First golf GPS designed specifically for female golfers launches

GolfBuddy has announced the launch of the first golf GPS designed specifically for lady golfers. The company’s new LD2 GPS watch brings high fashion to the course with a range of quality style features, including Swarovski crystals and a rich alligator grain leather watch strap.

The combination of a stainless steel crown button and bezel, premium mineral lens and the light sapphire-coloured genuine Swarovski crystals bring a feminine touch to a GPS that is packed with a huge array of features.

Weighing just 1oz and with a neat 1.18″ display screen, the GolfBuddy LD2 boasts a slim, stylish case which sits unobtrusively on the wrist.

Distances to front/centre/back of the green are shown clearly, alongside distances to all hazards on a hole. It’s uncomplicated to use, with GolfBuddy’s Automatic Course/Hole Recognition System immediately picking up which course you’re playing – and even which hole – especially useful for shotgun starts.

GPS tracking and a built-in odometer mean the LD2 can double up as a ‘health band’ while the rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides eight hours’ use in GPS mode and up to one-year in standard watch mode.

It’s waterproof up to 10 meters, shows Time/Date and comes preloaded with over 38,000 courses worldwide, all of which are available free of charge.

Announcing the launch of the LD2, GolfBuddy Global head of Sales and marketing, John Ennis, said: “Research from around the globe told us that while lady golfers like the concept of GPS watches, the current trend for bulkier, sporty styling doesn’t sit well with them on a number of levels.

“Larger watches don’t feel comfortable on their wrists. And the sporty look and feel is regarded by many female golfers as simply too masculine. With the LD2 we have been able to work as a partner with Swarovski and make a GPS watch that looks like it’s straight from a jeweller or fashion boutique – without losing any of the game-changing GolfBuddy GPS technology.”
