Epson Releases Fitness Trackers for Golfers & Runners; US Release First

Epson announced in CES that it is releasing its first set of wearables in US soon. There are two trackers to be specific, first in the sports section which will help golfers to analyse how well they are playing, and the second is a regular tracker which gives runners, walkers and fitness enthusiasts
of all levels precise data to plan, monitor and improve their performance.

M-Tracer Golf Swing Analyzer

This tracker can be attached to your club’s grip and then it sends real time data to your phone. In the app, this data is analyzed and gives golfers a complete swing breakdown, providing specific, actionable information at an incredible level of detail. With a built-in Inertial Measurement Unit developed by Epson for industrial applications, the M-Tracer tracks and records the swing path of the club, club-head speed, club-head path, face angle at the time of impact, tempo and more.

Golfers will be able to see the full swing path in 3D and offers the ability to rotate the view and compare their swing against that of a pro-level golfer or their own previously recorded swings. The app also provides comprehensive graphical analysis of the impact zone, shaft rotation, club speed and swing tempo.  It even has a built in freeze frame option for the critical “halfway back” and “at the top” positions.
