Epson BT300 Smart Glasses
A lower-cost solution from a well-known and reliable manufacturer. The Epson BT-300 provides a high-quality product for a budget cost. We have found it to be reliable and hard-wearing. The only drawbacks of the glasses are the need to add a safety visor in H&S required locations and the threader to a battery/processor/controller which can be stored in your pocket. That said this also means that it is the lightest weight headset. Battery life of 4 hours continuous use.
Epson BT-350 ANSI Z87.1 Edition.
Lightweight, reliable and hard-wearing with integrated safety features. The lightest headset currently giving low ergonomic impact and many ergonomic benefits. Battery life of 4 hours continuous use. Binocular display.
Similar in look and feel to the Vuzix M300, this headset is hard-wearing and suitable for use with a hard hat, strap or baseball cap. It also has the benefit of coming in an “intrinsically safe” ATEX rated version. Battery life of 8 hours continuous use, with hot-swappable batteries.
Microsoft Hololens is among the most technically sophisticated solutions available on the market, using best in class sensors and software. The system is currently heavier and less user friendly than some of the alternatives however and so not widely used in the field.
Vuzix M300 XL
Vuzix M300 provides a lightweight monocular solution that is suitable for several applications. The device benefits from being well suited to wear with existing glasses.
A comfortable and stylish headset by Vuzix. Comfortable to wear and control but initial reviews suggest that has a lower quality display.
A well-hyped powerful headset with similar functionality to Hololens. Limits on peripheral vision and significant shading on glass make it unsuitable for many enterprise applications.
Google Glass provides a lightweight monocular solution that is suitable for several applications. The device benefits from being well suited to wear with existing glasses. Can be hard to control and hardware has exhibited some reliability issues.
