The worst part about buying sunglasses is the hassle of finding the perfect ones. I don’t know about you, but I kind of hate having to stand there in stores looking in that little mirror and putting on every single pair and mugging it up until I find “the” pair. And now that we are living in a post-pandemic world, we don’t want to spend all day in stores, much less touch a million pairs of sunglasses that everyone else has already put their paws all over.
Bollé, a company famous for their sunglasses, goggles, and bike and ski helmets, has solved all of the above problems with a new way of shopping for sunglasses. How would you like to try on their entire line…from home? Sign me up!
Bollé has introduced a new lens called Volt + which uses artificial intelligence in evaluating 20 million lens formula combinations. The lens on these glasses will enhance all colors, making these glasses a top of the line selection with the most complete high contrast lens.
There are 15 styles available in the Volt + and as mentioned above, you can test them all out from home. There’s a “Try On” and a “Try Out” Augmented Reality experience on Bolle’s Instagram page. I clicked on each of the models from my phone in the comfort of my own living room and “tried on” every single one of them. My kids had a lot of fun with this experience too, as it was just like using the face filters that they love experimenting with pretty much every time I leave my phone unattended. You can not only pick your style from this Instagram feature, but you can try different rim colors also.
Using this technology, I have determined which glasses look best for my tastes and preferences. I am really looking forward to receiving a pair of the GLORY style frames! This process was relatively simple, and probably even moreso if you are more proficient than I am on IG (not a hard thing to accomplish).
Check out the QR code below and you can tap onto the “Volt + Experience” at the bottom of the screen and select the style you want to try on. There’s also a demo video available so you can get a taste of what shopping the Bollé Volt + options looks like.
