What's the difference between the models?

The biggest difference between the M400 and M4000 AR Smart Glasses is the so called "waveguide" on the M4000. This is the see-through optic display that can show extra information to the user. The M400 also has a display, but in that case it's an OLED panel display and the view you get as a user will be slightly smaller compared to the M4000. The "waveguide" on M4000 is a cool add-on, but it's not so functional if you are in a bright environment, for example outdoors.  For both models, Vuzix offers upgraded versions (their extended series) that have longer run time and more powerful battery.

When comparing the M400 and M4000 with the Vuzix Blade 2, there is a bigger difference as the Blade 2 is a completely different model. The Blade 2 is built in a more ergonomic way with means they are easier to use for a long period of time without putting strain on you. They are also one complete device with eye protection built in, rather than several connected-together parts, with similiar screen technology as the M4000. On top of the physical differences, the Blade 2 is also a newer updated model with better computional power.
