Arccos unveils all-black Link model

11.22am 3rd June 2021 - New Products

Arccos Golf has launched a new all-black colour option for its Caddie Link, the company’s game-changing wearable device that allows Arccos members to automatically capture shot data without having to carry a smartphone on the course. 

Manufactured in a limited-batch of only 2,000 units, the Black Edition Link (£119.99/€129.99) showcases a matte black finish to provide golfers with an alternative option to its previously launched black/green model. 

First introduced in July 2020, the ultra-lightweight device allows golfers to play the game their way, with the choice of keeping a smartphone in their golf cart, bag, back pocket or elsewhere.

Now used by tens of thousands of Arccos Caddie members worldwide, Link is compatible with both iPhone and Android devices. Worn on a player’s belt, waistband or pocket, Link seamlessly pairs with the Arccos Caddie app and sensors to track shots in real time – including the club used and precise GPS location. It then automatically transfers that data to a user’s smartphone via Bluetooth, either during or after a round. 

“Link is a simple, yet sophisticated piece of hardware that our engineers custom-built from the ground up to suit the needs of Arccos members around the world,” said Steve Obsitnik, Arccos President & COO. “It truly allows every player to customise their on-course experience by engaging with their smart phone only if and when they choose,” he added.

Weighing less than 25 grams and measuring approximately 2.25” (L) x 1.25” (W) x 0.75” (D), Link has a 10-hour battery life and quickly charges via a standard micro-USB cable. Additional functionality includes the ability for a player to mark the hole location by simply pushing a button while standing next to the pin.

Arccos Caddie automatically tracks your shots while delivering in-round insights and post-round Strokes Gained Analytics. The system includes the world’s first A.I. powered rangefinder, smart distance club averages for each club and caddie advice for any hole on earth. These combine to help golfers of all skill levels make smarter decisions, improve faster and shoot lower scores. 

Arccos members have recorded over 7 million rounds and over 450 million shots with the system while playing courses in 194 countries. This feeds the world’s largest on-course dataset, which now includes 31 billion separate data points that are analysed to help golfers perform at their best. In 2020, the average new Arccos member improved their handicap by 5.02 strokes.

The Arccos Caddie system and Arccos Caddie Link are permitted under the Rules of Golf.
