Huawei’s new smart glasses have access to a smart assistant and also allow the wearer to easily change their style by replacing the frames.
Huawei announced a new pair of smart glasses for consumers to consider. The smart glasses trend picked up in 2021 with new models from old and new players in the space. Every business tries to approach smart glasses differently. While some focus on delivering a camera-centric experience, like Snapchat’s Spectacles series and Facebook’s Ray-Ban Stories, others focus on audio, like the Razer Anzu smart glasses and Soundcore frames.
Then there are the more advanced smart glasses options. For example, the Lenovo ThinkReality A3 is a pair of AR smart glasses that connects to a compatible PC or smartphone to allow users to be more productive while working using features like a virtual monitor. TCL also has a pair of smart glasses that allow the wearer to view a massive, virtual 140-inch screen.
New Huawei smart glasses are not the company’s first attempt. In the past, she launched two series of glasses with Korean brand Gentle Monster. However, he decided to do things a little differently with his latest pair, as the new Huawei smart glasses run a version of HarmonyOS, Huawei’s custom operating system that powers its phones, TVs, smartwatches and built-in devices. speakers. The smart glasses also appear to be designed to work only with Huawei’s own products, which isn’t all that surprising. Another big change is the design as buyers now have the option to swap the frames. Huawei offers six different models overall, including a set of aviator-style sunglasses. In addition, buyers can also have their prescription lenses fitted in the frames.
An assistant on your face
Huawei’s smart glasses come with a lot of features, but to quickly sum it up, they put an assistant on your face. The smart glasses will remind the wearer of appointments and read messages, as well as provide weather updates and translations. The glasses can also be used to take and make calls, or send voice messages. Thanks to the built-in stereo speakers, users can also listen to their favorite songs / podcasts without the need for a separate headset. In addition, the glasses are also equipped with gesture support, allowing the use of a combination of swipes, pinches and taps. Using one or a combination of these gestures, users can control playback and accept or reject calls. In addition to the feature list, there is also wear detection to automatically pause reading when the wearer takes them off. Speaking of sensing, a nice addition is posture sensing which alerts the wearer to sit up straight after sensing that the head has been tilted down for a while.
Huawei smart glasses can connect to two devices at the same time, and fast pairing support is available for those who have a Huawei phone, tablet or computer. The companion app can be used to manage connected devices and to see the last known location of smart glasses. When it comes to battery life, the smart glasses come with an 85mAh battery capable of providing up to 4.5 hours of talk time and 6 hours of listening. In addition, the proprietary USB-C charging cable supports fast charging. The datasheet also mentions an IPX4 rating which makes them splash proof but not dust proof.
Huawei charges RMB 1,699, which equates to around $ 267 for smart glasses. However, the cost of a stand-alone framework is unknown. Although the smart glasses are currently exclusive to China, there is a chance that they will get a global release since its other smart glasses are sold in Europe and Asia Pacific. Unsurprisingly, the new Huawei smart glasses are not expected to arrive in North America.
