A Preview of Recon Jet Smart Glass

A new entry in the world of fitness tech launches today named Recon Jet and I have to say, we are definitely a little curious to check it out. In a world littered with bands and watches, the Recon Jet is moving all of that up into your glasses and providing all that data at a glance. Its basically a rugged activity based Google Glass for runners and cyclists.

The marketing team describes Recon Jet as an advanced wearable microcomputer for running and cycling and high intensity environments. It features a powerful processor and on-board camera that connect seamlessly with smartphones and sensors, delivering activity-specific information instantly, just below your right eye.

The device partners with your smartphone and includes a camera for photo and video, a map with GPS, music player, activity tracker, and can also pair with devices like heart-rate monitors. It comes in black and white and has three different lenses that can be swapped depending on lighting conditions.

We are trying to get our hands on one to test it out, but if you are interested now then its available today for $699.
