QiDi Vida Smart AR Glasses for Active Lifestyle

We have featured many smart glasses and AR glasses, but until Minimis Glass was introduced, there hadn’t been a pair specifically designed for active lifestyles; however, Minimis does not quite resemble traditional sports eyewear. The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide does fit the sports aesthetic but is limited to BMW motorcycles. Enter the QiDi Vida Smart AR Glasses.

QiDi Vida Smart AR Glasses for Active Lifestyle

They look like typical sunglasses for active lifestyles but are loaded with technology, including augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and a state-of-the-art head-up display similar to those found in aircraft and premium cars. Like most AR/smart glasses, it is essentially a wearable smart HUD but with a design and functions developed for active lifestyles like golfing, running, cycling et cetera.

QiDi Vida is many things rolled into one. It combines the functionality of smartwatches, sports headphones, cycling computers, heart rate monitors, and even walkie-talkies. It packs a bunch of sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, UV, air pressure, geomagnetism, and acceleration. These sensors provide users with health and environmental alerts, as well as fall and collision detection, and the ability to send distress signals.

It boasts a voice-activated HUD that displays real-time data like navigation, speed, and heart rate. It also features a 10-inch AR HUD screen for entertainment, eSIM support, and team functionality for real-time voice communication and location monitoring.

While the QiDi Vida offers hands-free control of all functions and a lightweight, comfortable design with dual lenses for a full-color data display, enhancing the augmented reality experience, it is not clear how well the display performs under bright sunlight or how effective the microphone(s) are in windy or noisy environments.

The device is sleek and resembles regular sports eyewear, but it comes at a cost. It requires support from an external device but as a boon, it allows users the freedom to choose their preferred cycling smart hardware and sports apps. It is compatible with brands like Garmin, Wahoo, Apple, Samsung, Strava, and more.

The QiDi Vida Smart AR Glasses will be officially launched on April 23, 2024, on Kickstarter. The pricing is not disclosed, though. If you are keen, you may sign up to be notified when it goes live on Kickstarter. Meanwhile, you can also learn more about this upcoming AR wearables HERE.
