Garmin Approach CT10 Vs Arccos Smart Sensors Comparison Review
Using golf club sensors can do a lot to improve your game and lower your handicap; but it can be hard to decide which ones are right for you.
For however cumbersome they might be, there’s no denying that having a smart sensor on each of your clubs can provide you with data that you wouldn’t have had otherwise. However, there’s also no denying that some sensors are more trouble than they’re worth
Today we are going to be taking a look at a couple of golf club sensor sets that promise ease of use and valuable swing data to see if they really deliver on these claims.
Garmin CT10 Overview
The Garmin CT10’s work just like most other smart sensors do: they attach to the end of your club through the grip and feed data to your connected, compatible Garmin golf watch and onto the Garmin App on your smartphone.
The Garmin Approach CT10 smart sensors are 1.1 inches across and only a half inch thick. So right off the bat, we would say that these won’t encumber your swing at all.
We tested them on the range and through a full course and none of our testers had any complaints about comfortability. So at the very least, we can honestly say that Garmin lives up to the hype it has made about the CT10’s not being a hindrance.
The Garmin Approach CT10 sensors are pretty standard in terms of what kind of stats they keep for you and what kind of data you get. So while they aren’t anything to write home about, they can give you valuable insight into your swing with each club.
For us, the most important benefits of the Garmin Approach CT10 smart sensors was that they do nothing to hinder your swing.
Arccos Smart Sensors Overview
The Arccos Smart Sensors have more robust metrics for the player and offer just a bit more help than the Garmin Approach CT10’s
First of all, anyone reading this should know that for this test we tried out the 3rd generation of the Arccos Smart Sensors.
The Arccos Sensors connect directly to your phone or else the Arccos Link Device, it doesn’t need a smart watch.
The Arccos Smart Sensors were also comfortable to play with but the setup process was a bit more taxing.
There were some issues with lost connections but once we got that dialed in, we were really impressed with the features we had access to. Having the Arccos Smart Sensors on your clubs is sort of like having your own personal caddie.
We enjoyed the more robust golf stats we got with the Arccos Smart Sensors but it would be nice if the connection technology were a bit more reliable.
