JINS' subtle smartglasses turn into sport-centric sunglasses
JINS' fatigue-tracking smartglasses have a new running-obsessed relative: the Meme MT. At the Japanese glasses makers' flagship store in Harajuku, JINS is offering free trials for anyone interested, but perhaps hesitating on that 19,000 yen ($160) price tag. Similar to the features we saw on the original Meme glasses, sensors and gyros inside the frames offer highly detailed metrics -- enough for software and algorithms to pump running info including your center of gravity, gait and pace to the companion running app. The glasses maker has been making a gradual push into the US, launching another flagship store in the unofficial home of wearable tech: San Francisco. Still, no word yet on when or whether it'll be offering its smartglasses options there, however.
