RIDGELAND, Mississippi — SkyGolf® has introduced the SkyCaddie LX3, the next addition to its very popular LX family of watches.
"The SkyCaddie LX3 is the simplest and most powerful way to measure yardages among GPS options available today whether among wearables or handhelds" said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf SVP, International Sales & Marketing. "With a slim, lightweight profile and built-in Bluetooth® Smart technology, this watch is ideal for golfers looking for simplicity and affordability to provide accurate distances to the front, center and back of the green."
Preloaded with over 35,000 ready-to-play course maps, The SkyCaddie® LX3 provides dynamic distances to the front, center and back of each green from your angle of approach along with Fairway Target and Layup Target into the green. Intelligent automation provides auto-course select, auto-hole advance and auto-distance to keep your hands free and mind focused on playing the best golf of your life. The LX3 is powered by SkyGolf's best-in-class TrueGound® course maps. Only SkyGolf walks every course with professional survey-grade equipment to create the most complete and most reliable course maps in the game.
The LX3 features an easy-to-read, sunlight-readable display and options to customize with reverse polarity and analog or digital time displays. Golfers are able to track stats for putts and fairways hit, as well as score. A soft-touch silicone band provides all-day comfort. In addition to time and golf features, the LX3 features calorie tracking and a built-in odometer to track your distance, pace, and speed for any sport. Smartphone notifications show incoming calls, voicemails, texts, and emails from supported devices.
"The LX3 is a great GPS rangefinder for golfers who want the basic front, center and back of green information with no annual fee required. They have the opportunity to expand the product by adding upgrade features," added Surman. "Not only can they add more information such as full target listing and IntelliGreen™, they can also wirelessly connect it to the SkyCaddie Mobile App for expanded views of the golf hole."
Golfers can upgrade to a nominally-priced SkyGolf® Membership plan and their SkyCaddie LX3 will also have these advanced features:
• Up To 40 Targets Per Hole. Get critical distances to bunkers, carries, water, creeks, end of fairway and more!
• Patented IntelliGreen™ Technology. Displays the exact shape of the green, rotated to your angle of approach to provide accurate carry distances to the front, back and any other point of the green from your angle of approach. Move the cursor to any point on the green to get the yardage you need for a precision approach shot.
• SkyCaddie Mobile App. Wireless synchronization between the SkyCaddie LX3 and the SkyCaddie Mobile app provides stunning graphics of the entire hole on your smartphone when simple numbers are not enough. The LX3's powerful GPS engine is used by SkyCaddie Mobile to improve accuracy up to 300% over all other golf apps and saves phone battery, too!
Bluetooth® Smart technology is built into the LX3 and when paired with the SkyGolf 360™ Mobile App, provides golfers the option to 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 LX3 up-to-date with the latest error-corrected course updates to avoid the obsolescence of preloads.
Designed to be fun and flexible, the optional SkyGolf 360™ cloud service lets you track as many or as few stats as you want. All of your scorecard data on the LX3 is wirelessly uploaded to your My 360 personal performance locker within the SkyGolf 360™ Cloud. Once uploaded, you can review your performance from any mobile or desktop device without the need for a cable. Share scores, stats and chat with friends on the news feed. Gain insight with advanced scoring and stats with simple, easy-to-understand charts and graphs to help identify your game's strengths and weaknesses using post-round game analysis tools.
