What is PRO/Track mode?

The following article explains PRO mode for V2 and Track mode for V3. Please click on the device you have below to skip to the relevant section -

1. V3

2. V2

 

V3

Opting to play in Track mode engages the performance tracking function of your V3 without showing distances on the watch screen. All of your data will be collected in the background, with each club and its location being automatically identified for every shot you take. This mode is ideal when playing in competitions where the use of a GPS/rangefinder is not permitted. You can still gather data to learn from your round but without receiving on-course information.

Setting up for Track mode

1) First, please ensure you have inserted your tags into your clubs. Further instructions on how to set up your tags can be found here.

2) The main screen on the V3 has the play symbol as the first menu selection, therefore to proceed to selecting a game mode press the top right button to confirm you are going to start playing.

Once Track mode has been selected, the watch will begin to prepare your round by establishing your location. A locating GPS screen will appear whilst the watch is trying to establish your location.

Using PinCollect

 

To provide accurate proximity to the hole and putting statistics we ask that you press a button to locate the pin for us, by pressing a button with the watch over the hole we can accurately establish where the pin was located for that round.

We do ask that you press the number button that corresponds to the amount of times you used your putter on that hole (on or off the green). For example, if your ball is on the fringe and you take one stroke with your putter, then take one stroke with your putter on the green to finish the hole this should be pressed as 2 putts. When you upload your round our software separates putts on the green in to your Putting stats and putts off the green in to Short Game to give you accurate data.

Once you have finished putting on a green, please press the top left button to access in-play option menu. Use the bottom left and right buttons to scroll to PinCollect. Press the top right button to confirm.
