Amazon is now offering pre-orders of $ 250 for its 2nd generation Echo Frames smart glasses. The new frames offer better sound quality and longer battery life than their predecessor. They are the first ultrasound frames that common people can buy, as the first iteration frames were only offered to selected customers via email invitation.

Anyone can wear Echo Frames, although you should see an optometrist to add prescription lenses to the smart glasses. Heck, even if you have 20/20 vision, you may still need an eye doctor to help you fit the frames on your face. Amazon has partnered with LensCrafters to make prescribing Echo Frames as easy as possible, although the company offers a guide for opticians unfamiliar with the smart frames.
The Echo Frames are available for pre-order for $ 250 and will ship on December 10. The $ 250 frames do not include a visit to the eye doctor or a set of lenses. Amazon is also announcing that it is discontinuing the unpopular Echo Loop smart ring, but the company plans to offer ongoing updates and support to current Echo Loop users.
