The technologically advanced smart glasses have leveraged decades of Kopin’s experience in heads-up displays and other technologies. Providing a more natural way of communicating, SOLOS are designed to keep the wearer safe, focused, present and more fully aware. “SOLOS lets me keep my head up to stay safe and enjoy the view with the data I need, where I want it. I’ve also started enjoying music and phone calls through the onboard speakers while keeping my ears free and fully aware of my surroundings when I am out on the road,” said Phil Gaimon, SOLOS athlete and trailblazing cyclist.

Smart Glasses With Ultimate Communication & Performance

Introducing a new way of communicating that eliminates the gaps between data and performance, SOLOS offer new features specifically integrated following consumer and athlete feedback. These include design and lifestyle elements that elevate any riding or running experience. Integrated music and voice control, group communication, interchangeable lenses and an adjustable nose piece for added customisation, among others, are all features SOLOS now features in an improved sleek and lightweight design.

“SOLOS enables athletes to be focused on their sports while accessing key performance data, communicating with others and even enjoying music.”

The thing that makes a pair of SOLOS stand our from the rest is their ability to remove the need to look down, break stride and lose focus; athletes can see and hear information right at the moment. “SOLOS smart glasses were designed to balance style, comfort and function, and provide the maximum value to athletes,” said Ernesto Martinez, Director of Performance Wearables. “SOLOS enables athletes to be focused in their sports while accessing key performance data, communicating with others and even enjoying music. From the early support of elite Olympic athletes to the growing adoption by a broader athletic community, now selling it to aspiring athletes, this product aims to positively impact the future of sports technology and the evolving field of Augmented Reality.”
