What is Sportiiii?
Sportiiii (pronounced “sport-eyes”) is the first Heads Up Display system (HUD) made for athletes that communicates critical racing/training zone data via 7 multi-colored LEDs and built in speaker system. The Sportiiii unit attaches to virtually any pair of glasses and its flexible boom containing the LEDs is placed in your secondary visual space, enabling you to focus on what’s important – maximum performance. The speaker does not cover the ear making it safe to wear in race situations.
What will I see when wearing the unit? An alpha-numeric display?
No. you will not see an alpha-numeric overlay. Having alpha-numeric, or “numbers and letters” in front of you, would cause you to look away from the road, and refocus on the letters and numbers. The result would be the same as looking at a watch or your cycling computer and would be a distraction from the road, a break in form, and a general decrease in safety and performance.
