Epson, better known for its printing solutions also came at the CES with its fleet of wearable gadgets. The Pulsense range includes couple of activity tracking devices like a watch and a band. Epson differentiates them with the rest of the wearable fitness tracker crowd by integrating a heart rate monitor that tracks it 24/7. Heart rate monitoring is in addition to the usual pedometer support, calorie tracking, sleep tracking etc.
The Pulsense watch integrates a small display that showcases all the info while the Pulsense Band just features LED indicators on the front with detailed management done through the app.
The Pulsense Watch will sell for $199 while the Pulsense Band will be available for $129 in summer 2014.
Epson also upgraded its Moverio glasses with the new BT-200. The new glasses are now 60 percent lighter than the previous generation and boasts two displays that outputs the Android interface. The glasses are transparent so that you don’t really miss the things that are happening in the real world but using Moverio BT-200 while doing some chores in real world is not recommended. It’s understandable that the device will be compared with the Google Glass but frankly, both the products are different in our opinion.
This time, Epson has also integrated a front-facing camera, motion sensors and is controlled by a control unit that has a large touchpad area to manoeuvre around. The Moverio BT-200 also has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a microSD card slot for memory expansion.
The Moverio BT-200 will sell in US for $699.
