The Oakley RAZRWIRE Sunglasses
Well, it looks like Oakley has done it again! This time, with a little help from their friends at Motorola. For some time now, Oakley has been striving to combine personal communications technology with their quality eyewear. Their latest and greatest product, the RAZRWIRE, comes fully equipped with the latest Bluetooth technology and is sure to please even the most jaded techno-geek.
Simply put, the RAZRWIRE is a combination of stylish Oakley sunglasses and a Bluetooth headset from Motorola that stands to provide the user with unparalleled communications mobility. These glasses are the epitome of wearable technology, seamlessly combining both style and function.
The frames are constructed from Oakley's proprietary O-Luminum, an alloy that is up to 40% lighter than Titanium. They come equipped with spring-loaded hinges which provide an excellent, secure fit. As with other Oakley shades, the lenses are crafted from their patented Plutonite. These lenses filter 100% of UV and blue light, both of which are very harmful for your eyes.
The RAZRWIRE incorporates Motorola's third generation Bluetooth technology, ensuring that these glasses will be compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled cell phones and devices. Users are able to carry on a telephone conversation even when upwards of 30ft. away from their phone. The headset can be worn on either side of the glasses.
Motorola's Bluetooth module is incredibly well incorporated into the overall design aesthetic of these glasses. The controls are extremely easy to use, with two volume buttons and an individual button for managing incoming and outgoing calls. While the adoption of headsets for cell phones has not been particularly well-received by the general public, these glasses may allow consumers to bridge that gap without compromising their fashion sense.
While most Oakley stores will be stocked, these shades are not yet available in most stores. You can, however, locate a pair via our sponsored links. They retail for approximately 0USF, which includes the glasses, Bluetooth module, and a charging unit. They come in three distinct frame/lens color combinations – Platinum/Gold Iridium, Pewter/Black Iridium, and Mercury/Gray.
This project has evolved into an amazing opportunity for Oakley. They are now extremely well poised to enter into the consumer electronics market. While interest in a product such as this is generally limited to chic and stylish geeks, early studies have shown that there is great mainstream appeal. With a highly recognizable brand name and cutting edge technology, Oakley could well be the new 300lb gorilla on the block.
