Bushnell Neo Ion Rangefinder Watch

What’s it all About? 

Whilst they are more widely known for their lasers, Bushnell is also getting a name for lightweight and competitively priced GPS devices and the latest to hit your wrist is the Neo iON watch. 

The sporty look in a choice of three colors makes it one of the better-looking GPS watches in the market and one that does not look out of place off the course either. 

With the added options of a pedometer to measure steps and an odometer to measure distance.

However, it is golf that the Neo iON has been designed for, and for these types of watches, it is about average depth and lightweight at just 51 grams. 

The Neo iON is charged in an hour or two using a supplied USB cable that has its own connector that snaps into place very easily. 

What More? 

The longer battery life of three rounds will please the more unorganized golfer who forgets to recharge their device after playing.

Out of the box, it comes fully charged and there’s no need to sync it up to your computer.

It will automatically move holes as you do and on the odd occasion it doesn’t, one push of a button will set you right.
