Smart glasses have gained popularity off late and several companies are jumping into this game. While Bose gave a twist to its original Frames and launched three second-generation models, Amazon is in the market with its second-generation Echo Frames. Plenty of other companies are now jumping into this business with the latest one being Razer. Like most recent options offered by different companies, the Razer Anzu has integrated audio speakers in the frame of glasses. They are mounted just near the temple area. The Anzu glasses are available in two designs – round and square. These designs have been launched in two different sizes options – small and large. The frames will cost around USD 200.
The Razer Anzu feels a little heavier when compared to the Echo Frames. The small size option of the glasses weighs around 43 grams and the larger one is around 48 grams. Echo Frames are much lighter when compared to it and weigh just 31 grams. The other feature on offer by Razer Anzu glasses is that it includes lenses that can filter 35 percent blue lights. It also offers a set of polarized sunglasses lenses and they are easily swappable. The smart glasses are integrated with 16 mm speaker drivers. They are positioned in a way that directions sound toward the open end of your years.
The company says that the smart glasses are splash-proof or IPX4 water-resistant. This means it can be very comfortably used while running or workouts. The best part is that they don’t cover your ears and therefore allow you to hear traffic. Interestingly, the true wireless design used in the glasses allows speaker units on the left and right sides to work separately from each other. Though this gives users more flexibility and comfort, it also means that both the ends of the glasses need to be charged separately. On a single charge, the battery is expected to give up to five hours of usage tie at moderate volume levels. The tap gestures allow users to answer phone calls, change song tracks, and even activate Google Assistant. The gestures allow Razer Anzu to shut down as soon the glasses are folded. They quickly pair to the last connected device as soon as you open the glasses.
