As one of the market-leaders in golf GPS technology, any new release from GolfBuddy is certainly worth consideration. This time is no different, as they have announced the release of two new products for 2019, the aim W10 GPS Watch and the Voice 2 GPS.
Wearable golf tech like GPS watches have been steadily on the rise for the past few years, mirroring the growing popularity these products have enjoyed for pursuits such as cycling and running. But plenty of golfers are still keen to have a device which can be just as easily stored in a pocket or on a bag, so the Voice 2 should make those people pretty happy too. It is also one of the easiest-to-use products on the market - it even reads the details out to you!
GolfBuddy aim W10 GPS Watch
This year's new 'aim' series from GolfBuddy stands for Accurate, Innovative and Measurable, three characteristics which are said to be at the heart of all of its latest technology.
GolfBuddy say the aim W10 GPS Watch is their most advanced smart golf GPS watch, and it comes packed with plenty of features. There's a full-colour touch screen, zoom in feature and an in-depth hole view which gives arced distances so you can plan your approach from the tee. Of course, there's also distances to the front, centre and back of the green allowing you to lock into your target, along with distances to hazards so you can hopefully keep those big scores off your card.
For those who like to be extra-precise, there is the option of a green-undulation feature so you can see all the slopes on the putting surfaces, as well as manual pin placement to ensure that your yardage is as accurate as possible. If only our approach shots were too...
You get 13 hours of battery life in GPS mode, enough for 3 rounds of golf, along with automatic course updates via Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity with the GolfBuddy App so that you never miss a notification. All of this available for an RRP of £299.
GolfBuddy Voice 2 GPS
Replacing the previous Voice+ device which has been around for about 6 years now, the new Voice 2 aims to combine advanced technology with ease of use.
It features audio distances to the front, centre and back of the greens, along with a clear visual display so you can be extra sure of your yardages.
The unit is just 4.5cm square making it discreet and portable, and the clip allows it to be attached to a belt, cap, trolley or bag for ultimate versatility, as well as kept in the pocket.
In GPS mode, you get an impressive 14 hours battery life and the device comes pre-loaded with 11 different languages. These features, along with the reasonable £129.99 price point, make this product a good value, simplistic option for most golfers.
