The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Smartglasses offer two-wheelers a head-up display. The head-up display is one of the most useful screens for drivers. BMW’s new smart glasses connect to your smartphone and project vital information onto your vision. Now you don’t have to look down to see the essential information.

From the outside, these look like normal sunglasses, but come in both clear and tinted versions for use in all weather conditions. To ensure the perfect fit, they are available in a wide variety of helmet and face shapes. There is also the option to have the diopter of the lenses adjusted for those who normally wear glasses while driving.
The battery in the goggles provides projection for up to 10 hours of use. You can also charge it with a USB cable. The system uses real-time GPS data from the app and displays speed, speed limit, gear and navigation information for the ride.
In addition, you must use the BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide app on your phone to sync it. It also means you need a compatible bike too.
BMW Motorrad only showed these glasses on the eve of the BMW Motorrad Days in Berlin. The company expects to bring this product to consumers before the end of 2023. The goggles will go on sale this summer for €690 (about £590 / $750).
There are no words for when this technology will be available for all e-bikes and e-scooters. But hopefully we will get more information about it in the near future. So stay tuned for more updates.
