2. Hardware & Technology

How does mevo compare to other FlightScope models?

Mevo is a 3D Doppler radar unlike our other models which are 3D Doppler tracking radars with phased array technology, tracking the club through impact and the ball until it lands. Mevo has limited capabilities and available data parameters compared to other FlightScope models, but it is the most accurate of its kind.

It is however unique, as it is a multi-sport radar which is synchronized with your iPhone/Android phone/Tablet (coming soon) to automatically record and clip video of your swing with data overlay. FlightScope mevo was developed as a consumer product for athletes to practice with a purpose, but to still receive lessons/tips from their instructor using the higher end FlightScope model.

Does mevo have a built-in camera? How is the video recorded?

No, mevo does not have a built-in camera. The video is taken with the camera on your iPhone/Android phone, or tablet (coming soon) in the mevo app. The mevo radar synchronizes the action video clip, which is recorded on your phone/tablet automatically. The result is an action video clip of your swing with your captured data overlaid.
