers.”

Swingbyte is now available and can be ordered online for $149 at Golfsmith. The Swingbyte app is available on both the iOS and Android platforms.
