Korean company Smartgolf is continuing crowdfunding for its Smart Putter which features a built-in LED level indicator and laser pointer to help golfers achieve the perfect shot.
According to Smartgolf, a consistent, level swing and proper alignment are key factors when it comes to achieving the perfect putt.
The Smart Putter can help users do just that. For horizontal movement and a stable swing, the built-in LED level indicators on the head of the equipment light up instantly according to the level of the putter. For proper alignment, the laser pointer built onto the face of the putter can guide the golfer to ensure the ball is hit squarely for it to roll to the right path. With these features, golfers can expect to develop and sustain proper muscle memory that will grant them an early finish.
Another smart feature is the head of the Smart Putter, which sends real-time angular and location data to a user’s mobile device. The Smartgolf app will then provide the golfer with precise analysis of the putt, with the path, velocity, impact point, angle, and so on. The built-in LED level indicators and laser point, along with the live connection with the mobile application, can all be turned off completely with the push of a button located on the putter.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with over US$36,000 raised, pre-orders are now being taken on Indiegogo’s Indemand page. Golfers who wish to improve their putting can get the Smart Putter for $149 at Indiegogo. The recommended retail price is $299.
