Arccos Link Pro Now Tracks Shot Data In Pocket Without a Phone

Arccos has announced the launch of the third-generation Link Pro, a device that enables golfers to track their shot data without the use of a phone.

Touted as a major step forward in automating the shot-tracking process, the Link Pro is about the size of a car key fob and can be placed directly into a golfer’s pocket. The Link Pro pairs with Arccos sensors—which capture impact data while being attached to the grip end of each club—as well as the Arccos app. 

Previously, golfers needed to attach the Link to the belt of their lead leg to have shot data captured on the course without their phone. That usually meant golfers had to carry a phone or at least make sure it was within close range. This latest update takes care of that issue, allowing players to do whatever they want with their phone. 

The other improvement is providing Arccos users with better charging capabilities so golfers don’t have to charge as frequently. You can now play about three rounds of golf on a single charge. 

“Our product vision is to continuously remove friction from on-course data capture and Link Pro is a giant step in that direction for amateurs and elite pros alike,” said Dave LeDonne, Arccos Vice-President of Product. “Our members asked to be able to use it in-pocket and not have to remember to charge the device. We listened and innovated. 

“It’s a major technical breakthrough by our in-house hardware team. When you add all the other benefits, the result is a device that’s precise, less intrusive, easier to use and always ready for your next round.”

Arccos Link Pro

Here is a breakdown of the new features: 

  • Works in Pocket: Automatically tracks shots in-pocket without needing to carry a phone 
  • Wireless Charging Case: Up to 12 rounds on a single charge. The case is quickly rechargeable and about the size of an average wallet. 
  • Enhanced GPS: A new GPS chip ensures quicker satellite lock at start of each round, enhancing data accuracy on the course. 
  • Multi-Mic Configuration: Highly accurate shot detection while the device remains in a player’s front pocket
  • Pin Set Button: A dedicated button with click feedback allows users to accurately mark the hole location while Link Pro is in pocket. 

Link Pro has been deemed permissible for use under the Rules of Golf. Arccos, which has built the largest on-course dataset in golf, is the only shot-tracking platform other than ShotLink approved for use on the PGA Tour. 

The new Link Pro (MSRP $224.99) is now available at retail

      Do you still need the club smart sensors?

      Seems overly expensive for what it is. Compared to a nice set of wireless earbuds, this is 2-4x the cost and it’s just a wireless mic (no speakers or noise cancelation like a nice pair of earbuds). Should be like 50-100$ at most.

      I agree, pretty expensive for a bit more convenience and maybe a little more accuracy. No independent reviews on performance yet. I am a little leary on the new products as the Smoke when it came out was useless. Tried two, traded it in for a Green after I lost my original Green gen 2. Pus, current owners have NO trade in path. Kind of a ” too bad suckers…”. Beta analysis tool has had no promised upgrades for last two years. Seems like a greed grab, maximize profits no real improvement for users. Competition is hurting the margins I speculate. BTW, using a lanyard is the only way you make sure you don’t lose it.

      Will the new Link Pro have a clip for attaching to a belt, rear pocket, etc. I get that it has all those great new features, but carrying it in your pocket instead of being able to clip it seems to be a step backwards with regards to convenience. Thanks…

      WYBob, that is until you lose it attached to your belt. It used to be attached to the left side, on your left hip if you were a righty. That area on the belt gets bumped alot, in and out of a cart, looking for your partners ball in the woods, stepping in an out of a sand trap. Contrary to what the manufacturer says locating it once lost, the GPS gets you in about a 45 foot diameter area of when it last pinged to find it. If it works in the pocket, thats better. BTW it is light weight and not much bigger than a pack of matches.

      Thanks for the reply and perspective. I have a previous version of Link with the clip and never had it detach or get lost while playing. I guess I’ve been lucky so far. Personally I don’t like things in my pockets when I play- I just keep 2 tees, and a small divot repair tool with a ball mark in my front pockets. I guess that’s just a carry over from other competitive sports I play where the shorts don’t have pockets. I’ll probably just utilizing an Apple Watch that frankly is not much more expensive than the new Link Pro.

      Actually really excited to use this. Old link seemed hit or miss sometimes, hopefully this is a significant improvement.
