Innovative Eyewear, Inc. (NASDAQ: LUCY) drops over 9.29% in pre trading session on Wednesday as the company has released a significant update to its flagship Lucyd Lyte audio eyewear platform. The new Lucyd Lyte 2.0 line adds several improvements to the company’s core product and is now available at Lucyd.co in any optical prescription. The product will be introduced to optical and specialty retailers worldwide by the company. The Lyte 2.0 is the result of years of research and development to realize the company’s mission of making smart eyewear more accessible, useful, and stylish for the optical and sunglass markets.
A four-speaker array delivers immersive open-ear audio that rivals traditional earbuds without obstructing your hearing. In comparison to the previous Lucyd Lyte, the new speaker system has improved mid-range and bass response.
The addition of dual noise-cancelling microphones improves audio input. When compared to most built-in smartphone microphones, the Lyte 2.0 is ideal for recording audio content such as podcasts and voice messages, and it improves the fidelity of phone calls and input for voice assistants such as Siri®.
The battery life of the glasses has been increased by 50% over the previous model to 12 hours of music playback and call time per charge.
An experienced eyewear design team created 15 trending eyewear styles for the collection. Ten styles are currently available, with the remaining five available for pre-order until March 2023.
As part of the company’s initiative to develop smart eyewear for all head shapes and sizes, the collection includes optical frames designed specifically for women and petite heads.
The power and pairing LEDs have been relocated to a more obtrusive location in the inner temple.
CEO of Innovative Eyewear, Harrison Gross stated that to put it simply, no smart eyewear on the market is as bold, beautiful, or functional as the Lucyd Lyte 2.0. They are in a very unique place in history where time-tested devices like the wristwatch and eyeglasses are being reimagined as onramps into their digital lives. He is grateful and amazed that his team was able to create smart eyewear that truly delivers on the promise of wearables to make many forms of data and mobile computing more natural and seamless to access. Unlike many companies that manufacture smart eyewear alongside dozens or hundreds of other products, they are solely focused on making this emerging category useful and exciting for the average person. He encourages everyone to upgrade their eyewear with the Lyte 2.0 to see and hear the difference that years of careful and rigorous development on a single core can make.
