Next generation GPS watch from Bushnell

Bushnell Golf has unveiled the next generation of distance-made-simple golf products, with the introduction of the EXCEL Golf GPS Watch. As well as providing all of the key information the golfer needs, the EXCEL also utilises integrated Bluetooth technology to work with the new Bushnell Golf App.

The device’s Bluetooth capabilities make updating the 35,000+ pre-loaded courses easy, ensuring the golfer always has the most up-to-date and accurate information for every course they are playing. The Bluetooth integration also means the user can receive call alerts, messages and calendar notifications straight to their EXCEL watch.

The Bushnell Golf App also allows the golfer to book tee times, pay, confirm and set tee time notifications all from their smart phone and will mean that, combined with the EXCEL’s Bluetooth capabilities, there is no need to sync the device with a computer for course updates. There is also the option for 3D course flyovers in the app, to give the golfer a birds-eye view of the hole.

“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.”

Also integrated into the watch is a Swing Pro function, giving golfers the chance to monitor their swing speed and tempo, providing them with invaluable information to help improvement when practicing.

The EXCEL Golf GPS Watch will be available from authorised Bushnell stockists in July with a recommended retail price of £199.
