Even if you don’t know any golfers, you probably know that they’re obsessed with perfecting their swing. As a result, it’s now possible to buy swing-improving gear such as special cameras, gyroscopic clubs, and sensor-equipped gloves. One of the latest such aids is a device/app combo known as Swingbyte2.

The electronic device clamps onto the shaft of any club, just below the grip. When you take a swing, it automatically registers information such as lie angle, club head speed, face angle, and other data. Everything is wirelessly transmitted via Bluetooth to your iOS or Android mobile device, where you can review it afterwards using the free app. All of the data is saved, so you can track your progress over time.

Additionally, if you use your smartphone or tablet’s camera to shoot video of yourself taking the swing, the app will provide you with a split-screen display of your swing and a 3D graphic representation of it.

The device’s battery is charged via a USB port, and is good for about four hours of use per charge.

Swingbyte2 is available now from the product website and via AT&T retailers, for US$149. It can be seen in use in the video below.
