2156404Arccos Launches Arccos 360 System Featuring Low-Profile Sensors, Enhanced Shot Detection, New Features

(STAMFORD, CT) – Arccos – maker of Golf’s #1 Performance Tracker – announces its second-generation system, Arccos 360, will debut at retailers nationwide in early November and be available for pre-sale starting today at arccosgolf.com.

Boasting low-profile sensors that are more than 50% smaller and lighter than the original Arccos system, Arccos 360 ($249.99) also showcases a powerful new shot detection algorithm that increases accuracy and virtually eliminates the need for editing. Additional features include:

• Battery Guarantee – Certified for a minimum of two years without charging
• Power Saving – Allows users to play rounds in airplane mode, dramatically reducing phone battery drain and eliminating data roaming during international travel
• GPS 2.0 – Hands-free shot mapping combined with rangefinder distances in yards or meters to any point on more than 40,000 courses

“Our in-house teams of hardware and software engineers have achieved a series of technological breakthroughs that allow us to yet again provide users with a next-level performance tracking platform,” says Sal Syed, Arccos CEO and Co-Founder. “The combination of Live Shot Tracking, GPS 2.0 and Tour Analytics helps any player, regardless of skill level, unlock their personal performance data to lower scores and have more fun.”

Arccos 360 consists of 14 ultralight sensors that easily attach to the club grip and communicate with a free app for iOS and Android devices. The system seamlessly records every shot a golfer makes, analyzes the data in real time and reveals strengths and weaknesses to enhance on-course decision-making. Unlike competing products, it requires no tagging, tapping or other annoying disruptions to a player’s routine.

Widely heralded as one of the game’s most powerful technology platforms, Arccos delivers data on distances hit, club averages, driving accuracy, greens in regulation, sand saves, putts and more. By accessing the Tour Analytics web dashboard, Arccos users and their instructors can gain valuable insights via deep dives into stats, playing patterns and rich data comparison for every club, shot, hole and round.

Developed in conjunction with golf’s most renowned statistician, Peter Sanders, Tour Analytics draws from his work with PGA Tour star Zach Johnson and many others. It breaks down a players’ handicap into five key components – driving, approach, chipping, sand game and putting – helping golfers:

• Understand exactly how each part of their game contributes to scoring
• Compare data in each of the five components with golfers of similar handicaps
• Evaluate patterns across their entire golf history, supporting refinement of on-course tactics

The Arccos product portfolio also include Arccos Driver ($79.99), a single-sensor solution that delivers live data for tee shot distances, fairways hit and more. It functions by automatically detecting each drive, then using a player’s smart phone to record second shot position. Other features include the King of the Hole game, which turns any par 4 or par 5 into a virtual long drive competition.

portugal-ldet-champ-podiumThe Serbian Djurdjevic surprises and wins in Portugal

QUINTA DO CONDE (PORTUGAL). – Ilija Djurdjevic, the Serbian player of the circuit, won the ninth tournament of the Long Drivers European Tour after winning the final of the Portugal Championship against Maurice Allen in two clear sets with two shots of 328 and 330 yards. Allen loses thus his second consecutive final, but he achieves the top of the ranking as the Swedish Emil Rosberg also fallen into Quarters against Djurdjevic. The tournament was held for the first time in Portugal at Golf & Country Club Quinta do Peru, just 30 minutes far from Lisbon.

The longest ball of the day, sponsored by Williams Racing Golf, was of 349 yards reached by Maurice Allen, a mark that allowed him to qualify first in his group. The best hitters in each group were: Mauro Benaglio (# 1, 335y), the Finn Teemu Pitkänen (# 2, 338y), Allen (# 3, 349y) and Swede Emil Rosberg (# 4, 327y).

Portugal spectators witnessed how another rookie of the circuit, Ilija Djurdjevic, passed over Maurice Allen in a LDET final. Allen –who was leaving a knee injury– did not do his best and had the two sets OB in the final. At least, he took revenge against Brad Pearmain –who won him in Italy’s final– by beating him in the semi-finals. Instead, Djurdjevic played a very well throughout the tournament and left behind other big names of the Tour like Tanguy Marionex (BEL), the same Emil Rosberg (SWE) and the Swiss Mauro Benaglio.

After the ninth event of the season, the LDET Tour says goodbye to Europe and will travel to New Zealand to celebrate the Gran Finale. Finally, the top eight players are: Maurice Allen (5,400 points), Emil Rosberg (5000), Mauro Benaglio (4,300), Teemu Pitkänen (4,300), Timo Petrasch (3500), Tanguy Marionex (3400), Bob Boef ( 2500) and Ilija Djurdjevic (2500). The Road to New Zealand will decide the European Long Drive Champion. The championship will take place at Remuera Golf Club in Auckland next 5th and 6th November.
