Anybody using a Garmin VIRB camera?
I've been looking at the GoPro cameras for a trip to Hawaii next month, for biking, diving, flying (my son's a pilot), and whatever else we do there, but in checking around this new Garmin caught my eye. It has GPS of course, plus altimeter, accelerometer, and image stabilization, plus since it is also ANT+ will take speed, cadence and HRMs. The video specs are on par with the GoPro, where reviews seem to go either way on the actual video results.
It just seems like this has a lot of stuff we'd want as cyclists. What it doesn't have as of yet is the full range of accessories, which is where the GoPro really excels. But what do I really need? A helmet or handlebar mount and some mount for in the water. I don't ski, snowboard, mtb, skydive, or do anything like that, but my kids ski and would probably want to use it.
One really cool use I can see is making videos of your standard rides, but having it display all the data that also gets recorded, so you display speed, cadence and HR and you can match that on your trainer. Better than the Sufferfest! (which are pretty good btw, they keep me motivated.)
Checking around the net hasn't really brought up any real-world users, mostly just the announcements with a few side by sides with the GoPro. So has anybody here tried it yet?
