Performance Wearable Tech for Competitive Athletes
Recon Jet is the first heads up display sports sunglasses that enables runners and cyclists to get realtime performance data near to eye. A micro display below the user's eye provides useful information, such as speed, distance time and other relevant metrics.
We worked closely with Recon to create a great User Experience for a specific market that met a specific need instead of designing a more diluted product for a larger audience. This gave us the grounding to inspire the Industrial Design with a more distinct look and feel that was more clearly sport inspired.
We also iterated on many ergonomics prototypes in order to ensure that the physical fit and visibility of the display worked for 95% of the target demographic.
Jet was launched in 2014 as Recon's flagship product and the company was acquired by Intel in 2015.
