Are you tired of that cumbersome steel measure that is always threatening to cut you across your hand as you operate it? Than the Bosch GLM 50 Laser Distance Measurer is here to take away that nightmare. The Measure uses latest laser technology to measure a variety of functions using the same tool including length, width, and volume among others. It is a nicely designed tool with an attractive blend of blue, red and black for colors and hard synthetic casing and accessories which we will review a bit later.

The laser measure is suitable for both professionals and first time users as it comes with a comprehensive manual which is easy to understand for any average person. It can be used for both simple and more complicated measurements which makes it suitable for anyone to use even at domestic level. The product is a must have in areas where measurements are taken often and are crucial to a particular project. It could range from a small girl wanting to put up wall paper in her room to a painter contracted to paint a whole warehouse.

That is how dynamic the uses are Some of the features that make this product a must buy include: 

A digital interface with an automated backlight that clearly shows the measurements being taken and which alerts you in case of any malfunctions It has a durable synthetic casing of blue and black complimented by red function buttons. Measures length, width, volume, continuous measurements and indirect length measurements. A belt pouch and shoulder strap Can be used to do measurements from the front, back or Centre of the room to be measured.

Measuring a room form the Centre will require a tripod which comes as an added accessory which you will have to pay for.

It is battery operated and comes with a set of two AAA batteries Let's explore why you would go for this product as opposed to any other similar tool. Multiple measuring functions You can use the tool to measure several dimensions as opposed to having several tools for different tasks. This may seem like no big deal at first but can you imagine the convenience of not having to move around every room taking various measurements but doing the same by just standing at one point? Ok now imagine a big project with several rooms to be measured. The difference is significant.

Saves time 
Related to the above a laser measure saves time given its multiple functions so you do not have to keep switching from measure to measure for different purposes. A one stop shop which will save you a considerable amount of time.

Easy to use 
The product design allows for easy access to all its functions which are elaborated in the manual that comes along with it. You could also get a simple tutorial from a more experienced person who has handled the same before.

It is durable 
The measure has a hard casing protecting it from damage especially since it is most likely to be used in a busy environment and shared among several people. All this was taken into consideration when designing the product so you are covered on that one There is also limited or no contact with hard surfaces that will scratch or damage your measure. It uses the laser rays to do the measurements as opposed to such traditional tools which would usually have to be held against the object being measured.

Competitive price 
Given the functionalities of the product and its guaranteed long life span it is a good deal and is relatively affordable across board. Battery operated It comes with a set of two AAA batteries that last a span of two hours. The fact that you do not have to power the device directly from an electric power source means that you can easily move around with it and use it almost anywhere. A set of fully charged batteries may be advisable especially at a busy site where several measurements are being taken over a long period of time Rechargeable batteries are recommended so you don't have to keep buying new ones.
The device has a warning signal when your batteries are about to die prompting you to replace the same. Preciseness The gadget only has an error of 1 5mm and this gives you precise measurements whose errors if at all are negligible and would not affect the overall task at hand, say buying paint to do a room. If the error was significantly bigger then may have led to incorrect budgets for materials to be used, say floor tiles. The tool can actually be said to give precise measurements.


The belt pouch and shoulder loop make it even easier to move the tool around while doing other tasks with your hands and only removing it when you need to use it Hard to reach areas The Bosch GLM 50 Laser Distance Measurer can be used to take measurements even in areas that would otherwise be hard or impossible to reach like a room with items stacked against the wall. You will not have to move anything when using a laser measure. This also saves on human energy which can be used to do other things.

It is light This will not discourage you from carrying around as it does not FEEL heavy At 5 ounces it means it can also be carried conveniently with other tools without making much difference in terms of weight. Environmentally friendly The product has been tested and meets all environmental standards. It does not emit any harmful radiation or otherwise. Originality The design and standards of this tool make it highly improbable to make a counterfeit. You are assured that you are buying an original product.


There is hardly anything to say to deter you from buying the item. In exceptional cases you may find those kind of people who are generally old school and do not embrace any form of technology; it may be an uphill task for such people to operate the gadget let alone accept it in the first place. The digital aspect may also scare off first time users who are used to handling more manual equipment. Above all given the important role that measurements play in our day to day lives especially for various manual workers the Bosch GLM 50 Laser Distance Measurer is a very ideal tool and would make a very good companion.
