The DISTO X3 is a job-site ready, IP65-rated laser distance meter that is drop tested from 2 meters.
The DISTO X3 is also the first model in the lineup that has an angle sensor. It powers a digital level and guarantees a level horizontal measurement in situations where accuracy is paramount and it is difficult or impossible to avoid taking the measurement at an angle.

The Leica Geosystems GZM3 Target Plate is designed to improve the workflow of measuring templates and countertops by making inaccurate edge measurements a thing of the past.
Used in combination with a 3D Disto or any other Leica DISTO, the GZM3 Target Plate accelerates the process of measuring to corners, curves and flat surfaces from any position.

The intelligent tripod adapter Leica DST 360 is the ideal complement for the Leica DISTO X3 and X4. It enables the measurement of a distance between any two points, the capturing of 2D and 3D data for further processing in CAD programs and the precise targeting of an object. The sturdy metal housing ensures optimum robustness and consistently accurate measurement results.

Automatically Correct Angled Measurements
A laser beam is perfectly straight by definition, making it more accurate than a tape measure. That is also why a laser measurement taken at an angle returns a longer value: An angled line to a plane is longer than a level one. More often than not, this level horizontal distance is the measurement you need.
This fact of geometry can be a problem on active sites where stacks of materials, machinery or other obstacles prevent a level horizontal measurement. The longer the measurement, the greater the error.
In Smart Horizontal mode, DISTOs use the reading from an angle sensor to correct a measurement taken at an angle. The result is an accurate level measurement even if you have to aim over obstacles on the job site.
Ensure accurate measurements from corners and tight places
The Multi-functional endpiece folds out from the back of the DISTO and automatically sets the measuring point to either the rear of the DISTO or the tip of the extended endpiece.
This DISTO-exclusive feature ensures that the DISTO is measuring precisely from an outside corner (a very common use case). When fully extended, it is possible to measure from the back of openings as narrow as 2.5mm. Combined with Min/Max mode, there is no better method for determining the precise corner-to-corner measurement of a rough opening when installing windows or doors.
Job Site Ready
Just because it talks to smartphones, tablets, or computers doesn't mean DISTOs can't take a hit: These devices are both smart and tough.
Wash it off with a hose: An IP65 ingress protection rating means that this DISTO is protected from water and dust so it can deliver reliable measurements for years to come.
Work Smarter with Apps
Connect to your phone, tablet, or computer with Bluetooth.
Send measurements to compatible apps like our own DISTO Plan App (pictured above) or drop measurements at the cursor in a spreadsheet.
Certified specialist apps for everyone from cabinet makers to real estate appraisers are available.
Measure the surface area of a room
Take the guesswork out of buying paint or any wall covering.
The Painter Function walks you through the steps of combining multiple wall area measurements to determine the total surface area of all the walls in a room.
Calculate Area and Volume
In area mode, the DISTO determines the area of a rectangular or square space in two measurements. Volume mode adds a third vertical measurement to calculate the volume of a space.
It’s got brawn and brains, too.
The X3 is a tough DISTO, but it’s also smart. It includes our Smart Horizontal feature with an on-board tilt sensor so you can measure over and around obstacles. It also has Bluetooth® so you can transfer your measurements to your computer or tablet—and you can use it with the DISTO Plan App for iOS and Android.
Poor lighting conditions? We can help you lighten up.
The DISTO X3 has a bright, colorized, backlit display for taking measurements in all kinds of lighting conditions, ranging from dark indoor measurements in a basement to bright outdoor measurements.
Take your measurements to the next level.
The X3 is our first DISTO that is compatible with the DST 360, a smart tripod and adapter set that extends the measurement possibilities of your X3. With the DST 360, your X3 turns into a professional measurement station—you can take point to point (P2P) measurements from one location.
Capable of Point-to-Point (P2P) measurement technology. When used with the DST 360, the X3 can combine rotation, angle, and distance data to produce highly accurate Point-to Point (P2P) measurements, which allows you to accurately measure distances between any two points from a third position.
Make this DISTO even smarter.
Use the DISTO Plan App to access Sketch, Document, and Smart Room features to create detailed CAD-ready floor and wall plans, including doors and windows. Export your plans as .DXF or .DWG files.
