Bushnell Golf, No 1 in electronic measuring devices, unveiled the next generation of distance-made-simple golf products with the introduction of the Excel Golf GPS watch. Bushnell’s next generation of the GPS watch will integrate Bluetooth technology to work seamlessly with the Bushnell Golf App.
The Excel, Bushnell’s most advanced GPS watch, has been redesigned to meet the evolving needs of golfers wanting wrist-mounted devices, and comes pre-loaded with more than 35 000 courses.
In addition, it’s equipped with Bluetooth capabilities, allowing the golfer to use the Bushnell Golf App to get course updates without needing to sync with a computer to receive call, messaging and calendar notifications. The Excel is an easy-to-use wrist-worn GPS rangefinder with instant yardage measurements in a simple, fashion-forward design and with no membership fees.
‘We are excited about new technologies within the Excel and introduction of the Bushnell Golf App,’ said Derek Schuman, Marketing Manager at Bushnell Golf. ‘With the ever-changing needs in wearable technology, we created our most advanced, user-friendly GPS watch, providing golfers the ability to enhance their game at an affordable price.’
The Excel claims industry-leading battery life – lasting three-plus rounds before needing a charge. Additional features include a full frontal optical mounted color display with auto brightness adjustment, pedometer, odometer and the ability to get up to four hazard distances per hole.
