Recon Jet is true sports eyewear that delivers metrics, maps, and other data on a high-contrast display positioned just below the athlete’s right eye. With Jet, cyclists and runners train smarter and more effectively by instantly accessing the data they need without altering their posture or taking their eyes off the road.

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 smartphone 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 connectivity
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. Highly adjustable ear stems and nosepieces help Jet conform to any user, and four interchangeable lens options have been impact-tested and provide full UVA and UVB protection. Jet’s polarized lenses also cut out glare for maximum visual clarity.
