We've always liked the GolfBuddy Voice series as an innovative twist to the Distance Measuring Device Market.
The latest addition is the GolfBuddy Voice X, packed with all the standard DMD features, with the added X factor unique to the Voice range.
The key feature of these devices is the audio option that speaks the distances, ideal for golfers who prefer not to have to look down at the screen for the key information. The sleek design means that the unit can be discretely clipped onto a belt, pocket or hat, like a virtual caddie providing distances on demand.
This information is driven by GolfBuddy’s renowned Dynamic Green View technology that gives yardages from your angle of attack, be that straight down the middle or from the next fairway across, with figures for the front, centre, back and hazards all available.
The Voice X has information for over 40,000 courses worldwide and you simply switch it on and let it find your location and the course you are about to take on. If by a slim chance you’re playing a course that needs an update, the Automatic Course Update (ACU) function kicks in via an app on your smart phone and the latest data for the most accurate distances is uploaded straight to your device.
There is a also a shot measurement function allowing you to accurately gauge distance with every club as well as step counting and a watch function. The 10hr battery life in GPS mode gives means you won't be caught short on the course allowing you to fully concentrate on your game.
