Unique thanks to autonomous measurement of the lawn area

  • Efficient: Up to 40 percent faster due to systematic mowing in parallel lanes
  • Robust: Longer lifetime due to brushless motors and removable battery
  • Intelligent: “SmartMowing” function determines ideal mowing schedule
  • Convenient: More flexible lawn care thanks to Amazon Alexa voice control

Convenient, automatic lawn care for medium and large gardens – for this purpose, Bosch now offers the robotic lawnmower Indego M 700 and the connected Indego M+ 700 for lawn areas of up to 700 square meters. As one of the first robotic lawnmowers on the market, the Indego makes use of sensors and software to map the garden and measure the lawn area exactly. Based on the collected data, the intelligent “LogiCut” navigation system allows for systematic mowing in parallel lanes. Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700 thus cut up to 40 percent faster than robotic lawnmowers, which mow in a random pattern. Thanks to “LogiCut”, the mowers know which areas they have already mowed and which areas still have to be cut. This saves energy and goes easy on the lawn because repeated random cutting of an area can lead to lawn damage in the long term. The brushless motors provide for more efficiency and a longer lifetime of the mower. They generate less friction and, therefore, less heat, which saves energy. What is also new is that the robotic mowers are operated with a 18 volt battery from the “Power for All” battery system. For the first time, it can now be removed and replaced by the user. There is no need to visit the service center.

High added value for users thanks to exact measurement of the lawn area

Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700 mow completely independently within a defined area that is marked out by a perimeter wire. The mower itself determines the exact measurement of the size and shape of the lawn, which allows Bosch to provide users with even more added value. The Indego calculates the ideal mowing schedule based on the size of the lawn. The number, days, time and duration of mowing procedures is automatically calculated based on the actual lawn size, the area that can be mowed in one battery charge, the required charging times and the breaks that must be observed, for example at the weekend. This intelligent calendar function saves you from having to program this information manually. Thanks to the “SmartMowing” function, the Indego M+ 700 takes additional factors into consideration such as grass growth, temperature and rainfall. This guarantees constant ideal care of the lawn. The “MultiArea” function is also integrated in both robotic mowers: Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700 mow separate garden areas, for example, front and back gardens, in systematic lanes with the help of a second docking station.

Both mowers also come with a border cut function that can now be tailored to the user’s needs. Before starting to cut the lawn, Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700 will mow along the outer perimeter wire and follow it until reaching the back of the docking station again. What is new is that the user can select between having the border cut once every full cut, every two cuts or not at all. This provides the opportunity to save energy as well as time. With the Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700, Bosch also makes use of artificial intelligence (AI): Bosch uses machine learning to improve the way the robotic lawnmower detects obstacles on the lawn.

Even more flexibility through Amazon Alexa and connectivity platform IFTTT

Tell the Indego to start mowing, to pause or order its return to the docking station – with the connected Indego M+ 700, all of this is also possible using Amazon Alexa voice control. Further options for controlling the robotic lawnmower and adapting lawn care to your own requirements are available with the connectivity platform IFTTT under www.ifttt.com: Here, garden lovers can connect any Indego M+ model to over 700 products and services (see PI 10948 ). In addition, both mowers feature a new design. Users can personalize their Indego, plus the Indego Garage, under www.designmymower.com ‒ make it unique by uploading their own image (see PI 10753 ).

Indego M 700 and Indego M+ 700 are available from February 2020. All prices are recommended retail prices including VAT.

The “Remote SpotMow” function on the Indego M+ 700 will be available from summer 2020 and updated to the connected users over the air. When this function is selected, the robotic mower can cut specific areas that are otherwise covered, for example, by garden furniture or playing equipment such as trampolines. By tapping a location on the lawn map, users can send the robotic mower with their smartphones to the area they wish to mow. The Indego M+ 700 then starts at the bottom left corner and starts to mow the lawn of this area systematically in parallel lanes.
