Goggles and sunglasses
designer Zeal Optics has partnered with Recon Instruments to produce the Transcend Goggle snow goggles. These are the first goggles to feature built-in GPS capability and an onboard display. The Transcend goggles provide real-time location, speed, and altitude data while you ski, snowboard, or snowmobile. Out of the box the Transcend goggles are impressive. They feature Zeal's contemporary styling, and have a substantial feel. Although they look a little bulky, the goggles do not feel heavy or too large when worn. They are well vented (I never had a fogging problem) and provide great visibility and optics. But what really sets the Transcends apart from other goggles is the on-board GPS and data display. A small pod built into the lower edge of the right lens area contains a tiny color LCD display mounted behind a compact lens.

These goggles are the greatest. They are probably the coolest thing I've ever purchased. It's nice to see how fast you were going on the last run and run count and vertical feet are great to. Then you get to go home and download the info to your computer and you can ski were you skied all day. I recently brought these heli-skiing and it was so cool to see my progress throught the day. Worth the cash, especially if you get them on discount.
Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

Everything about the functionality is great. It is easy to read the unobtrusive red screen below the right eye and the GPS gives great information. For me, however, the goggles are a bit too large and reach down to the tip of my nose.
Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: a bit bulky
