Huawei will launch its second model of smart glasses, the Gentle Monster Eyewear II, on 6 November. The connected wearable comes with a voice-controlled digital assistant and built-in speakers and will sell for a recommend price of EUR 329 (AED 1400).
This is Huawei's second collaboration with the Korean eyewear brand, and the new model upgrades the semi-open speaker to optimize sound for taking calls and listening to music without sound leakage. The glasses feature the same technology as its predecessor. The only difference is that it sports a new design and comes with a redesigned carrying case.
The voice assistant can be used even without the need to connect a smartphone, and the glasses come with Bluetooth 5.2 and support for NFC wireless charging directly in their case. Huawei said the battery supports up to five hours of music on a single charge.
In addition, thanks to proximity sensors, the Huawei glasses automatically recognize when worn and removed, and automatically play or pause music playback.
The glasses closely resemble a standard pair of glasses with thicker arms that house the sensors and controls. They are sold as frames only, without lenses, which must be acquired by the customer from an optician.
