Alright , so you're probably thinking. "Hey John, You just reviewed a BOSCH laser measure, what the hell bro". And you would be correct. I literally just did one earlier this summer. But this one is different. Teaming up with Home Depot for another round of reviews for their PRO-Spective program, this is the first of the Q3 tools. Its a good one.
Now, most laser measurers have similar features and functions that make it stand on its own in a unique way, this one is no different. Featuring measuring functions include area, distance, length, and volume this tool comes with an upgraded color display with back lighting for increased visibility. Which are some awesome additions. BUT WAIT.... the coolest function of this device is its Bluetooth® technology that's compatible with the free Bosch app (MeasureOn). How cool is that. Keep reading as i dive into some more details!

Laser measuring tools can be quite convenient for custom woodworkers and contractors. Especially when they're easy to use, and accurate. The BOSCH GLM 50 C has some sweet features like its accuracy up to 1/16th of an inch! It offers a built-in inclinometer with 2 indirect measurement modes for getting precise and accurate measurements. I personally love the real time measurement feature, which shows the changes in distance as you move the laser around. The measure fits in your pocket and comes with (2) AAA Batteries.
The coolest part about theBOSCH 165ft Bluetooth Laser Measure tho, is the Bluetooth® technology. Linking to your smart phone or tablet, you can use the device in conjunction with the Free app in oder to put measurements right on photos from the job site, and create custom layouts right in the app! For anyone doing on site work, this is amazing. You can limit how many hand drawings you have to do, saving you time and money. Not to mention increasing your accuracy.
The BOSCH 165th Bluetooth Laser measure comes in at a new lower price of $119.00 at the Home Depot. Truthfully, for any professional looking to save time and money on the job site, this is a steal. I personally love these for measuring precise ceiling heights, as well as getting full room sizes. No more flimsy tapes, and asking the client to help hold it while you're in their home.
I think this item is a home run, honestly. I'm not typically one to advocate for unnecessary upgrades when you don't need them. But i have been in plenty of homes and have taken measurements one too many times where i could've used a bit more precision, or my notes got lost or ruined. This tool takes that guess work out of it for you. For me the value is in the Bluetooth® technology and app connectivity. Keeping me organized, and fast. Which in all, saves me money! For the price point, its a worthwhile investment and will pay itself off with limiting wasted time on site very quickly.
