ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of video eyewear and smart glasses products in the consumer, enterprise and entertainment markets, is pleased to announce that it has launched pre-order programs for the new Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses, scheduled to start shipping commercially in Summer 2016. The new M300 represents the next evolution of Vuzix Smart Glasses design, born from real world user feedback and industry requirements culminating from over two years productive use of Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, which continue to ship for enterprise use. The M300 will come with significantly improved ergonomics and technical features, such as hot swappable batteries, Intel Atom processor running Android 6.0, and much more, all in a ruggedized form designed specifically for industrial use.

By taking advantage of this offer, enterprise users will begin earning ROI immediately with the Vuzix M100, maintaining their competitive advantage over rival companies which delay. Clients utilizing the industry leading M100 Smart Glasses now will be able to optimize work flows, gain user acclimation and capture unanticipated gains. Then, without losing any of the current benefits of the Vuzix Smart Glasses, they can add or transition to the M300, with all of its ergonomic and performance upgrades.
