Bushnell launch GPS watch
Last updated: 20th November 2012
Bushnell, who initially made their name with binoculars, have added a new Neo+ GPS watch to their highly regarded series of range-finders
Priced at just £159, the new watch has clearly been launched to cater for the growing demand in the golfing world for smaller GPS instruments that can be worn on the wrist.
Lightweight and easy to use, though considerably smaller than the golfcart-mounted or hand-held GPS products on the market, the Neo+ GPS watch comes pre-loaded with 25,000 courses from all around the world
Bushnell point out that the watch gives golfers accurate yardages to the front, middle and back of the green in play and can be used for at least three rounds (14 hours) before needing to be recharged
"Following the original Neo+ GPS, we wanted to provide consumers with another exceptional GPS option that would provide extra benefits at an affordable cost," Terry Mears, the Product Director at Bushnell told Today's Golfer this week.
"While we may be known for our dominant laser range finders, at Bushnell we pride ourselves on producing industry-leading products that will give golfers the ability to enhance their game. We know that the new Neo+ watch will be extremely popular," he added.
Bushnell are launching their new watch at just the right time. It should make a great Christmas present for golf's weekend warriors who mostly don't have the assistance of clued up caddies and detailed yardage books.
