Recon Jet Update: Closer To Reality

recon

Those of you who ordered your Recon Jet a while back still have some waiting to do. But the team behind the product have posted an update about how the Jet is tracking:

  • I’ve personally tested the camera while riding and was impressed. The image quality was solid but what really impressed me was how liberating it is to have instant access to image capture. Because the camera is integrated into the eyewear itself, Jet shoots exactly what the athlete is seeing. I had not fully appreciated how powerful this could be before testing it myself in the real world and am confident that this feature will be one of your favorites.

  • As part of the performance optimization outlined in the May 1 update, we tweaked Jet’s form factor, most notably angling the engine and battery relative to the ear stems and sunglass lens. This achieves better display positioning, improves ergonomics and, from a styling perspective, enhances the silhouette.

  • Display adjustment mechanics have been refined with the input of our manufacturer to maximize the adjustment range.

The team still has a lot of testing to do. But the next update will be on July 17. You can still order one of these for $599.
