Following our initial presentation of Oakley and Intel's Radar Pace smartglasses just over a month ago, we take a much closer look at the duo's latest innovation. At first glance not much different from a regular set of Oakley Radarlock sunglasses, upon closer inspection, the wearable system reveals itself to be loaded with leading technology. That includes three microphones and a range of sensors such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer and humidity and proximity sensors.

Users will perhaps first notice the clip-on earphones (when they're attached at least), which allow for wireless music streaming, of course, in addition to much, much more.

First up - and arguably the biggest selling point - is the virtual coach that the Radar Pace comes equipped with. It works through Intel's Read Audio natural language processing tech and with the simple command "OK Radar," athletes can access relevant info such as what workout they're doing that day, advice on lowering or increasing pace and heart rate data (through a third-party monitor).

All of this data can then be entered in the Radar Pace app for iOS and Android, where personal stats will help manage workout goals over time.

Siri and Google Voice can be used as well to activate a smartphone's regular functions like playing music through Spotify or answering calls. If that's not your thing, then touch-sensitive controls along the temples make all of it simple to use during the course of any workout.

In terms of battery life, users are looking at 4 - 6 hours per charge. If it happens to run out during an exercise routine or you just feel like wearing them as regular sunglasses, simply remove the earphones and you're set. You can even swap the lenses out any time and replace them with another set from Oakley's Prism line.

To see the Oakley Radar Pace in action, check out the clip below. Afterwards, pick up your very own pair straight from the brand's online shop.
