What the community says about Garmin Virb XE
- "I needed a wearable camera that was able to auto-standby, and the Garmin Virb XE has really met my needs. It is the perfect accessory to my wardrobe, and serves as both a high definition still camera and video camera, something that is still amazing to this child of the seventies."
- "G-METRIX-Built-in GPS and external sensors with connectivity to Garmin devices to capture performance data like speed, elevation, heart rate and G-force ADVANCED VIDEO - Capture thrilling footage with high definition 1080p resolution at 60 frames-per-second, or capture up to 240 frames-per-second slow motion BURST CAPABILITY - The VIRB X and VIRB XE offer a burst shooting mode that will capture several photographs in quick succession so that you don’t miss the action. WATERPROOF - Waterproof to 50 meters without a case, allowing control of cleaner and clearer video and audio. Weather proof contacts allow for rugged charging and powering BLUETOOTH AUDIO - VIRB X and VIRB XE can connect directly to wireless Bluetooth headsets or microphones to capture audio in high definition"
- "The Garmin Virb XE is an excellent portable and wearable camera. You can easily upload, drop, and share all of your footage. I have used it for about 6 months now, and I'm very pleased with it. Though it is a bit on the expensive side, it has lots of advanced features. It is even better than the GoPro, and I really like its audio and video quality."
- "The good (+3) - Highly portable. I can quickly charge it and stick it in my pocket for on-the-go shooting. - Waterproof. Drop this in water and you'll be fine. Swish it around, and still fine. Go diving, yep, still fine (up to 33' without housing). - Android connectivity. It works fantastically! With the Capture app, I can pay attention to the shot on my 5" phone screen while guiding my arm. - Stabilization. Unbelievably good. If I'm doing a panning shot or walking down stairs, I don't have to worry about arm jiggle. It's smooth on a bike. - Audio. Multi-directional recording on this tiny camera is very good. Listen to the raw audio in the attached video to see what I mean. - Sturdy construction. The smooth plastic, large touch screen, and heft give it a quality feel fitting to the price range. - Timelapses look great! I recorded a 2-hour once-per-2-seconds timelapse on a single battery and was able to immediately wirelessly transfer it to my phone and share it. ""The VIRB XE action camera shoots rich, high definition footage at 1080p/60fps, 12 megapixel photos at up to 30fps, and captures even more of your action with G-Metrix. Powered by Garmin GPS, G-Metrix allows you to track and overlay how fast, how far, how high, and how intense the moment truly was. And, VIRB X and VIRB XE are able to dive to 50 meters without a case, allowing you to capture cleaner and clearer video and audio.""The Garmin Virb XE isn't exactly cheap, but when it comes to capturing those action shots when in the water the cost really is justified. The quality on this camera is amazing. I also like the additional sensors that can include information about water depth and stuff to the video. I'm almost glad that I couldn't find a GoPro in time for our last vacation and decided to buy this."
