  • How do I not waste battery life / have it know that I am on the driving / practice range? Does it know by gps and simply not record or use the battery life?

    ClubHub uses battery whenever the club is "in-play." This is true whether you are on the practice range, on a course, or even in your home. The club is in play when the head is down and the handle up and the club is moving. If the club is leaned against a wall or another surface, it will turn off in approximately 30 seconds. A new battery will provide approximately 16 hours of in-play time. The ClubHub app will push swing data to the cloud. For an 18 hole round that is approximately 300K of data. So if you play 10 times per month, you will use about 3 Mbytes of data.
