To continue, the front of the box displays an illustration of the smart glasses. Above this is the name Epson, while below the illustration is the name of the product and its model. Other than that, there are no other details and information written on the box and Epson really did keep things simple so you can just go straight to opening the package to see the Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses itself.

When you open its lid, you will find two pieces of cardboard which keeps the items under it, protected while in transit. You will see that Epson really took a lot of time with their packaging since each of the accessories that are included in the box are individually packed in its own plastic wrap. This is to guarantee that each item will arrive at your doorstep, complete and intact.

The items in the box include an AC adapter, USB cable, plug attachment, belt clip screw, belt clip, cable retainer, one dark clip-on shade, a carrying case that contains the Epson Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses itself, a user manual, and a quick setup guide.
