All those fitness trackers with their fancy sensors and metrics? Their data storage, coaching, push notifications, and incoming text messages? Yeah, Recon's Jet has those. But they're not on your wrist. They're in your face.

A sort of Google Glass/HUD for athletes, Jet is a pair of Smart Glasses that records data about your activity and delivers it instantly to the space just below your right eye. Think the device looks clunky and that its display method would be completely distracting during a ride or race? Me too. But Recon claims Jet kills it in action, unobtrusively beaming info without forcing you to look down, sending cell alerts without requiring you to reach in your pocket, and even allowing you to snap a photo without mounting a GoPro to your head. Also, total weight: about 3 ounces.

Jet eyewear has a smartphone-class processor that powers its onboard GPS host of sensors, including an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, barometer, and magnetometer. It also has a built-in instant-access point-of-view camera. How's that for a comprehensive wearable suite of services? Not to mention total hyphenation domination! If you say, "Still not enough, Dude!" then Recon counters with its glasses' connectivity options: pair them to external devices and feed your HUD even more data using ANT+, Bluetooth Smart, and Wi-Fi. When linked to your smartphone, Jet can display caller ID and SMS notifications, and access social media streams.

The Jet Smart Glasses projection displays as the equivalent of a 30" screen viewed from 7' away. Its output remains crisp and visible in all lighting conditions, and a pretty sweet feature I have no clue how Recon got to work, called Glance Detection technology, makes the glasses "wake up" when you look down, and then shut back off when you look away.

Jet runs on a rechargeable Li-on battery that clips onto the left side of the glasses (also balances their weight with the right side display). An optical control touchpad functions in all weather, as well as while wearing gloves. Lens options include 4 interchangeable pieces that have been impact-tested, and provide full UVA and UVB protections. Frames come in Black and White.
