Bosch BLAZE™ GLM 42 Delivers Easy-to-Read Backlit Color Display That Makes Easy-to-Use Device More Indispensable

Pocket-size laser measure has 135 ft. range and great accuracy for applications that extend from length to area to volume

Mt. Prospect, Ill., May 23, 2017 – For any electronic device with a screen, a great display is the key to a great experience. The Bosch BLAZE™ GLM 42 laser measure delivers on that promise by offering users an easy-on-the-eyes, full-color backlit display with great resolution anywhere, even in dark areas or in low-light/no-light conditions.

The Bosch GLM 42 provides default real-time length, length, area, volume and indirect measuring functions that 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 instant and reliable measurements up to 135 ft. with accuracy ±1/16 in.

“The screen is a highlight, but there’s more to the Bosch BLAZE GLM 42 for users in search of a laser measure with 135 ft. range at an attractive price,” said Stephanie Dahl, product manager – laser measuring, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. “This is a workhorse tool that professionals will come to rely upon. If you’re a carpenter, you need this handy, precise measuring tool. If you’re a real estate agent, you need this easy-to-handle, accurate measuring tool.”

Default real-time measuring adjusts automatically the closer to or the farther from the target the user is – providing real-time, walk-off results like a tape measure. Bosch laser measures offer a handy pocket-size design that makes them easy to use anywhere. The squared shape plays a role in overall functionality by ensuring the unit can measure in any direction from a flat surface.

The Bosch GLM 42 is powered by two AAA batteries that supply enough power for more than 10,000 measurements. The device also comes with a target card, a hand strap and a pouch.
