A few days before the end of the year 2021, Huawei introduces a new product that surely not all of us expected, it is about the Huawei Eyewear, a smart glasses powered by HarmonyOS, the company’s flexible operating system. Its premise is to keep the user connected at all times and serve as an intelligent assistant.

Now that the trend for smart glasses is making a comeback, we can expect even more Huawei EyeWear-like offerings and competition. However, Huawei’s offering differs by being focused on ergonomics and device control rather than augmented reality.

Huawei EyeWear

Going into details, the Huawei EyeWear houses their electronic components in the temple and the heel, but the interesting thing is that they have a magnetic click to change frame. Huawei offers six different designs overall, including a set of aviator-style sunglasses. In addition, you can mount lenses formulated to meet the specific needs of the user, since as we mentioned earlier, their focus is not augmented reality.

To interact with them we can use the haptic surface found on the right rod. This is possible by means of slight touches and glides that serve to carry out different actions.

In short, the Huawei EyeWears put a smart assistant at your fingertips at all times. Thanks to the power of HarmonyOS they can send us notifications, give us reminders of our schedule and even read messages aloud. That’s right, they integrate stereo speakers that eliminate the need for headphones, allowing the user to listen to their favorite songs or podcasts, as well as make calls or send voice notes. It should be noted the use of bone conduction to prevent the sound from being heard by others.

Thanks to the integration with the Huawei operating system, it is possible to receive the weather forecast and updates in real time.

In another vein, Huawei’s smart glasses can be connected to two devices at the same time and the support of fast pairing via Bluetooth 5.2 is available to those with a Huawei phone, tablet or computer. However, to squeeze its full potential it will be necessary to have EMUI 10 or higher on those devices.

Lastly, smart glasses are equipped with a 85mAh battery. This is able to provide up to 4.5 hours of talk time and 6 hours of listening time.

Availability and price

Huawei EyeWear smart glasses are now available in China for a price of 1,699 yuan, which in exchange would be 235 euros. Its launch in other territories or markets has not yet been confirmed; But since Huawei’s previous glasses were sold in Europe and other regions, we were not surprised that it was only a matter of time before the arrival of the Huawei EyeWear was confirmed.
