Epson ProSense 57 Review Facts

The Epson ProSense 57 is a very basic activity tracker and GPS watch that is perfect for beginners. The GPS feature will allow you to track your long distance runs, showing your route, tracking your distance, and recording your pace. You will also be able to keep track of your daily steps taken and calories burned while wearing this device. The heart rate monitor is a fan favorite, as you can keep track of your heart rate while working out to ensure you are in your target range. This watch, however, is not water resistant so if you are looking for something to wear in the pool then you might want to consider a different option. If you are looking for a plain and basic tracker that is both affordable and durable then you have come to the right place.

Advanced Features

As the Epson ProSense 57 is one of the more basic smartwatches on the market there are not a whole lot of more advanced features, but there are a few. This product will automatically upload all of the data it has tracked right to the Epson View app when you connect your phone via a Bluetooth connection. The app is great if you are trying to track your progress towards your fitness goals. You will also have the option, through the app, to customize your goals so you can choose something that is going to work the best for you and your needs. Not only can you customize your goals but you will also have the ability to customize your settings and workout options from the app so the watch will fit your own personal needs.

A fan favorite is the fact that you will have the ability to control your music right from your wrist. If you are in the middle of training or out on the run and you want to adjust the volume of your music or simply skip the track you will not have to deal with the hassle of taking your phone out, you can do so right from your watch quickly and easily.
Accuracy
Accuracy

Accuracy

The Epson ProSense 57 is fairly accurate when it comes to the GPS and heart rate features of the device. However, some customers have had complaints about the accuracy of the step counter as on some occasions simply shaking the tracker will count steps. That can be rather frustrating to some customers.
Connectivity

Connectivity

The Epson ProSense 57 watch connects to your phone through a Bluetooth connection. Many users have commented on how easy it is to get this to connect saying that it is super easy. Once you get that initial connection down you should not have to manually connect your phone again, it will be an automatic connection whenever you turn your Bluetooth on. Your data will automatically be uploaded to your Epson app so you can view and monitor your activities so there is nothing you need to do on your end.

When you have the connection established you will be able to control your music from your watch so you will not have to hassle with your phone if you want to adjust the volume or skip a track. You will also receive your smartphone notification to your wrist so you can see who is messaging or calling you without having to take your phone out of your pocket. However, you will not have the ability to respond to messages from your tracker so you will have to use your phone for that.
Apps

Apps

The Epson ProSense 57 smartwatch and activity trackers work with the Epson View app so you can keep track of your activity level and keep an eye on your progress towards your goals. The Epson View app gives you the ability to customize your watch by allowing you to choose what information is displayed front and center so you can choose what is most important to you and your health needs. You will be able to customize the look of the watch as well as what activities it will track for you.

In addition to the Epson app, you will also have the ability to link with some of the other more popular apps on the market today like MapMyRun, Strave, and RunKeeper. When you link your Epson to one of the many other fitness apps you will have the ability to track and monitor your activities but you can also share your information with friends and fellow runners. If you are an iPhone user you also get the added bonus of being able to link this to your Apple Health app which many customers appreciate.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

The Epson ProSense 57 is fairly comfortable which customers like. They watch itself is lightweight so it does not feel like a burden on your wrist. It is not big and bulky so it will not get in the way of your everyday normal activities and will not become a hindrance when wearing it to the gym. It is not at all boxy and it has curves and contours that fit nicely on your wrist for added comfort. There are a few customers who do not like the feeling of the band but for the most part, users are satisfied with the overall comfort level of this product. Many customers will wear this product all day, only removing it for charging or to take a shower.

Style

The Epson ProSense 57 smartwatch has a simple design that a lot of customers can appreciate. Many users have stated that it does look a lot like a sports watch and they would rather keep it in the gym or on the track, but there are many others who do not mind the look and will wear it for their daily activities as well. One thing that can be agreed on about the watch is that it is not a fancy watch and does really work as a business or a dress watch. This version of the ProSense is available in green, red, or black. Overall, customers do not have any complaints about the way this watch looks.
Durability
Durability

Durability

The Epson ProSense 57 activity tracker is designed to be extremely durable as it is made to be worn in the gym or on the trails. This watch can take a beating and keep on ticking. Customers love the fact that they do not have to worry about this product suffering from premature wear and tear. The screen of this watch is made out of plastic so you will not have to worry about it cracking or breaking too easily, however, it is a little more prone to getting scratches. Some customers have reported that the band can break easier than other watches with a silicone band, but for the most part there are not many problems with premature wear and tear.

The biggest problem that customers have when it comes to the lifespan of this product comes from the duration and quality of the battery. After some time the battery life will start to significantly decrease, which is not abnormal for devices with rechargeable batteries. Some reviewers stated that it will eventually not even hold a charge at all and need to be replaced.

Face

The face of the Epson ProSense 57 uses an LCD display with a 128x128 resolution. It features a durable plastic screen. Customers love that through the Epson View app they have the ability to customize the look of the display, allowing them to choose what information is displayed and how it is set up.
Band
Band

Band

The Epson ProSense 57 watch has a band that is made out of urethane instead of the typical silicone band that many other sports watches on the market have today. The use of the urethane bands has its ups and downs. The band is not as comfortable right out of the box as some customers would like and it can be a little more prone to cracking and breaking than the traditional silicone. The advantage of using this type of band, however, is that after wearing it for a while it will start to take the shape of your wrist and provide you a more comfortable fit. This band will also stay cleaner as it will not attract the dust or become sticky or tacky when it gets wet.

One of the biggest downfalls about the band of this watch, however, is that they are not interchangeable so you are stuck with the band you get when you purchase it. This does not seem to be too big of an issue but with most other watches on the market offering this feature, customers would like to have the option with this one.
Size

Size

The Epson ProSense 57 watch is fairly small and lightweight which is nice, as it will not get in the way of your workouts or other daily activities. This watch measures in at 2.2 inches x 1.8 inches x 0.6 inches and weighs in at only 0.09 pounds. There are no size options when it comes to the band, but it can be adjusted in small increments to ensure a better fit.

Power Source
Power Source

Power Source

The Epson ProSense 57 smartwatch uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is said to last about 10 hours. There are a lot of different factors that go into how long the battery will last so if you are using the heart rate monitor and GPS features then the battery will not last as long as it would if you had those features turned off.

One thing that customers do not particularly like about the power source of this watch is that it does not use a standard charging cable. You have to use their proprietary cable which makes it more difficult to replace if you lose or break your charger, or you simply want to have a spare.
