Chinese phone maker Huawei just brought back to the market a product that doesn’t have much to do with smartphones, yet claims to be “smart”. We’re indeed talking about the Huawei EyeWear Smart Glasses Limited Edition produced in collaboration with the brand Gentle Monster.
Huawei EyeWear Smart Glasses Limited Edition Back on Sale
Huawei’s EyeWear smart glasses line was first announced in April of this year. The series included five models: Smart East Moon 01, Smart Jack Bye 01, Smart South Side 01, Smart Alio 01, and Smart Alio C1. With the first two being smart sunglasses and the last three being smart prescription glasses. Price wise, the South Side 01 were announced for 1999 yuan ($280), meanwhile the remaining four would cost 2499 yuan ($355).
Moving forward to today, the smart glasses Smart East Moon 01, Smart Alio 01 and Smart Alio C1 finally go on sale; costing as much as it was announced back in April.
Huawei and Gentle Monster’s smart glasses use a minimalist design without any physical buttons. The antenna, charging module, dual microphone, chipset, speaker and battery are integrated in the frames. Additionally it’s possible to replace the lenses later on.
The glasses have a built-in voice assistant, and the user can answer calls by double-tapping the frame. At the same time, Huawei’s smart glasses also come with a charging bag. So you can just place the glasses inside the bag to wirelessly charge them. They’re also the world’s first device to support NFC contactless charging.
Finally, Huawei’s EyeWear smart glasses are IP67 waterproof and dustproof. They supports Bluetooth and have an USB Type-C port for charging. Users get a 20 hours standby time while with calling/music time autonomy goes down to 2.5 hours.
