Innovative Eyewear has launched its Eddie Bauer smart glasses collection powered by ChatGPT. Simply speaking “Lucyd” will allow wearers to ask ChatGPT questions and hear answers over the four built-in speakers. Users can also take calls and control apps using the smart glasses while connected to their phones over Bluetooth connections from up to 100 feet away (30 meters).

Innovative Eyewear has unveiled its Eddie Bauer smart eyewear collection powered by ChatGPT. Wearers can call up Siri and ChatGPT by speaking into the dual microphones and receive answers through the quadrasonic speakers.

ChatGPT can be asked to compose email replies, summarize long texts, translate texts, and more hands-free through the free Lucyd app, which integrates with all Lucyd eyewear from Innovative Eyewear. This allows users to keep the same chat history regardless of the eyewear they choose to wear each day.

The Lucyd app also works on all Apple iOS phones without Lucyd eyewear for free, and an Android version is coming soon. Users can also take calls, play music, and control apps over Bluetooth 5.2 connections from up to 100 feet (30 meters) away. Basic touch controls are available for controlling music playback, answering calls, and launching the voice assistant. The rechargeable batteries power the eyewear up to 12 hours before charging in the included dock.

The collection includes the Explorer, Horizon, Navigator, and Velocity models, and only the Velocity cannot be made with prescription lenses. The prescription Explorer and non-prescription Velocity models are priced from $249, while the others are priced from $229. The Horizon is the world’s first rimless smart glasses powered by ChatGPT. All models are available on the Lucyd website today, while Amazon currently carries the company’s Nautica and XL smart glasses.

Innovative Eyewear was founded in 2019 and focuses on developing smart eyewear with licenses from famous brands such as Reebok, Nautica, and Eddie Bauer.
