Bushnell says the Excel is their most advanced GPS watch and allows for wireless course updates and smartphone notifications.

Pre-loaded with more than 35,000 courses, the Bluetooth capabilities mean golfers can use the Bushnell Golf App to get course updates without needing to sync with a computer and receive call, messaging and calendar notifications on the watch.
