SkyCaddie launches Aire II

SkyCaddie has launched the Aire II, a significant upgrade to SkyCaddie’s entry-level no-fees GPS distance measuring device for golfers. The ready-to-play Aire II now shows dynamic distances which reflect angle of approach, while offering pre-loaded front-centre-back green distance information for 35,000 SkyCaddie worldwide golf course maps, all created and surveyed on foot. Quarterly updates ensure that AIRE II customers have information on the latest course changes.

Easy-to-read numbers fill the brightly-lit 1.8 inch sunlight-readable greyscale display, and intelligent automation means that Aire II recognises not only which course is being played, but also which hole, without any button-pressing. Other features include a digital scorecard function capable of storing up to 20 rounds; shot distance measurement function; fitness functions such as odometer, calorie counter and distance tracker; plus watch functions including pace-of-play timer and stopwatch.

Aire II also adds upgradeability for the first time, with SkyCaddie members now able to enhance their Aire II with access to SkyCaddie’s revolutionary IntelliGreen feature, which provides actual green shape from angle of approach, plus adjustable pin targeting giving precise distances to the hole.

The Aire II can be clipped to a belt or a golf trolley, or can hang from a golf bag. Its rechargeable lithium battery powers the device for up to 10 hours between charges.

Jacqui Surman, SkyCaddie vice president of International Sales and Marketing stated, “The Aire II contains all we know about golf course distance measurement in a tiny, ultra-light package. It condenses a quarter of a million hours of exclusive SkyCaddie course mapping into a truly pocket-sized rechargeable unit with great battery life and the simplest possible display. If all you want is a quick glance at golf’s most accurate GPS numbers, the Aire II is perfect for you.” Priced at £129.95 with more details: www.skycaddie.co.uk
