Most Popular Golf Tech On Kickstarter Right Now

by Cindy Scillo on February 26, 2017

Golf Pad, Inc. has launched it’s second successful Kickstarter campaign. This time, for the highly anticipated golf game tracking system, Golf Pad LINK. Nearly 900 backers have already raised over $122,000 – double the original funding goal – with 10 days left till the campaign ends.

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.

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.”

The Golf Pad LINK wireless reader is the slimmest and lightest golf tracking reader on the market.

  • Dimensions: 56mm wide x 52mm tall x 13-20mm thick
  • Golf Pad LINK reader weighs only 50g / 1.8oz

The removable clip makes it even more portable, lightweight and discreet. The battery lasts two rounds or more on a single charge.

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 through March 9, 2017. After the campaign, Golf Pad LINK will be available on Golf Pad’s website, GolfPadGPS.com/LINK
