Recon Integrates Contour+ Camera Viewfinder into Goggles

Back in October we mentioned the awesome Recon-Zeal goggles that were available that have a small heads-up LCD that displays pertinent stats when you view it. The goggles show you things like your speed down a slope, altitude, GPS coordinates, and a lot more.

Recon has just announced a new feature of their MOD Live module (their heads-up display add-on for various goggles) that is very cool. The company teamed up with Contour, the company that makes some rugged sports cameras. With the new feature, MOD Live-equipped goggles can now be used as the viewfinder for Contour action cameras.

The goggles will link to the camera using Bluetooth, showing you what you have recorded, and allow you to be sure your camera is aimed correctly. The system supports the ContourGPS and Contour+ cameras, which both have Bluetooth. The cameras offer HD recording and can survive the inevitable falls spills and wet weather.

Of course, all this cool tech does come with a price tag attached – The Recon Instruments MOD Live display sells for about $400(USD), while compatible Contour cameras sell for $300 to $500 each.
