PREVIEW: Bushnell Golf X2 Pro, Tour V4 Shift rangefinders; Excel GPS watch

Bushnell Golf's 2017 lineup of rangefinders and GPS watches make it easier than ever to get yardages to your targets, including switching between slope-reading technology and tournament-legal capabilities.

Bushnell Golf X2 Pro laser rangefinder

The X2 Pro makes it easy as possible to change modes from a slope-calculating rangefinder to one that complies with USGA tournament rules.

The Pro X2 has rubber-armored metal housing to make the device completely waterproof. With a range of up to 1,300 yards, including more than 450 yards to a flag, the X2 Pro has PinSeeker with Jolt Technology, which makes the device vibrate when it hits a flag target. A dual display lets users decide on a red or black display. Second-generation ESP technology gets the yardage reading five times faster than the first generation, displaying half-yard accuracy from 5-125 yards.

The Bushnell Golf X2 Pro retails for $500.

Bushnell Golf Tour V4 Shift laser rangefinder

The Tour V4 Shift is faster, smaller and more ergonomic than the Tour V3, complete with Slope-Switch and Jolt technologies with PinSeeker.

The product is accurate up to 1,000 yards, going out up to 400 yards to a flag. The Tour V4 Shift is rainproof and has a two-year warranty.

The Bushnell Golf Tour V4 Slope will available in March for $400.

Bushnell Golf Excel GPS watch

The Bushnell Golf Excel GPS watch comes pre-loaded with more than 35,000 automatically recognized courses and has Bluetooth capabilities so a user can get course updates through the Bushnell Golf App and receive call, messaging and calendar notifications on the device. The Bushnell App allows golfers to book, pay for and confirm tee times on a smartphone.

The Excel lasts three-plus rounds before needing a charge, while displaying front, middle and back yardages to the green on a color display with auto-brightness adjustment. The watch has a pedometer and odometer and can deliver yardages to up to four hazards per hole.

The Bushnell Golf Excel Golf GPS Watch will be available in April for $250.
