Of course a real golf pro in your pocket would interfere with your swing, but the new Blast Golf product is the latest addition to Blast Motion’s suite of sports and active life motion capture solutions that pair with your iPhone to deliver real-time motion metrics and smart video capture. Attach the Blast Motion precision motion sensor and go play!
The sensor itself is the size of a quarter and weighs less than an ounce, but paired with your iPhone and the Blast Golf app data about your putting and swings is transferred via Bluetooth and can even be overlayed with live video that you or a playing/practice partner shoots of you on the course or the driving range.
So statistics like swing speed and loft at impact which have previously only been available as part of an expensive video lesson with a pro are now at your fingertips. You can also share them socially with friends to brag about how well you’re swinging the club. You can even create a highlight, or in my case a lowlight, reel of your entire round to review while you’re enjoying a drink at the 19th hole.
At $149.95, Blast Golf isn’t exactly cheap for its size, but it’s a fraction of the cost of a full video session with a pro. And what avid golfer isn’t willing to pay for another gadget to potentially shave a few strokes off of the old score card?
