Intel Recon Jet Is A Headset That Tracks Exercise
Intel showcased Recon Jet, a headset that tracks exercise, at Mobile World Congress. The Recon Jet headset looks similar to Google Glass, and contains GPS, gyro sensors, and Bluetooth technology to track the users and show information during the workout.
The headset, powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor, displays the pace, distance and duration of the workout. These notifications are shown on an embedded display attached to the headset. The Android-based glasses are currently available for $500.
Also at the show, Recon Instruments, which is a division of Intel, announced it has joined forces with APX Labs to develop smart safety glasses for field service, maintenance, and manufacturing-based enterprise clients.
