Amazon has been able to put their Echo speaker technology into just about everything – from speakers to thermostats. They have also added the technology to the Echo Frames Smart Audio Glasses (2nd Gen). You can get them now as an early Amazon Prime Day deal and enjoy a unique way to listen to your music, audiobooks, and phone calls.
These smart glasses are prescription-ready while also providing the same hands-free access to Alexa as other Echo products. They are lightweight and include flexible hinges and adjustable temple tips while being IPX4 splash-resistant. The sound is directed to your ears through open-ear audio. You can adjust the volume so that only you will hear while also blocking out the other sounds around you.
Through your Echo Frames Smart Audio Glasses, you can play music, audiobooks, or the news, make and send calls and announcements, control your smart home devices, and hear your reminders and alarms. You can also listen to audio from your smartphone and even get access to other voice assistants: Google Assistant and Siri.
The battery life in the smart glasses will provide more than two hours of talk time, interactions with Alexa, and media playback in a 14-hour day. Alternatively, you can get up to four hours of nonstop playback on a full charge. The microphones are designed to respond only to your voice and can be turned off completely by double-pressing a button.
Take $75 off the price of these smart glasses in either Classic Black, Horizon Blue, or Modern Tortoise, and pay just $174.99.
