Motorola, Inc. and Oakley, Inc. will make the RAZRwire Bluetooth eyewear available in early August 2005 at select Cingular Wireless retail stores and online. The RAZRwire is the first eyewear to combine patented Oakley optics with Bluetooth wireless technology.
RAZRwire is designed with Motorola's third generation Bluetooth technology and supports Bluetooth RF protocol 1.1 and 1.2 ensuring compatibility with most Bluetooth-enabled cellular phones and other Bluetooth devices. The Bluetooth module is designed to complement the overall look of the sunglasses.
The controls include two volume buttons and a single button used to handle incoming and outgoing calls. RAZRwire allows you to carry on phone conversations while up to 30 feet away from a compatible Bluetooth-enabled cell phone. Charging is easy using an included wall charger or through a USB computer port using an optional cable.
Bluetooth Sniff Mode technology increases the battery life of RAZRwire, offering continuous talk time of more than five hours and standby time of up to approximately 100 hours. The module's speaker can be worn on either ear or removed entirely.
The frame is made of Oakley's proprietary O-Luminum, an alloy 40 percent lighter than pure titanium. Custom engineered spring hinges provide a secure, adaptable fit, and soft Unobtainium components increase grip with perspiration. The Plutonite lenses, which filter out 100 percent of UV and blue light, feature Oakley's patented XYZ Optics, an innovation that maximizes clarity at all angles of vision throughout all surfaces of the wrapped lens contours.
RAZRwire will initially be available in three color frame/lens color combinations, including Platinum/Gold Iridium, Pewter/Black Iridium and Mercury/Gray, with a retail price of US$$294.99.
