Huawei introduces new smart glasses with audio technology – News

With the Gentle Monster Eyewear II, Huawei will launch its second smart glasses on November 6. The gadget, equipped with a speech assistant and loudspeakers in the frame, will receive a target price of 329 euros.

Contrary to what you would expect with ‘smart glasses’, the Gentle Monster Eyewear II does not work with augmented reality (AR) or other visual gadgets. The smart thing is in the Smart Interaction function with which you can request useful information at any time via a voice command, without having to take out your smartphone every time.

Listen to music

It is not immediately clear from the specifications which voice assistant Huawei has integrated in the new glasses. The Google Assistant is excluded, as the Chinese manufacturer is not allowed to integrate apps and services from Google into new electronics due to an American trade embargo. It may therefore be Celia, Huawei’s own voice assistant. Incidentally, the gadget automatically increases or decreases the volume based on ambient sounds.

According to Huawei, the smart glasses are also very suitable for listening to music. A few swipes on the temples are all it takes to check your playlist. Songs will automatically pause when the sensors detect you take the glasses off and resume if you put them back on within three minutes. The baked-in battery delivers up to five hours of uninterrupted music and supports wireless fast charging technology.

To connect, all you have to do is gently press the frame on the left temple. A double tap on the left side activates the voice assistant.
