BMW Motorrad presents ConnectedRide Smartglasses

The BMW ConnectedRide Smartglasses enables live updates for riders without even lifting a finger.

Imagine this: you’re cruising down the open road on your trusty motorcycle, feeling the wind in your hair and the freedom in your soul. But wait, there’s more to this thrilling ride.

What was once only found in the realms of science fiction is now becoming a reality with the revolutionary BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Smartglasses. These bad boys are about to take your motorcycle experience to a whole new level.

Heads-up display technology, straight out of the automotive sector, right there in your motorcycle goggles. It’s like having your own personal dashboard right in your field of vision. Navigation, speed, gear – all the vital data you need, projected in real-time, allowing for more anticipatory and safer riding.

Getting these smartglasses up and running is also a piece of cake, according to BMW. Just connect them to your smartphone via Bluetooth and the app, and you’re good to go. Plus, you get to customize the projection position and settings before or even during your ride, thanks to the nifty multi-controller on your motorcycle handlebars.

BMW Motorrad knows a thing or two about comfort, and they’ve made sure these smartglasses have it in spades. The design has been tailor-made to meet the needs of motorcyclists, ensuring a snug and cosy fit for various helmets and face shapes.

Long day trips? You can ride in style and comfort all day long. And with the lithium-ion battery, you get a whopping ten hours of operation – that’s plenty of time to chase the horizon.

For lenses, you’ve got an 85% transparent set, perfect for helmets with built-in sun visors. And for those sunny days, there’s a tinted set, turning these smartglasses into the coolest pair of sunglasses in town.

For all the glasses-wearing riders out there, BMW Motorrad has got your back too. They offer an RX adapter (+/- 4.5 diopters) that you can order directly from the provider. So, no more squinting or compromising on style – just crystal-clear vision on your thrilling journey.

The BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide Smartglasses made their grand entrance on 7 July 2023 at the BMW Motorrad Days in Berlin.
