The VIRB Elite includes all the features of the basic VIRB™, with the addition of Wi-Fi and GPS capabilties.
It is a true 1080p High Definition Sports Action Camera with 1080p HD video recording using a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor/image processor.

The VIRB Elite features:
• 1.4" Chroma™ color display
• High-sensitivity GPS, accelerometer, and barometric altimeter
• Wi-fi connectivity lets you control the camera from your smart phone, input real time data from other devices, etc.
• Rechargeable lithium-ion battery (record up to 3 hours at 1080p)
• Rugged, durable, and waterproof (IPX7) - with an aerodynamic design

VIRB Elite records true High Definition 1080p sports action video for full, high-contrast, undistorted detail.
You can adjust resolution and filming speed for crisp, dramatic slow motion up to 120fps.
The WideVü lens and 16 megapixel CMOS sensor/image processor produce the highest quality video - even before you start editing it.

Don’t lose a moment of video just to capture a photograph.
VIRB Elite lets you take still photos at the same time you are recording video with just a touch of the button on either your remote Garmin device or on the camera itself. Shoots single frames, photo burst, and time lapse.

Unlike competing cameras, the VIRB Elite features a long-life battery for up to 3 hours of HD recording at a time. The battery is easily accessible - so you can swap it out in just seconds to extend your recording session.
The VIRB Elite also has the best on/off mechanism currently available on any action camera.
It's an oversize sliding switch that is easy to use, even with gloves on — no more guessing whether the camera is on or off.

Heavy on the technical side...

High Definition Recording
VIRB records true HD 1080p video.
Dramatic slow motion up to 120fps.

1.4" Chroma Display
Why mash a button and hope you got the shot when you can set up, preview, and playback video on the built-in, full-color display?
The 1.4" display on VIRB is also your window into the menu settings.
Check your shot before you leap, choose slow motion or even switch between video and still photography.
It’s always on the screen, and the screen is always on.
The display is always on, and is powered by sunlight (with a low-power battery backup).

Long-Life Battery
VIRB features a class-leading 2000 mAh lithium-ion battery that tested up to an impressive 3 hours recording time at 1080p.
Recharging is as easy as connecting it to your computer, or plugging it in to a wall.
Extend your filming time by carrying a replacement battery (sold separately).

Sleek and Easy-to-Use
VIRB was engineered for easy operation with a large, instant record slider switch on the side of the camera.
The slide and click of the switch makes it easy to know that you are recording, even if you’re wearing gloves.
The overall design of the camera is both sleek and rugged which helps you integrate VIRB into your activity without having to work around a blocky camera.

Control VIRB Remotely
VIRB uses ANT+™ wireless connectivity so you can use a compatible Garmin device, such as fenix, Oregon and Edge, as remote controls.
There is also a dedicated remote control working with the same ANT+ connectivity, so you don’t have to take your hands off the handlebars or remove the camera from the mount to stop and start recording to take still images.

Digital Stabilization
With the Digital Stabilization feature engaged, VIRB adds a little stability to bumpy rides and adventures so you can share a smoother video with your friends.
Lens Distortion Correction (LDC) works to enhance the quality of your video, even before you start editing.

High Definition Photography
VIRB is a high-powered digital photo camera, too.
Lens Distortion Correction makes your single photos sharper, clearer and less distorted.
Shoot 16 megapixel, 12 megapixel or 8 megapixel as a single-shot (on-camera button or controlled remotely), or choose Photo Burst, or Time Lapse at various intevals.
And it’s all processed through a 16 megapixel CMOS processor for high quality images.

Just a word about that Time Lapse feature.... If you've ever created a time lapse video, you know it can be a pain in the butt...often involving thousands of photos, two separate software programs, and a lot of work. The VIRB allows you to simply select a photo interval, turn it on... and it automatically compiles the video. No editing, no re-sizing. Just quick and simple and fun!

Video and Photographs at the Same Time
Don’t lose a moment of video just to capture a photograph.
VIRB lets you take still photos at the same time you are recording video with just a touch of the button on either your remote Garmin device or on the camera itself.

Editing Made Easy
VIRB Edit is free desktop editing software that you can download to your computer for intuitive, robust, video editing that takes advantage of Garmin inter-compatibility.
Use VIRB Edit to import your footage from VIRB Elite to your computer.
The footage will be organized into small, easy-to-manage clips and displayed in the order they were shot, making it simple to see them at a glance and select them for editing.
If you collected GPS data with the VIRB Elite, you can use that data to create an overlay that indicates speed, elevation, and G-force in sync with your video.
With data from other Garmin devices, you can also add metrics, such as heart rate and cadence by connecting to your VIRB via ANT+™ wireless technology.
This display adds meaningful context and helps reveal the true effort, heart-pounding suspense, and thrill of each moment.
Simple editing controls allow you to trim, reorder, and stitch clips together to tell your story with your best footage.
You can add a music track as well as adjust the speed and volume of individual clips.
When you're done, it's easy to publish your video directly to YouTube to share with friends and family.
You can export the video to your computer and post on sites such as Vimeo™, Google+™ and Facebook™.

A variety of mounts let you firmly lock the camera in position, virtually anywhere.
From curved, flat deck and dash mounts to handlebar, helmet, shoulder and multi-use strap mounts, our mounts have you covered.
Mounts have interlocking joints that grip in place instead of relying solely on tension for a more durable, anti-vibration locking performance.
There is even an adapter to use VIRB with other industry mounts.

Optional Underwater Case
VIRB is rugged and waterproof to (IPX7) right out of the box.
For deeper dives and more sustained exposure, the optional Dive Case increases the waterproof rating to 50 meters (164 ft).
