Action cam is quite the world traveler

from Motorcycle.com

There’s no shortage of action cameras on the market, and we’ve had our fair share of GoPros, but for motorcyclists we see the Virb X or XE as extra beneficial simply because of its ease of operation when wearing leather gloves. Ours has functioned in heat, cold, dirt and salt water without failure.

A fantastic camera for capturing data along with your video

If you want to produce videos with various dashboard metrics overlaid on it – like power, speed, pace, acceleration, etc… For this, the Garmin VIRB X/XE rocks. They’ve taken all of the quirks of the original VIRB and really cleaned them up, and the desktop software is just super easy to use...More

If you want to produce videos with various dashboard metrics overlaid on it – like power, speed, pace, acceleration, etc… For this, the Garmin VIRB X/XE rocks. They’ve taken all of the quirks of the original VIRB and really cleaned them up, and the desktop software is just super easy to use and produces really pretty videos (but I find the phone app flaky).

An extremely sophisticated piece of equipment with a user-friendly interface so that you can capture the action without a lot of fiddling around with buttons. I know many of you will be comparing this either to the GoPro Hero 3+ or 4, or to the previous VIRB cameras, and honestly it all comes down to what you want in a POV camera. The VIRB is a powerful, easy-to-use tool steeped in features, but at the expense of video quality and inconsistent metering.

The XE is a solid performer and you won't be disappointed with the quality

from TechRadar

The Virb XE will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts who want to capture the action and check out speed and other related data. Integration with other Garmin devices such as heart monitors takes a while to setup but once done the added information is of real interest.

An action sports camera to capture your adventures

Garmin’s versatile Virb XE is as advanced or as simple as you want it to be

We found the Garmin Virb XE to have more functions than that average shooter will use.

We found the Garmin Virb XE to have more functions than that average shooter will use. It does classic time-lapse images, shoots up-close candid stills, and rolls 1080p high-definition video at 60 frames a second. With thoughtful design, intuitive button layout, and easy to understand menus, Garmin has removed most of the overhead normally involved with operating action cams. Video professionals may want some of the custom functionality and higher resolution options found on a GoPro, but for those of us who want to strap on a camera, flip a switch, and record a little video on the fly (with performance metrics included), there is no better action camera on the market.

Great quality footage, lots of stats

from Cyclist

The footage that the camera produces is excellent, and remarkably smooth. The wide-angle lens takes a little bit of getting used to coming from an iPhone but you quickly get an idea of what’s in the frame.

The footage that the camera produces is excellent, and remarkably smooth. The wide-angle lens takes a little bit of getting used to coming from an iPhone but you quickly get an idea of what’s in the frame. Because the Virb XE has inbuilt GPS receivers and accelerometers, it is able to capture G-Metrix and, using the Garmin edit software, can overlay them on the video.

A seemingly unlimited number of accessories, sensors, and mounts compatible with the VIRB made mounting it almost anywhere—and using it with other data collection devices—a hassle-free experience. Capturing high-res movies with the flip of a switch couldn’t be easier. And, if you’ve ever created a video, you will instantly find the VIRB edit software intuitive and more than satisfactory for creating and exporting captured ride videos—with data and set to your favorite tunes—an efficient and fun experience.
