RealWear has started shipping RealWear Navigator Z1, an advanced Intrinsically Safe (IS) certified head-mounted wearable glasses.

The device has garnered significant pre-orders from over a dozen oil and gas industry countries, indicating global demand, including Saudi Arabia and UAE.

Navigator Z1, part of the Navigator Series, is powered by an advanced Qualcomm SnapDragon 6490 chipset with a built-in advanced AI engine.

The platform lays the foundation for RealWear’s broader AI Core vision for frontline workers.

The device now complies with strict ATEX/IECEx certifications.

The Navigator Z1 is a highly customizable tool designed for oil and gas work environments, offering voice recognition for hands-free use up to 100dBA and the ability to add an IS-certified thermal camera.

The thermal by FLIR thermal camera module is scheduled for release in March.

Dr Chris Parkinson, RealWear’s cofounder and CEO, said:"Navigator Z1 is laying the groundwork for an AI-enabled workforce in hazardous industries," he said.
