Razer’s new wearable lets you connect in style.
Razer has just announced a new pair of glasses that are designed to accompany your daily work routines whether it’s at home or at the office. Meet the Anzu, the company’s first product in the eyewear category that brings 35 percent blue light filtering lenses and 99 percent UVA/UVB protective polarize sunglasses.
The Anzu also features open-ear wireless audio that lets you stream music through Razer’s low-latency Bluetooth technology. Weighing just 48 grams, the Anzu comes with an ergonomic design and a comfortable fit that’s best when you’re doing extended work-from-home sessions.
“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.”
Using Bluetooth 5.1, the Anzu offers 60ms latency when streaming audio so you won’t get any delays or stutters. There’s also an omnidirectional mic and speakers that are built into the frames of the Anzy to provide hands-free communication.
The Anzu is also splashproof and features smart controls through a touch interface located on the size of the glass frame. This will let you control playback as well as use your device’s virtual assistant. Configuration options like EQ and firmware updates are available through the free iOS and Android app.
As for battery life, the Anzu supports up to 5 hours from a single charge, and to converse power, the glasses will shut off when it is folded and not in use. Razer says that it can support up to two weeks of standby power and you can charge it using USB-C.
The Razer Anzu is now available for $199.99, with replacement sunglass lenses priced at $29.99.
