Amazon's Echo Frames with reality features starts shipping next week

Amazon’s Echo Frames strategy is to offer regular glasses that lack the visual augmented reality features of other smart glasses and have the Alexa voice assistant built in. If that sounds like a valuable addition to your life, you’re in luck.

The new third-generation Echo Frames are already available for pre-order on Amazon for a discounted price of $75. David Pierce of The Verge noted in a preview this fall that the main difference between the new frames isn’t just in features, but also in shape. The latest iteration is lighter and better balanced than its predecessor, and has more stylish and colorful options.

That’s a more important issue than looks, considering the only variants of the first-generation Echo Frames looked like drugstore reading glasses. The new Echo Frames also have slightly better battery life: they now last up to six hours on a full charge. The new model’s speakers produce three times more bass than the second-generation Echo Frames, and each set of Echo Frames has a small microphone built into it that can pick up the user’s voice (which Amazon says isn’t designed to pick up passersby) and communicate with Alexa.can communicate with Alexa. can communicate with her.

So you can call up playlists on the Echo Frame, turn on/off Alexa-enabled smart lights, play podcasts, call your mom, or just go crazy! The third-generation frame is priced at $269.99, but Amazon’s “Introductory Pricing” promotion offers an additional $75 discount to early buyers who pre-order the prescription-enabled version.

The blue-light-blocking Echo frames are discounted less, but the sunglasses are full price. Additionally, Amazon and Carrera’s partnership continues, and the third-generation Carrera Echo sunglasses are priced at $389.99 (but $314.99 for pre-orders). The Echo frame comes in five options, including blue round, black rectangular, black square, brown cat-eye, and gray rectangular.

If you order the prescription or blue light filter version, you’ll need to bring them to the optician upon arrival and have the prescription lenses fitted. Of course, this does not apply to the Echo Frames sunglasses. The next-generation Echo Frames glasses with thermometer support can be pre-ordered for $194.99, the blue light filtered version for $224.99, and the sunglasses for $254.99. The third-generation Carrera Echo Frames sunglasses can also be pre-ordered for $314.99.
