Garmin Tru Swing Golf Swing Sensor
The Garmin Tru Swing Golf Swing Sensor measures the mechanics affecting ball height and shot results. Small, light and easy to use, TruSwing integrates with Garmin Approach golf devices plus smartphones and tablets, via Garmin Connect mobile app. With 3-D animations and side-by-side swing comparisons, TruSwing provides users with at-a-glance data, including swing tempo, speed, club-path measurements, critical club angles and more, to improve swing consistency and form both on the course and the range. A simple clamp allows users to quickly and securely attach TruSwing sensor below the grip on any club. Additional wrist-path data and animations available with Approach S6 golf watch.
Swing Tempo: The ratio of the backswing to downswing time; based on studies of professional golfers, a 3 to 1 ratio, or 3.0, is the idea swing tempo. You can achieve the ideal 3.0 tempo regardless of your own swing timings. For example, 0.7/0.23 sec. or 1.2 sec./0.4 sec. both equal a 3.0 tempo.
Swing Speed: The speed of the club head when it strikes the ball.
Club Path: A measurement of your club’s horizontal motion in relationship to the target line when viewed from overhead as it strikes the ball. The swing path determines whether you strike the ball “in-to-out” or “out-to-in.”
Face-To-Target: The angle you open or close the clubface, compared to the target line at the point of impact.
Dynamic Loft: The loft angle of the selected club plus or minus the club offset created by the shaft lean and clubface angle at the point of impact.
Shaft Angle: The angle between the shaft and the ground as measured from the center of the shaft. This measurement is taken at address and again at impact. Ideally, you want the shaft angle at impact to be close to the same angle it was at address.
Shaft Lean: The forward or backward angle you are holding the club when hitting the ball, measured from a 90-degree vertical angle. This measurement is taken at address and again at impact. The amount of shaft lean at impact affects the loft angle of the club.
