Epson introduced GPS-monitor for jogging enthusiasts
In Japan, Epson announced a wrist monitor - or rather, a special navigator, which will help when jogging. Externally, the device under the name Epson WristableGPS is like a watch. New product is designed to record your speed and measure the distance covered.
When developing the tools engineers use the latest technologies and created a special energy-efficient and high-precision module. The device is able to work in an active GPS-mode for 14 hours without recharging.
