Golf rangefinder wearables

Jon Lawson

u-blox components are at the core of two new GNSS products. The golf rangefinder wearables were launched by Voice Caddie, a brand of rangefinders and trackers based in South Korea.

The first product, the T3 Hybrid Golf GPS Watch, uses the compact u-blox UBX-G7020-KT professional-grade GNSS chip, which links with GPS/QZSS or GLONASS satellite systems.

The second product, the B1 GPS Band, uses the u-blox UBX-M8030-KT professional-grade GNSS chip, which provides industry-leading navigation sensitivity and industry-lowest current consumption. It is compatible with GPS, Galileo, GLONASS and BeiDou satellite systems.

The u-blox GNSS technology enables the T3 Watch and the B1 Band to automatically detect golf courses and holes, and shows the wearer the driving distance and remaining distance to the hole, as well as the distance to the front, middle and back of the green. The T3 Watch also measures short distances.
