This brand has launched recenly very impressive products such as 360 Smart Security Camera, Smart Doorbell etc. Going forward, the brand has forayed now into lifestyle space and has launched Qubo Go Audio Sunglasses which are ideal for those who are bikers and hikers.
The Qubo Go Audio Sun Glasses can be called Smart Glasses to an extent as these offers host of features such as support for Siri and Google Assistant and these Glasses perform two functions of viewing and earphones tucked on your earlobes.
In the box, you will get Sunglasses with carrying case, charging cable with magnetic connector, warranty card and micro-fiber cloth for cleaning.
On the design front, these Sun Glasses have wayfarer style and are unisex. These Sunglasses are equipped with polarized UV protection lenses. These sunglasses are available in 5 lens colors – Classic Black, Cool Blue, Shimmer Yellow, Classic Green and Shiny Orange. If your eyesight is week then you can fit numbered UV protected glasses in the frame. These sun glasses are made of very good quality plastic and look premium. The unisex design of these glasses make it possible to fit on a wide range of face shapes and sizes. I have tried these glasses on few persons and observed that there is no issue of fitment.
The plastic frames are little wide as they houses two speakers, in-built battery on the right frame. Also on the right frame, two buttons are provided to navigate the menu, control volume, and take or end calls which are easy to operate. Summoning of smart assistant is quite smooth and these glasses also have an HD mic on either side. Google Assistant or Siri directly is instantly activated on the glasses by long-pressing the second button on the right frame.
The Qubo Go Audio Smartglasses can be synced with Qubo app which is available for both Android and iOS to control your music tracks and calls. You can pair these sunglasses with your phone via Bluetooth 5.1 and the process is very smooth. Once it is paired with your phone, you can accept or end calls directly from the glasses via physical buttons on the frame. As far as audio quality of these sunglasses is concerned, we can say that it is ok but not very good despite the fact that these sunglasses has Qualcomm AptX Audio support. Considering that these glasses will not be your primary mode for your audio requirements, the quality of audio while wearing it will not be much of an issue. The speakers of these sunglasses are so loud that the person standing or sitting besides you can hear it.
The battery life of these sunglasses can last upto five hours depending upon the usage. The charging time is quite long as it does not have USB Type-C support. These smartglasses can be charged with magnetic connector which comes in the box, by placing it on the slot given on the right frame. All the hardware like magnetic connector, buttons on the frames and overall quality of the frames is of premium quality. You cannot distinguish between an ordinary good quality sunglasses and Qubo Go as all the craft is hidden inside the two frames.
These glasses are slightly heavier than the conventional glasses and long duration of wearing it can result in pain on your earlobes. But these sunglasses look trendy and with its incorporated features of audio and pairing of smartphones, you need not carry your earphones. These sunglasses are ideal when you are driving or on hiking. These sunglasses are priced Rs. 5990 which can be expensive for some but for those who are always on move and want two products tucked into one then these sunglasses will be ideal for them.
