Razer Anzu Smart Glasses are the ultimate work-from-home wearable

Game in style while protecting your eyes with the Razer Anzu smart glasses.

What you need to know

  • Razer just launched its first pair of smart glasses aimed at gamers or anyone working from home.
  • The Razer Anzu feature blue light filtering and touch controls to navigate music or calls.
  • The Anzu come in two styles and are available starting at $199.

Razer is really feeling the pandemic vibe, which was first realized when it unveiled the Project Hazel RGB mask at CES. While that remains a concept, for now, the maker of some of the best gaming laptops decided to go another route with its work-from-home accessories. That brings us to the company's first pair of smart glasses, the Razer Anzu.

With the Anzu, Razer manages to create a pair of smart glasses that look good and help protect your eyes from the visual strain that can come from working from home. The Anzu features 35% blue light filtering lenses and additional polarized sunglass lenses with 99% UVA/UVB protection. With more people staying home these days, filtering blue light can promote better eye care, especially when sitting in front of a computer or gaming monitor for extended periods of time.

According to Head of Sales and Marketing at Razer, John Moore, this was a major inspiration for launching the company's first pair of smart glasses:

The Razer Anzu modernizes the wearable category in terms of convenience and blue light or UV protection. With Anzu, Razer is entering the market when there is a surge of people working from home – where eye protection, hands-free communication, and smart features are now in high demand.

Other features include Bluetooth 5.1 and open-ear speakers, so the audio experience may not compare to some of the best wireless earbuds like the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Pro here. That said, Razer touts impressive low-latency audio, which is ideal for gamers.

Speaking of gamers, the Anzu has a dedicated gaming mode and omnidirectional mics that make it easy to chat with friends during a gaming session or on a call. The glasses also have touch controls on the frame for easy navigation and access to smart assistants. There's also a dedicated app to help control settings like EQ, latency, firmware updates, and more.

As for battery life, the Razer Anzu can handle more than five-hours of usage but can last up to two weeks when in closed standby mode. And for the moments when you actually have to step outside the house, the Anzu features IPX4 water and dust resistance.

The Razer Anzu smart glasses are available in small or large and will come in two styles — rectangular or circular. The glasses retail for $200 at Best Buy and on Razer's website, and the company is also partnering with Lensabl for 15% off of prescription lenses when purchasing the Anzu.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead. One positive for Root coming into the game is that they'll be playing in front of a near capacity crowd at Egbaston, with the overwhelming majority of the expected 18,000 spectators set to be cheering on the home side. The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

Review: The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is a truly moving Alexa speaker

This new Echo Show is a real head-turner. The smart speaker market has grown quite a bit since Amazon introduced the first Echo in late 2014. However, after introducing the first Echo Show in 2017, the evolution of smart screened devices hasn't progressed nearly so quickly. There have mostly been incremental updates to the devices put out by Amazon, Google, and others like Lenovo, adding bigger screens and (marginally) better speakers, but nothing has really moved the category forward. As it has done several times before, Amazon is poised to usher in the next paradigm shift in smart speaker tech with its latest Echo device, the Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen). I've had the pleasure of using just about every Alexa and Google Assistant-enabled smart speaker over the past few years, so I feel well-suited to write this Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) review based on that background. I'm not going to get too far into the argument of which smart assistant is better — by now, you've

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.
