4iiii Innovations has this week unveiled their new Sportiiiis device which has been under development for some time and has been created to provide aheads-up display to a pair of standard sunglasses or spectacles.
The Sportiiiis has been built specifically for athletes and can be fitted to virtually anywhere of glasses using its universal attachment points pairing with a monitoring device via ANT+ wireless technology. It then displays the data in real-time back to the user using a range of coloured LEDs and audio updates. Watch the video after the jump.
Unfortunately the device doesn’t offer any flashy graphics to provide heart rate or calorie information, just the bare essentials via the coloured LEDs. If the cyclist or runner sees a red LED light up on the flexible boom the athlete is working too hard and needs to ease off a little. Where as green means the user is in the zone and yellow or orange indicates somewhere in between.
The Sportiiiis HUD for cyclists and runners will be available in November and prices will start from $199.
