SkyGolf, maker of the popular SkyCaddie rangefinder in Golf, has launched the SkyCaddie AIRE II, a light, compact device loaded features and is ready-to-play with more than 35,000 preloaded courses and no annual fees required.
Using golf’s only ground-corrected precision course maps, SkyGolf says the SkyCaddie AIRE II provides dynamic, accurate distances to the front, center and back of the green with large, easy-to-read numbers. It also provides TrueGround fairway targets and layup targets in to the green with no membership required.
SkyGolf says the AIRE II features “intelligent automation,’’ which means that it automatically recognizes the course you are playing, advances to the next hole automatically, and provides automatic distance information without having to press any buttons. Other features include a digital scorecard function which stores up to 20 rounds, a shot distance measurement function, fitness functions including odometer, calorie counter and distance tracker, plus watch functions including a pace-of-play timer and stopwatch.
With the AIRE II, SkyGolf says golfers have the option to upgrade to a nominally-priced SkyGolf Membership plan to access SkyCaddie’s advanced course management features including IntelliGreen Technology that displays the exact shape of the green from your angle of approach, plus adjustable pin targeting that gives precise distances to the hole.
The upgrade also adds SkyCaddie’s full TrueGround Target List for each course with up to 40 points to hazards, bunkers, water, carries and layups per hole. In addition, upgraded members can sync their AIRE II with the SkyGolf 360 Mobile App that allows golfers to upload scores and stats to SkyGolf’s online community for comprehensive post-round analysis.
The water-resistant AIRE II (suggested retail price $199.95) can be clipped to a belt or a golf cart or can hang from your golf bag. Its rechargeable lithium battery powers the device for up to 10 hours between charges.
