Putting vital performance stats where they’re always visible, the Sportiiiisadds a simple heads up display to almost any pair of glasses so an athlete doesn’t have to glance down at a wrist monitor or smartphone to know if they’re keeping pace.

The HUD easily straps to the arm of a pair of glasses, positioning a thin boom just below the wearer’s right eye. And instead of using a complicated, cluttered stats display that’s projected onto the lens, or even directly into the eye, the Sportiiiis has a simple set of seven colored LEDs that light up and flash to indicate an athlete’s performance. The HUD wirelessly connects to existing performance monitors such as pedometers or heart rate chest straps using the ANT+ protocol, and the user can configure exactly how the LEDs light up in response to their current level of activity.
