St. George, USA – May 8, 2017 – Recon Instruments, an Intel company, is proud to announce that their Recon Jet smart eyewear for cyclists and runners has been used in professional Ironman triathlon competition this weekend, for the first time. Four-time ITU World Champion Tim Don relied on the Jet smart eyewear to instantly deliver his performance data such as time, distance, pace, heart rate and more while competing in the Ironman 70.3 North American Pro Championships in St. George, Utah on Saturday.
Bremen, Germany – April 6, 2017 – In its distribution center in Arizona, Intel successfully deployed the Pick-by-Vision solution xPick, developed by Ubimax. With minimal ramp-up time, Intel was able to reduce its required pick time per box by 29 percent. By using xPick running on Intel® Recon Jet™ Pro Smart Glasses, picking processes were sped up significantly. Picking error rate, employee training time, and process ergonomics for pickers also improved.
Vancouver, Canada – August 15, 2016 – Recon Instruments, an Intel company, is announcing the launch of the Recon Partner Program, an initiative that empowers developers, independent software vendors, and system integrators with an array of resources to facilitate the deployment and monetization of software for Recon’s current and future enterprise smart-eyewear solutions.
When Joe Skipper partnered with us and started training with Jet this spring, we had a feeling he’d go far. Last month at Challenge Roth 2016, Joe proved us right. His 7:56:23 total time was the fastest ever set by a British triathlete, and his 02:38:52 run was impressive in its own regard.
Recon Jet’s second season is underway. We want to make sure everyone running and riding with Jet this summer has a really awesome experience. That’s why we’ve rolled out new versions of ReconOS and Uplink. Both add polish, bug fixes, and new features.
Recon Jet was built for endurance sports, but its power, ergonomics, and rugged design open the door to a wealth of other applications. Following our entry into the enterprise space, we’ve now partnered with Mutualink to bring Recon Jet to yet another category of users: first responders.
Vancouver, Canada – March 4, 2016 – Recon Instruments, an Intel company, has entered multi-year partnerships with two professional triathletes: four-time world champion Tim Don and new talent Joe Skipper. The two triathletes recognized the unique benefits Recon Jet smart eyewear provides as a training tool for cycling and running, and today, they both utilize Jet as an integral part of their structured-training programs.
Today, Recon Jet gained a feature I’ve always wanted: IFTTT support. (Update: with ReconOS 4.5, this feature is now also on Snow2.)
IFTTT stands for “if this then that,” and it’s a powerful way to get more out of your favorite devices and web services. On Jet, it means you can get notifications about almost anything you can think of. All you do is pick a service and decide what it should notify you about, and IFTTT does the rest.
