Intel and Oakley present sports glasses that coach you

'Radar Pace' will offer a voice-activated real-time coaching system.

Last year, Intel purchased Recon Instruments, the makers of a pair of smart glasses designed for runners and cyclists. At the same time that the deal was going down, however, the firm was also signing on with Oakley to produce a similar device under its own steam. Radar Pace is "smart eyewear" that you'll wear while running and that monitors your performance as you go. Once it has a firm grasp on your technique, it'll offer voice coaching, in real time, to help you improve your technique as if you were running with a coach. Radar Pace is due to launch in late 2016, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced on the CES stage.
