WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (BRAIN) — Kopin, the maker of the Solos smart glasses, is now sponsoring the Ironman North America and Ironman World Championships, where Solos will be the “Official Smart Glasses.”

The sponsorship agreement starts at the Ironman Lake Place this weekend.

“We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Ironman,” said Scott Fliegelman, director of strategic partnerships for Solos. “As a 5-time Ironman, I’m personally excited to share our amazing technology with today’s athletes, who are looking for improved performance, safety and fun.”

Solos smart glasses contain an augmented reality display and noise cancellation technologies that let athletes view metrics as if the data is floating in front of them. They can also receive information through audio messages.

“We know Ironman athletes are always looking for quality, ingenuity and as much valuable data as possible in the devices they wear,” said Stuart Selig, EVP of global partnerships at Ironman. “Solos smart glasses provide just that — an innovative product that will empower them to achieve optimal performance. We believe this partnership offers our athletes a unique training advantage across North America.”
