Consumers and Golf Industry Recognizing the Vast Performance Benefits of the New X5 Multi-Function GPS Smart Golf Watch and Pro L2 Laser Rangefinder

Edinburgh, Scotland (May 25, 2023)  – Shot Scope (, the industry-leader in advanced GPS and shot tracking technology, and recently ranked #7 among the Top 100 UK IP Companies in 2023 by the Intellectual Property League, has netted a trio of industry awards for its new GPS smart golf watch and laser rangefinder products, the company announced.

Shot Scope has enjoyed strong consumer response, brisk sales and industry accolades since its March launch of the X5 multi-function GPS Smart Golf Watch, the next generation in the Company’s award-winning performance tracking and distance measuring smart watch technology. Designed to be worn both on and off the course, the stylish X5 offers AI-powered performance tracking of over 100 statistics with a built-in step counter and accurate, real-time front, middle and back distances to all greens, hazards and doglegs on over 36,000 preloaded golf courses worldwide.

The company has fared equally well since the April launch of the Pro L2 Laser Rangefinder, a multi-function, high performance distance measuring device (DMD) at an unmatched $149.99 price point. The easy-to-use PRO L2 offers a breadth of advanced innovation that cannot be equaled for a DMD under $150. Hit the target quickly and accurately with Shot Scope’s rapid-fire technology and every time a golfer locks onto a target, the target-lock vibration inside the PRO L2 sends a short pulse, confirming that the golfer has hit their target. What’s more, the PRO L2 easily mounts on your cart or pushcart with the extra strong built-in magnet.

On the heels of these innovative product launches, Shot Scope has earned three industry awards recognizing key performance, value and technical benefits, including:

  • Shot Scope PRO L2 Laser Rangefinder Wins MyGolfSpy 2023 Best Value Rangefinder
  • Shot Scope X5 Smart Golf Watch Wins Golf Monthly 2023 Editor’s Choice Award 
  • Shot Scope X5 Wins Today’s Golfer Editor’s Choice Award Best golf watch for shot tracking

“Shot Scope’s smart golf watch and laser rangefinder popularity continues to surge around the world, and we are thrilled that media throughout the U.S. and Europe recognize our distance measuring and performance tracking technologies,” said David Hunter, CEO, Shot Scope. “Since launching the X5 Smart Golf Watch, response from golfers has been tremendous and now our new PRO L2 Laser Rangefinder gives us an even deeper portfolio of products that meet the on-course game management needs of every type of golfer.”
