Meet the Ridgid Micro LM-400: a Bluetooth laser distance meter that lets you make measurements and transmit data to your smartphone or tablet easily. It has a large, backlit, 4-line display that allows you to see your measurements conveniently. You can switch units with the push of a button. The companion iOS/Android app can overlay measurements onto photos or sketches.
The LM-400 supports inclination angle measurement, so you can indirectly measure hard to reach areas. It has a measuring range of up to 70 meters. Sets you back under $200 at this time.
