SunglassesTrendz That Help Your Eyes as Well as Your Look
This is a page from SunglassesTrendz with general information about designer sunglasses. Eyewear is a hugely important industry and wearing sunglasses is not just about making a fashion statement, there is plenty of evidence that our eyes need protection from damaging light rays.
But finding the right frames and lenses is not always easy. Many frames look great online but can be most unflattering when you put them on. There are lots of ways you can cut down on the effort to find the sunglasses that flatter your face and enhance your lifestyle.
We have blogs on picking sunglasses that will fit your face, on what are the most sought-after shades and how far manufacturers will go to sell you a pair of high fashion branded sunglasses.
We have to help you choose from designer sunglasses, whether it is worth paying extra and why sunglasses can be good for your eyesight. We also take a long look at lenses and ask how long UV protection will last, what types of lens give what level of protection and how lenses are tested for optical clarity and toughness.
Sunglasses, spectacles with tinted lenses, were originally a purely practical safety device, designed to protect the eyes from excess sun and glare. In the twentieth century, however, they became an important fashion accessory, whose use and meaning continues to evolve.
Sunglasses might be a small accessory, but they have a large impact. A great pair of sunglasses can change your face, your style, and even boost your mood a bit. Just look at the rise of—and controversy around—tiny sunglasses for the proof. But those micro shades are no longer dominating personal style the way they did in summer’s past. Instead, the sunglasses market has exploded into stylish yet wearable shapes that combine refreshing new details with old classics, and quirky takes on trends we’ve seen resurface from the past.
Eyeglasses can help people see the real you, or they can help create the image you want. The key is to find the right eyeglass frames to match your personality and lifestyle.
Classic shapes such as ovals, rectangles and almonds
Traditional colors of gold, silver, brown, gray and black
In plastic frames, no bright colors or unusual shapes
Titanium or stainless steel frame materials are good choices, as are rimless frame styles.
For colors, silver, gunmetal, brown and black generally are good choices because they match well with a variety of business suits. Golden tones, tortoise patterns and espresso are good choices for business wear for women and men alike.
With everything telling you the time now — smartphones, tablets and appliances — watches are worn for much more than utility. Women are especially embracing timepieces to suit their individual style. You’re going to want one for every mood and occasion.
Notifications: Smartphones display notifications to alert you of important events or activities. The types of notifications differ; devices connected to a smartphone may simply mirror the phone's notifications on your wrist, but other smartwatches display notifications that only a wearable could provide. For example, the newest Apple Watch includes a fall sensor. If you fall while wearing the watch, the watch senses your subsequent movement; if it doesn't detect any, it'll send a series of escalating notifications. Fail to respond to the notification, and the watch will assume you're injured and alert authorities on your behalf.
Apps: Beyond displaying notifications from your phone, a smartwatch is only as good as the apps it supports. App ecosystems vary, and they're tied to either Apple's or Google's environments. Smartwatches with a dedicated purpose, such as hiking or diving, generally support the apps they need to accomplish that purpose without the opportunity to add other kinds of apps.
Media management: Most smartwatches paired with smartphones can manage media playback for you. For example, when you're listening to music on an iPhone using Apple's AirPods, you can use your Apple Watch to change volume and tracks.
Answer messages by voice: Remember the old Dick Tracy comics, where the hero detective used a watch as a phone? Modern smartwatches running either the watch OS or Wear OS operating systems support voice dictation
Fitness tracking: If you’re a hard-core athlete, a dedicated fitness band is likely a better choice than a smartwatch. Still, many smartwatches include a heart rate monitor and a pedometer to help track your workouts.
GPS: Most smartwatches include a GPS for tracking your location or receiving location-specific alerts.
Good battery life: Modern smartwatches feature batteries that will get you through the day, with normal use, with a bit of juice still left to go. Battery use varies; the Apple Watch typically gets 18 hours of normal use on a single charge, while the Pebble gets two or three days.
