Here's what other sites are saying:
Head into any ski-town bar after a fresh day, and you're all but guaranteed to hear different versions of the same few stories: "Dude, I went so big! Must've been like 60 feet! "No way man, I took that whole thing in like, two turns!" or "I spun, like, 75 laps and my legs are worked, bro. Beer and hot tub'" Bravado, stoke, and half-truths are the verbal currency of any legit ski bar, but the winners of the tall-tale roulette usually possess the best storytelling skills, not necessarily the best shredding chops. At least, they did. Enter the Smith I/O Recon Goggle. Using an integrated ReconSnow 2 system, it's able to show you, on a heads-up display INSIDE the goggles, all sorts of boast-enhancing (or deflating ... sad trombone) stats like your speed, jump airtime, vertical, and runs taken, (it does averages, too) to create the definitive barstool claim. The Recon does way more than bursting your bros' bubbles, though--it also provides information like location, temperature, and altitude, and syncs with your smartphone to let you control your tunes (a wrist remote is included), send text messages, and find points of interest within the resort. You can even track your buddies around the hill, putting an end to wasted runs spent waiting for Dave (it's always Dave). All this would just amount to a face-mounted smartphone if it weren't hooked up with Smith's signature optical quality. Fortunately, the Recon comes correct with a spherical Carbonic-X lens, which uses TLT optics to provide unparalleled visual clarity. All the lens options are also built using Vaporator technology, which actually seals an inner and outer lens together and incorporates a Porex filter, allowing air to circulate freely while keeping moisture on the outside. If that's not enough, every lens has a 5X anti-fog coating, and is easily interchangeable, so you're never caught up by flat light or suddenly glaring sunbecause the Recon doesn't have a way to record who took the gnarliest fall of the day.
The tech-packed Smith I/O Recon snow goggles show GPS-based data in-goggles, offer Bluetooth(R) smartphone interface capability and boast a fast and easy lens interchange system. Boom.
High-tech is an understatement for Smith's I/O Recon Goggle. A MOD Live GPS enabled device allows you to connect to your bluetooth smartphone to access tunes, text, and caller ID. Integrated trail maps from resorts around the world can be uploaded for GPS navigation and tracking your routes, allowing you to share alpine experiences with anyone. Overlay your runs and stats with Google Maps with resort info and post to HQ Online, Facebook, and Twitter for bragging rights. Spherical Carbonic-X lens with TLT Optics has a Carbonic-X outer lens which offers scratch & impact resistance and Fog-X Anti-Fog treatment that can never be wiped off.
