Improve your swing with rhythm!
An in-ear metronome for golf practice
Designed for the golfer, the StrokeRhythm is an ultra-small metronome that fits in your ear like an earphone. By practicing your swing while listening to the beat directly in your ear, you can stabilize your rhythm and improve your swing. You can also choose from a wide range of tempo and beat settings to find a swing rhythm that's right for you. The jog switch allows smooth tempo adjustment, and a unique mechanism holds the unit securely in your ear.
A wide range of tempo and beat settings to match the rhythm of your swing
The tempo setting range is a generous 30--252 bpm. Typical recommendations are to try a swing tempo of about 70 for men and about 60 for women, but you can experiment with a variety of tempo settings to find the tempo that's right for you. The beat can also be specified in the range of 0--9, so you can choose the beat that's best for you to practice your swing.
Also ideal for jogging and walking
In addition to its usefulness when practicing a musical instrument, the StrokeRhythm can also enhance your exercise. For example, people who walk for the purpose of exercise or weight loss are often advised to walk at least 20 minutes at a regular pace of at least 70 meters per minute; by using the StrokeRhythm you can keep your training pace constant, synchronized to the sound of the metronome. This is a great way to maintain a consistent speed for walking, jogging, race-walking, weight training, or any other exercise.
Comfortably and securely fits a variety of ear shapes
The StrokeRhythm utilizes two distinctive mechanisms to ensure a stable fit in any ear, large or small. The first is an Ear Fitter that extends from below the speaker. Its angle can be finely adjusted by rotating the speaker itself, allowing to fit the various shapes of ear hole. The second is an Ear Clip that opens or closes to fasten on the earlobe. The clip ensures a solid hold that will not be dislodged even by sudden shocks or vigorous movement when in use.
Use the jog switch to set the tempo intuitively
The StrokeRhythm features a jog switch on the side of the body, allowing you to easily change the settings without removing the unit from your ear. Using the jog switch you can select not just the tempo setting, but also the beat, rhythm, and volume. This provides a compact yet highly intuitive method of operation. The power button, mode select button, and an LCD display that shows the tempo and other information are located on the inside of the body.
Extended operating time, and memory backup
In spite of its ultra-small sized body, the StrokeRhythm provides approximately 200 hours of continuous operation using a coin-type lithium battery. The memory backup function remembers the tempo and other settings even when the power is off. The battery can be easily replaced by opening and closing the cover located on the back of the body.
Ear pad and carrying case included
To enhance the fit, the StrokeRhythm includes a well-cushioned sponge ear pad (*). Also included is a carrying case that neatly stores the StrokeRhythm itself, the battery, and the ear pad. You can take this with you for convenient rhythm training anywhere you go.
* If this is lost or damaged, you can use general ear pads (earphone diameter 16 mm).
