Epson enters wearable market, debuts GPS running watch, golf-swing analyzer

PulsenseLAS VEGAS — Epson has thrown its hat into the wearable market. With the help of celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson, Olympic silver medalist Meb Keflezighi and top golf instructor David Leadbetter, the company unveiled its “Epson Active” portfolio at the International CES trade show. Joining the Epson Pulsense activity tracker, which was announced last November, are a series of GPS running watches and a golf-swing analyzer.


The first product category Epson announced was the Pulsense activity trackers. The company debuted two trackers last November: the Pulsense P-100 and more expensive Pulsense P-500. Both devices can track your steps, calories burned, distance, sleep and heart rate. There is also a 5-point LED light system on the front that is used to indicate your heart rate zone. The only difference between the two devices is that the P-500 has an LCD display to view real-time data.  More
