Keeping active throughout the day is the key to staying fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The PS-100 is a good way of motivating and monitoring yourself throughout the day and during workouts. Features Epson’s innovative built-in heart rate sensor.

Epson PS-100 Activity Tracker reviewed and tested

Pulsense is a next generation activity tracker that not only uses an accelerometer but an Epson-developed optical heart rate monitor as well. The addition of heart rate information opens up a whole new world of data to more accurately track your activities. It will keep a record of your sleep, calories burned and even how your state of mind effects your heart rate. You can’t fool your heart rate – if Pulsense is reading it, everything counts.

Alternative products

The Epson PS100 does what it should however, in all honesty, there are better fitness bands. If you are interested in 1) Off the wrist heart rate 2) Activity Tracker 3) iPhone / Android app support 4) Daily steps target 5) Regular time of day, date and daily alarm functions there are a few alternatives. My personal favourite is the Polar A360 available from our online store. From the other leading brands the three standout alternatives are the Mio FuseFitbit Charge 2 and the Garmin Vivismart HR.

In conclusion

The Epson PS100 was a viable and sensible option when it was first released. However, since then there have been many better fitness bands that have demoted this model to the “also ran” category. However, it is CHEAP … Last time I looked on Amazon it was under £50. Whether you buy one or not depends really on what you’re looking for.  If you want a basic activity tracker with wrist based heart rate it’s 100% satisfactory. If you want something with time of day, more accurate heart rate and a better app then the Mio Fuse is the closest and superior alternative.
