Jet. Recon.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

Recon Jet delivers information instantly, effortlessly and unobtrusively via a microcomputer and high-resolution widescreen display. All this is mounted on a precision-engineered, fashionable pair of sunglasses on par with the best in the world.

The Jet rocks a dual-core processor, enabling better functionality, but more importantly has an amazing array of sensors and connectivity options including GPS, accelerometer, thermometer, WiFi, Bluetooth and even ANT+. This means it’ll be able to suck in data from a variety of sensors capturing things like heart rate and even cycling cadence and power.

The potential applications are limited, and cycling Strava addicts in particular will probably be salivating at the potential. Indeed, the idea of getting a real-time display of speed, power and heart rate while training is quite compelling. The device tried out right now is very early and frankly a little flimsy feeling, and the display is a little hard to see and not as easily adjustable as with Glass, but this is a pre-production prototype.

Jet weighs only 60 grams, athlete tested display placement, polarized lens, one touch function in all weather conditions, with an interchangeable battery for continuous use.
