Introducing TruSwing™: The first golf club swing sensor from Garmin®

UK, January 26th, 2016 – Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced TruSwing, the company’s first golf club sensor accessory. The small, lightweight and easy-to-use sensor measures the swing metrics golfers need to improve their game, and makes the data available immediately. Unlike other swing sensors currently on the market, TruSwing supports a variety of Approach® devices¹, so golfers can get instant swing feedback right from their wrist after each swing. For even more information, golfers can use TruSwing with the recently updated Garmin Connect™ mobile app on their smartphone or tablet to get detailed data like 3D animations, or to review their entire swing session.

“We’re thrilled to bring great swing training convenience with TruSwing to our Approach customers,” said Martin Resch, Garmin Senior Product Manager Outdoor & Golf for EMEA. “With swing feedback that can instantly be seen on the user’s wrist TruSwing allows golfers to stay fully focused on their routine, and it gives them a unique training experience unlike anything else that’s on the market. It provides golfers the information they need to get to a consistent swing within seconds and allows them to improve their swing over time”.

TruSwing Is An Easy-to-use Sensor That’s Ideal For Golfers At Any Level

Whether they’re new to the game or have been playing for years. It gives golfers advanced swing metrics on the screen of their Approach watch1 for easy analysis just seconds after every swing. Getting swing data presented right from their wrist allows golfers to stay fully focused on their routine and reduces unwanted distraction which makes swing training much more convenient and efficient. Due to its integration with many Garmin Approach devices¹ it can be used either on the driving range or even during a practice round. What this means to a golfer:

3D Swing Animations Through The Garmin Connect Mobile App

Additionally, TruSwing collects data to produce 3D swing animations through the Garmin Connect mobile app on a smartphone or tablet. With these animated diagrams, golfers can view side-by-side swing comparisons to analyse their data in real-time, individual swings can be analysed, and two swings can be overlaid on top of each other to compare and contrast. This allows golfers to learn about their own specific areas for improvement and they even can share this data with friends or their golf pro to get guidance on what to change or improve. All data that’s collected is stored in one place within Garmin Connect. Each session is organised by date, so users can go back to see each individual swing, and how they’ve improved since then. Garmin Connect can show golfers’ overall cumulative stats, as well as stats per session, which can get broken down by clubs used.

Golfers who use TruSwing with an Approach S6 watch will have access to the Advanced Swing Animations, which provides them with additional wrist path data to show where their forearm is throughout the swing. Garmin will offer a dedicated product bundle that includes Approach S6 together with TruSwing.

Unobtrusive Design

Weighing only 28 grams and measuring only 6.7 cm in length, TruSwing has an unobtrusive design that can be securely attached to any club below the grip. The robust attachment offers a firm grasp on the club, and the simple, quick mount-design makes swapping between clubs a breeze. TruSwing can get up to 12 hours of battery life on a single charge with plenty of storage to make it through multiple rounds before uploading to Garmin Connect. TruSwing boasts an IPX-7 water rating, which can withstand the elements if golfers get caught in a sudden rainstorm.
