Bosch recently released their new BLAZE Gen 2 Laser Measures that reach further, work faster, and stay more accurate than previous and competitor models. If you’re in the market for a laser measuring tool that truly does it all—look no further.

All of the BLAZE Gen 2 lasers are IP65 rated and drop tested at 5ft. to withstand demanding jobsite conditions. The full rubber overmold protects all the major impact points on the laser, making it super durable and impact resistant, while also protecting the tool from dust, other debris and water damage.

The BLAZE Gen 2 lasers provide accurate readings within +/- 1/16″ up to 165 ft. Multiple measuring features calculate distance, area, volume, and indirect measurements, making this an incredibly versatile measuring tool. There is also a level function to check and align doors, window frames, railings, etc. These laser tools are very user-friendly, featuring an easy-to-read display and vibration feedback for successful/failed measurements.

The Full Range

The BLAZE GLM165-22 165 Ft. Laser Measure is a red laser option with all of the great features mentioned above. There is also a green beam version (GLM165-25G) with lasers that are up to 4x brighter than the red one. This is because green lasers are more visible to the human eye and can usually be seen at further distances, so it’s ideal for outdoor or other brightly lit areas. If you want to learn more about the differences between red and green lasers and what type of applications each are suited for, check out our Red vs. Green Laser Level blog post for more information.

The BLAZE GLM165-27C Connected 165 Ft. Laser Measure takes things one step further by allowing you to connect to the Bosch MeasureOn app wirelessly through Bluetooth. This connection lets you transfer measurements and data to any smartphone or tablet, measure remotely, manage projects, and create floor plans digitally on site. This ensures that all of your information is stored securely and maximizes the benefits of your tool.

Lastly, the GLM165-27CGL provides all the benefits of the Bluetooth connected laser, but it runs on a rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery–unlike the other models that run on alkaline batteries. The 3.7V battery fully charges in 15 minutes and allows for a longer run time for extended use applications. The longer run time, paired with the strength and precision of a green laser, makes this an exceptional tool for almost any application.
