SOLOS SMART GLASSES HAVE LANDED. HERE’S OUR TAKE ON THE FRAMES FROM THE FUTURE.
The Solos smart glasses feature the world’s smallest optical module—the size of a human pupil—mounted on the wearer’s right-side lens. This tiny projector casts a 5-inch, virtual heads-up display that provides a continuous stream of workout metrics in high-res and crisp, full color. Pairing the glasses with the Solos smartphone app and a GPS-enabled watch lets you view your heart rate, pace, distance, and much more in real time—without ever taking your eyes off the road.
But here’s where the glasses truly shine—they can take this data, and actually harness it to guide your training. If you fall off pace on your ride, the glasses will indicate on the screen to speed up. You can set a goal time for a distance and the glasses will pace you to your desired finish time. You can get turn-by-turn directions on an unfamiliar route, and even have the glasses read them aloud to you. All of these features let athletes free up mental energy to hone in on their workouts, and not worry about staring down at a watch or Handlebar mounted screen.
