Cheap Oakley launches its Radar Pace talking sunglasses

New sunnies interact via earbuds and a built-in microphone


We first covered the Radar Pace back in January, when Oakley said that it was just in the early stages of development. Well, it’s moved fast because the new sunnies have just been launched.

Priced at £12, the Radar Pace is a collaboration between Oakley outlet and Intel, designed to give real time feedback on training and performance. At its heart is a set of Oakley’s Radar glasses, which are equipped with earbuds and a microphone.


Oakley also provides a touch pad on the left side of the cheap glasses, which can be touched or swiped to control functionality. There are also sensors built into the glasses: an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and pressure, humidity and proximity sensors. Radar Pace is recharged via USB and is IPx5 water resistant.

The intelligence is provided by a mobile phone app, which comes as a free download in Android and iOS variants.

Oakley says that Radar Pace “interprets data in real-time, provides personalized and actionable instruction and motivation during the course of a workout and holds athletes accountable to a structured and dynamic training program.”

There’s Bluetooth connectivity to other devices such as mobile phones for calls, texts and music. You can also get data from other external devices such as power meters, heart rate sensors and GPS units, both via Bluetooth and ANT+.

Part of the Radar Pace package is a set of training programmes appropriate to your experience and goals. The athlete’s interaction with Radar Pace is via Intel’s Real Speech technology. This allows you to ask questions and receive feedback and metrics in real time.

Oh yes, and the lenses use cheap Oakley’s Prizm optics, which it says dramatically enhances detail. “Radar Pace is a testament that everything can and will be made better,” says Scott Smith, Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at Oakley’s parent company Luxottica. “It is the ultimate hands-free training wearable that will push the boundaries of smart eyewear.”

Oakley Sunglasses plans more layoffs in Orange County

Accessories maker Oakley, which is known for its replica sunglasses and sports goggles, plans to reduce 15 to 20 percent of its staff in Foothill Ranch.

The job cuts are a result of some key operations being consolidated into its parent company Luxottica Group, reported the Orange County Register. Italy-based Luxottica (NYSE: LUX) plans to move Oakley’s retail operation to its offices Mason, Ohio, by the end of the year, while wholesale operations will go to the group’s New York office and the Milan office will be in charge of marketing.

Oakley plans to reduce 15 to 20 percent of its staff in Foothill Ranch.

Oakley’s research and development, design, engineering and manufacturing departments will remain in Foothill Ranch, along with a number of administrative positions. Afterward, the company will have about 2,000 employees in the county and at an Encinitas office, the Register said.

Massimo Vian, chief of product and operations for Luxottica, told trade publication Transworld Business that Oakley’s Southern California office will be an “epicenter” for the brand. Infrastructure investments for the Foothill Ranch office have doubled in the past year making it the most advanced automated factory out of the group, Vian said.

Oakley’s apparel, footwear and accessories collections will be scaled back while the group will institute a “minimum advertised price” policy to protect the brand and prevent its products from being sold at discounted prices, Vian said.

Oakley cut about 160 jobs last year and 76 people this year as part of its integration with Luxottica, which bought replica Oakley for $2.1 billion in 2007. The company also is closing its distribution operation in Ontario, while Luxottica builds a new distribution center in Atlanta.

“This final stage of the integration will line Oakley outlet uk up with the rest of Luxottica in terms of channels, functions and geographies, simplifying everything from decision-making to execution,” a Luxottica spokesperson said in a statement.

Luxottica’s other brands include Ray-Ban, Vogue Eyewear, Persol, Oliver Peoples and Alain Mikli. It also has licenses with Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Bulgari, Chanel, Dolce&Gabbana, Ralph Lauren and Tiffany & Co.

Oakley suing AM-PM to stop sale of replica sunglasses

Oakley Inc., which makes sunglasses, apparel and accessories, has filed a lawsuit against convenient store chain AM-PM for selling replica sunglasses that too closely resemble the Oakley brand.

Foothills Ranch-based Oakley filed the lawsuit in federal court Tuesday against Treasure Franchise Co., which franchises AM-PM stores in California, Nevada and Arizona, reported the Orange County Register.

Oakley has sued a convenience store chain for selling sunglasses that Oakley says are too close to its brand.

Oakley claimed the company sells replica sunglasses that are designed to look like cheap Oakley sunglasses, violating seven of its patents filed over a nine-year period with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

“Oakley and its iconic designs are well-known throughout the eyewear industry, and defendant’s eyewear model … is a nearly identical copy of Oakley’s design,” according to the complaint.

The company is seeking that the court issue an injunction against Treasure Franchise to stop selling the glasses and to order AM-PM to give Oakley outlet the money it made from the fake sunglasses, the Register said.

Treasure Franchise parent Tesoro Corp. hasn’t issued a response to the lawsuit.

Oakley has also filed a similar lawsuit against convenience store operator BP West Coast Products, based in La Palma, over the same patents.

Cheap Oakley Debuts New High-Tech Sunglasses For Rio 2016

Why Is This Important?

Because you’ve probably been wondering why so many of the top athletes in Rio are wearing the same green-colored shades.

Long Story Short

Olympic athletes battle to get an edge in any way they can and the 500+ Oakley athletes participating in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will have one with Oakley’s newest high-tech replica sunglasses. The frames are a throwback to company’s early days while the lenses are a ray of their latest innovation, which means many of the top athletes will have enhanced vision, see more details and improved performance while the sun shines bright in Brazil.

Long Story

Eyewear is key to the Summer Olympics – you know, with the sun beaming down and all – and to celebrate the 31st commencement of the Games, Oakley replica has created a very special line just for the event. They’ve gone back to their roots with a throwback to their first performance products back in 1980.

Remember the neon green they were famous for? They’re back in the Green Fade collection. The Oakley Olympic team, which is comprised of 500+ top athletes from around the world, will be wearing the iconic green-colored frames, which are integrated with the latest in Oakley’s lens technology.


The replica sunglasses are fitted with the Prizm lenses, which are as good as it gets for athletic performance. There are different lenses depending on the activity, such as field, road, water, golf, daily and trail, and each lens is fine-tuned to those sports and their specific environments. The athletes will match the lens to their sport, to optimize their vision and performance in that realm.

In total, there are eight styles with six for performance (EVZero, Jawbreaker, Radar EV Path, Flak 2.0 XL and RadarLock Path) and two for lifestyle (Frogskins and Crosslink Zero RX). The EVZero are a rare find as they’re the brands first-ever to have a dual Iridium lens coating that has two Prizm tints, which will be particularly useful to the cyclists and runners.


“It might seem complicated, but basically the PRZIM technology helps reflect certain light,” says Tatiana Kalache, one of cheap Oakley’s Research and Development Performance Specialist. “What that means is Prizm optimizes contrast and lets you see details in the environment that would be missed by the naked eye. That’s critical for performance”.

The beauty is that all of the athletes – from all of the different countries – will wear the Green Fade collection in a sign of unity. So whether it’s American golfer Bubba Watson, Brazil’s Alison Cerruti of the No. 1 beach volleyball team or France’s Julien Absalon, (recognized as the greatest cross-country mountain biker), the 500+ athletes will all have the same-colored frames in green harmony.


If you want to join in, you can buy one of the 100,000 Green Fade shades in this limited edition at select retailers around the country.

Warby Parker Goes Global With Its First International Oakley Store


Eyewear retailer Warby Parker recently took steps outside the U.S. market with its first international store in Toronto. Co-founder and CEO Neil Blumenthal told Bloomberg that the company chose Toronto because it was a “densely populated, cosmopolitan, cultured, diverse city” like its home city of New York. Blumenthal noted that the brand generally “flourishes when there’s a large creative community.”

The Toronto store is Warby’s 35th retail store. Out of its 34 U.S. stores, 13 of its stores are in California and New York, while other states only have one or two stores. Let’s discuss what that expansion means for Warby, and whether or not it will alter its original business model.

A strategic shift

When Warby Parker was founded six years ago, it sold its glasses online to avoid brick-and-mortar markups and designed its own frames to avoid brand licensing fees. That streamlined business model enabled the company to sell affordable, custom-designed eyeglasses for less than $100.

Positive media coverage in Vogue, Elle, Esquire, and GQ generated plenty of publicity with minimal advertising. Warby’s trademark “Home Try-On” program, which ships five frames for customers to try on at home, made it easier for customers to buy glasses online. Customers could also upload selfies to “virtually” try on glasses, or order exclusive frames by following the brand on Snapchat. It also promised to donate a pair of glasses to charity for every pair purchased.

Simply put, Warby Parker was the antithesis of Luxottica, which dominates the eyewear market with its replica Oakley, Ray-Ban, and Persol brands, its portfolio of licensed brands, and brick-and-mortar chains like LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, and Sunglass Hut. But by opening new stores, will Warby’s margins decline and its business become less streamlined?

Why Warby is opening stores

Prior to its brick-and-mortar push, Warby sold its eyewear at temporary “pop-up” shops across the country. Blumenthal claims that those stores opened up a “road map” for a proper brick-and-mortar expansion to boost its brand awareness in hip, densely populated urban areas like New York and Toronto. That’s a stark contrast to Luxottica’s brick-and-mortar approach, which focuses heavily on suburban malls and retail outlets.

Warby’s brick-and-mortar stores enhance its e-commerce business instead of replacing it. For example, store employees can take pictures of customers trying on frames and email them the photos if they don’t want to make a purchase right away. Afterwards, the customer can purchase the frame via a one-click checkout from the email. Looking ahead, Warby plans to build its own point of sale system to process those payments and analyze customer relationships.

Warby is still launching pop-up shops to reach new markets. Last August, it signed its first national retail partnership with Nordstrom to open curated pop-up shops within its upscale department stores.

What about margins and profits?

Warby’s revenue nearly tripled from $35 million to $100 million between 2013 and 2015. The company isn’t profitable, but it’s unclear how deeply it remains in the red. But considering that Warby’s workforce grew from 60 employees to 500 employees between 2012 and 2015, and it keeps opening new brick-and-mortar stores, it’s likely that its expenses are rising and its losses are widening.

Warby doesn’t seem worried about near-term profitability, but its business model might need to be altered if its losses widen significantly or it goes public. To control costs, Warby might need to raise the cost of its frames, stop donating glasses to charity, and shutter stores that aren’t attracting enough foot traffic to strike a delicate balance between its brick-and-mortar and e-commerce operations.

Could other overseas markets be next?

Expanding into Toronto isn’t a huge leap for Warby Parker, but it might become a stepping stone into other Canadian cities like Vancouver. If it gains enough momentum in those markets, it might consider opening test stores in Europe and Asia. If that happens, Warby Parker could lay down the groundwork to challenge Luxottica – which doesn’t have much meaningful competition – in the future.

A secret billion-dollar stock opportunity

The world’s biggest tech company forgot to show you something, but a few Wall Street analysts and the Fool didn’t miss a beat: There’s a small company that’s powering their brand-new gadgets and the coming revolution in technology. And we think its stock price has nearly unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors!

How Oakley Replica Olympic Shades Could Help Athletes See Gold This Summer


Bubba Watson will see plenty of green on the Olympics golf course in Rio de Janeiro. But it won’t be the same green the rest of us see. Filtered through specially tinted Oakley shades, Watson’s version will have heightened contrasts that accentuate some colors and downplay others. It’s a modified view of the playing field that he and a handful of other Olympians hope will ultimately help them see another color this August: gold.

Whether it’s clarifying the subtle undulations on the fairway or highlighting white lines on race track, Oakley says its new Green Fade sunglasses aim to give athletes an edge by filtering light and creating what is essentially an artificial color spectrum optimized for the sport they play.

And before you scoff at the idea of performance-enhancing replica sunglasses, there’s actually some actual science (and logic) behind Oakley’s tinting technology. “If sunglasses filter certain colors, then the eye’s response curves will be responding to the transmitted colors and not sensitive to the blocked colors,” says Steven Jacques, an optics researcher at Oregon Health & Science University. “In other words, the wavelengths observed are now ‘more defined.’”

Defining specific wavelengths can have benefits for some athletes. Just ask Kerri Walsh, who will be wearing Oakley Replica Prizm field lens on the Copacabana sand in Rio. Walsh says the tinting technology enhances whites against blues and can help her track the volleyball against the sky. “Most competitions are in the middle of the day, and sun is a huge variable,” she says. “Seeing the ball as quick and clear as possible is a game changer.”

Filtering colors ultimately results in losing visual information, it can be a strategic sort of loss for athletes. “This could be an advantage if there were colors that were distracting,” says Jacques.

Lords of Light

Getting rid of or minimizing those distractions means fussing with the wavelengths in the visible portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Some of those wavelengths are shorter, like violet and blue, and some are longer, like orange and red. By using specific dyes in the polycarbonate they make lenses out of, cheap Oakley engineers can alter transparency and opacity to specific wavelengths. To see the subtle nuances of a blue ocean, for instance, engineers might screen the greens.


Most Prizm lenses have three or four distinct peaks in their light transmission profile. Highlighting those peaks creates a gap on either side of a specific wavelength. According to Oakley outlet, this tuning helps athletes pick up on nuances otherwise missed with the naked eye. Instead of washed out, dull, or flat landscapes, certain details and objects pop—like a baseball, for example. The Oakley field lens is supposed to make the white of a baseball to stand out against both a blue sky and a green field (colors also helpful for track athletes in Rio, who’ll wear them to help see painted lines). “It is very easy to dull white, but not as easy to make white even brighter,” says Wayne Chumbley, Oakley’s vision performance lab manager. “The only way is by dulling the surrounding colors.”

Now the only question is whether cool replica sunglasses can make you run faster.

New Oakley Sunglasses outlet store open in Hamilton Place

Hamilton Place Mall is has recently added new retailers, and a restaurant is in the works.

Replica Sunglasses store Oakley outlet is now open in Hamilton Place.

It’s located near the food court in a 1,944-square-foot space.

Oakley replica is the third retailer to open inside the two-story mall this year. It joins Vans, which opened in March, and Aerie, which opened earlier this month.

Summer replica sunglasses: The Oakley EVZero Range

— In the middle of summer, more often than not, we’re running through bright rays of sun. Keep the eyes protected with Oakley’s latest and best shades of the season.


Runs on days with full sunshine call for a proper set of shades. In mid-summer, the days are at their longest, meaning that more likely than not, runners are going to encounter rays of sunshine while out on their favourite routes. Running in summer comes with many rewards however running through the sunniest days of the year can result in dealing with glare and blinding conditions.

This summer, Oakley replica has got your covered with the EVZero Range glasses. This pair has so many runner-friendly features which are sure to make it one of the most popular this season. One of the first things that runners notice when testing out a new pair of shades is the weight. A too heavy pair will bounce up and down causing several distractions. But that’s not the case with the EVZero. Coming in at just 22g, they are incredibly light, and flexible so runners will get a proper fit. In fact, our testers found that this one of the of the lightest pairs that they had sampled.

It’s always a good sign when a sports apparel company takes feedback and criticism and adjusts new products accordingly. That can definitely be said of Oakley outlet uk. The Oakley Zeros series from the 1990’s is what the brand is building off of here. The models are similar in that they are both frame-less and light. Past criticisms of the old version were that there was not enough coverage. That has been updated for this model. Runners will notice that these are more shielded to keep the eyes safe from the wind and sun.


As one would expect from fake Oakley, the lenses are extremely high quality. These lenses are designed to make sure that endurance athletes can see the roads or trails ahead clearly regardless of the lighting conditions. Even when lighting is flat or when it’s constantly varying (like on shaded trails for example) runners can trust that these lenses will keep visibility as clear as possible.

Smaller features are not to be overlooked though. Oakley has a reputation with being consistently on-point with key features of their sports replica sunglasses, namely the nose piece and the arms piece. That’s no different in this case. The arms are light and will hug the face keeping them secure even on tougher terrain.

All in all, with their sleek, light design, and high quality lenses, we found these to be an all-round success and a model that runners of all abilities can count on.

Cheap Oakley’s golf-specific, G30 Iridium lens perfect for the course

The Oakley Flak Jacket XLJ, G30 Iridium golf-specific sunglasses are perfect for enhancing the details of a golf course.

Most of the replica sunglasses worn by players on the PGA Tour are made by Oakley Outlet. And it’s not just because the glasses look cool. Believe it or not, they can help your game.

Oakley’s G30 Iridium lens promises to provide more detail, more definition and more depth perception so you can analyze the slope and see the smallest variations in grass grain.

Here’s what cheap Oakley has to say about the glasses, which are offered in the Flak Jacket XLJ style in the colors Polished Black and Polished White:

You’ll have the performance of razor-sharp vision that helps you avoid the bunkers and the rough, along with balanced light transmission that lets you read every nuance of the green and precisely gauge ball speed. World-class golfers consider Oakley replica eyewear to be essential equipment, so if you really want to improve your game, don’t stop at the right club. Get the right lens: Oakley G30 Iridium.

The golf environment challenges your vision in very specific ways. We engineered the G30 Iridium lens with precisely balanced light transmission to give you the best possible clarity, contrast and depth perception on the course. For us, lens tints are a science and an art, and every aspect of G30™ Iridium® was designed to maximize your vision for the game.

Think you know where the pin is? If you’re looking through ordinary replica sunglass lenses, you’re probably wrong. Inferior lenses can magnify what you see and fool your brain into thinking the hole is shifted from its true position. They can also corrupt clarity, and with all the eye fatigue, you may as well add a penalty stroke to every hole. We solved those problems with High Definition Optics (HDO).

Fake Oakley HDO is a collection of patented technologies that ensure precise, accurate vision with razor-sharp clarity. We developed HDO for the world’s best athletes and for action sports where visual fidelity is the difference between going home with a medal and going home with a body cast. With HDO, you’ll see everything exactly where it is, and you’ll get the added benefits of unrivaled impact resistance and 100% UV filtering.

Oakley G30 Iridium is also available in a premium HDPolarized version that eliminates 99% of reflected glare.

The Flak Jacket XLJ frames provide superior comfort and — aside from the enhanced details of the course you’ll no doubt enjoy — you won’t even know you’re wearing fake sunglasses.
