Augmented reality glasses have escaped the apparent demise of Google Glass. One of the newer products in the category is called Recon Jet and it’s basically a head-mounted sports computer which is perfect for both runners and cyclists alike. So what type of information will it display? Well, the Recon Jet is capable of displaying data on your current speed, cadence, distance traveled, and even the calories that you’ve burned. There’s even a GPS module so you won’t get lost as you go through your run.
The company was recently acquired for $175 million by Intel so we’ll probably see further development on the Recon Jet line in the future. At the moment you can get your hands on your own smart glass pedometer from Recon’s website for $699, a price that won’t shock you if you’re a truly hardcore athlete.
