Action cameras have been very popular over the past 5 years but a few things have been missing. All that changes with the new Garmin VIRB Elite.
VIRB Elite now offers wireless transfer of your footage to Smartphone or PC and adds the ability to display onscreen data metrics like heart rate, pace, distance, cadence, elevation and other data, along with live maps, right in the screen shot. This technology leap frogs what had previously been available.
At the Heart Rate Watch Company we pride ourselves on carrying the best available technology for outdoor athletes and with VIRB we feel we definitely have the best available technology.
We test everything we sell and let you know what we feel the best available action cameras, GPS watches and heart rate monitors are every year.
VIRB is more aerodynamic than a square camera shape like GoPro and with the advent of onscreen metrics and Wifi capability it has surpassed the features of all competitors with a robust system that delivers unbelievable action sports footage combined with data metrics and maps.
Beacuse the Garmin VIRB Elite is from Garmin you can count on the fact that the maps and map data base accessible in the software are world-class.
Garmin has just turned the action camera market on its head by bringing to bear technologies that had previously existed but have never been combined together.
INTERFACE WITH OTHER GARMIN DEVICES
Garmin VIRB Elite can communicate with Garmin bike computers and GPS watches that are embedded with Bluetooth Smart. This means that VIRB Elite can pickup all your data from a Garmin Edge 810, Garmin Edge 510 and Garmin fenix GPS watch and drop it right onto the screen so that it is synchronized in real-time with the activity along with GPS maps. This is so killer that it changes the whole game.
