Are you contemplating the creation of your indoor golf haven, complete with the innovative Uneekor EYE XO2 launch monitor?

As winter approaches, golf enthusiasts worldwide face the inevitable hiatus from the course, stowing away their cherished clubs until the arrival of spring’s warmth.

It’s a somber period for golfers as drives linger unstruck, putts patiently wait to find the hole, and the thrill of shaving shots off handicaps remains suspended until the thaw. The dormant months test the patience of avid golfers, leaving them yearning for the day they can resume their passionate pursuit of the perfect swing.

If the winter golf hiatus has left you craving the feel of a club in your hands and the sound of a well-struck shot, perhaps you’re considering constructing your indoor golf simulator with the help of the Uneeker Eye XO2.

That is why we have put together this comprehensive review, so you can get all of the information you need in one place about the Uneeker Eye XO2. There are a lot of great monitors these days on the market and it can be overwhelming to sort through them all yourself.

In this comprehensive review, we will talk about key technologies wrapped inside the XO2, the process of installing the XO2, and finally the user experience and available software packages.

Technology And Features

The technology and ease of use included with the XO2 is truly remarkable. For the person who wants a true dream simulator, this is the top of the line option.

One thing that is a minor annoyance about receiving club data is that you have to place the provided stickers on your clubs. Other monitors on the market such as the Mevo + do not require this.

Setup

In contrast to alternative monitors designed for versatility between indoor simulators and outdoor play, the XO2 is intended for a one-time mounting, without subsequent relocation.

Our experience revealed that the outlined mounting process, detailed below, is straightforward but involves a more intricate installation compared to other monitors we have previously reviewed.

Setup: The Comprehensive Guide

Given that the XO2 is designed for a one-time setup catering to multiple uses, the installation process of the Uneekor EYE XO2 is pivotal in guaranteeing peak performance and precise data readings. Below are the essential steps required for its proper installation that you will have to go through.

1. Mounting the Bracket:

  • Begin by slightly loosening the black screws holding the sensor to the bracket, and then carefully remove the sensor.
  • Position your ladder under the designated mounting location, ensuring that the front of the sensor will be 3.5 feet from the tee position. This measurement is essential to future club and ball readings.
  • Climb the ladder and place the bracket flat against the ceiling, with the hinges facing down towards the ground. Ensure that the EYE XO logo is on the side of the hitting zone, and the longer side with the hinges is closer to the screen.
  • Secure the bracket by screwing in the silver 32mm screws into the ten locations on the bracket.

2. Installing the Sensor:

  • Confirm that the six screws already inserted into the bar are about halfway down.
  • Slide the bar with the screws through the bracket, ensuring the screws are secured in the hinge slots. Once the sensor is in place, tighten all screws securely.
  • Optionally adjust the tilt of the sensor by swapping the regular 15mm screws already in the sensor with the high or low screws provided.

Note: The process of mounting the bracket and sensor is very easy, only taking 15-20 minutes.

3. Establishing Connections Between the Eye XO2 and PC

  • Connect the Ethernet LAN cable from the sensor to your PC through the Ethernet port.
  • Connect the power cable, power adapter, and power connector. Flip the red switch on the sensor and verify that the power is on by observing the bright red light on the sensor’s switch.
  • Pair the EYE XO2 with your PC by setting the static IP addresses according to Uneekor’s Network Setup Guide.

Note:The “Network Setup Guide” is included is helpful with pairing the IP addresses of the sensor and PC.

4. Software Installation:

  • Install Uneekor’s View, Refine, or Refine+ software based on your purchase. The installation code will be provided via email, and you should follow the steps outlined in the installation guide.
  • The Uneekor Launcher software is recommended for a convenient all-in-one hub, allowing you to go through an interactive installation wizard for the EYE XO2, access the View software, connect to third-party solutions, and manage all other devices.

Additional Notes

  • Ensure that your PC meets the minimum specifications, including Intel i5 8400, 8GB RAM, GeForce GTX 1060, and Windows 10 (64-bit, version 1803). AMD users need at least a 3rd-gen Ryzen and AMD Ryzen 3600.
  • Verify that your hitting mat is level for accurate shot data.
  • Calibrate the EYE XO2 before the first use using the provided calibration tool.
  • Apply the club stickers (included) to the club head to measure club data. The location of the application depends on the design of the club head.

The User Experience And Software Integration
