Garmin has decided to upgrade their action VIRB cameras to a more competitive GoPro Like form factor with an impressive set of features that is sure to make adrenaline enthusiasts think twice about what camera to get.
What sets it apart is that the new Garmin VIRB cameras record, altitude, GPS, velocity, rotation, temperature in the file information as vectors to be applied to the footage later for analysis. As the video below shows, it is quite a revolutionary way of recording your adventure. While some might look at it like a gimmick, it is by no means a useless feature. Many scientific experiments could be performed by analyzing the data.
