Swing Caddie SC4
The way you get to see and analyze your swing with the new 2023 SC4 is game-changing at this price range.
It has simulator app integration for both iOS and Android.
In simulator mode, the SC4 connects with the included MySwingCaddie app, providing a complete virtual display along with metrics and stats.
The Mevo+ portable launch monitor lets you automatically record and sync videos from multiple cameras for instant review on your iOS devices.
You can record and clip videos of every shot on your mobile device and overlay your selected data parameters. Connect up to three mobile devices plus your FlightScope Mevo+ internal camera for the ultimate video experience.
With the free FS Golf app for iOS and Android, you get data margins and instant feedback, customizable trajectory view and data blocks, and data and video combined.
The FS Golf for PC (free with the 2023 Mevo+, $99 to upgrade to older model) gives you complete customization with up to four views at a time on your screen and a table of your data with averages.
When you add on the Mevo+ Pro Package, it's just bonkers ... You get a ton of additional data (for your short game too), plus D-Plane data.
And now, when you have the Pro Package, you can add on the Face Impact Location software upgrade ($499), which allows you to view the precise location of impact for every club and compare it to the data for that shot. Face Impact Location also adds two additional data parameters: lateral impact and vertical impact.
The SkyTrak launch monitor comes with its basic software, the SkyTrak practice range. With this you will get a basic range simulator experience, where you get feedback overlaid on video of your shot.
Next they offer the Game Improvement package for an annual fee. This adds bag mapping, skills assessment, practice randomizer, wedge matrix, shot optimizer, and shot history.
With their Play and Improve subscription, you'll get: skills assessment, bag mapping, practice randomizer, wedge matrix, shot optimizer, shot history, WGT by TOPGOLF.
Bushnell Launch Pro
The Launch Pro is the only golf launch monitor in this comparison that has a display on the unit. Out of the box, this is where you see your data without the need of software, iPad, or computer.
As of 2023, the Bushnell Launch Pro is available for purchase at two different price points with two different configurations. You can purchase the Ball Data Only Launch Pro for $1,999.99 or the Ball & Club Data Launch Pro for $3,499.99.
To get more data and visualization on either Launch Pro data version, you will need to purchase the Gold software package for $499/year. The data visualization you can get from this (like the Launch Pro itself) is a whole other beast. You will have access to FSX Play, FSX2020, 25 top courses, save sessions, create players, record unlimited unique clubs, track rounds, online game play and contests, 3D ball flight, and more! You will also have FSX Pro for iPad. Foresight Sports has added new third-party simulation partners which work with the Bushnell Launch Pro as well. These include Awesome Golf, GSPro, Creative Golf—and E6 Connect is in the works. You can also add on Swing Catalyst for some of the best video analysis of your swing!
Keep in mind, you have to have a tricked-out gaming computer to run FSX 2020/Play and any of the new third-party simulation software. Check out our Bushnell Launch Pro Update to see all the changes to price, data, and software.
