According to Sony, the device will last five days on just a single charge.


Many smartglasses were seen at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Nevertheless, one managed to make a big impression – GlassUp.

In that way, consumers will not need to look away whenever they need to check their notifications or any other type of information. The people behind the device explain that it will be a top choice for doctors, drivers and professionals who cannot afford to be distracted.
