Oakley Airwave 1.5 goggles combine world-class performance, protection, and comfort with a heads-up display that lets you view incoming calls and texts from your iPhone via Bluetooth wireless and the Oakley Airwave Snow app. Airwave 1.5 integrates GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and more with a host of onboard sensors to give you instant access to a world of information. The latest edition offers a broader range of connectivity, new integration with social media, enhanced display graphics and improved battery life.
Track location and performance
You can find your location with preloaded maps available for hundreds of resorts worldwide, and even track friends in your group. Measure your performance with sensor information that includes altitude, speed, and vertical descent data, and view jump analytics that show number of jumps and airtime. Oakley added onboard Wi-Fi to Airwave 1.5 so it can connect wirelessly to compatible devices. Bluetooth connectivity allows pairing with your iPhone for immediate viewing of incoming calls and text messages—and even lets you access and control your playlists.
Enhanced Bluetooth connectivity
Bluetooth is even better with Airwave 1.5. To accommodate the full bandwidth of iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, and iPhone 4s, Oakley integrated an MFi chip. So you get and improved wireless connection that enhances pairing, faster and more reliable data transfer, and easier transfer of web information from your iPhone to the Airwave display.
Stay connected to social networks
With Airwave 1.5, you can see Facebook messages in real time while you're on the hill, and respond to them quickly via configurable, preset messages on the Airwave display. Other types of messaging are part of the handy consolidated view, including iMessage and SMS via your iPhone. Airwave 1.5 also lets you post graphics and messages to Facebook. You can even receive real-time feedback when a friend "likes" your post.
Thanks to prism technology, your first time using Airwave will be an eye-opening experience. When you're active on the mountain, you have clear and open vision without obstruction or distraction. When it's time to stop and review your performance or get vital information, you simply move your eye toward the miniature prism lens. Prism technology makes the displayed information appear as though you're viewing a 14-inch display from a distance of five feet. And thanks to the horsepower of a new processor, things look even better on the new edition of Airwave. It has the same rich resolution, but graphics appear sharper and smoother, and video streaming is fast and fluid.
Fast and easy
Oakley Switchlock Technology makes the lens changing process quick and hassle-free, allowing you to take advantage of a wide array of optional lens tints that optimize vision for environmental conditions. For maximized performance, F3 anti-fog technology is paired with a dual-vented lens, a premium design engineered with semi-flush geometry for wide peripheral vision. Oakley Plutonite lens material filters out 100% of all UV light, and optional lenses with Iridium coatings balance light transmission.
Tough, lightweight construction
The durable chassis is made of lightweight O Matter that stays comfortably flexible, and O-Flow Arch technology reduces nasal pressure to improve airflow for free breathing. With fixed O Matter outriggers for the interchangeable strap design, you get a balanced fit—with or without a helmet—while a moisture-wicking triple layer of fleece foam at the facial contact zone provides all-day comfort.

Secondly, you have to think Need to improve battery as it ran out after 2 hours and I was only using the speed and vertical page. Secondly, you have to think about the safety of a product that offers the ability to look at your speed while skiing when you need to be watching where your heading.

I love this.
Being able to track your day, do a run count, have the time without taking off your watch is awesome. The HUD is conveniently out Being able to track your day, do a run count, have the time without taking off your watch is awesome. The HUD is conveniently out of the way, so you only see it when you want to. It is not a distraction in any way, but great data right there when you want it. I've been using mine for 2 seasons. Two thumbs up. …
