GolfBuddy have introduced two new models of GPS watch for 2017, including its most advanced ever model, The WTX.

The WTX delivers all the functionality usually associated with a handheld unit in a stylish, compact GPS watch.  With an integrated fast touchscreen interface and weighing just 62g, the WTX not only gives distances to the front, centre and back of the greens and hazards but also complete hole layouts with the golfer’s current position plus dynamic green view that adjusts distances in relation to the angle of approach.

WTX also provides shot distance measurement and pin position selection for the most accurate distances possible. It also features extra ‘skins’ giving stylish watch options when not in GPS mode.
Smart phone compatibility brings extra levels of function, with on course updates available for download automatically via Bluetooth, and fitness watch features such as odometer and GPS tracking. At just €249 WTX surpasses all expectations on price as well as function making this an incredibly attractive proposition. The smart watch also comes with an activity tracker via a pedometer and can be synced up to your smartphone via an app to enable notifications direct to the device.

The GolfBuddy WT6 model is aimed at golfers looking for simple, accurate GPS with yardages at a glance. Easy to use with press-and-hold buttons the WT6 clearly displays yardages to the front/centre/back as well as dual green distance display and distance to hazards.

With a 9-hour battery cycle in golf mode and up to 2 months in standard watch mode, the WT6 also benefits from Dynamic Green View for improved accuracy and at just €189 retail delivers everything that a golfer needs on the course at a superb price.
Both watches come fully pre-loaded with 38,000 worldwide courses that, like for all GolfBuddy products, are updated for free.
