Engo Eyewear Unveils Smart Sunglasses Designed to Enhance Athlete Performance
November 2, 2021
Stylish, Lightweight Sunglasses Powered by ActiveLook® Technology Feature High Definition Optics to View Performance Data Without Obstructing Vision; Best-in-Class Power Management Provides up to 12 Hours of Use with Unmatched Brightness
BOSTON, Mass., Nov. 2, 2021 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Engo Eyewear, a leading manufacturer of lightweight and functional smart glasses, today announced the launch of its new line of sports glasses that meet the needs of endurance athletes. Created for cyclists, runners, triathletes and other long-distance athletes, users can better control their pace and manage their intensity by viewing real-time data displayed in the lenses while keeping their eyes on the road. Engo Eyewear’s industry-leading power management also provides up to 12 hours of use and automatically adjusts the display brightness with changing light conditions.
Beneath its stylish and lightweight exterior, Engo Eyewear is powered by ActiveLook technology, which seamlessly integrates state-of-the-art AMOLED microdisplays with high-definition optics to project the user’s critical performance data directly into their field-of-view. This is achieved without obstructing vision–even in low light conditions.
“Engo Eyewear is a rare example of wickedly stylish technology that elevates the athletic experience and can help to enhance sport performance,” said CEO Eric Marcellin-Dibon. “Its bold, refined design matches its incredible technology, so athletes no longer have to choose between fashion and function. We’re proud of the praise we’ve received from the tech industry, but we’re even more pleased by how enthusiastically athletes have responded to this game-changing product.”
Engo Eyewear pairs with bike computers, GPS watches, smart phones and other Bluetooth-enabled devices to display the performance data most important to the athlete. With Engo Eyewear’s companion mobile app, users can personalize their viewing experience and display details such as heart rate, elapsed time, speed, power, distance and elevation. Touchless operation allows users to wave their hand in front of the lenses to toggle through different data displays while on the move.
“Over the course of my pro cycling career and now coaching athletes, I have tried a variety of technologies to track and monitor performance. Nothing has come close to what Engo Eyewear has developed,” said Simon Kessler, former professional road cyclist and accomplished coach. “I’m extremely impressed with the functionality offered by Engo Eyewear’s new sports glasses. The ability to view performance data in real-time without looking down is not only efficient, but also much safer than other technologies on the market.”
Smart Lenses Offer Enhanced Performance
The Photochromic NXT® lenses instantly adjust the display brightness with changing light conditions, providing razor-sharp vision and 100% ultraviolet protection. Additionally, with ActiveLook technology users can precisely monitor their efforts to get the most from their training while not having to glance down at a watch or power meter device.
Designed for All-Day Comfort
Engo Eyewear’s lightweight frames are impact resistant and made with a high quality 3D print technology using a polyamide material. The flexible thermoplastic temples and nose piece are easy to adjust, and Engo Eyewear’s 100% fit guarantee ensures a comfortable, secure fit, along with a clear view of the user’s data.
