Recon Instruments, an Intel company, is pleased to announce a partnership with FE Sports, Australia's premier sporting goods distributor. FE Sports will distribute Recon Jet, the world's most advanced smart eyewear for sports and high-intensity environments, across Australia and New Zealand, starting today.
FE Sports will also showcase Recon Jet at the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival in Queensland, Australia between October 28 and November 1.
"Australia is a hugely important market for us," said Tom Fowler, Head of Sales and Marketing at Recon Instruments. "Australian cyclists and triathletes are extremely passionate and compete at the highest levels. That's why we can't wait for them discover how Recon Jet can transform their training and propel them to the next level. We couldn't hope for a better partner than FE Sports to make that happen. Danny and his team have been amazing."
"We're incredibly excited by this partnership with Recon Instruments," said Danny Brkic, Senior VP of FE Sports. "It's not everyday you see a product like Recon Jet that can so completely revolutionise the way riders and triathletes train. There's just nothing else out there that makes it so painless and effortless to track all your key metrics while you're training. We're delighted to be able to bring this technology to Australia and New Zealand, starting with our demo at the Noosa triathlon this week."
Recon Jet is true sports eyewear that delivers metrics, maps, and other data on a high-contrast display positioned just below the athlete's right eye. With Jet, cyclists and runners train smarter and more effectively by instantly accessing the data they need without altering their posture or taking their eyes off the road.
Jet features a dual-core processor, a point-of-view camera, and the ability to display data from wirelessly connected smartphones as well as ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart fitness sensors. Jet's Android-based operating system and open SDK also allow third-party developers to create amazing new apps. Already, apps available from Recon's App Center enable Jet to control GoPro® cameras, provide real-time nutrition and hydration instructions, and enhance activities ranging from sailing to aviation. Jet's modular design also makes it easy to swap in optional accessory lenses and spare batteries on the go, allowing for prolonged use at any hour, in any weather.
Recon Jet is priced at $799 AUD in Australia and New Zealand. Availability through FE Sports will begin on October 28.
