ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced that its Smart Swim™ Smart Glasses product, has launched for sale on Amazon for $499 and on the Vuzix' website.
Developed by Vuzix Labs, the Company's rapid development product and engineering division, Smart Swim™ is a heads-up display for swimmers that provides workout status and training information in real-time, enabling uninterrupted swimming activities. It is the world's first advanced and fully enabled smart glasses device that attaches to a swimmer's favorite swim goggles. It received two CES 2020 Innovation Awards.
Vuzix worked closely with swimmers and coaches to develop this smart glasses solution which measures lap times, displays distance covered and downloads workouts. Displaying lap times in front of the eye encourages swimmers to push harder and reconsider their technique, improving stamina by removing the need to keep stopping. Smart Swim connects swimmers with their coaches directly, so the same information is accessible to be analyzed. This is the new way to develop as an athlete. It also includes a video player to entertain swimmers during longer sessions in the water.
"Vuzix Smart Swim™ is more than a swimming coach or workout management tool as it transforms the world under the water with its built-in video player, replacing the mundane swimming pool tiles or dark lakes with your favorite TV show, movie or music video," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. "The product is also versatile as it is waterproofed and can be worn on many types of goggles, from swimming, mountaineering in a downpour, or kayaking down the rapids."
