"If you know a die-hard golf fan like Justin Timberlake, then he's gotta have SwingTip. Clamp SwingTip onto on your club, and when you swing, it analyzes your movement and sends the information to an accompanying app. Then, you can track your stats and get tutorials to improve your game."

John Strege wrote about it in more detail last September in Golf Digest, but it's still interesting to see the potentially cool SwingTip data collector get a launch at the Consumer Electronics Show and backed by $4.4 million in financing.
"Overall design of SwingTIP is superior… Best bracketing system… In the hands of a visual type person this is a particularly effective device… Information it processes and provides borders on mind boggling."
"I really enjoyed the SwingTIP. Overall this is a great product for anyone that constantly desires to improve their swing. Along with the immediate data presented through the smart-device app, you can also upload all your swing data to their website for graphical analysis and comparison. This is a huge feature that alone is worth the price ($129.00)"
SwingTIP delivers the ultimate interactive learning experience. Simply put, I didn’t know what “taking the club on an outside plane” felt like. SwingTIP not only showed me what my swing path was, but it also showed me when my swing path was corrected. Finally, and possibly most helpful, SwingTIP’s smartphone app includes videos and text narratives on how to correct your swing flaws after the device records your last swing. So not only do you now know what is going wrong in your swing, but you also receive advice on how to correct it."
