Meet your new coach, the Oakley Radar Pace. Yep, not a per­son with an over-sized mous­tache and a stop­watch, but a pair of badass-look­ing sun­glasses. But th­ese aren’t or­di­nary sun­nies, the Radar Pace are smart shades rock­ing voice con­trol, fit­ness sen­sors and a vir­tual trainer. A col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Oakley, Intel and de­sign spe­cial­ist Lux­ot­tica, the glasses of­fer real-time, voice-ac­ti­vated coach­ing dur­ing work­outs. In­te­grated mo­tion, hu­mid­ity and prox­im­ity sen­sors are used to track move­ment, and you can pair the glasses with ex­ter­nal de­vices to mon­i­tor met­rics such as heart rate. The Radar Pace will ad­just your train­ing zones as you im­prove and au­to­mat­i­cally make up for missed work­outs, help­ing you stay on track and hit your fit­ness goals. Dur­ing a run you can ask, “OK Radar, how’s my pace?” and the vir­tual coach will tell you how you’re do­ing and whether you need to speed up or slow down. The sun­glasses are IPX5 rated for wa­ter re­sis­tance, too, and built to with­stand im­pacts. And Oakley’s Prizm Road lenses are on hand to en­hance de­tail and fine-tune colours. After your work­out is done, your data will be avail­able to view on the com­pan­ion smart­phone app. Wear­able tech just hit a new level. Price $589.95 Avail­able Now URL au.oakley.com
