One of the competitors to Google Glass is finally being launched as the Recon Smart Glass preorders have finally started. We first heard of Recon Smart Glasses back in 2013 which came about shortly after Google announced their line of Google SmartGlasses, and were unfortunaly over-shadowed by the more popular branding of Google.
The new line of Recon Smart Glass is being marketed to a more specific line of consumers, and those looking for more ways of enhancing fitness through the use of mobile technology. Fitness tech has really increased in popularity with the current trend of fitness and health related topics, and Recon looks to introduce something truly unique with the new line of Smart Glass.
The more practical use of Recon’s glasses looks to further extend what and how fitness tracking can be done. While riding a bike, running, hiking, and more, you can easily track steps, sync stats, and utilize the integrated GPS feature. Operating on Recon’s own operating system, the Recon OS 4.1 is quite similar to the interface of Android 5.0.
