Garmin Virb Action Camera

It’s a known fact that GoPro really opened up the doors for action sports cameras, and the brand has really established itself as an industry leader early on. That’s not to say that other big names aren’t going to keep coming for the throne though, and we think the Garmin Virb Camera could be a serious contender.

It has all the essentials you’ve come to expect from action sports cameras – waterproof, HD recording capabilities, extremely portable and lightweight, and can literally attach to anything. It also lets you easily connect to mobile devices along with other Garmin devices as an added convenience. Where Garmin shines though is in the ability to incorporate their other technologies into the Virb. This particular camera features full GPS connectivity along with a built-in accelerometer and altimeter helping you to record your location, measure your speed, and even knows to turn on when you’ve reached the top of the ski slopes, and shut down when you’ve hit the bottom. Other nifty features include a wide eye lens and one touch power sliding switch. The Virb action camera is currently for sale on Amazon.
