HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II is a new generation of Huawei’s smart audio glasses released in 2020. Based on the previous HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear, the problem of sound leakage has been improved, and the charging, battery life, intelligent interaction and other aspects have been upgraded. . This series of glasses adheres to the design principles of simplicity, fashion, and smart core, focusing on product fashion and ease of wearing.
Smart audio glasses combine smart audio with the form of glasses, and configure an independent operating system for them, so that they have both functions, which not only enhance the portability of the product, but also have fashionable decoration functions, and are regarded as Another market hotspot after TWS earphones.
Huawei Eyewear II is also richer in appearance design, providing 4 sunglasses and 9 optical glasses with a total of 13 front frames to meet the needs of different people in different scenarios. The charging box has also changed from a bag shape to a box shape, and adopts NFC wireless fast charging technology. Due to the size problem, the built-in battery of the charging box was cancelled. Correspondingly, the battery life of the glasses has been greatly improved, from 2.5 hours in the previous generation to 5 hours.
The 128mm² custom-made diaphragm is used in the configuration, and a new inverse sound field acoustic system is added, which effectively reduces the sound leakage of the previous generation products, and can offset the sound leakage of the previous generation. The latest Bluetooth 5.2 protocol further improves the connection stability; the interactive experience passes Built-in vibration sensor, press sensor and sliding sensor three sensors, realize the control of various functions. This time we are disassembling the Huawei Eyewear II smart glasses SMART LUTTO-01, let us take a look at this product and its internal configuration in detail.
