New features of RealWear Navigator 500

Modular design
Modular design allows you to personalize your device to support even more work scenarios. You can detach components, e.g. camera or display, and replace them with different ones.
Fingerprint sensor
RealWear Navigator 500’s power button is now integrated with the fingerprint sensor. It allows users to log into the system in a matter of seconds and start working on the go.
Programmable buttons
There are new programmable buttons – action, left, and right – located on the Navigator 500 body. With dedicated buttons you can boost effectiveness, still being able to use voice commands.
Battery indicator
The battery gauge is now available directly on the RealWear body, which makes it easier to prepare for work. You don’t need to switch on the device and put it on to determine battery level.
Face detection
RealWear Navigator 500 can automatically identify faces in digital images for autofocus. Keeping humans in focus might be useful in for example remote collaboration with experts or training documentation.
6X video zoom
RealWear Navigator 500’s advanced camera offers an enhanced zoom while maintaining HD quality. 6X telephoto zoom, along with low-light performance, provides clear photos with a lot of details visible.

Memory and storage

4GB of RAM (1GB more), a more efficient Snapdragon 662 processor, and 64GB storage (2x more) allow for more advanced calculations and applications.
