  • The Good:

    Capturing the metrics is a cool dynamic to add to an action sports camera. The anti-fog desiccant chip is smart, since the camera is always enclosed in a case. Simple on/off flip switch that's easy to use quickly while on the run. Setup with the App was straight forward and streamlined.

    The Bad:

    After a few more rides, I'm looking for a way to export the Metrics only. I would like to capture it for timing, and then adjust for different usage in Final Cut. Using Virb Edit will be limiting when trying to create edits that are not just straight for camera. Battery life is also pretty bad when you have the GPS on. It's cool to capture, but turn it off if you don't really want them. Having used a Hero4 Silver so much lately, I enjoy the LCD for quick verification. Too many times it feels like someone is waiting on me and Im over the F'ing with my camera and app. That's stupid. We need to ride more and fiddle less with this stuff.

    Overall Review: I finally got a chance to get my hands on the Garmin VIRB XE. This camera looks different than what you’re used to seeing and has many more options than most action cameras on the market. “I was fifth geared pinned” has a whole new meaning now that you can bring up the video from your Garm...
