Train Like The US Olympic Cycling Team With These Smart Glasses
Glasses provide athletes with all the essential data they need at blink of an eye
After the doping scandal involving Lance Armstrong stormed the cycling world, any performance-enhancing innovations are taken under scrutiny by the Union Cycliste Internationale. But the US Olympic Cycling Team has just gained an ace up its sleeve by focusing on the latest tech, instead of drugs. Augmented reality training smart glasses, developed by Solos, a wearable company geared toward athletes, allow them to see all the vital data mid-ride, without the need to look down on the screen.
Solos glasses display heart rate, speed, power, pace, cadence, distance, duration and other Bluetooth and ANT+ compatible data and can be sync with popular cycling apps such as Strava or MapMyRide.
However, even if you are not an Olympic cyclist, you can still take advantage of data-driven workouts. Solos just took to Kickstarter to promote its tech among everyday cyclists, allowing them to pre-order the glasses at a lower price.
