Oakley has this week added a new addition to their range of ski goggles, in the form of the newly launched Oakley Airwave 1.5 that build on the technology in the previous version.
The Oakley Airwave 1.5 are equipped with a heads-up-display (HUD) that is projected onto the inside of the screen of the goggles for the wearer to see.
The HUD within the Oakley Airwave 1.5 ski eyewear uses prism technology to provide a widescreen view that provides the size of a 14-inch screen viewed from a distance of 5 feet. Information available to view includes speed, trip viewer, jump analytics, vertical measurements, navigation data and more.
“Ever have one of those downhill runs where you’re sure you broke some speed record? Ever pull-off a trick with such amplitude that you could swear you left earth’s atmosphere for a sec? And wouldn’t it be cool to know for sure?
Well now you can. Airwave takes Oakley goggle design and technology to the next level with a built-in heads up display that integrates GPS, Bluetooth® and more. Onboard sensors give you instant access to jump analytics that show distance, height and airtime. But there’s so much more: preloaded maps, music playlist control, buddy tracking, and so on. Airwave isn’t merely a goggle; it’s a mobile dashboard.”
The new Oakley Airwave 1.5 ski goggles are also compatible with the Garmin VIRB action camera and are now available to purchase for $649 directly from the Oakley website via the link below.
