Recon Instruments’ Recon Jet is an Android-powered HUD glasses with applications designed for cyclists and triathletes and other athletes. The gadget provides the user with critical and useful information.
Through wireless connectivity to third party devices, the athlete will have access to information including heart rate, cadence and power output. Its comprehensive suite of on-board sensors also delivers a full portfolio of precision performance stats and data such as speed, pace, distance, time, vertical ascent and more.
Recon Jet keeps the user connected to friends and family effortlessly by displaying caller ID and text messages hands-free and available at a glance. Athletes can even upload and view information from their social networks direct from Recon Jet during activity.
Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments said, “Since introducing our first HUD for snow-sports in 2010, we have been working tirelessly to create a high-performance sports sunglass HUD. Recon Jet is the culmination of that effort.
“We introduced Recon Jet to the developer community at the Google I/O tech conference. To say the response exceeded our expectations would be a massive understatement. Now, with this first edition of Recon Jet and our soon-to-be-released SDK, we look forward to developers unleashing their creativity to build amazing apps for Recon Jet.”
The components of the HUD are distributed evenly across the eyewear adding just 14grams to each side of the glasses. The display is controlled by a precision optical touch-pad that supports multiple gesture controls and facilitates its use in all weather conditions, even with gloves on. Recon Jet is very possibly redefining sports tech as we know it…
