SkyGolf Introduces The SkyCaddie Linx

SkyGolf® will introduce its new SkyCaddie® LINX golf rangefinder watch at this year’s PGA Merchandise Show (booth #1301). The LINX is a fashionable sport watch that comes preloaded with 34,000 high-precision, error-corrected golf courses to provide superior performance for golfers of all skill levels.

The new SkyCaddie LINX watch features a very clear, high-definition, sunlight-readable display with both positive and negative polarity to make it the most legible watch on the market. The LINX is Bluetooth-enabled and when paired with the NEW complimentary mobile app, golfers can upload scores and stats to SkyGolf’s online community for fast and easy review of their rounds without a cable. The Bluetooth connectivity also makes it easy to keep the LINX up-to-date with the latest error-corrected course updates onDemand to avoid the obsolescence of preloads. Using golf’s only ground-corrected precision course maps, the LINX provides dynamic distances to the front, center and back of the green, as well as provides TrueGround layup targets from the tee box through the entire hole with no membership required.

“The LINX comes preloaded and ready to use,” said Richard Edmonson, CEO, SkyGolf. “Following the same methodology that PGA Tour Caddies use to provide information to their Players, only SkyCaddie uses course maps that we have error-corrected from the ground, using survey-grade GPS equipment. This information alone allows golfers to arrive at the first tee with confidence, ready to go with critical yardages they can trust.”

The LINX is upgradable to allow golfers to receive optional features and benefits including IntelliGreen® technology which provides actual green shapes and pin targeting for precise distance to the hole. Upgrades also include a TrueGround® Target List with up to 40 hazards, carries and layups per hole.

“Not only is LINX the most accurate and reliable rangefinder watch on the market, it’s also the most fashionable and functional to make it a great every day watch,” added Edmonson. “With a removable band and bezel, the LINX offers 6 different band and bezel colors to choose from so golfers can easily personalize their watch with their look. And because it’s Bluetooth-enabled, they can use our complimentary smartphone or tablet app to upload and track their golf scores and stats immediately without having to locate a cable. And if golfers choose, they can turn on the option to receive alerts if they miss a text, email or phone call.”

The SkyCaddie LINX features easy-to-read, accurate front, center and back of green distances and precise layup targets from anywhere on the course dynamically from any angle of approach. The LINX finds the course automatically so golfers are ready to play on the first tee and it advances to the next hole automatically so they can stay focused on their game.

In addition to time and golf, fitness features included in the LINX make this not only an every-day watch but also a fully functional watch for multiple sports. A built-in odometer tracks location, distance, time, laps, speed, pace and calories burned during walks, runs or bike rides. All data can be uploaded to an online account to track progress.

SkyCaddie LINX Optional Upgrade Features Include:
IntelliGreen® Technology – SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen Technology displays the exact shape of the green from your angle of approach to turn every shot into a scoring opportunity. Get front carry, back of green distances, and use the up and down button to move the crosshairs on the green to dial into the pin or any other point on the green with IntelliGreen’s pin targeting feature.

TrueGround® Target List- The TrueGround Target List provides golfers with the critical distances they need to up to 40 hazards, carries and layups, even if they can’t see them! Golfers can scroll through the TrueGround Targets manually, or let the SkyCaddie automatically update the list of targets as they move from tee to green.

Digital Scoring and Stats – Track your score for every round with the SkyCaddie’s Digital Scorecard, plus see key stats like greens in regulation, fairways hit and total putts with ease. Using the SkyGolf mobile app and Bluetooth, sync scores and stats with SkyCaddie’s online community for the most comprehensive round analysis in the game. All options and upgrades are available with nominally priced membership plans. No memberships are required for basic functions.

The FREE SkyGolf Mobile app is available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The suggested retail price of the new SkyCaddie LINX, which is offered with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, is $249.95. For more information on the LINX, please visit www.skycaddie.com.
