How do you merge two of dad’s passions, tech and golf, into one gift? With the Epson’s Golf Swing Analyzer, of course! The swing analyzer is a tiny unit that snaps onto a club’s shaft and captures your swing at 1,000 samples per second and relays that data to your smartphone via Bluetooth. Dad gets the best of both worlds by practicing his swing and getting instantaneous feedback and visuals to improve his game. He can easily review his swing from various angles, track clubhead speed, and shaft rotation, among many additional data points. Help dad advance his game with this little gadget that packs quite the punch.
Bonus item: if your dad spends a lot of time managing his social media presence, give him the gift of Pagemodo! Posting across platforms has never been easier and he’ll appreciate your support of his social media efforts.
