Overview: The Garmin TruSwing is a golf swing sensor that attaches to
the shaft of your club, and measures different metrics of your swing for later
analysis and training. The mechanics of your golf swing can affect the ball
flight and your shot results. TruSwing can be paired with select Garmin Approach
devices, or a compatible smartphone or tablet, for instant swing data. Data can
also be uploaded to the Garmin Connect online golf community for full analysis.
TruSwing comes with a Micro USB cable and a cloth storage pouch.
Compatible Devices: TruSwing is compatible with Garmin Approach S20,
S4, S5, S6, and X40 watches, as well as Approach G7 and G8 handheld devices. It
is also compatible with most Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-enabled smartphones and
and later or
4.0 and up.
Garmin Connect: After a round of golf or practice session using
TruSwing, you can view and analyze your swing data on the Garmin Connect app on
your mobile device or your computer. All of your swings are stored in the app,
and are organized into sessions by date. Overall cumulative stats and stats per
session will be calculated and displayed. Cumulative stats will also be broken
down by club. Individual swings can be analyzed with 3D animation. You can also
over lay one swing over another.
Swing Metrics: TruSwing provides data on the following swing metrics:
- Swing Tempo: The ratio of the backswing to downswing time.
- Swing Speed: The speed of the club head when it hits the ball.
- Club Path Coordinates: Used to create 3D graphical
representations of the club path.
- Club Path: A measurement of your club's horizontal motion
relative to the target line when viewed from overhead as it hits the ball.
- Face to Target: The angle of your club face in relation to the
- Dynamic Loft: The loft angle of the selected club plus or minus
any loft offset created by shaft lean and club face angle when the ball is
- Shaft Angle: The angle between the shaft and the ground as
measured from the center of the shaft. Measured at address and at impact.
- Shaft Lean: The forward or backward angle at which you are
holding the club when hitting the ball, measured from a 90°
vertical angle. Measured at address and at impact.
- Wrist-Path Coordinates: When using TruSwing with an
Approach S6, additional wrist-path data is recorded that is displayed in
the 3D animation to show where your forearm is throughout the swing. It
gives you a better picture of club lag, when the club head trails behind the
hands throughout the downswing.
Mounting: The TruSwing sensor attaches to the shaft of the golf club
below the grip. A guide line on the sensor helps you to properly line up the
unit--parallel to the grooves on the club face. The sensor's clamp wraps around
the shaft and is tightened by a thumbscrew to keep the device in place.
Water Resistance: The device can withstand incidental exposure to
water of up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.
Power Requirements: The TruSwing golf swing sensor is powered by a
built-in rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery. A fully-charged battery gives you up
to 12 hours of battery life. It charges via a Micro USB connection using the
