Epson Pulsense PS-100 Heart Rate Tracker Launched at $130



Epson Pulsense PS-100 Band

Seems like every other organization is getting into the wearables technology, and Epson is another example of it. The Japanese electronics giant, whose portfolio is somewhat different from the many wearables technology firms, is a leader in print computing as well as has known for its imaging equipments. With its heart rate monitor, the company wants you to keep tabs on the health of your heart.

The Pulsense PS-100 band, features a pulse-sensing technology to track the data regarding your heart. The interesting thing to note is that, the device comes in a package of a small wristband, which lacks the display screen. Something, which is that small and can monitor your heart rate is novel indeed!

Epson Pulsense PS-100 Band The device allows you to do cardio-zone training, by using its LED indicators, despite the lack of screen. The band uses a Bluetooth 4.0 technology, which allows it connect to the company’s proprietary activity-tracking app installed on a smartphone with Bluetooth 4.0 support. As well as you can either pair your Pulsense band with your favorite workout apps like Runkeeper or Endomondo, just like you would have with any other heart rate chest-strap monitor.

The band also tracks your step count as well as sleep patterns and boasts vibrate feature for alerts. Sleep tracking means the device can learn a user’s patterns of sleep allowing them to set smart alarm that vibrates to wake them when they at the peak in sleep, meaning waking feels natural and refreshing. It can store data of up to 480 hours, though; the device will only last 36 hours on a full charge, claims Epson.

On the comparison note, there are dozens of heart rate monitors available in the wearables space including the likes of Samsung Gear Fit, Wahoo TICKR RUN, as well as recently announced Basis Peak. Though, the Epson Pulsense PS-100 has the advantage in the pricing as the device cost $129.99, which is lower than most of the heart rate monitors in the market.

Considering the stylish Fitbit Force or the Jawbone UP24, the Epson’s Pulsense band isn’t as svelte as any of the Fitbit and Jawbone bands. But as it is designed to watch your ticker, you should give it a pass. It also touts the ability to set goals as well as the device would be able to alert users via the vibrate feature, to keep them within their training zones.

The device is currently up for pre-order on Amazon and would start shipping from October 26. So, if you have a need to track your heart rate and wants few basic fitness tracking features with it, the Espon Pulsense (PS-100) might be one of the best options you got.
