Golf Watch Features
The Swing Strength feature gauges the force of your swing as compared to the strength and speed of a previously calibrated swing. After performing a series of test swings, the user selects the swing to be used as a benchmark. From here, the feature records the strength of your swing in order to help you acquire a more consistent stroke.
This feature is a measure of the relationship between the speed of the up-swing as compared to the speed of the down-swing. The S6 aims for a 3:1 ratio of up-swing time to down-swing time and will emit a series of sounds that alert you to the best time to begin your downswing.
In those all-to-familiar moments when a shot goes awry and the pin is nowhere in sight, this feature utilizes the S6’s overhead mapping ability and your specific course’s layout to point you in the correct direction of the pin, making your next shot seem a bit less daunting!
Hi Resolution Touchscreen
The S6’s user-friendly, highly visible touchscreen allows for easy navigation of the S6’s features even in the harshest of lighting conditions. It also responds to the touch of gloves, making their removal unnecessary.
