Con's: poor audio quality. Yeah I get it is designed for voice, but if you want music, it is low quality.
ear pieces creek with the flexing with the plastic to the point you want to rip it off your face and stomp on it. bad design.
Lots of disconnects during a run. So tired of the voice saying she lost connection.
overall I really, really don't like it. Its not the concept, but the issues actually using it. It is heavy, low quality audio and I'm now to the point where I keep the ear piece arms unplugged due to the annoying sounds it makes. I shouldn't have to oil the joints. If you compare to say wireless beats audio and a nice lightweight sport glasses, it is a POS. After six uses of it with the ear pieces I really can't stand it anymore.
On the first pair, the right ear piece would not stay connected. Unplugging and re-inserting the earpiece would get it to connect for a minute or so, but would always drop out. When it was connected the sound quality was very poor. Low volume even when turned up, with crackling in the background. The second pair, the ear pieces worked, but the center hinge point on one of them was loose and the ear piece would not stay where placed. The sound quality was a little better than the first pair, but still not a very good quality, especially for a device this expensive. Overall, the material choice and the execution of design could have been much better.
On both pair, the touch slide/volume control was, more often than not, unresponsive. I almost feel one side should have been up, and the other side down. Sliding your finger on a responsive device when running is difficult enough, let alone one that is a unresponsive as this one is.
The app that goes with the glasses works okay enough, but doesn't have many options as far as workouts go. As an example, I would like to be able to set a goal time for a given distance and have my "coach" let me know if I'm on pace for that or not. Maybe it does have this option and I just didn't see it, but overall, it does seem very limited.
Hoping a future release of both the glasses and app are improved, as the concept seems like a great one, and something I would definitely like to use.
After a few weeks of use, I'll update with some additional thoughts. I can think of a few changes that would help - as noted, adding biking and running plans (maybe actual triathlon plans, with an understanding that you're not wearing them in the water, but can at least accept updates after you do the proscribed workout).
Second, allowing you to upload or add your own custom workouts. Outside of their training plan, you are limited to free running, which means you can't have it chime in to tell you to speed up or slow down unless you're on their custom plan.
Finally, syncing with other services - Garmin Connect, Strava or Training Peaks, for example. Maybe you run occasionally without the glasses (or perhaps for a swim, as mentioned) - a sync with another service could help easily track that workout in the Oakley app. Beyond that, the custom workouts require you to run or bike a few times to get your zones set before it can plan custom zones. If you can sync with other services, it can base those zones on prior workouts rather than having to recreate them.
Of course, I'm optimistic that Oakley is working on all of these things - in which case they will be an excellent training product.
