Until today SmartWatch e smartband they made it the boss, but for some weeks now they have been trying to revive a product that had tried to make smart a few years ago, but which unfortunately has not had the desired success, or glasses. In today's review, in fact, we're going to analyze the new ones smart glasses di Huawei, Or the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear, made precisely in collaboration with the famous South Korean company which has depopulated so much China. How will they behave during our review? Let's find out together!
Review Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear
Unboxing - Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear
The sales package is made of white cardboard and is very accurate. Inside we find the following equipment:
- Leather case (or eco-leather);
- Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear;
- USB cable - USB Type-C;
- instruction manual.
Design and construction
Let's start right away from the design because we talk about a couple of smart glasses, but with an extremely discreet look. In fact, unlike its direct competitors (Bose), we do not see thick and flashy rods. However, despite the model SMART JACKBYE-01 is unisex, his look turns out to be more suitable for a female audience given the various details and the size of the lenses.
Indeed, i Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear measure 155.13 x 58.25 x 29 millimeters for a total weight of 45.6 grams. This data, therefore, should be taken into consideration if you have a small face.
The glasses are made entirely in plastic and the frame seems flex enough, but in spite of everything they seemed to me resistant to slight bumps and scratches. Furthermore, we also find one IP67 certification which makes them resistant to water and dust, although we do not recommend immersing them in water.
Speaking of the product in its classic use I must say that the lenses I'm from high quality. In moments of stronger light the glasses can be of great help and guarantee an excellent view. Wearability is good and does not bother us, although they are a bit too big for me.
Along the bars we find two microphones and two speakers, not to mention that the surface supports touch controls, which make the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear a smart and cutting-edge product.
Connectivity, audio quality and operation
I Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear own the Bluetooth 5.0 and can interface to the smartphone through the application AI Life di Huawei. Once the first pair is made, the glasses will connect very quickly to your device, it will be enough to open the case and the game will be done!
Through the app we can see the charge status of the Gentle Monster and of the leather case (or eco-leather), update the glasses and set the shortcuts for each bar:
- Play / pause / call: double tap on one of the two small bars;
- Google Assistant / Siri: double tap on the other.
I commands are transposed very well even if for the first few times you will have to get used to it, as it can happen that you are not very precise (and therefore do not take the touch). Moreover, when we go to take off your glasses la reproduction si stop instantly to resume only when we wear them again.
We also talk about sound quality as i Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear they return a suitable volume to isolate us from the chatter of the people around us and enough not to remain totally isolated from the surrounding environment. So if you are making a call in the car you will be able both to talk to your interlocutor and to hear an eventual ambulance behind you.
So if you think you will find a product that can replace normal headphones then you will have to think it over before buying them. Despite this I don't think it's absolutely a weakness, since the use for which they are designed is precisely this. But what could play against him is that, with the maximum volume, anyone at 1 meter from you can hear your phone conversation, effectively canceling privacy.
With regard to the quality le frequencies I'm well balanced and listening is enjoyable. I must say that it was fun to use them on the subway and see the stunned face of people once they realized that the music came straight out of their glasses.
Finally, on board we find two microphones with lots of reduction of environmental noise. These behave quite well during calls and our interlocutor will hear us clearly and clearly. I tried to entertain conversations in heavily ventilated moments and on the other hand they noticed the sound of the wind, but not in such an accentuated way as not to understand the words spoken. The only negative part is that if you have people chatting next to you, your interlocutor will also hear those.
The capacity of the battery under the mount is not specified on the official website Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear, But the leather / eco-leather case he owns one from 2200 mAh.
Autonomy is around 2 hours of music playback with maximum volume, but obviously varies according to your type of use until you get to around 2 hours and minutes 30.
Recharging your glasses is really simple because you just need to put them back in the case, as they support the wireless charging. Once it has been downloaded, simply connect it to a smartphone power supply with the appropriate USB cable - USB Type-C supplied.
Conclusions - Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear
Before summing up it is also necessary to analyze the price sales, in fact, i Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear are sold as a list 399 €, but on Amazon you can find them already at 279 €, a figure certainly more appealing than the initial one. In fact, in this case we are going to collide almost on equal terms with the main competitors, or glasses Angry (available at 196 € su Amazon, list price a 229), which, however, do not have the advantage of carrying the signature of Gentle Monster and a 'aesthetics more like gods classic glasses (although they are a bit feminine).
In short, we are approaching what will most likely be the future and how each beginning is normal that now i prices are still so tall. Today they are an intriguing product, but they are there several factors to consider, including lack of privacy in the call and unisex style. For the rest if you have a good budget available and if you want to be an early adopter, then it could be the news for you!
