Three other products that won the award include the watch but aren’t sold in Australia.
The Good Design Awards are presented annually as a way to promote quality of life and the use of design in solving social issues.
One of the winning products was its SureColor F560. This compact 24-inch dye-sublimation printer ships as a package complete with ink, media, and software. Designed for small business and fine art applications, it combines compact size with high format flexibility, and a low cost of ownership.
According to the company, the SureColor SC-F560 joins Epson’s extensive and successful F series range.
“Designed to replace screen printing, these simple, efficient, and easy to use machines work in conjunction with a heat press to enable production of a wide range of durable items from metal signage and photo prints to soft signage, custom cabinetry, clothing, décor, and merchandise,” the company said, in a statement.
“The SC-F560 is aimed at promotion and fine art applications. Designed for low volume and ad-hoc work, it features flexible media handling and a tank ink system and produces images that are bright and colourful, in super-high 2400×1200 dpi max resolution. It uses extremely cost-effective ink and will ship as a complete package for quality production with minimum fuss.”
Its EcoTank ET-M3170 multi-function and ET-M3180 multi-function models also won the award for taking things up a notch by offering auto two-sided print, copy, scan and fax functions, Wi-Fi Direct, Ethernet and Fax (ET-M3170) and Wi-Fi Direct, Ethernet, Fax and PCL (ET-M3180) functionality.
Both the ET-M3170 and ET-M3180 have a 35-sheet automatic document feeder included.
Another winning product is the recently-launched EF-100W (white) and EF-100B (black) projector.
