I've been using Pivothead Durangos on my YouTube show since the fall of
2013, honestly can't think of one negative thing seriously.
For the size of the technology and ease of use plus the fact it's absolutely
true POV video they work.
I only use the Durango because I need a strong frame, they get seriously
banged around here on the show, serious abuse.
Considering how much use I put them through, I have 6 pairs charging all the time for a day's filming, use them in all conditions, +30°C to -30°C, rain, snow, I've only had one pair die. And that was only because I accidently threw them down on a cement floor off my head, not the technology's fault, 100% mine.
Pivothead recovered the video on them for me no charge, great service.
Check out my channel "50 Ducks In A Hot Tub" if you want to see what you can do with them. I work the farm with them on all the time.

easy discrete operational apparatus helps to maintain a nice private film session... most satisfactory is the hands-free environment created by the machine

I bought an original series Kudo a few years back and loved them for the motorcycle and many other activities. My son and Father both bought the Kudo as well. I just bought another pair of Durangos and not only is it a great product but the support was 2nd to none when I had questions. I love them and will buy more when these are old enough.

This is the 2nd pair I bought and the quality is excellent! I love them both. Thanks and I look forward to new designs!

I use this for work, as a public safety officer i deal with people everyday especially on traffic stops, easy to turn on and one click away to record, good hidden camera good point of view, i recommend this due to good quality and sound quality perfect! ... im looking forward to buy prescription lenses for the use of wearing it during the night also. But over all the looks are good, it does heat up at times, but hope nothing wrong happen in long term while having them. so far so good!

I've enjoyed my Pivothead Durango HD Cam Glasses. They are comfortable, easy to start and stop recording and I've had no issues in downloading to my Mac and Windows machines.
The video quality is exceptional but I was most impressed with the audio quality which comes across crisp and clean!
They are certaining worth the money! The next version, SMART, look to continue the advancement of the Pivothead glasses with SDK offerings along with a Streaming Service. A real game changer!
So long Google Glass! Hello Pivothead's, my new friends!

As some of you may already said, it depends on how you intend to use it. I find this product to be fantastic. Amazing pictures, amazing video quality with surprising stability. The only unstable thing is the fact that our heads move faster than our eyes, especially when you are watching a video.
I tried this for long rides on my motorcycle. I use this to record my rides. The video quality at slow and fast speed is very satisfactory. I watched many GoPro videos and this product is head to head with the best cameras out there. However, it beats all of them because you don't have to worry about mounting and riding with a camera mounted on top of your helmet. This looks like very cool sunglasses. I also ordered the blue lenses and they are super cool.
Now the down side, which every new technology has, is the sound. The microphone works perfectly if you are setting, walking or riding at a very low speed (<20mph). Once you pick up speed, the voice is very distorted and you can hardly understand what you are saying. I tried to cover the mic with a band aid. It actually works and improved slightly, but still not good enough at high speed to enjoy talking while riding. Pivothead certainly needs to spend some more R&D money on this then they will have the perfect product when it comes to action cameras.
I still love the product, the idea, the technology and don't mind spending the money to support it hopping for the next product to be a better one.

Works as expected plus more. Great video and sound quality. Accidentally ordered two of these and customer service resolved the issue.

The video quality is good. The audio quality is surprisingly good. There are only two things that bother me.
1. The style is pretty clunky. My goal with these glasses is to be inconspicuous. The pictures online made the style look fine, but in person...it's not. Every time I've entered a room wearing them, they are immediately the topic of conversation.
2. I read someone else's review that mentioned this. The 'aim' of the camera is a little high. It's high enough that I've cut off things that I wanted to be in the shot. I have to actively think about the aim for me to get good video.
For a product as unique as this, I would say they're pretty good. I'm hoping that the SMART glasses or the next generation addresses these concerns.

I use these glasses to primarily video capture catching fish, and I have noticed a few critical glitches. For starters, if you power them up and immediately hit the record button they seem to autoshut off after 10-15 seconds which means you miss most of your intended video - unless you pause to hit record again, which is hard if you are engaged in your activity.
Second, the battery drains fairly fast when leaving it "on" without "record" set e.g.: the blue LED so if you are doing that I recommend buying the battery pack available to connect to these as I have.
Finally, depending on your desired use these can easily be rated from very shitty, to absolutely amazing.
While I appreciate that Hero cameras can be mounted to helmets, it is simply not the same as this product. The video is TRULY FPV (first person point of view) and it cannot be beat. Although (CAVEAT) you will need to workout where the camera sees compared to where your eyes see, and depending on proximity you might think you are filming only to discover that you are not. It will take a learning curve, but is resolvable.
RE: depending on what you intend to use it for
Looks like your Pivotheads are not functioning correctly. After you see the blue LED illuminate you should be able to quickly press the record button and not have any issues. They should keep recording until you have pressed the record button for a second time stopping the video capture.
There are a few things we can look at to get your Pivothead functioning properly again. Head over to support.pivothead.com or contact us at email@example.com and we'll be happy to get your Pivothead working again and you back out on the water.
If you are having any other issues please let us know.
