    Pivothead 1LJ1 Reviews

    Kudu Matte Black 1080p Video Recording Sunglasses is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They work great, but... The camera works just fine. The thing that I didn't like was that they looked like the big, over the prescription glasses that some older people wear. This wasn't a good look for me personally. Also, the app is garbage!
