UK tech-heads will be able to get their hands on the innovative Recon Jet smart sunglasses soon. The Jet glasses are Google Glass-type shades for non-contact sport athletes, and promise a new world of real-time data via a heads-up display.
Currently, Recon Instruments are taking orders for the glasses, which priced at US$599 with shipping expected in March 2014. Madison is unable to confirm a UK price or when after the first order date they will be receiving and distributing stock.
The innovative, feature-rich glasses can provide reams of real-time data, including speed, time, distance, elevation and turn-by-turn direction instructions. But that’s just the start. Once paired with a compatible bike computer, smartphone or other ANT+, Bluetooth or wifi-enabled devices, they can offer a wealth of data feeds on the head up display – even a live view from a rear-facing camera.
