GolfBuddy Introduces BB5, WT5, LR5 and LR5S devices
Orlando, FL January 20, 2015 – GolfBuddy continues to lead the GPS & Laser Rangefinder industry with the launch of four bold, colorful and innovative devices here at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show. Each new device combines innovation, fashion and function to greatly improve any player’s game. With the addition of new color options and a variety of advanced features, these GolfBuddy units are set to become the latest “must-have” gadgets, both on and off the course.
“GolfBuddy has a reputation for delivering advanced and accessible products for golfers of all ages and ability levels,” said Harry Jung, president of GolfBuddy. “Our new wave of products includes feature-rich GPS wearables and laser devices. At this year’s PGA Merchandise Show, we are introducing a family of devices that are both technologically advanced and provide the fashionable and functional features that today’s golfers look for.”
The GolfBuddy BB5 – the world’s first golf GPS band – combines innovative features and a sleek and lightweight design, providing golfers with everything they need in a GPS device. Both comfortable and fashionable, this lifestyle inspired band includes a time mode, play mode and pedometer capabilities. The GolfBuddy BB5 boasts incredible visibility outdoors, thanks to its LED display. This dynamic, modern device comes pre-loaded with more than 37,000+ courses worldwide and displays the distance to the front, center and back of the green. With a 13-hour battery life in golf mode and 20 days in regular watch mode, this device is an ideal course companion that can also be worn all day, every day. Additional color band options include: 3-pack of red, navy and orange or 3-pack of blue, pink and green.
The WT5 carries a design that is rugged and durable. The existing model has been updated and now features new color schemes, including a white/orange model and a black/blue model. The GolfBuddy WT5 offers all of the capabilities to prior model including full target and hazard information, Dynamic Green View and pin placement – but on a bold and colorful unit. Its digital scorecard can be used on any of the 37,000+ pre-loaded world courses, with storage for up to 40,000 courses. Automatic hole and course recognition, coupled with the WT5’s time, date and stopwatch functions, make this dynamic device one that can be worn every day. Complete with a rechargeable battery, the WT5 provides an impressive 8 hours of battery life in full GPS mode and 35 days in watch mode. Waterproof and durable enough to withstand a heavy rainstorm, the WT5 seamlessly bonds state of the art technology with great design, resulting in unrivaled wearability for even the most demanding of golfers.
Sturdy, steady and easy to hold, the GolfBuddy LR5 is GolfBuddy’s first Laser Rangefinder. Providing golfers with ergonomic precision and confidence in their game, the LR5 provides multiple distance readings with three scan modes: normal, scan and pin mode. The LR5 is accurate to the yard and features a totally waterproof, ergonomic body design. The compact and easy-to-use GolfBuddy LR5 automatically shuts off after 10 seconds when left unattended. The portable LR5 comes with an included travel case and also offers an adjustable eyepiece as well as a setting that allows the user to access the “last used” settings.
In addition to the LR5, GolfBuddy is also introducing another member to the Laser family, the LR5S. This device boasts all of the same capabilities as the LR5 with the added benefit of a slope feature. The slope edition of GolfBuddy’s LR5 takes it one step further by providing elevation adjusted distances to the hole. Instead of a straight line distance to a target, this device will instantly calculate what the uphill or downhill position means in terms of yards. Whether mapping out courses in practice rounds or simply improving your overall game, the LR5S will provide golfers with the ability to accurately learn the course before ever teeing off.
As with all GolfBuddy GPS products, each of the new devices are 100% fee-free with no annual subscriptions or course download charges required after purchase.
GolfBuddy is based in La Palma, Ca, with product development and course data management centers in South Korea, one of the world’s leading suppliers of high-quality electronic products.
