Recon Instruments has had various data transmitted directly to the lens of its ski goggles for a while now, but beginning soon Oakley is looking to get in the game with its Airwave goggles. These will feature a heads-up display that was developed by Recon Instruments – so we know what to expect – and users can expect integrated GPS< Bluetooth and a variety of onboard sensors.
Snowboarders and skiers will be able to view jump analytics, pinpoint their location on a map, and even see information such as distance traveled, altitude, speed and vertical descent. The Airwaves can be paired with a smartphone to take incoming calls and see text messages, and stream music from Bluetooth-enabled devices.
With all these possibilities we hope those using the goggles don’t forget to enjoy the view as well!
