Ray-Ban and Facebook launched the first pair of smart glasses that combine style and everyday wearability to help you stay present with friends, family, and the world around you.
Ray-Ban Stories let you capture, share, and listen in a whole new way, so you can keep your eyes up and stay present at the moment.
Starting at USD 299, one chooses from 20 combinations of frame/lens styles from the most iconic frames Ray-Ban offers Wayfarer, Round, or Meteor. Ray-Ban Stories are available now at select Ray-Ban stores, on Ray-Ban.com, and will be rolling out to other retailers soon, in 6 countries including the US, UK, Canada, Italy, Ireland, and Australia. They are also available with Polarised, Transitions lenses, and prescription (varied pricing).
The key features include;
Convenient Camera Capture – It has an instant photo and video (up to 30 seconds) that lets you capture spontaneous moments using the dual 5MP cameras on the front of the frames. A capture LED lights up when the cameras are on to notify those around you that photography or recording is taking place. Go hands-free for more convenient capture with Facebook Assistant and the “Hey Facebook” wake word. Simply say, “Hey Facebook, take a photo [or video]” and Ray-Ban Stories will do the rest.
Stylish Design – Choose the frames that fit your style and needs. Ray-Ban Stories comes in three styles: Wayfarer (also available in size Wayfarer L), Round, and Meteor, and is offered in five colors and more lens choices, for 20 possible variations.
Built-In Audio – Built-in Bluetooth and a 3-microphone audio array allow you to listen to your favorite media, music, or podcast from any app on your phone and take calls – all from the glasses.
Facebook View App – Edit and enhance the everyday memories captured on Ray-Ban Stories using the Facebook View companion app (iOS and Android) and share them with family and friends, or across Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, or any other app of your choice.
