Game Tracking System
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I have been an entrepreneur for the past 15 years, with a background in software engineering as well as in the field of behavioral psychology. I was fascinated by the mental side of performance (as it relates to sport) and with my dual background, developed the idea for a sports-speciic wearable-tech and software that helps you improve your game by understanding your game – and the psychology that goes with it.
What makes your product special?
GAME GOLF created a new category that did not previously exist; wearable technology as it relates to sport had really been confined to the general fitness space. We launched in 2014 and since then, have continued to evolve the product and the features/benefits that go with it so we are always innovating and leading the golf wearable category. Specifically, GAME GOLF integrates seamlessly with a golfer's game; it connects directly to your smartphone and visualizes every shot you take. It is also the only wearable legal for use in tournament play. You will continue to see new technology and innovative thinking as it relates to GAME GOLF on an ongoing basis.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
The challenge of building a consumer product that appeals to all golfers and that can truly help them improve by understanding their game, and at the same time be easy to use, has been a fantastic design challenge. The entire GAME GOLF team is energized every day to meet this challenge and create the most innovative product on the market.
