Fashionable design and simple shape
When it comes to smart glasses, you may think of something like Google Glass, which has a digital flavor, but HUAWEI X Gentle Monster Eyewear has taken on a stylish design style. The packing box is whole white, the design is very simple, Gentle Monster drawer type opens the way to give a kind of ceremonial feeling.
The glasses case also inherits the classic design of Gentle Monster, a leather glasses case that looks cool and slightly larger. Unlike ordinary glasses boxes, it has a built-in rechargeable battery that can charge internal glasses directly, similar to headphones such as the AirPods.
There are Bluetooth pairing keys and power indicators at the bottom of the box. The first pairing requires an operation button, and the power indicator shows the current power in different colors such as red, yellow and green.
This experience is the sunglasses version, model SMART JACKBYE-01, which maintains a high similarity to the JACKBYE series of sunglasses in appearance. In addition, there are four models for SMART EASTMOON-01, SMART ALIO-01, SMART ALIO-C1 and SMART SOUTHSIDE-01,. It is worth mentioning that the latter three products belong to optical glasses, which provides a wealth of choices for different user needs.
The SMART JACKBYE-01 frame is made of black plate as a whole, the connecting part is mainly metal, and the side is marked with the Gentle Monster logo, these are the classic Gentle Monster design elements. The overall weight is only 45.6g, supporting IP67 grade dustproof and waterproof, so it is quite portable.
On this basis, speakers and microphones have been incorporated into the lens legs of the glasses, but the overall design has not changed much as a result. Due to the absence of cool techs to the lens, the battery capacity is 85mAh. So overall its weight control is very good, although not too geek, but as a fashion glasses to wear is also very suitable.
Bluetooth headset in the shape of glasses
Although the design takes the fashion route, but the inner part, HUAWEI X Gentle Monster Eyewear is obviously different from the ordinary glasses, the first use needs to carry on the Bluetooth pairing on the mobile phone, then you can realize the magic place.
First of all, the glasses themselves support three functions, including playing music, answering the phone, calling the voice assistant, these functions should be achieved by tapping on both sides of the glasses leg.
For example, to play and pause music, you can simply tap your finger on the left twice (the music will be automatically paused when you take off your glasses while playing music), and you can answer the call by tapping the right side twice. You can also reset the manipulations on both sides according to your preferences to make shortcuts easier.
Due to the use of loudspeakers rather than bone conduction, the glasses maintain a wealth of sound information when the music is played, but also can talk normally, the effect is good. But such a design will inevitably leak, and it may not be easy to notice outdoors, but in quieter situations, people around you will hear what you play (the louder the volume, the more obvious), and you should pay attention to it when you use it.
Although co-branded, HUAWEI X Gentle Monster Eyewear's voice assistant is not limited to Huawei phones, but supports Android phones with voice assistants and the Siri, which comes with iPhone, which means the glasses are more widely available. However, if the phone itself does not support voice assistant, there is no way to use this feature.
As a smart wearable device, the product has a mediocre performance, listening to music for 2.5 hours on a single charge, but given its light size and the extra eight hours of power in the glasses case. This product is nice to wear even as ordinary sunglasses.
The role of HUAWEI X Gentle Monster Eyewear smart glasses is similar to daily glasses + Bluetooth headphones, the overall experience is good, the design is also out of the feeling of fashion and youth, for people who want to taste fresh will be a new choice. At present, there are 5 kinds of HUAWEI X Gentle Monster Eyewear smart glasses, the starting price of optical glasses is 1999RMB, and the starting price of sunglasses is 2499RMB.
