G2 HD glasses with camera for $54.59
Glasses with a video function have in some cases already been banned, since Google Glass there is discussion about where glasses can be worn and where not. Not all of these glasses with recording function are the same as a spy cam – it always depends on the use of the owner. The G2 HD glasses are designed to record 1080p video and 5MP photos. Just what for voyeurs or an exciting gadget?

Technology for everyday life?
We already had Bluetooth glasses in the test, which could not really convince us. However, it could not record any videos either, but the design was quite similar. The G2 HD glasses are advertised as an everyday object that can be used for driving a car as well as for children’s birthday parties or parachuting. I dare to doubt the latter. With the dimensions 15.0 (total width) x 3.6 (lateral frame height) x 15.0 (length of the temples) x 5.7 cm (width of a spectacle lens with frame) the glasses should at least fit on most noses and around most heads.
The glasses come with a USB cable to charge the glasses via micro-USB. The corresponding input is at the end of a bracket, as we already know it from the MOMON sc-8011-1. After a loading time of 50 minutes, you should be able to record 70 minutes in a row with your glasses. A quite considerable amount, if this is true in practice. However, this also requires a corresponding amount of storage space. The glasses already contain an 8 GB memory card, the memory can be expanded by up to 32 GB.
The videos can be recorded at a wide angle of up to 120°, with a weight of 40 g the glasses can also be worn. Not that the user only succeeds in filming his shoes with the weight. ? The material used is plastic, the glasses are operated with touch elements that are located on the glasses and can be pressed with the fingers.
We already know the operation via touch elements from the MOMON glasses, but the G2 has no step counter, no vibration or alarm function. The G2 is designed solely for filming and photography.
Glasses with video function: useful?
The glasses do not look particularly conspicuous, with this you can definitely (at a distance) also secretly take pictures without anyone noticing. This is of course not advisable, as it is against the law. Fitness wristbands of all kinds have already established themselves in everyday life, manufacturers and consumers still have some difficulties with glasses. In theory, video glasses such as the G2 HD glasses are well suited to filming a different perspective as a hobby filmmaker, for example when doing sports or reenacting conversation scenes.
In terms of price, there is not much against the video glasses, but it is questionable whether the glasses really deliver good images. The technical data speak for themselves, but as we already know from one or the other actioncam, we like to polish something up here. The high weight of 40 g could also be a shortcoming that makes it difficult to choose glasses. We find the idea behind the glasses quite exciting, provided that the implementation is right and the functions are not abused.To the gadget
