Epson Runsense SF-810 my running Coach – GPS & HR Accuracy

As my final review I’m again comparing against Garmin Connect with the 920 using the web apps side by side.

The Epson GPS faltered slightly when under tree cover with the GPS loosing accuracy, whereas the Garmin maintained the course line. But overall was pretty bang on.

The HR was pretty much the same, but I’m aware you do have to have the watch quite tight to your wrist for the heart rate to be picked up, which I’m not particular keen on. I don’t want to be running and feel like my hand is having the oxygen supply cut off. Having said that the monitoring mirrors quite closely to that of the Garmin heart rate monitor strap.

All other stats are pretty much equal in comparison with the average HR for split, and calories burnt. So in terms of accuracy, there’s not a lot in it, as long as the Epson is deciding to play ball on the day.

See my earlier review for the glitches I experienced.

Creativity has always been an important aspect of my life and has been a natural instinct to progress within the creative industry. Throughout my education I have always been inspired by my emotional state of mind at that time. This is most evident through the study Emblematic Essence which taught me a great deal not only about myself but life as a whole. It was a monumental, positive thinking turning point and influenced me greatly, providing a solid basis from which I have grown and developed as an individual.
