I LOVE the Pivothead HD Recording Sunglasses that I reviewed last month and used while in Cuba two weeks ago. They are comfortable, look good AND they record amazingly clear video. You can check out our full review of them here and see how they work in this video.
At $350, the glass aren’t cheap — although I have paid close to that for sunglasses that were simply… hum… sunglasses. And now that Pivothead has announced special holiday pricing, they are even more accessible. That’s right, Pivothead has dropped the price of their HD Recording Sunglasses by $50. And they will remain $50 less until the end of 2012.
That means that
Effective immediately, Pivothead is reducing the MSRP of all sunglass models and styles from $349.00 to $299.00, a $50.00 savings, through December 31, 2012.
I love the style I asked to review, but if you can rest assured there is something for you if they aren’t your style. After all, Pivothead currently offers four models in 17 styles. Each “is designed to satisfy the unique, personalized photographic and video recording needs of fashion-forward life enthusiasts, outdoor adventurers, extreme athletes, moms and dads, tourists, and more.”
