Recon Jet Fitness Tracking Eyewear Now Up for Pre-order

April 21, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Of the wearable gadgets that are flooding the market now, the ones dedicated for the eyes do stand distinct.

But then you may not want to wear a hefty display all the time in front of your eyes.

The realization is still to be explored further into by many. However, some among them seem to be thinking more on the comfort aspect.


Recon is one among them. You might remember, back in 2013, they had announced the Jet Pilot Edition smart glass  intended to be on your eyes only during specific times. It was something intriguing, but the device took its own time to come.

It’s finally here and Recon has started the pre-orders for this eyewear.

Significant is the fact that Recon Jet features a sporty design. At the same time, it’s also not the glass which you would like to wear all the time. Recon Jet is aiming to be on your eyes when you are sweating it out with fitness or sports activities. That’s one of its main tasks too.

Recon Jets are primarily intended to track down your physical activities like when jogging, cycling, or swimming. But it’s not purely dedicated to the fitness department.

With Recon Jet on your eyes, you could have access to the most used stuff on your smartphone, such as music control, call handling, notification access and much more. It even has got a camera that can capture images as well as record videos.

All these get projected on to the black shaded glass with the help of a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor that runs at speeds of 1GHz. Packed along is a RAM of 1GB, and a storage space of 8GB.

Connectivity can be established via Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n and micro USB.

GPS, accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers and various other sensors are also packed inside. The battery included is said to offer a life of up to four hours for this device.

Recon Jet is available in two shades – one with the white frame and another with a black frame. Pre-orders for Recon Jet commenced on Thursday, with the device set at a price of $699.
