For day six of our 12 Days of Hidden Gems we diving back into connected hardware. Have you ever jumped out of a plane and wished you could record it? What about capturing the night sky on a mountain using time-lapse photography? Now you can with the Garmin VIRB Elite camera and accompanying Windows Phone app!
Although Microsoft Lumia smartphones tend to have some of the best video recording around, there is still a need for more extreme solutions for some users. After all, you most likely do not want to strap your Lumia to your motorcycle helmet, affix it to your car, or tether down on your plane's wing (you do have a plane, right?).
Garmin's VIRB Elite camera is one solution to a problem for some dangerous scenarios. Running for around $260, the Garmin VIRB Elite is one of the most useful wearable cameras you can buy today. Not only that, their official Windows Phone app just arrived last week, which is why I am taking a look at the VIRB Elite for today's Hidden Gems.
