Inspired by trends in the wider field of consumer electronics, like large screen smartphones, phablets and 'wearable tech', check out what's new at GolfBuddy:
GolfBuddy BB4 - RRP £199
The GolfBuddy BB4 – the world’s first golf GPS sportsband – features a comfortable and fashionable lifestyle design. Slimmer and lighter than a GPS watch, its light-up display shows the distance to the front, center and back of the green and also includes a time mode.
Distances are accurate directly from the golfer's angle of approach, as opposed to some brands who only offer a fixed front centre and back. You can also easily measure shot distance in metres or yards.
This sleek, modern band comes pre-loaded with more than 37,000+ courses worldwide and boasts automatic course and hole recognition so it can be used straight out of the box.
Supremely comfortable in the swing, with minimal interference when moving wrists, the BB4 will be available in two colours, black and white.
GolfBuddy PT4 - RRP £299
The GolfBuddy PT4 boasts a 4” LCD touchscreen, the largest and highest resolution screen in the handheld device category, with the capacitive screen delivering mobile smartphone levels of speed and responsiveness when touched.
Light taps and swipe gestures are recognised immediately by the screen, allowing the golfer to get instant distances to any point on any colour overhead hole layout, while the Touch 'N' Move flag function operates at superfast speeds.
The PT4 also feels like a smartphone in the hand, being just 16mm thin - around 42% slimmer than GolfBuddy's own current flagship handheld device.
Dynamic Green View, shot distance measurement, a replaceable lithium battery and full ProPlay score and stats tracking system are all on offer on this exceptional, modern handheld.
GolfBuddy WT4 - RRP £179
Bucking the trend for bulky, sports style GPS watches, the new GolfBuddy WT4 offers premium golf GPS functionality - but on a slimmer, stylish and more comfortable device.
Without a raised bezel, the brushed metal face of the WT4 sits flush to the strap, making it just 12.5 mm thick (a reduction of 21% when compared to GolfBuddy's own WT3 sports watch, now available in white for 2014).
Full target and hazard information is on offer, alongside Dynamic Green View and Moveable Pin Placement. while the scorecard can be used on any of the 37,000+ pre-loaded worldwide courses.
The WT4’s time, date and stopwatch functions mean this dynamic device can be worn every day and the clock display can be shown digitally or as an analogue face, with hands. The WT4 is water resistant and comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts for 9 hours in GPS mode and 50 days in watch mode.
GolfBuddy VS4 - RRP £159
An enhancement of GolfBuddy's original Voice and Voice+ models, this latest audio DMD, is a versatile device that users can wear or use any way they wish.
The unit features Dynamic Green View and displays and speaks the distance to the front, centre and back of the green. The VS4 boasts 10 hours of battery life and can be attached to a wristband or clip. It's available with the option of white with gold trim or black with red trim.
With a database of more than 37,000 course maps in more than 130 countries - available completely fee-free for life with no annual subscriptions and updated weekly.
