Not sure... always knew about it.

My fascination with Oakley started in the early 90's when I was in high school. I was 15-16yrs old and competing as a Junior road cyclist and Oakley was making their entry into that market with their optics. I had always wanted Oakley's, but was always too cash strapped needing to invest my funds into upgrading my roadie, riding gear, travel to races & race entry fees... cycling was, and still is, and expensive sport. I had glasses at the time, and Oakley was just bringing the Sub-Zero with Optical Inserts to the market. A cash strapped Junior had no chance of affording this cutting edge technology... I stopped competing after Junior 15-16 Nationals, as a CAT3, and slowly started transitioning to a normal high school life.

It was years later in 1997, after I had stopped competing, had a steady job, and had started wearing contacts, that I purchased my first Oakleys... the Eye Jacket from a Sunglass Hut (still have the receipt). They were everything I imagined and the fit was amazing. I still have them, with the original lens, which have seen their fair share of abuse. They had to be warranty replace twice due to a weak point in the arms, but Oakley replaced them no questions asked. I knew I had found a company that stood behind what they sold...

Over the next 10 years, I slowly acquired several more Oakleys... A-Wires, C-Wires, Half Wires. During this time I met Sarah (I was wearing my Eye Jackets when I first caught her eye), I started my career & we married and started a family. It wasn't long before I was starting to purchase Oakleys for my wife. She lost her first ones into the Gulf of Mexico, they were Fives (Root Beer in color). I replaced them eventually and she then lost those in the Atlantic Ocean years later (it wasn't meant to be). Later in 2004, I purchased her Dartboards... we still have them. The Dartboards were amazing, she wore them every day... this is the point in time that I knew I had created a problem. We were now both obsessed with Oakley Optics.

The Jacksonville O Store opened at some point in 2005... the Dartboards were one of the first purchases I made there and in 2006 I purchased my X-Metal Plasma Juliets (which I had the rivets and membranes replaced at HQ in 2013). December 7th of 2006 was the last purchase (.45 Caliber Jacket) I made at the Jacksonville O Store (029); January 2007 I learned the O Store was closing... sad day; it was my favorite store in the mall to go visit. I would spend 30-60 min in the store talking with the staff about everything Oakley. Goodbyes were exchanged and Jacksonville was Oakley-less.

In September 2007, my wife & I went to NYC for the first time. We took a trip down to SoHo and thought it would be a good idea to find the O Store down there. We had heard about it from the staff at the old Jacksonville O Store. Once we stepped foot in the door, we were both floored, me probably more than my wife. I remember purchasing my first "destination tee" from them, the NYC City Scape.

The SoHo O Store was #2 for me... after this, I sought out O Stores when I traveled to purchase my optics and t-shirts. It wasn't until I started traveling for business in 2009/2010 that I really started visiting more and more Oakley Stores. Since I didn't have an O Store in town, I would do my shopping for clothes when I traveled. Eventually Oakley Women arrived, and now I was bringing home clothes for my wife too...

After 2 years of shopping Oakley while I travel, the rumor showed true in mid-2011, an Oakley Store was returning to Jacksonville; the St Johns O Store (...I still call them O Stores). During this summer (2011), we made a road trip up to Maine, from Florida, for a wedding and stopped at close to 15 O Stores/Vaults... I was pushing close to 35 Oakley Store visits by this point. And in October of 2011, Oakley was open once again in Jacksonville. I immediately stopped in, introduced myself to the Store Mgr. and developed an amazing relationship with her and the staff there.

I still continued to travel... my travel actually increased substantially, and visits to O Stores & Vaults did as well. I would pick-up items at these stores that the store in Jacksonville didn't carry. Then upon return, stop in and share my travels, pictures of stores I visited with everyone; this is why I call the store in Jacksonville, my "Basecamp" in my pictures. I always try to make my larger purchases at Basecamp to support my local Oakley Store; I don't want to lose it a second time. Often times I would hold off making smaller purchases on the road if I knew it was available at Basecamp.

You can find my O Store & Oakley Vault photos on Facebook:

This album hosts all the photos I have taken of the O Stores & Oakley Vaults I have visited during my travels throughout the years? there is only 1 store I do not have pics of that I have been to, the former Jacksonville O Store in the Avenues Mall. The one that started it all.

I make a point to grab a picture of the store front and then one with me in front of the store. Sometimes I take more pictures, especially when I come across locations that were uniquely designed. My wife Sarah & my daughters appear in some of the pics too... more recently I've brought my friends with me to visit the stores and brought them into my pics as well. I've met some amazing and passionate people along the way during my visits and don't have any plans to stop... it's my thing, it's what I do when I travel.

Ok, here’s some more info on the Diamond Bezel.

There were 2 different batches/runs on this Bezel. The Diamonds are the same size on both...
-In the first batch the finish of the area around the diamond is silverish giving the illusion of the larger diamond.
-In the second batch the finish of the area around the diamond is black giving the illusion of a smaller diamond.

(Mine is from the first batch.)

OakWelcome!

HED4JCI’d say that other one you posted a pic of is the exception; it’s the first time I’ve seen one that looks that way...

These diamond bezels come with a white outer sleeve as well where the sku and barcode is adhered right? - HED4JC

Correct, just like all the other Bezels.

I’ve seen several other pics of other Diamond Bezels and the all look like Pastor’s and mine.

From my understanding, these Diamond Bezels are even more limited than the Heritage Bezel. They only produced a very limited quantity, and that was it.

Where is this other pic from?

With the technology involved in the Radar Pace, it seemed a good idea to create a dumping ground of sorts to share information and experience... hope this helps.

Radar Pace Firmware Update Release History:
-September 2016 - vx.x.xxx (pre-release)
-October 2016 - v1.2.337 (update available after release)
-November 2016 - v1.2.387
-December 2017 - v1.3.489
-May 2017 - v1.4.568

Radar Pace iPhone App Update Release History:
-September 2016 - v1.1.0
-September 2016 - v1.1.1 (Update includes Firmware Update v1.2.337)
-November 2016 - v1.2.0 (Update includes Firmware Update v1.2.387)
-February 2017 - v1.3.0 (Update includes Firmware Update v1.3.489)
-March 2017 - v1.3.2 (No Firmware Update for Radar Pace)
-May 2017 - v1.4.0 (Update includes Firmware Update v1.4.568)
-June 2017 - v1.4.1 (No Firmware Update for Radar Pace)

There are several factors at play with regards to connectivity:
-Radar Pace Bluetooth pairs with your phone
-Radar Pace connects to external ANT+ sensors
-The ANT+ sensor connectivity is managed through the Radar Pace App
All indications I have, from the behavior of Radar Pace, is that there is a 3-way trust in communications between the Radar Pace, the Radar Pace App, and the ANT+ sensors; without both the Pace or Pace App on/open, data from the sensors will not register.

ANT+ Sensors: (I am currently using Garmin sensors & Stages Cycling sensors)
-Heart Rate Monitors - for running and cycling
-Foot Pods - for running (provide data when running on treadmills; and improved accuracy in stride/power)
-Speed Sensor - for cycling
-Cadence Sensor - for cycling
-Power Meter - for cycling

Current Issue with iPhone iOS 10 & 10.1:
At this time, there are known issues with the Radar Pace and the Bluetooth Stack of the iPhone with the release of iOS 10; which was released within a week of the release of the Radar Pace.

All information I have received indicates that the issues will be resolved in iOS 10.2

Known Issues:

Battery Life
-Battery Life would go from 49% to 0% for no reason.
-After a full charge, battery life would report 0%; they wouldn't turn on, but connecting to charging cable and powering on, you would see the charge begin at 1%.
-Radar Pace would not visually indicate a full charge by the lights glowing green
-After Firmware Update v1.2.387 I Have yet to experience further battery issues.

Radar Pace App
-iPhone App would close during my bike rides; I would pull out my iPhone after the ride to find the App was no longer running.
-After the App Update to v1.1.2 I have yet to experience this issue.

Bluetooth Connectivity (Note: I am using an iPhone 6, and have tested 2 Radar Pace w/ 2 different iPhone 6's running iOS 10.1; both have had issues described below)
-There is a known issue that Bluetooth connectivity, between the Radar Pace and the phone, is disconnected and then reconnected; Radar Pace will try to reestablish the connection while you are running or cycling, and you are notified (audibly) of this.
-Interestingly enough, you can still play music via the Bluetooth connection while this is happening; when Pace looses connectivity, they music will stop, but you can tap the touch sensor on the left temple to start the music up again while Radar Pace Coach reestablishes the connection.
-On occasion, which seems to happen to me during 80% of my workouts (cycling or running), Radar Pace Coach will not reconnect and music will still be playable; the result is a message on the Radar Pace App that says, "Bluetooth Connection Permanently Failed." When this happens, you will need to reboot your phone and then Radar Pace will connect again.
-This is supposed to be resolves in iOS 10.2

Radar Pace App Synchronization
-I have experienced several instances where the completed workout will not synchronize to the cloud.
-Almost every time this happens, it is due to the "Bluetooth Connection Permanently Failed" message.

ANT+ Sensors
-Garmin: I use/have used the Heart Rate, Speed, Speed/Cadence (combo sensor), & Foot Pod without issue.
-Stages Cycling: I use the Power/Cadence (combo sensor) and have constant connectivity issues with it; Radar Pace is constantly loosing data connectivity, and then reconnecting data connectivity... and every time this happens, you are audibly notified of it. (example: "I'm no longer receiving Power Data, I'm no longer receiving Cadence Data." and then "Cadence Data connected, Power Data connected.") I do not believe this is a Stages Cycling sensor issue seeing as I don't see the data for this sensor dropping out on my Garmin Edge 510.
-Also worth mentioning... the Radar Pace will not connect to a cycling computer; but it will share connectivity to the sensors so that Radar Pace will receive the same data that my Garmin Edge 510 does. (This is a good thing)

The Gauge 8 L reminds me of the Plaintiff Squared, the fit and the hinges... minus the Sq O. I'll likely be adding a couple of them as my O Store starts receiving more colorways; they only had the Matte Black when I stopped in last.

The Latch Ruby Fade did catch my eye though; not sure if I'll get any others aside from the PRIZM Golf Ruby Fade that found me...

You'll be pleased with the Tincup Carbon. I've had mine for over 2 years now and they are my daily wear RX... I work from home and often spend 10-12hrs a day in them, and many days leave them on until I go on my bike ride in the evenings when I put in my contacts.

They get some serious abuse. The Hollowpoint hinge is what attracted me to them, and the comfort of the carbon stems sealed the deal. These are also the first Oakley RX frames I had Transitions lenses put in.

The Gauge 8 L are nice, they have a good base curve on them unlike the Elmont. Felt very strong too... reminded me of the Plaintiff Squared, which I have a 7 of; one of my go-to aviators. They have similar stems that allow for some give.

The older aviators are still my favorite (Warden, Inmate), but they don't flex/give. Crosshairs are nice too, but as mentioned, very snug.

The "Tail" Series are all nice, Tailhooks fit great, but the Tailback is my favorite in that series; they aren't what I would consider sturdy though. They're not going to fall apart, but the stems and frame are very thin as to be lightweight. They are very comfortable...

I would recommend trying on the Gauge 8 L.

Not sure what's causing this frequent issue ...it's not a deal breaker with the functionality of Oakley Radar Pace, it's just an annoyance that happens more often than not when I share my training ride to Facebook. The Radar Pace App either shares the #OakleyRadarPaceTraining with the Ride map, or without the ride map.

Learned something new today night about Oakley Radar Pace ...you can charge them while using them.
. . .
I forgot to charge them after my ride on Saturday. When I turned them on, they were at 20%... this would last ~30min at best. Wired my Mophie JuicePack under my jersey, connected them to USB port on the side that I don't use the earpiece, and started charging... by the end of my ride Radar Pace was charged 100% and the Mophie still had plenty of juice left.
. . .
This solves the problem I was about to run into on my long rides of +70mi/+4hrs, which Radar Pace has lined up in my future Training Program rides.

Another minor issue I continue to have with Radar Pace is the Power Meter Calibration... this is only an issue when connected to my Stages Cycling Power Meter via the BLE (Bluetooth LE) connection; it calibrates properly via the ANT+ connection, but as I've tested that ANT+ connection causes data drop outs to Radar Pace so it's not an option.
. . .
On the right is my Garmin Edge 510, and the Power Meter Calibration after I perform the calibration. Radar Pace should calibrate to the same exact number +1/-1. I continue to receive an Offset Value of "0" when I perform the calibration before my ride.
. . .
I'm unsure if this is impacting the Power Data that Radar Pace logs to my rides, which the Coach uses to understand my effort/rides. From my understanding of the calibration, it is important to perform for accurate Power Data.

Had this issue with Oakley Radar Pace and the lose of connectivity with external sensors come up again...
. . .
Last night the Power & Cadence sensors (which are both in my Stages Cycling Power Meter, connected to Radar Pace via BLE), did not reconnect. And while you are in the middle of a ride, you cannot manually force Radar Pace to reconnect to the sensors; you would have to stop the workout, and then reconnect the sensors before starting a new ride. I was in a Training Ride, and my goal set by Radar Pace was 49.5mi; if I would have stopped the ride, I would not have completed the required training Radar Pace scheduled. The last time this happened was during a long ride, after 40mi. On the left image, you can see where the Blue (Cadence) & Yellow (Power) data lines go flat after I start riding again; the Green (Speed) data line shows when I'm moving again. On the right image, you can see at the bottom where it shows the Cadence & Power sensor icons are not active, meaning they are not connected. You can tap on them in the App, but it just shows you the connectivity status.
. . .
During a ride when you stop at a traffic light/stop sign or are waiting for traffic to clear, Radar Pace will auto-pause the workout; normally these pauses are short, and Radar Pace does not loose connectivity with the sensors. However, when the workout is paused for longer period of time, Radar Pace will lose connection with sensors (usually the Speed, Cadence, Power sensors) since they are no longer transmitting data. Radar Pace continues to log data from the Heart Rate sensor as its continually transmitting data (even when Radar Pace has the workout paused). Upon resuming movement, Radar Pace will auto-unpause the workout and once the sensors start transmitting data again, Radar Pace will reconnect with the sensors and start logging data again.
. . .
I believe this is a minor issue that could possibly be fixed with an App enhancement that allows for manual reconnection to the external sensors.

I had a good friend looking out for me on this 81. It still amazes me that it was located with how fast they sold out. I really need a better place to display this... I'm always forgetting I have it. I keep the Latches and Micro for them on display in a Tower. I'm thinking Inmay need to create an entire In Residence display once the Frogs arrive.
