mōzıware cımō is breaking new ground in the world of XR wearables.

It’s a hands-free headset that can be used for data capture and remote collaboration in many industrial settings. It’s built for safety, user-friendliness, and versatility.

It’s also exceptionally light.

Yes, at 155 grams, cımō is the lightest wearable you’ll find. In this article, we tell you all about its record-breaking lightness – and why it matters.

The benefits of a lightweight wearable

For many smart tech companies, lightness is desirable because it’s elegant. And at mōzıware, we also wanted to create something beautiful as well as functional.

But for us, lightness is about much more than just looks.

First off, cımō is built for industrial use. It’s essentially another form of workwear. And just like hard hats, goggles, and the like, it needs to be comfortable as well as practical.

Whatever your working environment, we want cımō to be as agile and discreet as possible.

In rugged work environments, comfort is closely tied to safety. In manufacturing, for instance, it’s not practical for workers to lug around a bulky device.

cımō’s world-class lightness, then, is there to make workers nimble, effective – and above all, safe.

Secondly, it’s about portability. One of the leading benefits of XR-enhanced devices is that they enable you to access documentation and communication apps without having to stop what you’re doing.

cımō’s 155-gram weight makes it easily portable – so your staff won’t get tied up in knots putting it on. Together with its intuitive voice commands, cımō’s portability makes it easy to use and fast to deploy.


On the factory floor, staff need to be safe and agile – but the two things don’t often go hand in hand. Safety measures can slow down productivity. And while that’s a sacrifice most employers are willing to take, there is a better way.

cımō allows for nimbleness, which can be especially useful in environments where users need to squeeze into tight spaces.

Just as the smartphone puts a powerful computer into your pocket, so cımō gives you advanced remote collaboration tools in a package so light, you’ll barely notice them.

At around half the weight of your average hard hat, cımō gives unparalleled access to tools that can boost decision-making on the frontline.

Energy and petrochemicals

Refineries, oil rigs, and other energy facilities require high standards of safety. Ten years ago, the idea that you could carry out a day’s work in such a setting with a powerful computer on your head would have seemed unrealistic.

cımō has made this vision come true – and it’s done so without sacrificing safety or portability. You can rest assured that your frontline staff are well-connected and able to use these tools freely and intuitively.


Wearables like cımō are transforming the healthcare sector. They can be used in both emergency rescue and critical care settings.

But like any other tool, the wearable has to be ergonomically sound – and that includes weight.

You wouldn’t expect a surgeon to use a five-kilogram scalpel. So why would you expect them to wear an uncomfortably heavy headset?

After all, both surgery and paramedical care take time. The headset has to be on for long periods.

cımō’s lightness makes it ideal for these settings. Surgeons can leverage its powerful tools without feeling any physical strain. This can aid focus and boost outcomes.

Rail transport

Data capture and remote collaboration can be highly beneficial for site surveys and repair jobs. cımō allows a remote expert to see through the frontline worker’s eyes.

This has powerful consequences for decision-making and the skills gaps that haunt so many enterprises.

But as with any other sector, tools need to be portable – especially if a worker is traveling long distances.

Our testing process has shown that cımō is comfortable to wear and astonishingly light. This makes it the ideal wearable solution in the rail transport sector.

A peek behind the curtain: mōzıware's product development engineer chimes in

We’re often asked, “How a device so light can be suitable for industrial use?”

You might assume that a 155-gram device has to sacrifice strength for portability. But we’re proud to say that cımō is built for industry and is rugged as well as pocket-sized.

This was partly a case of choosing the right materials. How could we make a device light enough to be worn at work that still meets industrial requirements?

Our product development engineer explains: “We took care to choose materials for the casing that were fit for use whether you’re performing surgery or a repair on the production line.

“So while we worked hard to make a device so light you barely notice it, we didn’t cut any corners with regard to ruggedization.”

This is a device built for industry. cımō has an IP66 dust and water resistance rating and has been drop-tested from 1.5 meters.

The power problem

Like all design processes, our team had to do a lot of problem-solving. One issue was power.

One advantage of cımō is that it can be used for long periods without discomfort – a real boon in the healthcare sector, to take just one example.

But we needed to outboard the power reserve to keep the device light.

“To solve this problem, we furnished the device with an additional battery pack,” says our engineer.  “This means that it can be used for long stretches with no sacrifice of portability or user comfort.

“In other words, cımō’s unparalleled lightness isn’t an add-on. It’s an integral part of what makes it comfortable, portable, and versatile.”

It’s why deploying cımō can empower your frontline staff with advanced remote collaboration and data capture tools – and it’s why you can speed up decision-making, boost productivity, and slash travel costs.
