On Wednesday, Garmin International teased the looming launch of the “versatile” VIRB 360, a small and fully spherical 360-degree camera.
Waterproof and rugged, we’re told that the VIRB 360 is an easy-to-use camera that captures impressive high-quality video up to 5.7K/30fps, with four built-in microphones.
Whether users are kayaking down river rapids or mountain biking through rough terrain, Garmin maintains that the VIRB 360’s 4K Spherical Stabilization makes every video “smooth and steady.”
With the VIRB 360, users capture video with automatic in-camera stitching up to 4K/30fps. Videos are easily uploaded for editing or sharing instantaneously. Taking advantage of its built-in GPS and numerous other sensors, the VIRB 360 provides owners with customizable G-Metrix data overlays in a captivating 360-degree augmented reality setting.
“The VIRB 360 lets you relive personal experiences and share them with your friends – from a different point of view, every single time,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “VIRB 360 owners will no longer need to worry about trying to capture the perfect angle or setting up the perfect shot. The camera’s easy-to-use feature set will make even the most inexperienced users look like experts.”
The Garmin VIRB 360 has a suggested retail price of $799.99 and is expected to be available in June.
