Garmin VIRB XE



Show Description

The older sibling to the VIRB X, the XE features higher resolution and a better frame rate for capturing every stride, shred, drop, or turn. 1440p @ 30fps resolution offers crisp resolution, while new 240fps @ 480p and 120fps @ 720p slow-mo options provide crystal clear footage. An internal GPS and integrated G-Metrix software allows you to track and overlay heartrate, location, altitude, and speed to your finished video. Plus, Bluetooth 4.0 functionality lets you use a Bluetooth microphone for in-the-moment commentary. As tough as it is technically sophisticated, the VIRB XE is waterproofed to 50 meters without the need for an external case, while the flat front glass construction repels water droplets for consistently clear underwater and wet weather footage. To top it off, the VIRB XE utilizes the increasingly common GoPro mount, for a huge range of mounting options that capture every kind of action.
