Introducing the New Zeal Optics Transcend GPS Goggle
Described as the most technologically advanced goggle in the world, the Transcend GPS™ features Recon Instruments’ proprietary GPS technology and Zeal Optics’ high-performance lens options. It features vertical odometer technologies and provides real-time access to performance statistics including speed, altitude, temperature, and time. Sleek graphics are completely non-obtrusive for front and peripheral vision, making it the ultimate solution for use in fast-paced, alpine environments. In February 2010, the Transcend GPS™ was awarded the 2010-2011 ISPO Boardsports Award in the highly competitive field of snow accessories.
Full GPS Capabilities
Transcend provides real-time feedback including speed, latitude/longitude, altitude, vertical distance traveled, total distance traveled, chrono/stopwatch mode, a run-counter, temperature and time. It is also the only pair of goggles in the world that boasts GPS capabilities, USB charging and data transfer, and free post-processing software all with a user-friendly, addictive interface.
Head Mounted Display
This is where it all happens. Just like the dashboard of a sports car or the instruments of a fighter jet, Transcend's display provides performance-enhancing data, but only when you choose to view it. In contrast to a Heads Up Display projected on the lens the Transcend is much less obtrusive and consumes far less power. It is the ideal display for this application's size and power consumption requirements.
The largest piece of information on the Dashboard is the Speedometer, represented by a dial that lights up from the bottom left-hand corner clockwise up to the top part of the Dashboard. The Speedometer shows in digital numbers how fast Transcend is moving in km/h or mph depending on your preference settings. The digital dial lights up several green bars based on your speed. If you reach higher green bars or red bars, it is suggested you adjust your speed appropriately to maintain the safety of yourself and others.
Transcend offers a configurable dashboard that allows you to choose one of the following Features to be displayed alongside the permanent Features of the main dashboard screen. The default feature viewed is Current Altitude. Choose from: Current altitude, total vertical distance traveled, total distance traveled across land, and current temperature.
Transcend is a smart device, in that it will give you real-time updates of important points of data while you perform an activity. These pop-ups alert you in hands-free fashion so you are aware when something significant or important has occurred. There are five major pop-ups that can occur while viewing the Dashboard: Altitude (for every 1500 feet above sea level), vertical odometer (for every 1500 vertical ft traveled), speed (every time max speed is topped), battery power (when within 2-3% of total power), and memory full.
Charge Time and Battery Life
In optimal conditions, Transcend can fast charge (battery life reaches 80%) through your computer or AC adapter in 1 hour. You can attain a 100% full charge in 3 to 5 hours. Transcend’s battery will last 6+ hours in optimal conditions, the equivalent to your average ski day. Simply recharge at any time through your computer or AC adapter.
Polarized lenses are essential for anyone who spends a lot of time out-side where glare is a factor. Different conditions require specific lens colors and treatments. Although Polarized is an ideal lens for many conditions, it is not ideal for every condition or every sport. For activities that involve polarizing glare such as snow sports, polarized lenses provides the optimum protection.
