How do I put my M300 together and what are all these parts called?
To Connect to the Glasses Frames:
The M300 uses a “rail mount” system to slide the battery and device onto the glasses frames. They can be mounted on either the left or right side.
Grab the micro battery and locate the cutout where the power cable goes. The opening for the rail mount is at the exact opposite end and side of the battery.
Line up the opening for the rail mount on the micro battery with the rail on the glasses frames on the desired side.
Push the battery onto the rail. It should have some resistance, but not too much. If there is too much resistance it is likely not lined up properly. Remove the battery and try again.
Repeat for the device side.
To Connect the Power Cable:
Align the positioning tab on the heel of the connector with the
corresponding indent in the female connector on the Hot-Swap Battery
Rotate the front edge of the connector down until its spring clip
clicks into place
The connectors on each end of the Power Cable are interchangeable and can be connected to either the Hot-Swap Battery or Main Unit. The tab on the heel of the connector which secures the connector can be used to help align the connector for a proper connection.
How do I properly charge the device? (2 amp adapter)
Your M300 Smart Glasses contain two batteries, both of which must be fully charged prior to their initial use. The Hot-Swap Battery module contains the primary battery and a standby battery is contained in the Main Unit to keep the M300 powered during swapping of the Hot-Swap Battery modules. The Hot-Swap Battery can be charged independently using a USB power source providing a minimum of 500mA. You can also connect the Main and Hot-Swap Battery units together using the Power Cable to charge them simultaneously using a USB power source providing a minimum of 1.5A.
Standard USB ports on computers provide only 500mA. A USB power source providing a minimum of 1.5A is required to charge the M300 while connected to the Hot-Swap Battery.
Name the buttons and their short press actions.
If the device is on the right side of your head the buttons are on the top, if on the left they are on the bottom. Feel for 3, big, chunky buttons along the top side of the device going from your eyeball toward your ear. The first button is #1, the one in the middle #2 and the one closest to your ear #3.
Short press #1 and #2 to move around, zoom in, zoom out and navigate menus.
Short press #3 is your “do something button” such as take a picture, select this mode, choose this WiFi network, type this letter.
Practice short press button navigation.
During this time allow the students to practice navigating in both directions on the home screen. If they get stuck, explain the “master escape hatch” for a long press of button #2 to get back to the home screen.
Name the buttons and their long press actions.
Long press #1 to bring up menus on any screen (including the home screen!). This is how we change modes in Cyber Eyez.
Long press #2 to go back to the Vuzix Home screen. We call this the “Master Escape Hatch.” If you’re ever stuck, Long press #2 to get home.
Long press #3 goes back one screen. If you have opened Settings, then Apps, then Browser for example, you can get back to Apps by long pressing #3. You can also exit the Cyber Eyez menu and go back to Cyber Eyez by long pressing #3.
Practice long press button navigation.
Ask students to open Cyber Eyez and open the menu with long press #1 and change to any mode.
Ask the students to long press #2 to go back to the Vuzix home screen.
Ask the students to open Cbyer Eyez again. Open the Cyber Eyez menu. Short press #3 to select Reading Assistant. Long press #3 to go back to the main menu.
How do I connect Wifi? QR and Manual (https://qifi.org/)
Setting up WiFi can either be the easiest or most difficult thing you do depending on which method you pick :). The methods are the same for the M100 and M300 except for one minor screen difference.
The Easy Way – QiFi
On your pc or phone, open a browser and go to QiFI.org
Enter your network name in the SSID field
Enter your WiFi network password in the Key field
Click the Generate button
Make sure QR code is visible on the screen (you might have to scroll down a little)
On the glasses, Navigate to the Vuzix home screen
Navigate to and launch the Settings app
Short press button #1 to highlight WiFi
Short press button #3 to open WiFi
Long press button #1 to open the menu
Short press button #1 until you get to QR Code
Short press #3 to launch the scanner app
Point your glasses at the QR code generated earlier. When the glasses recognize the code, you will hear a beep.
Wait patiently…it may take up to a minute or so…and…WHAMMO! WiFi
The Hard Way
Navigate to the Settings app on the home screen and open it.
WiFi is the first option in the list. Short press #3 to select it.
Enable the WiFi by toggling Off to On by short pressing #3.
The M300 will then scan for available networks.
Short press #1 to scroll down to the network you want to connect to
Short press #3 to select it.
A standard Android keyboard will come up if the network is password protected. Use this keyboard to enter the password. The touchpad and buttons can be used to navigate the keyboard.
How do I open Cyber Eyez?
From the Vuzix home screen (Long press #2 “Master Escape Hatch”), short press #1 until you hear “Cyber Eyez selected.” Short press #3 to open Cyber Eyez. You will hear, “Cyber Eyez is ready. Current mode is” and whatever mode you last used.
What do the short and long press buttons do in Cyber Eyez?
Short press of #1 zooms in, short press #2 to zoom out and short press #3 to take a picture. When the menu is up, short press #1 to scroll down, short press #2 to scroll up and short press #3 to make your selection.
Long press #1 to bring up the menu. Long press #2 will take you back to the Vuzix home screen (“Master Escape Hatch”). Long press #3 will take you back one screen. For example, if you are in the Settings screen and don’t want to make any changes, but just go back to Cyber Eyez short press #3 will take you back.
Practice zooming and capturing.
During this time ask the students to short press #1 repeatedly until they hear “Maximum zoom.” Short press #2 repeatedly until you hear “Minimum zoom.” Short press #3 to take a picture and hear the result for your current mode.
How do I open the Cyber Eyez menu to select a new mode?
Long press #1 to open the menu. Short press #1 to scroll down through the list. If you pass the one you want, short press #2 to go back up the list. When you find the mode you want, short press #3 and you will hear Cyber Eyez say, “changed to [your selected] mode.”
How do I power down/up the device?
The power button is a small, round button on the side of the device where the swipe pad is. Is located just forward of the swipe pad.
To turn on your device:
Connect your power supply (micro battery with lanyard cable or USB adapter to power bank). Usually the device will boot up automatically. If not, press the power button for 3 seconds.
To turn off the device:
From the Vuzix home screen (long press #2, “Master Escape Hatch”), press the power button for a few seconds. A screen will appear with 3 options, Power Off, Notifications and Flashlight.
