The brand has previous form in this space however –they were apparently one of the first to bring GPS to market some 30 years ago.

The SF-710 is their top-end GPS run watch, with its key features including customisable interval, pace and lap training functions.

Elsewhere there are total ascent/descent data and gradient fields, with a key sell being the 30hr battery life. Run data is then transferred to Epson’s online portal and/or Run Connect app.

We’ll be testing Epson in issue 307’s heart-rate monitors grouptest, on sale 9 December. Price: £229 from www.epson.co.uk.
