Garmin VIRB X, XE differences dictated by video quality

By Peter Chubb - Apr 13, 2015

Garmin has decided to level up its action cam range by bringing two new models to market that will be able to compete even better with the likes of the GoPro. The new models in question are the VIRB X and XE with the main differences between the both to do with their video quality.

The Garmin VIRB X and XE action cameras do have one huge obstacle, and that is how to persuade you to go for one of these models rather than the GoPro, as we know those are the preferred devices for many consumers. However, Garmin has a neat trick, and that is to make these new cams work anywhere and be able to talk to anything, within reason of course.

The new design of both models allow them to be used underwater, even without a case, something the GoPro Hero 4 cannot. However, there are suggestions that the Hero 5 could be waterproof without the need for a case, and while this is a big deal, Garmin has beaten them to the punch.
