Created augmented reality glasses for navigation

On the market today, there are many smart bracelets, watches and trackers, which follow the training regime. In this case the intermediate results you can see at a glance on the wrist. And if for runners, this approach is quite suitable, but for swimmers this is not always convenient. And especially for them, the canadian company has developed a special smart glasses. And you can buy them now, but the price is almost “bite.” Especially if you are a swimmer-professional.

New smart goggles

A new accessory under the same company name FORM shows the user information about his training session, for example, the frequency of the flapping of the arms, the swim, calories burned and so on. Unlike regular glasses, case the new device is significantly thicker.

Inside fit Board for information processing, sensors to read various indicators, battery, as well as a special projector that displays on glass smart gadget with all the necessary information. It is on the glass. No screens in smart glasses no. Well, the controls are placed on the lateral side of the device.

To FORM our team has spent many years creating a variety of wearable devices for outdoor sports such as snowboarding, running and Cycling, says founder and CEO Dan FORM Eisenhardt. When we began to develop goggles four years ago, we knew that it would be much more difficult than everything that we have done before. Large-scale testing, which we conducted last year shows that we have achieved this goal. About using FORM speak positively both Amateurs and professionals.

How to work smart glasses

If not strongly to go into the working principles of the sensors themselves of the gadget, then everything is arranged quite simple. Miniature projector shines on the side of one of the glasses. It’s a reflection he sees in the glasses. So something like “augmented reality”, only “wgate” to uzkospetsializirovannye functions for swimming. It is nice that the glasses work in monochrome mode and no coloured “whistles” on the screen is not visible. So nothing will distract from training. Of course, there is synchronization with Android or iOS.

The battery in the glasses, according to the manufacturer, is enough for 16 hours of battery life. Maximum immersion depth is 10 meters. To order the device on the official website. The cost of the gadget is 199 USD. That, in our opinion, quite expensive if you just go to the pool to swim. But if you do swimming professionally, the device is clearly worth paying attention to.
