Swarovski Optik AX Visio | The Next Step in Smart Binoculars

In a technological leap that combines precision optics with cutting-edge AI, Swarovski Optik has unveiled the AX Visio, a pair of smart binoculars that redefine the art of birdwatching and wildlife observation. Designed in collaboration with renowned Australian industrial designer Marc Newson, these binoculars are not just a piece of equipment; they are a technological marvel, promising to elevate your outdoor experiences to new heights.

The Swarovski Optik AX Visio is a testament to five years of meticulous development, featuring the brand’s precision 10×32 optic systems and an intricate assembly of 390 hardware parts. The result is a set of binoculars that not only provides a 1,000-yard field of view but also delivers crystal-clear images with unparalleled sharpness and color fidelity, while orientation is made easy with the inclusion of a compass function with an integrated tilt angle that assists in navigation.

At the heart of AX Visio’s innovation lies its in-lens artificial intelligence system—an integrated operating and object-recognition marvel that can identify over 9,000 species of birds and animals with just the touch of a button. During a recent test at CES, these smart binoculars accurately identified an ‘American kestrel’ within five seconds, showcasing the power of their technology. While the speed might be slightly challenging for fast-moving birds, the overall experience is undeniably cool and promises to enhance any wildlife-watching adventure.

The AX Visio’s multimedia capabilities take wildlife observation to new heights. Equipped with a 13MP camera and the ability to shoot 1080p video, these binoculars let you capture the essence of your encounters seamlessly. The Swarovski Optik Outdoor app acts as a hub for all your multimedia content, allowing for easy wireless transfer, management, and sharing of your stunning photographs and videos.

One standout feature is the ‘Share Discoveries’ function, adding a social layer to your wildlife exploration. As arrow markers pop up in the viewfinder, you can guide a friend or fellow adventurer to the exact location of your exciting wildlife encounters. It transforms the solitary act of observing nature into a shared experience, fostering a sense of community among outdoor enthusiasts.

The Swarovski Optik AX Visio comes with accessories that include an RB rechargeable battery, an RBC battery charger, an FSB functional side bag, a UCS universal comfort strap, an eyepiece cover, an objective lens cover, soap & brush, optics lens-cleaning cloth, and a USB charging cable.

The Swarovski Optik AX Visio binoculars carry a $4,799 price tag and are set to hit the market in February 2024. With a meticulous focus on precision optics, artificial intelligence, and multimedia capabilities, these smart binoculars redefine the way outdoor enthusiasts connect with the natural world.
