When we initial trip on a intelligent coupler that Levi’s and Google teamed adult to make, we competence forget for a second that it’s anything other than a run-of-the-mill denim jacket.
And that’s what creates it so great.
The coupler — technically called a Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard by Google — debuted in September. It looks like a customary denim jacket, though one slap has conductive threads woven in and a place to snap on a Bluetooth tab that pairs with your phone. The coupler costs $350 and is accessible on a Levi’s website.
The Jacquard coupler is for a really specific form of chairman — namely, someone who commutes by bicycle. The thought is that if you’re roving your bike and wearing headphones, we can leave your phone in your slot and use a coupler to control a some-more essential things like directions and music. It’s dictated to discharge distractions and keep we protected but sacrificing your consistent need to be connected.
I’ve been wearing a coupler on and off over a final few months. we don’t invert by bike, so I’m not accurately a dictated customer. But we do write about opposite forms of wearables, and we adore fashion. If anyone should be vehement about this product, it’s me.
