Epson America today announced that its Pulsense™ PS-100 Band was named a
finalist in the Health, Fitness & Wellness category of CTIA’s Hot
for the Holidays Awards competition. In time for the holiday buying
season, the Hot
for the Holidays Awards recognize the hottest mobile consumer
electronics, including gadgets and accessories from entertainment and
health to the connected car and home.
The Hot for the Holidays Awards ceremony will take place at the Connected
Life Zone stage Wednesday, September 10 from 1:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
The Pulsense PS-100 Band is an innovative bio sensing wrist wearable
device that can monitor and store your heart rate, activity level,
calorie burn and sleep patterns. Featuring Epson’s proprietary
heart-rate sensing module, Pulsense detects a user’s continuous heart
rate directly from the wrist without requiring a chest strap. It can
store up to 480 hours of heart-rate data before having to transfer data
to a smartphone app or computer. The device features LED indicators for
heart-rate based zone training, making Pulsense an ideal wrist companion
for those looking to focus on fat burn or aerobic zone exercise.
“We are honored to be named a finalist for CTIA’s Hot for the Holidays
Awards,” said Anna Jen, director, New Ventures/New Products for Epson.
“Pulsense gives consumers the tools and data to take control of their
health and lifestyle goals by providing clear insights that enable them
to get the most out of their workouts and activities. This data empowers
users to make informed choices by providing personalized data and
feedback on all of their activities throughout the day.”
“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and
services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and
their engagement with their customers. Perfectly positioned for
retailers to prepare for the holiday buying season, Super Mobility Week
attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services,”
said Robert Mesirow, CTIA Vice President and Show Director.
Along with CTIA’s two other awards programs, E-Tech
Awards and MobITs

than 50 industry experts, analysts and media.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
