Huawei and Smart Glasses

Will the consumer accept 'smart glasses', and what functions should they have. Interweaving these with fashion is a good idea.  This kind of wearable needs a opening signature effort.  Initial details are sketchy.   Pictures seem to show typical scale glasses.

Huawei’s Eyewear smartglasses aim to fuse fashion and tech   By Simon Hill in Digitaltrend

Huawei Eyewear smart glasses

Huawei just announced the fruits of its partnership with trendy South Korean glasses brand, Gentle Monster. The Huawei Eyewear smartglasses are designed to be stylish first and foremost, so they look like regular sunglasses or glasses. But they are packing some technology inside to enable you to make and take calls and to use a smart voice assistant. Huawei described them as a fusion of fashion and technology.

The sneak peek in Paris was very scant on details and there weren’t many tech specs revealed, but we know the new smartglasses are equipped with dual microphones and speakers so that you can take hands-free phone calls. We assume they hook up to your Huawei P30 Pro, or other smartphone, via Bluetooth. Huawei promised that its A.I. would reduce noise to give you crystal clear call quality.

We also learned that the Huawei Eyewear glasses are IP67 rated, which means they can be submerged in shallow water for a short time without sustaining long term damage. The glasses charge up wirelessly and use NFC to pair with the Gentle Monster case that ships with them. The case has a 2,200mAh battery inside.

An interesting presentation saw Hankook Kim, the Gentle Monster CEO, poke fun at the look of Google Glass and Snapchat Spectacles, as he talked up the stylish aesthetic of Huawei Eyewear. The new glasses seem to be co-branded and Huawei CEO, Richard Yu, came on stage sporting a pair, though he admitted they were too big minutes later..... "
