You Can Now Order North Focals Through an App
North, the company behind the Focals smart glasses, is about to make their flagship product a heck of a lot easier to purchase. The company announced today a way for consumer to order the glasses online via the new Focals Showroom app. Currently, consumers would have to either visit one of North’s two permanent showrooms—located in Brooklyn and Toronto—or wait for the mobile Focals showroom tour to hit their hometown.
The only hitch: You’ll need to have (or borrow) an iPhone X or later with Apple’s FaceID system.
Through the app, North will take detailed measurements of the customer, which can be used to make prescription or non-prescription Focals. From there, North will build the glasses and ship them directly to the customer. In the packaging, the customer will receive their product along with detailed instructions for setting them up and making the final fitting adjustments—which previously required a return trip to a North showroom.
