With the release of the VIRB X and XE action cams last year, Garmin finally gave consumers a reason to choose its action cam over a GoPro. But while it had built-in sensors letting users measure just how extreme their stunts were, it topped out at a disappointing 1080p. The new VIRB Ultra 30, however, boosts that recordable resolution to 4K, and it introduces voice controls. Read More >>

Garmin VIRB X and XE: One of Our Favourite Action Cams is Levelling Up

The Garmin Virb Elite was one of our favourite action cams a year ago, which was a big surprise from a company known more for navigation and sports watches.
