Ahh! Thank goodness for technology. Gone are the days when you have to do things manually on your own. Now, in just a click of a mouse or a voice command, you can work on your important tasks. Let’s take this Oakley Radar Pace Glasses for example.

Do you envy people who have the discipline to run and do their daily cardio exercises religiously? Well, that’s what most of us feel. But the good news is, keeping track of your daily exercise won’t be a challenge for us anymore. Thanks to these glasses!

The Oakley Radar Pace Glasses

The Oakley Radar Pace glasses may look like the sports eyewear you wear every day – futuristic and sleek. But it’s not just that. This eyewear has a voice-activated coaching system. Now, how cool is that?

The system works with removable earphones, three microphones, and some internal sensors for real-time updates on your physical activities like running or cycling. The commands are delivered with the vocal prompt “Ok, Radar”. It’s something like Apple’s Siri, but is more geared towards your activities.

So, what’s the fuss?

The Oakley Radar Pace Glasses are paired with an application. Using the app, you can create your own training plan based on your fitness levels. It allows you to choose if you’re a beginner, advanced, or expert. The app also lets you choose among three programs you want to focus on – speed, maintenance, and endurance. It is so flexible, easy to use, and surprisingly, motivational.

For starters, you can start your interaction by asking Radar for your workout plan for the day. Radar will answer based on the plan you set on the app. It starts with the warm-up then your main exercise.

The glasses are easy to carry, comfortably light, ergonomic, and with minimal shaking or sliding. It also gives motivational advice along the way like “use shorter, quicker steps as you run.”

Missed a schedule? Worry no more. These glasses will automatically reschedule it so there’s no flaking out.

You can also take phone calls wirelessly from your pocket and easily play music through the earphones linked to the glasses. Not only that, you can also connect other devices like foot pods and heart rate monitors. Awesome, right?

Unfortunately, lenses aren’t available in prescription form, which is a major downfall. With a price of $490, it can deter some casual joggers. But for distance runners, who are the real target audience, they will seem to go down well.
