What is Recon Jet?

Last Updated: Oct 20, 2016 10:28AM PDT
Recon Jet is true sports eyewear built from the ground up for cyclists, runners, and triathletes. Jet delivers live activity metrics, interactive GPS maps, and other key information on a high-contrast display positioned just below the athlete’s right eye. By making it possible for athletes to access the data they need without changing their posture or taking their eyes off the road, Jet enables smarter and more effective training.

Intelligent display

Jet's display is equivalent to a 30" screen viewed from 7 feet (2 m) away. It's crisp and vibrant in all lighting conditions—and thanks to our patented Glance Detection technology, it wakes up instantly when you glance down, then turns off again when you look away, minimizing distractions and maximizing power efficiency.

Point-of-view camera

Jet's built-in camera captures photos and video instantly. And because Jet's display doubles as a viewfinder, you'll always frame your shot perfectly.

Computing, sensors, and connectivity

Jet's smartphone-class processor backs an onboard GPS and a comprehensive sensor suite: accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, barometer, and magnetometer. Need more? Jet features ANT+, Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth 4.0), and Wi-Fi connectivity. And it even pairs with your smartphone to get caller ID, SMS notifications, and access to social media.

Social-media integration

Jet is socially connected, and your friends can track your activity in real time, wherever you are.

Jet Maps

Jet's Maps app doesn't just let you find your way. It also shows nearby friends in real time, so you'll never miss a chance to team up.

Swappable lithium-ion battery

Jet's battery snaps on opposite the engine for optimal weight balance. It's also swappable, so Jet can always go as far as you can.

Optical touchpad and two-button rocker

No matter the weather, interacting with Jet is a breeze. Just swipe and click. Wearing gloves? No problem.

Performance eyewear and lenses

More than just groundbreaking technology, Jet is also true performance eyewear. Its highly adjustable ear stems and nosepiece help it conform to any user, and four interchangeable lens options have been impact-tested and provide full UVA and UVB protection. Jet's polarized lens options also cut out glare for maximum visual clarity.

Open to developers

Jet's operating system isn't walled in. Thanks to our open SDK, any developer can build apps for it.
