Motorola has just entered the golf-specific GPS market with its introduction of the MotoActv Golf Edition. A cutting-edge GPS Golf tracker, virtual caddy, and online clubhouse, users can track their golf game on up to 20,000 courses worldwide right from their wrist.
The GPS tracks the front, center, and back distances to greens and hazards, while the virtual caddy keeps track of your scorecards, club selection, and key statistics. Other benefits of using the MotoActv include tracking data like total steps taken, distance covered walking the course, and calories burned, thus making it possible to simultaneously stay fit and shave shots from your scorecard.
MotoActv has teamed up with pro golfer and three-time PGA Tour winner Bubba Watson to share the news about the new Motorola product. “The new Golf Edition of MotoActv has features that allow players to make better decisions on the course,” said Watson. “From the weekend warriors trying to find the distance to the back of the green to great golfers who want to analyze their game and share their stats with friends, MotoActv helps improve scores and makes the game more enjoyable.”
After your round of golf, the device wirelessly uploads all of the data to the MotoActv web site. Motorola explains: “You get an unparalleled virtual representation of your round using a satellite view of the course. Move your mouse over the arc of the ball flight and pull up details of the shot you played. You can also keep every scorecard for reference, and similar to other MotoActv workouts you can share your rounds with friends.”
The MotoActv Golf Edition officially goes on sale April 1. Having a caddy on your wrist does not come cheap; the unit carries a hefty price tag of $299. More details and ordering options are available on the company web site at https://motoactv.com/.
