Today at CES 2015, Epson unveiled two products making their U.S. debut under the umbrella of Epson Active. That's the blanket label for Epson’s focus for the future—providing support and delivering technology to its partners developing wearables and more.
Following on the heels of the release of Epson’s Pulsense fitness band, Epson has added Runsense to the lineup. As the name would suggest, it's a wrist-worn device designed for running enthusiasts.
A few versions of Runsense are available: All come with GPS, and some offer heart rate monitoring. Battery life for the Runsense is stated at 20 to 30 hours, depending on activity rates, and the device is meant to be worn as a watch when you're not exercising.
At its CES press conference, Epson also released the M-Tracer, an accelerometer designed to improve the golf game of amateurs and pros alike. Epson has partnered with David Leadbetter, the world’s leading golf instructor, to develop and promote the device.
The M-Tracer fits snugly under the hand grip of your golf club, measuring club speed and tracking your swing arc, tilt, and impact force, among other factors. The M-Tracer will be available later this spring for $299.
In addition to Runsense and the M-Tracer, Epson brought forward a number of partners to showcase different applications for its Moverio smart glasses, including a number of augmented reality platforms and games.
