The Oakley Airwave Ski Goggles will let you look cool on the white and still serve as an invaluable data feed device as you slaughter the slalom.
While it serves its purpose of protecting the eyes, its primary goal is to serve as an aid for your skiing (and even snowboarding) endeavors. The Airwave is equipped with a mini computer that promotes connectivity for smartphones and tablets. The system is controlled by a wireless wrist controller. The heads-up display looks like a 14inch screen to the human eye positioned about 1.5 metres away, it is quite similar to the type of display that appears on a fighter pilot’s helmet and it provides important stats in real time as you rip through the snow. Listen to your favourite tunes and have full access to your contacts, messages through a wireless connection to your smartphone device or iPhone. Receive an onscreen notification of text messages and phone calls.
It will update you with vital information such as distance, height, and air-time. This live feed will redefine skiing and snowboarding as you know it. Ingeniously, it has been fitted with various pre-loaded maps for different resorts so it can help a lot if you are not familiar with a location and you can track other members of your group. Integrated GPS satellite navigation is bound to come in handy. For reference purposes, record data on location, altitude, velocity and vertical descent with this gadget.
The lens material filters out 100 percent of harmful UV light . The durable chassis is made of lightweight O Matter that stays comfortably flexible, and O-Flow Arch technology reduces nasal pressure to improve airflow for free breathing. The Oakley Airwave Ski Goggles is a reminder of how far technology has come, bring on the future!
