    "While I have never really been much of a sunglass person, these overall seem quite strong and could work for any fan of the look. The glasses themselves seem durable, charming, and pretty stylish. I honestly have no negative remakes to make here. "

    "Fitbit Alta is not going to be a good wearable device for the blind. Since they will not be able to see the output, it will not be helpful to them."

    "Not the biggest fan of this product, there are apps you can get on your phone that are cheaper and way better. The only function of this product is to tell you what color you're looking at, whereas apps out now can tell you the object AND color you're looking at. Unless you're just color blind, this won't help much. Don't know if the dress is blue or gold? This could help. But if you're 100% blind and don't even realize you're holding a dress, try out something else."

    "DigiOptix 8GB Smart Glasses Are an affordable way to experience VR. They are very easy to operate and I had no problems once putting them on. They are definitely not Google glasses, but I would say they're is definitely worth the money."
