The GolfBuddy Aim W12 GPS is the most advanced watch the brand has ever made, packed with features that make the game easier, more interactive and more fun.

The premium watch, of course, comes with all the basic golf GPS features you'd expect like front, middle and back yardages, distances to bunkers and penalty areas as well as the ability to record and track your score.

However, a number of special features truly take the Aim W12 up a level to enhance golfers' rounds and help you shoot lower scores, and they're very user-friendly.

For example, when hitting into a green, especially one you don't know, golfers will not always know in which specific section the pin is in and where best to aim their iron shots.

This changes with the Green Undulation feature that allows golfers to see the slopes of the putting surface up close on their wrists to really plan their approaches. It can be the difference between leaving yourself a tricky two-putt to giving yourself a good look at birdie.

And if you're playing a new course and want to know exactly where you're going? GolfBuddy Aim W12 users don't need to worry about guessing the line or which club to hit.

That's because GolfBuddy's new 2D Hole Flyover gives players a view of the hole before you tee off, then gives you all the important distances. These come slope adjusted, which can be turned off during tournament play.

Need to lay up on a par 5? Long-press the hole layout to use the Touch Targeting feature and get distances to that point from your current location, and from that point to the green.

As well as these standout features, the Aim W12 allows you to track your shot distances to help you gain an understanding of how far each club and specific shot has gone.

The Aim W12 can also be used in day-to-day life away from the golf course as a smart watch, with interchangeable faces available and a daily step and calorie tracker. And don't worry about getting it wet, as it's IPX7 Waterproof.

The Aim W12 also has a 10-hour battery life in Golf Mode to ensure that you get at least two rounds out of one full charge. GolfBuddy also has a UK-based customer service team to quickly assist golfers.

Take a look at three of the GolfBuddy Aim W12 GPS Golf Watch's standout features in more depth...

Green Undulation

The game-changing Green Undulation feature displays the gradation of the slope on the green through different colours - blue being the lowest point of incline and red being the highest.

This addition gives golfers a more detailed view of the green, allowing you to dial-in your approach play to result in lower scores. The feature is available at select UK courses.

2D Hole Flyover

The 2D Hole Flyover feature gives golfers an overview of the course layout complete with distances to the front, centre and back of the green.

Tapping the +/- buttons will allow users to zoom in and out of the hole for a closer view. When you change hole, you will see an automatic flyover which will give you an idea of what you're about to face.

Touch Targeting

Designed for golfers who are great at on-course management, Touch Targeting allows you to tap anywhere on the hole view and you’ll be provided with a distance to that point from where you are, as well as a distance from that point to the green. 

Now you can lay-up on Par 5s with ease and plan where to hit your next shot.

The GolfBuddy Aim W12 GPS Golf Watch comes with an RRP of £279.99.
