The latest product of the ‘smart technology’ trend is Radar Pace, which is a smart eyewear by Oakley and Intel.

According to Oakley’s website, Radar Pace uses Oakley’s sleek eyewear design and Intel’s Real Speech technology to create the perfect pair of personal training sunglasses. Radar Pace is, in essence, a personal trainer, in which it constructs custom training programs and coaches the user in actual time by answering user questions and tracking heart rate, pace, and speed.

Ryan Saylor, Oakley’s Vice President of Advanced Product Development, said in a statement that, “One of the biggest benefits is the accountability – the coach being there with the athletes to help get the most out of every workout.”

Radar Pace works by using normal-looking sunglasses with the special addition of a microphone and earbuds that all coordinate with a free mobile app. This system allows the user to receive data about their training sessions in real-time, not after the session has completed, unlike most smart technology.

Intel’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of New Technology Group, Josh Walden, said in a statement that, “Through our collaboration, we have challenged each other to reinvent what is possible… The end result is a powerful and innovative product that combines Intel technology and engineering expertise with Oakley’s sleek, lightweight design favorited by athletes around the world.”

Radar Pace is now being sold in select Oakley stores and online on the company’s website for $449.00.
