Arccos Launches New Version of The Revolutionary Link Wearable

STAMFORD, CT – Hot on the heels of releasing its next generation Smart Sensors, Arccos Golf – pioneer of big data and Artificial Intelligence for golf – has today launched a new and improved Link to meet growing demand for its automatic shot tracking wearable first introduced two years ago.

Designed to be worn on a player’s belt, waistband or pocket the new Arccos Link (Gen2) offers golfers the next level tech for the next level of performance, thanks to the capacity to automatically record shots without having to carry a phone on the course. As well as its sleeker look and improved clip functionality, the new device incorporates advanced microphone enhancements with GORE® protective vents to deliver the most reliable, high quality shot tracking performance in golf.

The powerful weather-resistant device weighs less than an ounce (25 grams) and is smaller in length than a bank card – measuring approximately 2.25” in length, 1.25” in width and 0.75” deep. It boasts
a battery life of up to 10 hours, with quick charging via a micro-USB cable. And players using Link will extend their phone battery life by up to 25%. Once paired with the Arccos Caddie app, Smart Sensors seamlessly sync with the lightweight wearable to provide golfers with the ability to track shots in real time. Link then automatically transfers scoring data to the phone app via Bluetooth, either during or after the round depending on player preference.

Arccos members using Link can either keep their phone in a golf bag, cart, trolley or back pocket for quick access to the game’s first A.I. powered rangefinder and Caddie advice. Players can also use their phone to listen to music, take calls or videos during the round. Additional functionality of Link includes the option for a player to mark the exact hole location on the green with a simple push of main button when standing next to the pin. This provides more accurate putting insights and pinpoints areas for player improvement via the exclusive Strokes Gained Analytics software.

Arccos has also expanded the remote programmable features of Link, so it will always provide the most current shot tracking models – something previously unavailable with the original device. In addition, Link will deliver enhanced shot tracking thanks to new Arccos automatic shot tracking technology introduced last month.

Like the New Smart Sensors (Gen 3+), the latest device is now packaged in a more sustainable box, as the brand continues its drive toward more environmentally friendly products.
Compatible with iPhone and Android devices, the new Link retails at $149.99. Gen3+ Smart Sensors are sold separately, while the first year membership is included for $12.99 per month billed annually.

Golf’s first Artificial Intelligence platform, Arccos automatically tracks shots while delivering incredibly comprehensive in-round insights. The system is highlighted by an A.I.-powered rangefinder, smart club distances and caddie advice for every golf hole on earth. These innovations helped new Arccos members who played at least ten rounds lower their handicap by an average of 5.78 strokes in 2021. In total, Arccos members have now recorded more than 525 million shots during 10 million rounds in 194 countries, while the world’s largest on-course dataset consists of over 35 billion separate data points.

Both the Arccos system and the Arccos Link wearable are permitted under the Rules of Golf (USGA
Decision Numbers 2018-0414 and 2020-0305).
