Product News – Recon Jet Smart Eyewear

Recon Instruments have announced Recon Jet, a wearable computer for sports and outdoor recreational activities. Jet will begin shipping this week.

Recon Jet - Black - Right Angle

Featuring a dual-core CPU, high-contrast display and point-of-view camera, Jet connects seamlessly to leading smartphones and wearable sensors, delivering contextually relevant information instantly, just below the user’s right eye. The product is purpose-built for active outdoor use. Elegant and robust, Jet is lightweight, provides outstanding comfort, and is resistant to both water and dust.

Says Dan Eisenhardt, CEO of Recon Instruments “The product is about more than real-time data delivery. We’ve addressed the entire in-activity experience, coordinating performance metrics, smartphone connectivity, video and photo capture, social interactions, and instant content sharing in its design”.

Recon Jet’s comprehensive suite of on-board sensors, including GPS, delivers a full portfolio of performance metrics like speed, pace, distance, duration, vertical elevation gain, and more, while extra data points can be added by connecting wireless third-party devices (via ANT+™).

2. Video Mode

This allows users to access heart-rate and cadence metrics in real time. Power (metering) will be added shortly following launch.

During an activity, Jet allows the user to stay connected effortlessly to friends and family, displaying caller ID and text messages from a paired smartphone. Jet’s built-in point-of-view camera is instantly accessible to shoot short-form HD video and still images.

While Recon has developed its own Recon Engage web platform and mobile apps for iOS and Android, a user’s stats can also be uploaded easily to leading third-party data tracking services including Strava™, Training Peaks™, MapMyFitness™, and others.

The customisable dashboard lets users tailor their experience by displaying the information that matters to them most.

Recon Jet includes a dual-core CPU, a point-of-view camera, GPS, Bluetooth Smart, ANT+â„¢, Wi-Fi, and a 9-axis sensor suite, making it a stand-alone computing solution equivalent in power to a typical smartphone. The electronics are distributed across the eyewear, ensuring the device is well-balanced and comfortable to wear even during long workouts. Jet is controlled by a touchpad and intuitive rocker button designed for use in all weather conditions, even with gloves on.

Jet is available in select specialty running, cycling, triathlon, and outdoor stores, online at (USA only), and at
