Each monocular has a number of features, including a rugged, water-resistant housing, digital zoom, adjustable IR settings and daytime color viewing. Each unit is powered using AA batteries for additional convenience and cost savings.

In addition, the 4.5x40mm and 6x50mm models have image and video capture modes which let the user download still images or videos captured on the device.

The Bushnell Speedster III Radar Gun is the perfect tool for tracking speed.
