Razer launches new smart eyewear that provides immersive low-latency Bluetooth™ audio and protects your eyes from harmful light.
Razer today announced the Razer Anzu Smart Glasses, its first-ever eyewear product. Razer Anzu combines the valuable protection of 35% blue light filtering lenses, 99% UVA/UVB protective polarized sunglasses, touch controls, and open-ear audio for a one-of-a-kind wearable.
Open-ear wireless sound and the use of Razer’s low-latency Bluetooth technology offer consumers greater immersion and convenience to enjoy work-play lifestyles. A less-than 48g lightweight and ergonomic design deliver a comfortable fit for extended use, particularly during work-from-home sessions. Razer Anzu will be available in fashionable rectangular or round frame designs, each in two sizes with subtle branding adorning the durable and flexible frame hinges meant for easy storage.
“The Razer Anzu modernizes the wearable category in terms of convenience and blue light or UV protection,” said John Moore, Head of Sales and Marketing at Razer. “With Anzu, Razer is entering the market at a time when there is a surge of people working from home – where eye protection, hands-free communication, and smart features are now in high demand.”
Protect your eyes
Consumers spend countless hours using mobile devices, laptops, and computer displays for both business and pleasure, which exposes their eyes to blue light. Razer Anzu is an all-in-one solution to filter out the damaging light of digital devices and the sun, adding a much-needed element of protection to stylish smart eyewear. The best-in-class package is complete with pre-installed 35% blue light filtering lenses to protect from screen glare, reducing digital eyestrain so eyes feel fresh and focused while enjoying entertainment or working. For outdoor activities, replacement polarized lenses are included in the retail bundle to shield eyes from 99% of UVA/UVB rays.
Razer is excited to partner with Lensabl who is extending 15% off prescription lenses for corrective eyewear customers who purchase Razer Anzu.
Low latency, open-ear audio
The customized Bluetooth 5.1 connection brings industry-leading 60ms latency for a smooth, stutter-free sound that allows you to stay immersed without any disruptions from audio delay or skipping. A discreet omnidirectional mic and speakers built into the Anzu frame provide nearly imperceivable, convenient hands-free communication wherever you are.
Users will get more than 5 hours of battery life on a single charge. When folded up and not in use, power is conserved by shutting off to achieve nearly two weeks of standby power.
True smart features
For convenient and intuitive smart controls, a touch interface on the side of the Anzu frame can change music tracks, play or pause media, manage conference calls, and activate the smartphone’s voice assistant. A user-friendly device experience extends to the available Android and iOS apps which deliver EQ adjustments (default, enhanced clarity, or treble boost), latency settings, battery status, and firmware updates.
Available in different sizes and styles, Razer Anzu has a water-resistant IPX4 design to be splashproof, so workouts and unfortunate spills or weather will not be a problem. Product packaging includes Anzu Smart Glasses with 35% blue light filtering lenses pre-installed, 99% UVA/UVB protective polarized sunglass replacement lenses, USB-A charging cable, cleaning cloth, and a carrying case to store the frames and additional lenses.
