Australian startup Minimis is revolutionizing the fitness tracking industry with the introduction of their groundbreaking product, Minimis Glass – the world's first standalone smart glasses designed to display real-time fitness statistics and navigation maps. These innovative glasses are targeted at runners and cyclists, eliminating the need for smartphones or fitness trackers during workouts.

Niantic Unveiled a Prototype of a New AR Headset
One of the main innovations is the multiplayer mode of operation. It is based on a visual positioning system that allows a virtual object to be linked to a real location so that several people wearing AR glasses see it in the same place at once.

Minimis Glass, weighing only 90 grams, boasts an augmented reality display that projects performance data directly onto the user's field of vision. These glasses, enabled with eSIM support, offer information about ongoing workouts and assist with real-time navigation. Moreover, users can sync Minimis Glass with wireless headphones to stream music via Spotify.

Apple Showed Off Its AR Headset to the Company’s Board of Directors
Apple has already shown its AR headset to board members, which means that it is almost ready for release. Most likely, the novelty will be presented to the public later this year, and it will go on sale in 2023.

Powered by a Qualcomm quad-core processor and equipped with a pair of OLED 1080p screens, each with a brightness of 500 nits, Minimis Glass ensures an unobtrusive display of data in the upper third of the lens, allowing users to maintain focus on their surroundings. Its innovative interface has been tailored to athletes, offering seamless integration with Garmin Varia, a radar system that functions both as a headlight and a warning system for approaching vehicles.

These smart glasses also feature a unique anti-fogging technology, ensuring clear visibility even in humid conditions. With a battery capacity of 650mAh each, the glasses provide up to 7 hours of continuous display usage or around 11 hours with periodic display activation.
