Huawei launches new smart glasses powered by Harmony OS

Huawei has launched a new pair of smart glasses in China, powered by their Harmony operating system. The design includes a removable front bezel and supports simultaneous connection of two devices.

Dubbed “Huawei Smart Glass”, the product is available in three types of frames: a classic frame, a sleek pilot frame and a retro round frame, with a range of color options. The glasses feature 128mm square ‘super-slim wide-range’ stereo speakers on the temple for music streaming and hands-free calling. To reduce sound leakage, it features a reverse sound field acoustic system, which also helps reduce sound pickup outdoors.

Sporting the Harmony operating system, the smart glasses allow the simultaneous connection of two devices, where you can switch between the two with a one-touch setting. Its touch-sensitive controls help you take phone calls, play or pause music, and even change audio channels with the flick of your finger.

The glasses also have a cervical spine health feature, where the sensors inside constantly check for poor posture (position of the head in relation to the spine). It also tracks how long a person has their head bowed to provide early warning of spinal health risks.

When fully charged, these glasses can last up to 16 hours, while still providing 4.5 hours of talk time and 6 hours of music playback. It also has a wired magnetic charging system, real-time alerts and is rated IPX 4 for sweat and splash resistance.

The Huawei Smart Glass is available in China in two variations – clear glasses at 1699 Yuan (around Rs 20,120), which dark glasses will cost you at 1899 Yuan (around Rs 22,500).
