Everysight Raptor smart glasses are a pair of augmented reality eyewear. Inside these glasses is a mini-projector with organic LED used in televisions, and they use less battery life, making the glasses usable for up to eight hours of riding.
The ‘Beam’ technology puts your chosen information and data directly into your field of vision.
Everysight smart glasses allow you to keep your eye on the road in front of you while still looking at some of your key stats.
The display isn’t that distracting. To look at the display, you need a quick shift in your focus and as soon as your focus is back to the road, you don’t notice the screen that much.
The Heads-Up Display (HUD) glasses are not only for data-driven people who like to keep a constant eye on their speed, distance, power, time, heart rate, RPM, navigation etc.
Inside the HUD glasses, there is an Android OS, 32GB of internal storage with 2GB of RAM, among other features found in a smartwatch and your handset, such as the gyroscope, accelerometer, barometer and proximity sensor.
The GPS allows you to see the routes you should be taking from point A to B, unless you want to be adventurous and get lost. If you are acquainted with Need For Speed or Forza Horizon, then you get the drill.
There is a camera that sits directly at the centre of the eye that gets the POV. You can take photos and quality HD videos with the camera.
If you have the 32GB version of the Raptors, you can record up to three hours of video footage in a single ride.
The Raptors smart glasses have a touch sensor on the right arm, which you can swipe and tap for various functions. The Voice activation option is also available.
There is a speaker, which can play music and give you various bits of information.
It is also a handy gear for fitness fanatics, as one can design their training session on the Everysight app, send it to the glasses and, follow their workouts.
You can customise various parts of the glasses, like where the data sits and the size of the display.
Unfortunately, you cannot do live segments, which would be a good additional feature for social media fans.
You can use these glasses for other outdoor activities like running. They weigh around 92 grams, so they should be comfortable for long-wear.
