Epson America this week announce the introduction of the M-Tracer MT500GII Golf Swing Analyzer, designed to enable golfers of any skill level to improve their game through highly accurate and detailed swing data collection and analysis.
Leveraging Epson’s leadership in advanced sensing technologies,
is a club-mounted golf swing analyzer designed to give golfers unprecedented insights into every element of their swing. Part of the new “Epson Active” product category, the M-Tracer is the latest in a line of sports and fitness devices from the company to help athletes of any age or capability improve their performance through precise data and easy-to-interpret feedback.
“With its high-resolution sensors, the M-Tracer gives golfers a complete swing breakdown, providing specific, actionable information at an incredible level of detail,” said Randy Bergstedt, manager, Epson Active. “The introduction of the M-Tracer demonstrates Epson’s commitment to lead the sports wearables market with innovative, high-performance devices.”
“Golf is a highly technical sport where the smallest details and adjustments can make all the difference in getting the best out of your game,” said David Leadbetter, world-renowned instructor, owner of over 20 golf academies around the world and Golf Digest Teaching Professional. “The Epson M-Tracer provides real-time feedback and immediate solutions that help golfers develop a more efficient and powerful swing. This information empowers golfers to improve their swing in an easy and intuitive manner, ultimately resulting in lower scores and more fun.”
The M-Tracer securely attaches to the golf club grip to capture and send data to an iOS or Android smartphone in real-time via Bluetooth® at the rate of 1,000 frames per second. With a built-in Inertial Measurement Unit developed by Epson for industrial applications, the M-Tracer tracks and records the swing path of the club, club-head speed, club-head path, face angle at the time of impact, tempo and more.
Once the data has been collected and stored, the M-Tracer smartphone app shows the golfer’s full swing path in 3D and offers the ability to rotate the view and compare their swing against that of a pro-level golfer or their own previously recorded swings. The app also provides comprehensive graphical analysis of the impact zone, shaft rotation, club speed and swing tempo. It even has a built in freeze frame option for the critical “halfway back” and “at the top” positions.
M-Tracer MT500GII Golf Swing Analyzer will be available in March 2015 with a MSRP of $299, through a wide range of retailers and at the Leadbetter Golf Academy. For complete M-Tracer MT500GII specifications and additional information, visit www.epson.com/golf
