The Radar Pace marries Oakley’s experience in premium sports eye wear with the smarts of Intel.
The key feature, besides the premium lens, is really using the on board tech to offer in-the-moment real time voice activated coaching. For example you could ask “OK Radar, how’s my pace?” The eye wear would then reply with your current pace over the headphones. Say “Stop training”and the eye wear would cease tracking.
As your performance improves over time, the Radar Pace will also adapt dynamically by adjusting your training zones. While it doesn’t display stats like Garmin’s Varia Vision In-Sigh Display, Oakley’s Radar Pace collects and analyzes your personal performance data including heart rate, power output, speed, cadence, distance and time when connected to compatible sensors.
The sleek eye wear also features both ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity.
The temple of the eye wear features a touch pad that responds with taps and swipes; the main control for functions such as adjusting volume and music control. The tracked stats are then synced to the Radar Pace app for further analysis after workout.
