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.
Gizmodo - The Garmin Virb Elite was one of our favorite action cams a year ago, which was a big surprise from a company known more for navigation and sports watches. It had some unique features and impressively sharp optics. It was big and bulky, though, and it topped out at 1080p/30fps, so it couldn’t hang with the big boys. Well the second generation of this camera is coming, and we’re pretty excited about it.
For starters, it’s a totally different form-factor. Last year’s Virb was kind of an oblong bullet shape. Well it’s been completely redesigned and now sports a GoPro-ish rectangular shape. It seems like it might be a bit on the wide side—which wouldn’t be great for aero or hydrodynamics—but it’s a bit hard to tell from these first images.
