Eyeware has entered the smart age, with many options for eyewear and sunglasses with built-in Bluetooth now on the market. And the most comfortable option in our roundup of favorites is Amazon’s own Echo Frames. The 2nd gen Echo frames have your Alexa assistant built in so you can make calls, play music and more on the go, and right now Amazon Prime members can buy a pair for themselves starting at $100 as part of Amazon’s early Prime Day promotion. deals. That’s $150 in savings.
With these frames, you can make calls, listen to podcasts and Audible books, set reminders, receive news, control your smart home and more hands-free with Alexa. The open-ear audio directs the sound to your ears and minimizes what others around you can hear. The frames even feature Auto Volume that automatically adjusts to the noise in your environment.
The frames are lightweight and designed for all-day wear. You can get them in three colors: Classic Black, Horizon Blue, and Modern Tortoise. And they can come with a variety of lenses, including blue light filter lenses or polarized sunglass lenses with UV400 protection — and even prescription lenses, if needed. Plus, battery life has been increased by 40% in the 2nd generation, with a full charge delivering up to 4 hours of uninterrupted audio playback, or over 2 hours of talk time, Alexa interactions, and media playback over a 14-hour day.
Your frames even support access to Google Assistant or Siri from compatible devices. Plus, the VIP filter lets you customize which notifications you want to receive from the contacts and apps on your phone, so you don’t waste battery on irrelevant notifications. The frames are IPX4 splash resistant against water and sweat, so you can wear them on your commute or wherever you go.
