Introducing the RealWear HMT-1™
A new kind of industrial wearable.

The RealWear Head-Mounted Tablet (HMT) is designed for skilled technicians and engineers in field service, equipment inspection, maintenance and complex manufacturing assembly.

It’s the birth of a new category for mobile work


Like enterprise tablets, the RealWear HMT-1 runs a landscape display with enough pixel resolution to display PDF documents, maintenance and assembly manuals. Porting smartphone, Android tablet apps, and enterprise business apps in HTML-5 is an easy process with its Android operating system.


Like wearable smart glasses, the RealWear HMT-1 is a heads-up display experience with glanceable information delivered immediately to the worker on demand.

Transcending tablets and smart glasses, the HMT-1 has a completely hands-free voice-visual user interface allowing workers to operate the tools and equipment needed for the job, even if climbing a scaffold or tower, without ever having to pick up or touch a mobile device.

A fully rugged hands-free head mounted tablet

The HMT-1 micro-display is adjustable and emulates a mini-tablet screen. Featuring advanced noise cancellation and voice recognition, workers can navigate applications and enter text and numbers just by speaking in a normal voice.

Our voice recognition delivers 95% accuracy in up to 100 dB of ambient industrial noise. You hear spoken acknowledgement and tones immediately indicating successful recognition. Documents and larger screens can be panned by moving your head.


854×480 pixels appears as the size of 7 inch tablet held at arms length and
viewable in bright sunlight.


Local speech recognition in loud industrial areas – no buttons, swiping, or gestures


Multiple digital microphones and advanced active noise cancellation

Breakthrough human factors design

The display does not interfere with the worker’s front facing direct line of sight to the scene, and can be flipped up to achieve zero occlusion whenever it’s not needed. The boom arm’s adjustability accommodates any head size and eye relief need. The entire unit can be rotated to work with left eye dominant users. It’s comfortable enough to wear for an entire eight hour shift.

The unit can be worn directly on the head or clipped to an approved hard hat and works with eyeglasses, safety glasses and safety goggles.


Adjusts six ways to accommodates any head size or eye relief – flips display out of way when not in use


Integrated 91dB speaker and 3.5mm audio jack for use with hearing protection


Clips on to hard hats. Works with safety glasses and goggles. Weighs 370g

For the connected industrial worker

RealWear’s HMT-1 delivers data from the Industrial IoT to the eyes and ears of the mobile worker, enhancing productivity. Highly experienced remote mentors can now have a direct line to newer or less experienced field employees to coach them on complex inspection and maintenance tasks. Video calls utilize the high performance, 4-axis optically image stabilized auto-focus camera and clear two-way audio. Step-by-step voice and visual work instructions in the line of sight reduce rework and speed assembly.


16MP, autofocus and image stabilized for hi-resolution photo capture and real-time video chat.



Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE. Tether to LTE smart phones, portable hotspots, or plug-in USB dongles


GPS, gyroscopes and digital compass for positioning – detects Bluetooth beacons

Beyond fully rugged for heavy industry

The RealWear HMT-1 is designed for heavy industry. Exceeding fully rugged norms, it goes beyond MIL-SPEC 810G specifications and can be dropped onto concrete from a height of 2 meters, and is waterproof against even powerful jets of water. The HMT-1 is built to resist years of exposure to skin oils, sweat and bright sunlight. Its various adjustments remain precise with daily use.

For potentially explosive atmospheres, we will also offer an intrinsically safe model certified for use in the more stringent ATEX Zone 1 and FMC1/D1 categories and their national equivalents in other countries.

The unit can be worn directly on the head or clipped to an approved hard hat and works with eyeglasses, safety glasses and safety goggles.

HMT-1-Z1 model is for potentially explosive environments
in oil & gas, etc. FMC1/D1 – ATEX Zone 1

Performs like your hardest working employee

The RealWear HMT-1 works as hard as your hardest working employees, with unprecedented battery life in a head mounted wearable device. The standard on-board 3250mAh Lithium Ion battery runs for a full shift in real world conditions.

Imagine a field maintenance worker being trained by a remote mentor. His day includes hours of live video streaming to a remote mentor over Wi-Fi, along with many other inspection reporting and photo capture tasks. Since he is mobile in the field, all this must be done on a single battery charge. The RealWear HMT-1 can meet this torture test and more. Further, the battery is hot swappable, for uninterrupted work through a battery change.


Rechargeable, swappable
full shift battery


Self-contained Android 6.0 Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 platform with 2GB
RAM/ 16GB Flash


Works in temperatures ranging from -20°C to 50°C

Worker-centric approach

It all adds up to a worker-centric approach; one that gives the employee the confidence to approach their job with immediate access to relevant information and remote expertise with the extra safety margin and efficiency boost that helps them achieve their highest performance level.
