Everysight smart AR glasses praised for le Tour collaboration

Everysight’s Raptor AR Smartglasses have been lauded for their partnership with NBC/NBCSN for technological innovations in broadcast.

NBC Sports’ coverage of the Tour de France featured Christian Vande Velde filming his ride and capturing his stats, including speed and distance, using Raptor, earning it a Sports Emmy Award nomination.

Overlaying sharp, high-res-yet-transparent information, Raptor AV glasses display heart rate, cadence, speed, power, distance and more to riders easily. Raptor event delivers navigation, HD camera, speakers and more.

Wearable tech expectations have dwindled after initial optimistic predictions. Products like Intel-backed Recon Jet sunglasses have been shelved, but there is still plenty of hype around, particularly in the ‘smart clothing‘ category.

Everysight has reduced its MSRP for the 2019 season (£649 to £549 in the UK, for the 16GB version).
