The wearable industry is on the rise. It is no longer a surprise that there will be increasing numbers of different companies that will embark with this rise. One of the many companies that releases wearable is Epson which is a popular company because of it’s printers and scanners.
The Runsense SF-810 which is a GPS running watch is an addition to the product offering of Epson. An introductory product release to the wearable market Epson presents three models of its latest offering for the sport watches.
The three models can be classified into three different tier. The SF – 510 as an entry level cost $250. The SF-710 at midrange costs $280. The premium sports watch is the SF-810 which has a price tag of $350. The watches mentioned regardless if it is classified into three different categories still shares the same features. The SF-810, however, is equipped with a built-in optical heart-rate sensor which is an absent feature to the entry level and midrange sports watches.
WHAT IS EPSON’S RUNSENSE WATHCHES
It is neither an activity tracker nor a smartwatch. The SF-810 however, is a running watch that is geared with GPS. The three models of Epson’s running watches can tracked pace and distance at the same time. Apart from that, the high end premium model which is the SF-810 can also measure beats per minute, primarily because of the optical heart-rate sensor at the back.
The watches are designed exclusively for runners that means that the functions is only limited. Neither mode for swimming nor cycling isnt featured in these watches. Speed and distance on a bike can be measured when the GPS is eanbled through the normal running mode.
There is an accelerometer featured in this watch which is tasked as a substitute of the GPS. It will function once there’s unavailability of GPS signal. The presence of the accelemometer doesn’t mean that it can measure the steps you take, the distance you’ve walked or the percentage of calories you have burned.
