One of the first ‘wearables’ out there wasn’t developed by Apple, Google, or Microsoft – but by Oakley. In the early aughts the sunglasses company came up with the bright idea of putting an mp3 player in a pair of their sunglasses. Unfortunately, other than gaining the favor of Dog, The Bounty Hunter, the glasses didn’t get a whole lot of traction. Now more than a decade later, Oakley is revisiting the idea with the release of the Radar Pace. This time around, however, Oakley is looking to do a whole lot more than just deliver sweet tunes.

Thanks to a partnership with Intel, the brand has produced a pair of sunglasses that not only protect your eyes, but work as a fitness tracker, a motivator, and a coach. The sunglasses measures your power, speed, cadence, distance, time, through a variety of workouts and are equipped with an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and can measure pressure, humidity, and proximity all while giving you realtime feedback about your workouts. It is essentially like having Siri’s really fit cousin pushing you to be that much better. Living in the future rocks. Prices are set at $450. [Purchase]
