Today Razer announced the Anzu, a pair of blue light filters smart glasses which are tailor-made for the warrior’s work at home. Razer is and always has been a company that was for gamers by gamers, and probably always will be.
But over the past year it has changed slightly to include the changes that were warranted due to the changes that were thrown to everyone in the world. So, Razer began to offer productivity and work from home related products to accommodate the current state of affairs. Which means a lot more people are working from home and spending a lot more time in front of computer screens.
But all that time in front of the screens can take a toll on your eyes. So Razer Anzu smart glasses are designed to help.
Razer Anzu smart glasses filter blue light and play your favorite tunes
With the Anzu, Razer fulfills three very different roles, but at the same time reduces the need to use three separate products.
While the primary purpose of these smart glasses is to filter blue light (Razer says they filter 35%), they also protect your eyes from 99% of UVA / UVB light. Which means you can seamlessly switch from wearing them inside to wearing them outside. So they are basically blue light glasses and sunglasses.
But these are smart glasses. So they also have to have “smart” technology and functionality, right? If you said yes, you are right. The Anzu also features open-ear acoustics and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. So they can connect to your smartphone and play audio.
The glasses have touch-sensitive playback controls on the side to manage the music. They are also compatible with your smartphone’s voice assistant and are compatible with Android and iOS. Which means you can use them with Google Assistant and Siri.
Two styles and a very “Razer” price
Look, we all know Razer’s stuff isn’t always super affordable. But there is a reason for this and it is because Razer products are generally of very high quality.
The Anzu smart glasses come with some pretty feature rich technology inside. And that comes at a price. Razer starts selling the Anzu from today on its website. They come in two different styles and two sizes. Round and rectangular frames, and small / medium or large sizes.
Any combination of frame style and size will cost the same, which is $ 199. However, you may find that some styles and sizes are not available or in stock at the moment. The Anzu also come with an IPX4 and have a charge of around 5 hours.
