Oakley Airwave Goggles: Become the Robo Skier You’ve Always Wanted to Be

by Range

I have to admit that I didn’t think that heads-up display goggles would be initially be marketed to snowboarders, but I now look forward to having a HUD in my everyday eyewear, or on my motorcycle helmet.

The snow-sport focused Oakley Airwave Goggles have a little prism at the bottom right of your peripheral vision that displays useful information. You can see GPS/navigation routes, buddy tracking to find your friends with goggles, or friends who don’t have them but are running the app, as well as music controls, speed and jump analytics, and more.

You can even pair them to your smartphone and view incoming calls and texts. All of these features are controlled via a wrist remote, and the companion app will work on Android or iOS.

The HUD is perceived as a 14-inch screen that is five feet away, so refocusing of the eye isn’t necessary. The goggles have built-in GPS and accelerometers, so your data can be stored in them when your phone runs out of juice. The goggles are being launched today, and will sell for $599 (USD) at the Oakley Store.

    So how do these compare to the recon goggles that have been around for a while now, I definitely like the oakleys look better, so how’s the software reliability, and will they strap a camera to it like the recon’s?

    The Oakley AirWave utilizes Recon Instr.’s HUD unit and you can connect your Contour camera to it.
