Over in Europe, Bosch has come out with the new GLM 50-27 C Professional, an advanced laser distance measuring tool.
The Bosch GLM 50-27 C is said to be a fast, reliable, and extremely robust laser distance measuring tool that’s suited for use on rough construction sites.
The Bosch GLM 50-27 C is a red laser distance measuring tool, but I also came across another image online that shows off what could be a green laser version of this tool.
I couldn’t find any additional details about the potential green laser distance measuring tool, other than a model number – GLM 50-27 CG.
The red laser, Bosch GLM 50-27 C, is said to have a 50-meter range (~164ft), IP65 dust and water resistance, and Bluetooth connectivity for use with a Bosch smartphone app.
As if its large color display and water resistant construction wasn’t enough, the new Bosch laser distance measuring tool also doubles as an angle measurement device, capable of measuring inclines of any angle from 0 to 360° with ±0.2° accuracy.
Features & Specs
- 50m (165′) range
- ±1,5mm accuracy
- 0-360° inclination measurement range
- ±0.2° accuracy
- Color display

There are additional features which seem straightforward and very useful, such as a “flip display” that suggests automatic self-correction when the tool is being used upside down, and vibration feedback which signals successful measurements.

This new model looks to be a HUGE upgraded compared to the Bosch Blaze GLM 50C that’s available in the USA.
At this time, there is no indication as to if or when the new Bosch GLM 50-27 C and GLM 50-27 CG laser distance measuring tools might launch in the USA.
In the meantime, the GLM 50C is on sale for $99 right now.
The Bosch USA 165′ laser distance measuring tool special buy is still for $40 as a Black Friday week 2020 promo.
