Recon Jet Update – November 8, 2013

Blog: Product Updates – Dan Eisenhardt


Thank you for your support of Recon Jet. Your participation has been instrumental to making Jet one of the most hotly anticipated wearable products.

We have just concluded a rigorous evaluation of the latest Jet hardware build, which we had expected would be the final pre-production prototype. The product is shaping up well, and I am more excited than ever about the experience it will deliver.

However, certain aspects of the latest prototype fell short of my expectations, so some re-design will be required. The good news is that we have mapped a clear path to resolving each of the open issues. The bad news is the time necessary to execute the re-design will delay first shipments by a few months.

I know this delay is a disappointment for you. It certainly is for the Recon team and, of course, for me personally. The entire team and I are committed to delivering nothing short of a world-class product. By shifting the first-ship date forward, we can execute the necessary re-design, polish Jet’s functionality and deliver the product at the standard we all expect. Your investment demands nothing less.

Please feel free to contact me directly at with any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you for your understanding and for your continued support and enthusiasm for Recon Jet and our company.

Best regards,
