Golf Pad LINK Production

Golf Pad LINK Production

Golf Pad CEO, Konstantin Roslyakov, just returned from overseeing the start of production of Golf Pad LINK. The Golf Pad team has devoted countless hours perfecting every elements of the highly anticipated automatic golf game tracking system

Here's the latest update:

  • Final samples made on the actual production line were reviewed and look great! 
  • One of the electronics components (the GPS+GLONASS chip) had a delay on the supplier side. As a result, full scale production is delayed by a couple of weeks.  
  • Golf Pad is expecting to have all Kickstarter rewards shipped from the manufacturer in mid May and shipped to early backers in late May / early June.  
  • Software is feature-complete and Golf Pad is testing with variety of phone makes/models.  

While the supplier delay for the GPS+GLONASS chip is disappointing, the Golf Pad team keeps to the highest quality standards. They would rather wait a bit for the best-performance component than substitute with something inferior.

When can I buy Golf Pad LINK? 

Golf Pad LINK will be shipped to Kickstarter backers in late May / early June. Once those are fulfilled, Priority Access customers will be able to place orders. After which, sales will be open to the general public. If you're one of the many golfers eager for Golf Pad LINK, sign up for Priority Access here

Golf Pad GPS + Smartwatch

Golf Pad GPS + Smartwatch

A common question golfers ask is “What kind of smartwatch should I use with Golf Pad GPS?”

Golf Pad GPS, a golf rangefinder and scoring app, is compatible with more watches than any golf tracking app on the market today. This means golfers have a lot of options when choosing the best smartwatch.

 

3 factors to consider when deciding which smartwatch to use with Golf Pad GPS:

 

  • Cost - be realistic with your budget. Yes, it’s nice to look at the latest models, but if you’ll only be using the watch on the golf course, it may be better to save the cash for more golf balls instead. You can buy at watch for under $40 and get great performance with Golf Pad GPS.

 

  • Appearance - Smartwatches have become more refined looking in recent years. They are lower profile with discrete bands and watch faces that look like actual wrist watches. You’ll  spend a couple hundred to as much as a couple thousand dollars on these more modern watches. If looks aren’t important to you, an older model will save you a lot of money.

 

  • Features - The models listed below all work seamlessly with the Golf Pad GPS app. If you want to use your watch for other features, like music, measuring work-outs, or staying in touch with friends on social media, you’ll want to consider all the features offered. Many watches have lots of stand-alone features. Others require the use of applications.

 

Current compatible smartwatch models include:

Samsung Gear (including Gear Fit2)

Android Wear Including:

Update July, 2018: Pebble and Magellan Echo are also compatible with Golf Pad, however they've been discontinued and are currently in maintenance mode with the manufacturers. As a result, Golf Pad compatibility may not continue to be supported.

Apple Watch (including Series 2)

If you are considering a smartwatch and aren’t sure if your model will work with Golf Pad GPS, please contact us. We’ll verify compatibility for you.

Ready For Golf Pad LINK?

Ready For Golf Pad LINK?

Golf Pad LINK Launch

Kirkland, Washington: Golf Pad, Inc. has launched a Kickstarter campaign for it’s latest product, Golf Pad LINK. Golf Pad LINK is an automatic, real-time golf game tracking system for iPhone and Android users. Golfers play while LINK instantly records the distance of every shot and provides real-time game insight. Golfers can view results on a phone, online or on a smartwatch.

iPhone and Android

If you own an Android, you’ve likely been using the NFC reader in your phone for many apps. Apple, however, has kept NFC functionality limited to Apple Pay for iPhone users.

This has posed a challenge for golfers who want to use the technology to track their golf score, distances and stats. Golf Pad LINK overcomes this challenge with a built in location sensor.

Android and Apple users will appreciate the advantage of tracking their game without carrying their phone. This means no phone battery drain, no awkward phone in the pocket. A wireless reader tracks and records the golfer’s statistics. It automatically syncs the data when the phone is in range. Users can share results in real-time with friends and see how they compare to other players.

 

“Until now, our top-rated Golf Pad TAGS could only be used with Android,” observed Golf Pad CEO, Konstantin Roslyakov. “Golfers love the game insights and wanted iPhone support too. Golf Pad LINK addresses that.”

 

A Real Game Changer

The reader is designed to fit into a pocket. It’s thinner and more discreet than other game tracking devices. It also includes a removable clip if golfers prefer to wear it on a belt. Another advantage is the rechargeable battery, which lasts for two rounds of golf.

Golf Pad LINK sets the bar high when it comes to accuracy. It uses both GPS and GLONASS satellite tracking. This means faster and more accurate distances. Other game tracking systems only use GPS.

Golf Pad LINK comes with a wireless reader, 15 ultra-lightweight tags (one for each club) and the Golf Pad GPS application. The popular app has earned the highest rating in the sports category with nearly eleven thousand online reviews. It’s been downloaded over 1.3 million times and used to record over 3.7 million rounds of golf. Founded in 2011, Golf Pad is the only golf tracking system manufacturer named a Top Developer by Google.

 

The system retails for $229.00. Golf Pad is offering significant discounts for a limited number of early backers on their Kickstarter campaign, located here.
