One of the newest pieces of eyewear to hit the market is the Oakley Radar Pace, smart sunglasses with voice-activated, real-time coaching. One of the global leaders in eyewear teamed up with Intel to create to help athletes better understand and track performance.
The software is designed to create personalized training programs, track performance metrics, give coaching feedback and responds to the user’s questions. Using Intel’s Real Speech technology, the software allows athletes to ask Radar Pace about pace, power output, heart rate, time, distance and speed. There are also internal accelerometer, gyroscope, pressure, humidity and proximity sensors.
The eyewear’s arms features a touch pad to toggle between volume adjustment, music control and even allows for the ability to answer phone calls through Bluetooth. The Radar Pace works with the mobile application of the same name so users can review stats after their runs or workouts.
The Radar Pace features crisp Prizm lenses with the glasses being water resistant. Check out Canadian Running‘s unboxing video (top of this page) to check out the additional accessories and closeups of the Radar Pace.
The Oakley Radar Pace retails for $570.
