Bushnell introduces a wrist-worn rangefinder

May 08, 2012

A growing category in rangefinders is the GPS device resembling a wristwatch. The latest to join the fray is Bushnell, a leading player in the rangefinder market, both GPS and laser (and even a hybrid). Bushnell has introduced the Neo+ Golf GPS Watch.

It comes pre-loaded with 25,000 courses and provides yardages to the front, center and back of greens. It automatically recognizes the course and the hole on which the consumer is playing. It includes a watch and an odometer and has a battery life in GPS mode of more than 14 hours.

The price is $200.

Garmin and Expresso Satellite Navigation also have introduced GPS devices worn on the wrist.
