While SHOTMAXX-2 utilizes the same watch housing and display as its predecessor, that is where the replication ends. The new SHOTMAXX-2 now has a larger strap add-on, housing a bigger, much louder and more robust speaker, which delivers a truly surprising volume from such a small package. The battery capacity has been more than doubled, now offering enough battery life for several days of continuous use on the range. The battery readout system has been upgrade too, and shows a true and accurate battery level, based on real voltage measurements, and not a usage calculation. The unique shot detection, either by microphone or accelerometer sensors has been improved further, refining the shot-detection algorithms to ensure that every type of range, weapon and distance from shooter are well supported. The SHOTMAXX’s extreme sensitivity is retained, allowing the SHOTMAXX-2 to function as the best Airsoft timer on the market as well! Shoot on a busy range while wearing the SHOTMAXX-2 running in Accelerometer mode, and you will be able to pick up your shots ONLY. Other shots fired close by will not be recorded. The Spy mode feature is retained, giving the option to activate the Timer off your first-hand motion at the start of a stage, and record all your split times as you shoot through. You can even set delays to compensate for your reaction time to the RO’s beep. There is, though, one feature which has been removed from the SHOTMAXX-2, and that is the Bluetooth capability. We decided not to include it in this model, as it was not a widely-used feature, and freeing up the BT components space allowed additional memory and other improvements.
