With one model following another being released in quick succession, golf equipment manufacturers are competing for the market share of wearable and accessory innovations. It seems like there is increasing competition as each puts their best foot forward to provide the golf aid that will help you improve your game. One open field with the fiercest competition is golf swing analysis. Golf swing analyzer sensors and apps abound, and the market is still expanding as producers try to outdo one another.
With the Zepp Golf 2 Swing Analyzer, an improvement over their first swing analyzer offering, Zepp, one of the leaders in golf technology, is stepping up the competition. Zepp upgraded their technology to create Golf 2, which includes a new design, more precise and dynamic data analysis, and an additional training program, as if the 3D swing analysis of Golf 1 wasn’t adequate enough.
Let’s look first at the more visible change Zepp did to their new golf swing analyzer. From the previous square shape, Zepp’s Golf 2 is now round, but still looks the same for me. It has an increased battery life from 5 to 8 hours on full charge and continuous use. An extra accelerometer was added to provide more accurate swing data. These updates, along with some others (which we will be discussing in this review) come with an increase in the retail price of the unit.
Zepp, with the Golf 2 Swing Analyzer, continued with the glove-attach sensor that is more convenient for playing because you don’t need to remove it when switching clubs, unlike the other clip-on the shaft sensors. In this manner the the Zepp Golf 2 can be more durable than other golf swing analyzers because it stays in place most of the time. The small size of the sensor is almost weightless, so you won’t feel there’s an attachment on your glove at all.
The whole function of the analyzer is fulfilled from the sensor that collects the swing data to the mobile app that shows and translates the captured information. Quickly download the Zepp app onto your mobile device and customize use by providing the information being asked. Once downloaded, pair your sensor and device via Bluetooth and in an instant you can head on to swinging. This integration will only take you a few minutes following the installation guide. Zepp Golf 2 is compatible with both iOS and Android systems of your mobile phone or tablet.
The video below showcases live use of the app and golf swing analyzer at a driving range so you can see for yourself how easy it is to use.
Golf 2 Swing Analyzer captures your swing and translates it into stats and metrics. Data that determines club head speed and swing plane, hand direction, swing tempo, backswing angle and hip rotation are all read by the analyzer and constitute your swing characteristics. The sensor works perfectly as it shows no lag time from the shot made to bringing in the data on your mobile device.
Another way it tracks is by recording every shot so that you’re able to review your swing from various views and angles, like club plane, hand path, and swing shape and top, front, side, back, and angular views of your swing. This feature will enable you to closely study your swing to develop a perfect swing or a swing that will work for you. These are two different scenarios as the analyzer provides metrics that are theoretical and actual views that are practical.
When it comes to the app data presentation, Zepp made sure that it is easily understandable with a traffic light color coding and scoring system. The colors and scores represent your progress towards the goal. For instance, a green color is a positive determinant on a swing metric and a score of 90/100 is a close to perfect shot.
The stats and metrics gathered from each shot and game are then examined using the app to provide real-time feedback and an assessment of the crucial components of the swing. The swing analysis is generally accurate, but occasionally (probably due to bugs), it provides an illogical score that you can ignore and reset for another attempt.
Zepp Golf 2 swing analysis is another tool you can use to analyse your swings. The app automatically records a video of your swing in real time from any angle so that you can see exactly how you hold yourself and swing the club. You can enable video playback to better evaluate your swing by watching it over time, or you can ask an instructor for advice on how to get better.
Zepp Insight sends thorough daily and weekly performance reports to your email along with corresponding videos and various viewpoints to aid in the improvement of your swing.
Comparing Your Swing
After filming your swings, you can compare them to the best players on the Tour in 3D and HD videos, or even to your own videos, to see how you’re progressing. Frame by frame, watch their swings to learn how they accomplish it.
Improving Your Game
It would be wiser to continue learning from others, especially from the pros training videos, as you get better at each swing and gather the necessary data to make it better. To assist you in perfecting your swing, Zepp 2 Golf Swing Analyzer gathers swing analysis videos, practical instruction, and access drills created by some of the top golf instructors. Use the library of training resources to consciously train toward a specific objective.
Baseball swing, swish drills, kneeling drills, and many other practise exercises are among them. There is also a training programme included, and you will be given a video clip to watch. Work on the exercises, then test yourself to see how much you’ve improved. These features of the app are genuinely motivating because they give you resources and opportunities to improve your skills. Instead of just attempting to identify your swing faults on your own, using this can add another dimension to your training by offering drills and video tutorials.
The SmartCoach, which creates a set of drills specifically for you based on your swing data, is one outstanding feature of the Zepp Golf 2 Swing Analyzer. The app will ask you to hit 10 balls so that it can analyse your shot and point out any areas that need improvement. SmartCoach will then suggest training that is specifically made to improve your shot-making at that point.
Zepp Golf 2 Swing Analyzer is an improvement over its very powerful predecessor that is clearly worth the extra money. The new design is an enhancement, and this swing analyzer includes more features than the norm. To help you improve your swing and overall game, Zepp Golf 2 has more in-app resources and information, including drills, training, and SmartCoach.
Although the data it gives is all helpful, it takes some time to become familiar with it and understand how to make it work best for your training. You will get the most out of it and utilise all of its functions if you give it some time to grow acclimated to you.
The Zepp Golf 2 can only provide feedback and recommendations with the service it offers, just like any other swing analyzer. It will take commitment, patience, and repetition to polish your talents if you want to improve your swing and game. Developing your swing remains entirely depends on you.
