The first functional heads-up display for running and cycling.

Instead of having to turn away from the road to look at your bar-mounted computer or a watch, the Recon Jet displays the same information in your peripherals. Think of it as a triathlon training watch built into a pair of glasses—a quick glance and your workout metrics are in plain view. Although Jet isn’t exactly low profile, it doesn’t obstruct vision dramatically when riding or running. Intuitive controls make it easy to operate on the fly. Key training data is tracked and recorded by the device itself (no phone needed), but it also connects to a phone to display texts, control music and more.
