Amazon’s V2 Smart Glasses Have An Upgraded Battery & Better Sound

Nov 20, 2020

Category: Tech

The first Echo Frames were a “Day 1 Editions” device exclusive to Amazon customers who received an invitation for trial — effectively a beta version of what you see before you. And while the reception at the time was lukewarm at best, the Seattle-based tech giant has since updated the product in order to make it on par with its other innovative offerings.

Like the original Echo Frames, version 2 comes with in-built Alexa connectivity, enabling all of the functionality of Amazon’s helpful smart assistant, but with the added benefit of covert, hands-free prompting. What’s more, because of their open-ear audio functionality, the glasses maximize the sound directed toward your ears while also keeping the noise level down for those around you. When it comes to their production upgrades, the new Echo Frames gain both improved sound quality and longer battery life. For instance, they can now adjust their volume in response to the ambient noise, optimizing your audio experience to your environment. And with over 2 hours of talk time and media playback (or 4 hours of nonstop listening) over their 14-hour charge, they’re more useful than ever. They’ll become available for $250 starting December 10th in Classic Black, Horizon Blue, and Modern Tortoise colorways.

Purchase: $250
