Don’t have time to waste searching for the perfect pair of sunglasses? Maybe you’re bored with having to head to the store every time you want to try on a new pair. Well, now you don’t have to! There are actually several easy ways you can use your smartphone to help you find the perfect pair of sunnies for you.
Your first stop should be to download the Glasses.com app (for iOS only) on your smartphone or tablet. The app lets you create a 3D model of your face with virtual try-on technology. After you’ve developed a perfect likeness of you, the app lets you try on sunglasses from a huge selection of options. You can also refine your search by selecting frame size, color, or price. There’s also free shipping and free returns, so even if you order online, you don’t have to worry about paying to receive or exchange your sunnies.
Another amazing app is from Warby Parker, which is a cool (yet still inexpensive!) eyeglass and sunglasses retailer. Similar to the Glasses.com app, Warby Parker’s app lets you upload pictures of yourself so that you can ‘try on’ the sunglasses from the comfort of your home. This app even lets you share the photos with friends and family, so you can get their opinions before you make a purchase. Plus, since you can use your smartphone to order a pair, you can check out with Apple Pay in a super easy transaction. These apps are also great to use if you want to purchase prescription sunglasses too.
If you’re on a pretty strict budget, head to the Lookmatic site on your phone. There you’ll discover that you can buy both glasses and sunglasses for just $65! They also have a 3D Live Virtual Try-On technology that lets you use a webcam to test out frames or a Photo Virtual Try-On option that uses a photo you’ve uploaded. Either way, you’ll be able to choose from a wide variety of styles that won’t hurt your wallet! If you do want to try on your sunnies in person, you can always head to a Winnipeg sunglasses outlet for more options.
You can also use your smartphone in one other way. If you’re always losing your sunglasses, consider getting an Orbit tracker. You just place the tiny Bluetooth tracker on the arm of your sunglasses. If you ever have trouble locating them, you just use the Orbit app on your phone to help track them down. Voila – you’ll never lose your precious sunnies again!
Stop shopping for sunglasses the old-school way, and use your smartphone to purchase your next pair!
