Crave giveaway: SwingTip golf gizmo for analyzing your game
Aiming to be the next Jack Nicklaus? This week's prize combines a wireless motion sensor and an app to provide real-time visual and statistical swing data -- and hopefully make your game better.
Congrats to Allan N. of Port Richey, Fla., for winning an Incipio Atlas case for the iPhone 5 in last week's giveaway. This week's prize is coming out swinging! We're giving away a mobile golf analysis tool to help you improve your game.
The SwingTip from Mobiplex is a tiny 3D Bluetooth motion sensor device that clips on to your golf club and transmits real-time swing analysis to your smartphone or tablet. The sensor pairs with a free mobile app for Android or iOS that reproduces a 3D photo-like animation of your swing along with performance metrics like swing speed, tempo, and path, and where the ball's hitting your club.
The apps also let you sync your data to the cloud, where you can view performance trend reports on your personal MySwingTip Web page.
With Father's Day coming up, the SwingTip could fit golf-loving dads to a tee (see what I did there?). Normally, it would run you $129.99, but here's your chance to score one for free. How? Well, there are a few rules, so please read carefully.
