By Ellen Cools
November 8, 2017 — The Bosch Blaze GLM 42 laser measure offers users full-colour backlit display with high resolution “even in dark areas or in low-light/no-light conditions.” The product provides default real-time length, area, volume and indirect measuring functions that the company says are simple to navigate thanks to a display guide that walks the user through each measurement function.
The device also has a 20-measurement storage capability, addition/subtraction functionality and a digital bubble vial to provide a visual reference when measuring horizontal distances. Precise laser technology ensures measurements up to 135-ft. with accuracy ± 1/16-in., Bosch says.
Featuring default real-time measuring that adjusts automatically the closer to or farther from the target the user is, the device comes in a pocket-size design and square shape that ensures the unit can measure in any direction from a flat surface.
