Following the official launch of the Rx insert for Recon Jet this week we can now offer prescription inserts and lenses for these exciting smart sports glasses. Jet is not designed to fit over other eyewear, which presents a challenge for the users who normally wear prescription glasses. This new prescription insert allows those users to take full advantage of Recon Jet smart eyewear for the first time.
The introduction of another optical solution for smart eyewear further enhances our reputation as a leading supplier of optical solutions for wearable technology in Europe. With a growing portfolio of patented prescription Smart GOLD lens designs, frames and accessories for the most advanced smart glasses on the market, including Recon Jet, Epson Moverio BT-200, Vuzix M100, Sony SmartEyeglass and Google Glass, we are offering innovation developed by our US supply partners Rochester Optical to meet the needs of the optical industry and deliver solutions to the smart glasses space.
Bob Forgan, Waterside's Managing Director comments: "Recon Jet offers great training and performance benefits for sports enthusiasts and this addition for those needing vision correction ensures everyone has equal access to its features. The insert Rochester Optical designed allows users who normally wear prescription glasses to fully utilize Recon Jet".
"The prescription insert features a minimalistic design and a user-friendly mounting mechanism to best complement Recon Jet's modular design. Users can already swap in optional accessory lenses and spare batteries on the go, and this insert follows in the same vein: simply clip the insert into the device to experience premium visual acuity and comfort".
Combining true sports eyewear with a high-contrast display positioned just below the wearer's right eye, Recon Jet enables cyclists and runners to train smarter by accessing a full suite of fitness metrics without altering their posture or taking their eyes off the road. Jet also features a built-in GPS, a point-of-view camera, Android-based software, and a fully modular design with a swappable battery and interchangeable lenses.
The prescription lenses we offer for Recon Jet were developed by New York based Rochester Optical and are highly specialized. Smart GOLD Lenses minimize eyestrain and eye fatigue, allowing smart glasses to be comfortably worn for extended periods of time. By creating an additional, optimized optical centre where the display is viewed and compensating to balance binocular vision, Smart GOLD eliminates prismatic effect and off axis aberrations, providing continuous, comfortable visual acuity.
Waterside Labs are Rochester Optical's Authorised European Reseller and UK opticians will have the opportunity to check out Recon Jet and other smart glasses at 100% Optical in February
