An electronic device includes a display and a band configured to be worn on the head of a user. The band defines a display end to which the display is affixed and extends from the display end to a free end. The band is adjustable such that it can be configured by a user to contact the head of the user at a first location near a temple, a second location along a portion of the user's ear adjacent the temple, and at a third location along a rear portion of the head of the user. The display end is positionable away from the head such that the display element is suspended over an eye adjacent the temple. The band is further configured to maintain the configuration. The device also includes image generating means within the band for generating an image presentable to the user on the display.
