Some users complained about the fact that the data is a bit too difficult to interpret, and therefore, this can have a negative impact on the game, but as mentioned earlier, it is something that only fewer users mentioned. The high price is also another inconvenient which some players are not happy about. However, it has so many features, that is really worth the money.

Status LEDs Meaning
The M-Tracer analyzer features status LEDs that have different meanings, announcing you about certain events. For you to understand these LEDs, you must know what they stand for. When the blue LED turns on for one second and then flashes every two seconds, it means that the device is turning on. If the blue LED flashes two times every two seconds, it means that the device is communicating with the app, transmitting the data that it has recorded. If the blue LED turn on and then off, it means that the device is turning off. If the red LED flashes once every 5 seconds or so, it means that the device is running out of battery. If the blue and red LEDs flash alternately, it indicates the pairing mode. When the red LED flashes every second, it means that an error has occurred. Last but not least, when the red LED turns on for 5 seconds and it turns off for less than a second, after which it repeats the same action, it means that there is a hardware error.
When we first saw the Epson M-Tracer, we were eager to see how it will yield, considering that it has been designed by a reliable manufacturer in the field. We were not disappointed at all, in fact, we were impressed with its accuracy. The high price that almost doubles the price of the majority of the swing analyzers could be considered a drawback and limit the list of users but it is a match for the performance shown on the course. It is compact and lightweight, being almost impossible to notice while playing. Still, it can record a bunch of data with an incredible accuracy and it then sends it to your smartphone so you can record it and get a clearer view of your progress. Bottom line, this swing analyzer is worth every penny and you should definitely consider it if you want to boost your golf skills.
