CK Talent and Recon Instruments, an Intel company, have announced today that Recon has selected CK Talent’s Ultra-runner Jared Fetterolf to test their Jet eyewear. Jared will be the first Ultra-runner to train with and test the eyewear during his trainings and competitions, which take place around the world. This is the first relationship between an Ultrarunner and a wearable tech company.
Jared and his team at CK recognized the unique benefits Recon Jet smart eyewear provides as a training tool for running and enhancing a runners performance. The Jet will become an integral part of Jared's structured-training and competition program.
Jared will use the Jet during his next training camp, which will take place in early July in Las Vegas Nevada. Jared’s first official competition using the Jet will take place during the Badwater competition in Death Valley in late July.
“Working with companies like Intel’s Recon Instruments enhances are athletes performance and organically mirrors the foundation of our agency which is to continue to seek out and invest in our talent so that they are at the top of their game. The partnership with Jared and Intel’s Recon Eyewear demonstrates that tech can coincide in a competitive and training environment.” – Craig Rogalski, Managing Partner, CK Talent Management, Inc.
About the Recon Jet:
Recon Jet was been featured at the Ted Talks - TedX Vancouver in 2015 where the benefits of wearable tech was discussed. Recon Jet is true sports eyewear built from the ground up for cyclists, runners, and triathletes. Jet delivers live activity metrics, interactive GPS maps, and other key information on a high-contrast display positioned just below the athlete’s right eye. By making it possible for athletes to access the data they need without changing their posture or taking their eyes off the road, Jet enables smarter and more effective training. 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.
