Razer has announced its new Anzu Smart glasses, which are aimed at Amazon’s Echo Frames. Like the latest in smart glasses, the new Razer Anzu integrates audio speakers right into the frame of the glasses near the temple area.
The Anzu glasses are priced at $ 199.99 (approximately Rs 14,600) and come in two styles, a rectangular frame and a round frame. Each of these designs will continue to be available in both small and large sizes.
Razer will also offer two sets of lenses as part of the Anzu package. This includes a normal pair of lenses and another pair that blocks 35 percent blue light. Razer also bundles a pair of sunglass lenses with 99 percent UV protection.
Razer Anzu with TWS audio
A new true wireless design implemented in the Razer Anzu allows the left and right speaker units to be completely separated. In this way, according to the brand, the frame can provide more comfort and flexibility for the user.
However, this also means that you have to charge both ends of the glasses separately. For this purpose, there are charging pin connections on each bracket area. There are 16mm drivers at each end that also support touch-based typing gestures. With these you can change tracks, take calls and activate the Google Assistant.
Speaking of gestures, the Razer Anzu also turns itself off when you fold the glasses. As soon as you open the glasses, they will quickly pair with the last connected device.
Integration with Lensabi for prescription lenses
For the users who need prescription lenses, Razer has this covered. The brand has partnered with Lensabi to get a 15 percent discount available to Anzu buyers. While this still means you’ll end up paying a decent amount, it’s the only option if you’re looking to add corrective lenses to the Razer Anzu.
