Default Oakley Airwave Goggle

Just came across these...



I believe I read they go on sale tomorrow, and I believe it said they will retail for $600.

I think a lot of the features are pretty cool, but was thinking about the possibility of the "buddy tracker" feature being used, obviously in conjunction with a beacon, to aid in backcountry rescue...

Thoughts?

i think it is very interesting. i wouldn't get being i just ride resorts and it is not needed. But for some one who is riding back country a lot, it is a very useful tool.

How does the buddy tracker system work? I would guess everyone would need to have phone reception and have the same app running on their phones? So expensive too
