Now Epson can do more than just tell you our ink is low. Computing industry giants Epson are the latest company to join the ever growing trend of fitness wearables.
Whilst it may seem like an odd jump from printers to watches, a little research in the company's history suggests it’s not such a great leap. Epson is a Japanese company founded in 1942 and part of the corporate entity ‘Seiko Epson’. The same ‘Seiko’ known for its watches.
Epson believe that what makes them stand out from other fitness watches is their precision technology. The company uses home grown quartz crystals, which have been at the heart of Seiko watches from the offset. The artificial quartz is said to be more pure and therefore enhance its accuracy.
The range of wearables includes the M Tracer, which monitors golfer's swing, The Pulsense activity trackers which monitor heart rate through blood flow and Runsense GPS running heart rate watches.
Could they be the future of fitness watches ? Watch this space. We will be reviewing the Epson Runsense SF-810 shortly.
