The Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 4K Action Cam

If you’ve had your eye on a 4K Ultra HD action cam, like a GoPro HERO4, Garmin just introduced a somewhat slicker option with built-in voice command you might be interested in checking out further.

The Garmin VIRB Ultra 30, which is available now at a $499.99 retail price, includes a host of features including: a built-in 1.7-inch LCD touchscreen that works even with the waterproof (to 133 feet) case on; 4K Utra HD video recording at up to 30 fps or 1080p at up to 120fps; 3-axis image stabilization and livestreaming to YouTube.

For added convenience, the camera’s voice-command feature lets users control camera functions by simply speaking “OK Garmin” as an activation trigger before adding instructions like “start recording” to begin the desired task.
