Apple seems to be focusing more on sports and the outdoors these days, but you don’t necessarily need a new Apple Watch to stay active. For example, if you already own an iPhone, you can turn it into a golf coach with a Phigolf swing trainer, on sale now for $199.99 (regularly $279).

Tee off anywhere, anytime

The Phigolf is a compact training tool that lets you sharpen your swing whenever you please, even at night or in the dead of winter. All you need is an iPhone running iOS 9 or newer. The weighted training stick is retractable, allowing you to fit it in your work bag or carry-on easily. And the handle’s sensor charges quickly via USB, offering up to seven hours of battery life. Plus, it comes with a safety lanyard to prevent your club from flying if you lose your grip.

Rated four stars on Amazon with nearly 2,500 reviews, this sensor connects to apps like E6 Connect, WGT Golf and Phigolf’s own practice app via Bluetooth. All you need to do from there is tee off.

The carefully weighted trainer is designed to feel like a real golf club, so you can get in the zone as you practice. As you swing, the Phigolf sensor tracks your motion along nine axes. This makes your swing in the simulation more realistic.

The sensor collects data for you to analyze to improve your game. Over time, you may spot where you most need to improve. And, since all it needs is your iPhone and the sensor, you can fit in a round with friends remotely or practice on a virtual driving range every day.

Save on a Phigolf Premium Swing Trainer Bundle

If you love golf, you know it takes practice to get it right. Keep your swing sharp during the winter or practice in the morning to refine your stroke before you head out to the course.

This Phigolf Premium Swing Trainer Bundle lets you practice anywhere, anytime, for $199.99 (regularly $279).

Prices subject to change.
