Review of the Viture One XR glasses: Redefining reality

To find out if mixed-reality glasses like the Viture One XR are the gaming glasses of the future or simply a neat virtual toy, we tested them.

Smart glasses are still somewhat more specialized, even if VR headsets are beginning to be utilized globally. One of the most well-known pairs of glasses on the market is the Viture One XR, which first drew interest from tech fans in 2023 when it launched a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $3 million.

Instead of having a built-in game or app library, the smart glasses link to a device and show the screen directly into your eyes. In other words, you can project a display directly onto your face if you own an Android phone, Steam Deck, or Nintendo Switch. into a lightweight, 1080p tiny OLED display. After weeks of testing, we’re prepared to present our verdict.

Key specs

  • Screen: 120-inch Micro OLED
  • Resolution: 1920×1080 per-eye
  • Brightness: 1800 nit
  • Contrast ratio: 5000:1
  • Field-of-View: 43 degrees

  • Features: USB-C to magnetic connector


The Viture One XR glasses initially resemble your typical bulky sunglasses. You probably wouldn’t even know these were XR glasses if it weren’t for the pronounced thick arms and obvious line where the lenses terminate.

The inside of the arms of the glasses are the only areas with branding, since they have been painted a sleek, glossy black. Because the “Viture” emblem is hidden from view, the glasses maintain their cohesive and polished look.

Nonetheless, the glasses do have a noticeable amount of thickness due to their integrated directional HARMAN AudioEFX speakers and tiny OLED 1080p capabilities. Compared to typical spectacles, especially the ones I’m used to wearing, the arms are significantly thicker. A little ridge sits above the frames and houses all the high-tech components within. It also has rotational knobs that you may change to customize the lenses to your preferred view.

Although they are not included with the Viture One XR glasses, lens shade coverings are available at the Viture shop for an additional $9. We were given ‘The Future Is On View’ coverings for this review, which are simple to put on and take off the frames as needed.

You won’t be able to disguise the fact that you’re wearing XR glasses once these lens frames are added. Having them feels necessary, though, because they obstruct ambient and natural light, making it difficult to focus on the OLED screen displayed in front of you. They also give that additional something because they come in a variety of design styles to fit any kind of aesthetic.

Mixed comfort

Since there is just one size available for the Viture One XR glasses, folks who value comfort above all else may want to reconsider wearing them. I’m accustomed to having something resting on my ears because I wear glasses every day. The Viture One XR glasses’ inward-leaning frames do seem a little snug on my head, though.

As with my regular glasses, I could probably take the smart glasses to my neighborhood optician to get them fitted correctly, but as of right now, there isn’t a mechanism for you to change the size on your own. In light of this, prolonged usage may result in pain in your temples, which may unintentionally induce headaches and nausea.
