First of its Kind: the ActiveLook “Light AR” Platform Integrates with Apple Watch

In a first-of-its-kind integration, the ActiveLook app is now available on the iOS platform with its new Apple Watch integration. This integration allows Apple Watch users to connect ActiveLook-enabled eyewear directly to the Apple Watch via Bluetooth, and view sports performance metrics in their natural field of view.

With the ability to create up to three “dashboard" screens, with three metrics per dashboard, users can track up to 9 metrics in real-time, during activity. A few of the performance metrics ActiveLook eyewear can display include Running Pace, Heart Rate and Running Power, in addition to the latest running dynamics metrics introduced with Watch OS 9 which include Stride Length, Ground Contact Time, and Vertical Oscillation.

Placing this data in the runner’s natural field of view eliminates the need to break stride, shift focus and change body mechanics to monitor performance, which enables athletes to train and compete with seamless access to immediate and "mission-critical" information. ActiveLook provides a competitive advantage for endurance athletes such as marathoners and triathletes who rely on real-time metrics to achieve their personal best.

ActiveLook’s industry-leading solution for endurance athletes combines MicroOLED’s near-eye displays with an open platform to develop high-performance AR applications. Current eyewear partners include ENGO, Julbo, and Cosmo. ActiveLook developer kits are available.
