First Impressions of the Dyson 360 Vis Nav Robot Vacuum

On March 12, Dyson released the 360 Vis Nav, its first robot vacuum entry in the U.S. since 2016. The 360 Vis Nav already (temporarily) sold out at Dyson's website, Amazon, and Best Buy despite its steep price tag of $1,199.99.

The Buzz Around Dyson's 360 Vis Nav Robot Vacuum

So, you've probably heard the buzz around Dyson's latest gadget, the 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum. Priced at a casual $1,199.99, this new release has caused quite a stir in the market. The 360 Vis Nav marks Dyson's return to the U.S. robot vacuum scene after a long hiatus since the failed launch of the Dyson 360 Eye back in 2016. But this time, Dyson is back with a vengeance, aiming to redeem itself with a revamped and reinvented robot vacuum experience for consumers.

A Closer Look at the Design

The design of the 360 Vis Nav is a complete overhaul from its predecessor, the 360 Eye. Sporting a bold bright indigo exterior and an exposed industrial dust bin, it's hard to miss this maximalist monstrosity. This D-shaped robot vacuum features an innovative extending side duct that redirects suction power to clean those pesky corners and edges effectively. The vacuum's heavy-duty roller brush spans the entire length, ensuring a thorough cleaning experience.

The 360 Vis Nav charges with the dust bin facing outward, proudly displaying how dirty your floors were before its intervention. It's like a badge of honor for your newly cleaned home!

Advanced Cleaning Features

One standout feature of the 360 Vis Nav is its ability to detect areas with the highest amount of dust through heat map-like technology. When it identifies these trouble spots, the robot vacuum automatically increases its suction power to tackle the mess effectively. With Dyson's Hyperdymium motor spinning at an impressive 110,000 RPM, the 360 Vis Nav boasts double the suction power compared to its competitors.

While the 360 Vis Nav excels in suction power, it falls short in other advanced cleaning features. Surprisingly, Dyson chose not to include mopping capabilities, small obstacle detection, or self-emptying functions in this premium robot vacuum. Despite its steep price tag, these missing features raise some eyebrows among consumers.
