SwingByte - Virtual Coach - $169
Perect for the techie golfer on your list, SwingByte is a digital swing analyzer that transmits motion data to a golfer’s mobile device. The Virtual Coach component is an intuitive platform that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyze a golfer’s swing and identify the most important swing and body faults present. The Swingbyte sensor attaches to the shaft of any club, captures motion data and transmits it to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. From there, the Swingbyte app displays real-time swing data, allowing users to view their swing in full 3D along with swing speed, club path, plane, attack angle and much more. By employing a machine-learning algorithm that combines Swingbyte data with a knowledge base of over 100 pre-defined faults, Virtual Coach can identify the top swing flaws that impact a golfer’s ball flight. In a matter of seconds, Virtual Coach can display a series of video lessons and drills on how to correct and improve the swing flaws.
