Bose Frames review

The Bose Frames are a pair of augmented reality smartglasses made by Bose, a manufacturer based in the US.

These smart glasses feature built-in wireless earphones. The smartglasses also have a microphone and a multi-function button. This allows users to activate voice-control, or functions such as streaming music, accessing virtual assistants, or making and receiving calls. Connectivity is only possible via BlueTooth.

However, these AR glasses don’t have a display or camera. The Frames use an integrated 9-axis head motion sensor and the GPS from the user’s smartphone to determine their location and where the user is looking.

Bose Frames come with a carry case, charging cable, and a cloth bag.
