If you're looking for a swing analyzer, buy this one.
My device is now in the trash due to a failed battery and cracked plastic housing. I've also had recurring problems with the rubber hinge and plastic cover for the charging port, both of which frequently came loose. Customer Service says the battery cannot be serviced, and can only offer a replacement unit - at a cost higher than is available on Amazon.
This is a great concept when it works - unfortunately the construction is poor and not durable. When I opened the device to investigate the failed battery, I was disappointed at the unprotected and unsealed circuitry covered by the cheap, thin plastic case. No wonder Amazon comments are filled with stories of broken units.
This was a Swingbyte 2 - hopefully the Swingbyte 3 will be better designed and constructed.
Quite a few people have commented on it slipping on the shaft. I have noticed it happening on thin shots but not on fat or flushed one. You will have to realign it and because you won’t be able to get it “exactly” where it was previously, you’re subsequent numbers will be slightly off for comparisons, but well within amateur limits. The instructions that come with the unit are very sparse and the website isn’t that good either. For example, where to you plug it in at to recharge it? Nothing on the website or instructions will tell you and I’m reluctant to start pulling it apart looking for it. It happens to be under the alignment aid, it’s a cap you pull off. That in turn is a problem for me, the cap tends to pop off several times during each session and its attached by a thin piece of plastic. I can easily see a time the plastic wears and breaks, then the alignment aid is lost.
It can be somewhat aggravating trying to get it to sync to your phone while on the range. I never could the first time I tried to use it. I would recommend you practice that at home before going, once you get the hang of it and the steps your phone likes it tends to work ok. Once it’s sync’ed it will record each impact with a ball and will give you a beep letting you know it got it. No beep, check your phone to re-sync it. Sometimes it just quits but not often.
They are very good at replying to questions. I’ve emailed several questions to them, I get the automatic response and then the actual reply within 1 business day.
Do I like it, yes. I like the swing views (face on, overhead and down the line). These are very helpful in adjusting your swing. I haven’t used video with it yet but I can see how that would be helpful as well.
Have had only one problem with a rubber strap failing, but I know it is something they are working on remedying. Customer Support has been the best and they got me back up and running in no time.
