In the wearable category, smart glasses are not as popular as smartwatches and wireless earbuds. Even so, the technology in smart glasses always raises curiosity. Well, this time we have Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II smart glasses. What features do these sophisticated glasses offer? Check out the reviews as follows.
Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II Design
Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II comes with sunglasses or sunglasses. Gentle Monster itself is not a new player in the eyewear segment. This South Korean manufacturer is already very popular in the fashion world with unique designs of sunglasses or reading glasses.
Overall the design of these glasses is very solid and feels premium. The frame size is relatively wide, but still ideal for a variety of face models. Its weight is also quite light even though it has a pair of speaker modules embedded in both arms.
The design of the two arms is also a thumbs-up. Flat like sunglasses in general and not too thick. The speaker that he carries can be hidden very neatly in his arm without a single prominent speaker element visible. This makes it very comfortable to use.
Shifting to the hinge, the hinge is made of a titanium alloy. As we know, titanium material is stronger than ordinary metal material. So, the hinge durability can be relied on for long-term use. For navigation, Huawei’s left arm has a sensor that supports swipe, tap and pinch commands.
One added value Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II has also been designed to be dust and splash resistant with an IP54 rating.
Features of the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II
Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II is not smart glasses with AR or Augmented Reality concepts. The most important feature of these glasses are the speakers they carry. So, you can immediately listen to music or answer phone calls when connected to a smartphone. No more need to use a wireless headset or earbuds.
In addition, thanks to the microphone it carries, these glasses can be used to interact with virtual assistants. The microphone can also be used for audio recording. So, it is quite ideal to support content creation activities.
Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II can connect to Android and iOS smartphones. For iOS smartphones you can download the Huawei Eyewear application from the AppStore. Meanwhile, Android can be controlled via the Huawei AI Life application. With Bluetooth connectivity, these glasses can connect to a smartphone in a flash. The pairing process is very easy. Even if it’s for lay users.
Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II performance
In this review we connect the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II to the Huawei P40 Pro smartphone. To test the audio quality of the speakers we played a few songs from Spotify.
The audio quality from the speakers is quite good. The character of the voice tends to be flat. The resulting sound is quite clear even though it feels a little less powerful. Not suitable for users who like to listen to songs that emphasize bass. To listen to music while on the move is more than enough.
At the maximum volume setting, we noticed that there was still a slight sound leak. It’s quite natural for speakers with an open design like this. Thus, for use in public places the ideal volume setting is in the 30-50% range. When we tried to answer a phone call, the microphone quality was also quite decent.
Navigation is also very easy. On the left arm are a series of sensors that support tap, swipe, and pinch commands. When trying it, the sensor is very responsive to the touch of a finger so navigation becomes easier.
Then what about the durability of the battery? Once recharged, the battery can be used for up to 5 hours of listening to music. Fairly average like most wireless earbuds. Charging the battery is also very easy. Users only need to place the glasses back in their protective case. To charge you still need to connect the protective case with a USB-C cable.
It’s a bit impractical but understandable because the protective box is not equipped with a battery. Thanks to the fast charging feature, charging the battery can also take less time.
Admittedly, with a selling price in the range of 6 million, the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II is not exactly cheap. These smart glasses are classified as premium. Even so, the concept it offers is still quite interesting. In addition to sunglasses for style, thanks to the speakers and microphone that they carry, these glasses can also be relied upon for listening to music, answering phone calls to recording audio.
If you don’t mind the selling price and it matches the design, we recommend the Huawei X Gentle Monster Eyewear II for you fashion and gadget lovers who want to taste smart glasses technology. These glasses can also be a solution for users who don’t want to bother carrying sunglasses and wireless earbuds when traveling.
