Garmin is known for their navigation devices and are now getting into the camera biz with their VIRB HD action camera. The 1080p camera features a built-in Chroma display and can film smarter and longer with its three-hour battery. Its best-in-class 2000mAh rechargeable Lithium-ion battery will provide you with lots of time to record all the fun and if you’re still moving, the power pack can easily swap out so that the show can go on. It’s rugged and waterproof design allows you to take it anywhere with you so that you always catch the most exciting moments of your adventures. It can survive the bumps, drops and more and can record in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. You can choose to get an optional dive case that protects it up to 50 meters.
The 1.4″ Chroma high-res color screen will show you exactly what you’re filming and features easy set-up, preview and play back. The display actually uses the sun’s light and stays on while the camera on but won’t drain your battery. The WideVu Lens will allow you to catch your action up close and personal or via big-picture panoramic. The 9-element glass lens shoots in three modes – wide, medium and narrow. And you can pair other Garmin products with the BIRB to record your heart rate, cadence and more.
