Recon Jet delivers information instantly, effortlessly and unobtrusively via a microcomputer and high-resolution widescreen display. All this is mounted on a precision-engineered, fashionable pair of sunglasses on par with the best in the world.

Recon has pioneered the miniaturization of affordable wearable technology since launching their first product, for snowsports, three years ago. With Recon Jet, the company is launching a faster, smaller, and more powerful new platform. Recon Jet includes: a dual core processor, dedicated graphics, Wi-Fi, ANT+, Bluetooth, GPS, HD camera, and a comprehensive suite of sensors. This makes Recon Jet a connected, standalone computing solution comparable in capability to a tablet or smartphone.

Recon Jet runs an open platform with an SDK, which empowers developers to create native apps for any activity to run on the device. The company is already working with some of the top fitness companies and communities to develop on the platform.

Where to find it:

Recon Jet can be experienced for the first time at Google I/O on 15th May, 2013.
