Huawei Introduces HUAWEI × GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II

Huawei introduces an updated version of the glasses from Gentle Monster smart eyewear, the HUAWEI x GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II. It is currently available at selected stores.

You don’t have to wait anymore. The HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II is now available at S$638 in selected Huawei Concept Stores at 313@Somerset and Westgate, consumer electronic stores including Best Denki, Challenger & Hachi.techCOURTSHarvey Norman and official online stores with Lazada and Shopee.

I love Gentle Monster eyewear. I owned a few pairs of their sunglasses. With the cosmetic improvement in the HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II, it looks really sleek and fashionable.

They have two versions:

Huawei Gentle Monster II Glasses – MYMA-01

Huawei Gentle Monster II Glasses – Smart Havana-01

It is unfortunate that the HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II is currently being promoted as a simple Bluetooth audio eyewear in the consumer electronics store instead of a fashion piece.

So, what is new compared to the first version?

A larger, slimmer, large-amplitude loudspeaker – Offers a wider soundstage range for a more immersive sound experience.

A unique acoustic privacy design – With one semi-open speaker on each side of the lens temple, which transmits sound directly to the wearer’s ear through the directional sound chamber, effectively reducing sound leakage and providing a clearer and more layered stereo experience. Both temples include a leakage hole design that can offset the directional sound waves generated by sound cavities, further reducing sound leakage.

Adaptive volume technology – Eyewear II can automatically lower the volume based on the ambient sound environment, which ensures the user can hear clearly while minimizing the impact on the people around them.

Updated smart gesture control – For pairing, users only need to gently pinch on the left temple. In addition, the voice assistant can be easily activated by a double-tap on the left temple.

Supports swiping gestures – To play the next/previous song or adjust the volume, users only need to make a few swipes on the temples without taking out their phone.

Multiple advanced sensors – Eyewear II can intelligently detect wear status. For instance, during music playback, Eyewear II will pause when the sensors detect that the user has taken off the glasses, and will resume if the user puts them on again within three minutes.

Smart experience – After the user puts aside their Eyewear II for a while and put them on again, a window will pop up on the smartphone screen, so the user can check Eyewear II’s battery level with a glance. Eyewear II plays a greeting when the user puts them on for the first time each day.

Powerful battery – Allow users to keep wearing them for hours on end. Eyewear II can play music for 5 hours continuously on a single charge.

New NFC contactless and wireless fast charging technology – Allows the glasses to be ready to use anytime, anywhere.

Huawei announces HUAWEI × GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II: Leading the way in smart audio fashion

SINGAPORE, 16 October 2020 – Today, Huawei officially announces the launch of the next generation of smart glasses in the HUAWEI × GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II. Based on their core design philosophy of the seamless fusion of technology with fashion, Huawei’s second-generation smart glasses continue to focus on audio and smart innovation, with a more avant-garde yet comfortable design and a greater wealth of outstanding smart functions to experience. With it, Huawei is forging a unique and iconic smart wear trend for sophisticated fashion-conscious consumers.

The Eyewear II collection is a bold and forward-thinking variation on GENTLE MONSTER’s designs. The Eyewear II draws on GENTLE MONSTER’s design philosophy which is not only visually stunning but also offers a wide range of sunglasses and eyewear options to accentuate the wearer’s personality. Eyewear II was designed using Huawei’s core technologies and acoustic privacy protection features. The semi-open, ultra-thin, large-amplitude speaker effectively cancels out sound leakage and provides the wearer with high-definition stereo sound. The newly upgraded Smart Interaction function turns the glasses into your own personal assistant, which offers not only faster access to information, but also a more intelligent form of interaction, providing consumers with a brand new experience of smart wearable technology.

Fashion and comfort in style

The HUAWEI X GENTLE MONSTER Eyewear II offers a more comfortable wearing experience. Integrating technologies in a precise manner, the slim temples are made of plastic titanium for lower density and lighter weight. The hinge between the temples and the frame rim is also made of titanium elastic, with increased holding strength to reduce the gripping feeling brought about on the temples. Furthermore, the curved earpiece angle has been increased from the first generation, from 12° to 20°, to achieve a better fit.

Eyewear II also features a unique acoustic privacy design, with one semi-open speaker on each side of the lens temple, which transmits sound directly to the wearer’s ear through the directional sound chamber, effectively reducing sound leakage and providing a clearer and more layered stereo experience. Meanwhile, both temples include a leakage hole design that can offset the directional sound waves generated by sound cavities, further reducing sound leakage. Together with adaptive volume technology, Eyewear II can automatically lower the volume based on the ambient sound environment, which ensures the user can hear clearly while minimising the impact on the people around them.
