What a world we live in. I’m just taking a first “look” (ahem) at my new Earthbound prescription sunglasses with audio and bluetooth. With these Lucyd Audio Sunglasses I can speak to ChatGPT and ChatGPT will respond back to me in my ears. I could have used this amazing breakthrough technology back in college! I can listen to music, or podcasts or whatever directly from the glasses as well.
The Lucyd Lyte Earthbound sunglasses are a game-changer in the world of wearable technology, blending the classic aesthetics of optical eyewear with cutting-edge Bluetooth audio capabilities. They embody a fusion of style and functionality, adhering strictly to the design principles of traditional eyewear while seamlessly incorporating advanced features. What sets Earthbound apart is its commitment to maintaining the elegance of classic sunglasses, enhanced with the best-in-class touch controls, microphones, lenses, and battery life. It’s a perfect example of technology and design walking hand in hand, offering a stylish accessory that doubles as a high-tech gadget.
Perhaps the most striking feature of the Earthbound is its ability to make ChatGPT handsfree and voice-accessible, a boon for those who prefer voice commands over typing. Users simply need to download the Lucyd app on their iOS or Android device, and they can start interacting with ChatGPT through Siri on their iPhone or iPad. This integration provides a seamless, convenient way to engage with ChatGPT, making it more accessible than ever. Additionally, with dual high-capacity lithium-ion batteries offering 12 hours of continuous music or talk time, the Earthbound sunglasses ensure that you stay connected and entertained throughout your day, whether it’s for work or leisure. With such longevity, users who listen to a few hours of music or podcasts daily would only need to charge their glasses 1-3x a week, adding to the convenience that these smart sunglasses bring to everyday life.
Stay Tuned (so to speak)
I’m just getting started with these. First time I’ve ever had to read a manual and watch tutorial videos to figure out how to use my sunglasses. Not sure but I wonder if you can make calls with them too. That would be a fantastic feature. EDIT: YOU CAN! I just made a call and had an entire conversation with audio to/from my sunglasses. Game changer.
I’ll post a full review in a few weeks after I’ve put them through the full review process on the golf course, the ski resort, and the mountain bike trail.
I’m near sighted, which is great for writing golf blogs and programming code, but it is not good for golf. Without prescription glasses I can’t track the ball or see where it finished beyond around 150 yards. Lately I hit it so sideways I need prescription shades, and prescription antidepressants to make it through a golf round. Fortunately in the sunglasses department I’ve been sporting some new unbreakable prescription sunglasses from Reks Optics.
Reks frames are the bend but not break kind, which is great. Drop them. Sit on them. Bend them. No issues. Reks is so confident in their product, they offer a 24 month replacement guarantee.
Reks offers two lines of frames: Leisure and Active. The leisure line has styles which are similar to the Ray Bans Wayfarer as well as an aviator style. The sport line has “wrap around” type sports sunglasses, similar to one might find from Oakley sunglasses.
Reks lenses come in Chromalux, Lumolux, and Solux models. All Reks lenses are treated to resist dirt and are scratch resistant. Optical grade polycarbonate material in the lenses provides high quality an superior durability.
Since I have two pair of “sports” style prescription sunglasses, I decided to have some fun and go with the Leisure line for my Reks shades. I love the Wayfarer Ray Ban design, so I went with the Reks “Seafarer.” Ordering was easy. I picked out the frame style and the lens style. I went the the Reks HD Trivex polarized lenses with anti-reflective coating. Loved the look of the mirror-red. During the order I attached my RX. Within two weeks my awesome shades arrived.
A day in the life with Reks
Today I started off around 8:30am at a local golf tournament. The sun was shining and the temps around 90 degrees by the afternoon. My Reks kept the glare down while keeping the colors and details of the course up. Since my Reks are prescription, I’m able to see the ball even hundreds of yards away.
Following the tournament I spent some time at the pool with the family. Loved the feel and comfort of the Reks while basking in the sun relaxing after a tough day at the tournament. I even swim with them on sometimes. All in all today I probably had the Reks’s on for 10 hours!
Reks prescription sunglasses are stylish, fun, durable, and extremely affordable compared to other prescription sunglasses. I’m talking 1/3 to 1/2 the normal cost. If you don’t need prescription like I do, Reks models are priced between $30-$60. A very affordable proposition.
Father’s Day is coming up quickly. Dad would love some Reks sunglasses.
