As an original adopter of AYO (via Indiegogo) I was also one of the first to be seen in public with these. Not only were they great with energy in the office but they saved me on my travel overseas for business meetings. I first used them in 2017 on a flight to Germany and during my time there. The glasses allow you to set up your flight times and cities so that a schedule can be created for time of use, amount of use, and intensity of use for the glasses.
During this first trip there were some awkward moments being looked at with weird glasses, but they worked and my teammates knew that these were a great invention. My jet lag was diminished and my day one energy level was higher than any prior trip to Europe. This product was made available on Swiss Airlines in 2018 and is seen much more now than it was in the past. I can’t live without it when traveling across time zones and believe that it is a valuable investment for those looking to stay energized while home and keep jet lag at bay when traveling.

This piece of tech has been a lifesaver for me on business trips. Traveling, especially for work, can be hectic with a busy schedule and it is very easy to misplace important things. With Tile, I can attach them to things I normally misplace when I’m traveling like my wallet, passport or briefcase. Most people use these in their everyday life, but Tile has benefitted me the most when I’m traveling.
