B.C.-based Recon Instruments is making giant strides in the tech world with its innovative wearable technology. Recon designs heads-up displays for winter sports and smart eyewear for cycling and running. Its technology allows athletes to monitor key activity metrics without losing focus.
Recon has come a long way since its days as a startup. Intel recognized this product’s potential and acquired Recon this year. As part of Intel, Recon now has access to considerable resources, including Intel’s extensive technology portfolio.
Recon has venture-capital investors like the BC Renaissance Capital Fund to thank for its success. The company is a great example of how B.C.’s venture-capital investors can bring innovative ideas to life.
