How is

different from competing solutions?

The goal of RealWear's developers was clear from the start. To create a product that can withstand the harshest conditions, is easy to use and delivers only what the user really needs.

There are many sophisticated devices of this kind on the market today, but most of them are very fragile, offer a lot of complex features at the expense of practicality, and above all prevent the user from getting a full view of the surroundings. They often require the use of non-verbal hand gestures etc. to operate them, which is not the most convenient way to work.

The RealWear Navigator 500, like its predecessor HMT-1, is designed to be used immediately without complicated setup. They will help, expand your options, but at the same time not limit you in any way. After just a short training they can increase work efficiency and simplify work processes.

Just like you take a flashlight where you can't see, you take the RealWear Navigator 500 when you need to navigate to successfully complete tasks in the harshest conditions.
