Garmin® unveils VIRB® Ultra 30: A best-in-class Ultra HD 4K action camera with exclusive features

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the VIRB Ultra 30, a waterproof1 action camera with
the power to shoot stunning Ultra HD footage at 4K/30fps. Conveniently
small and lightweight, the VIRB Ultra 30 is rugged and ready for
adventure with purpose-built features for users to tailor and relive
their action-packed VIRB footage. Thanks to its high precision sensors
and GPS, the action camera automatically gathers meaningful G-Metrix™
data to show how far, how high, and how fast users live their
adventures. The versatile VIRB Ultra 30 introduces a suite of exclusive
features unmatched by any other action camera on the market. This
includes voice control2, an intuitive LCD color touchscreen,
one-touch live streaming3, 3-axis image stabilization, and
more. The action camera’s simplicity allows thrill-seekers to focus on
their favorite sport or activity without complicated camera operations.

“One of the best things about the VIRB Ultra 30 is how easy it is to
use, you can actually tell the camera to start and stop recording,” said
Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Whether you’re an
action guru or novice, the ready-to-use VIRB Ultra 30 will simplify the
way video is captured, edited and shared.”

Shooting rich Ultra HD video at 4K/30fps or securing slow motion video
at 720p/240fps, is complimented by the action camera’s ability to
capture crisp still photos using 12MP. In addition, smooth 3-axis image
stabilization maintains steady footage regardless of the terrain. The
VIRB Ultra 30 accepts one microSD card4 and includes a
high-sensitivity microphone that records every breathtaking moment –
even when the action camera is secured in the included waterproof5
case. The easy-to-use LCD color touchscreen was also designed to work in
and out of the waterproof case to let users customize their settings and
easily view what is being recorded. Furthermore, the waterproof case
features a water-repellant, anti-glare coated lens to capture crystal
clear video in water environments and more.

The VIRB Ultra 30 embodies power made simple like no other action camera
with Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ voice control.2 Users can now
speak several straightforward commands to the action camera, such as “OK
Garmin, start recording,” or “OK Garmin, remember that,” to tag specific
moments from recordings that can be effortlessly reviewed later on.

The free Garmin VIRB app allows users to easily share high-definition
VIRB Ultra 30 videos in real-time by streaming3 live to
YouTube™, and upload video adventures on social media sites such as
Facebook and Garmin Connect™ Share. Additionally, the VIRB app
transforms smartphones or tablets into Wi-Fi® remote controls
for the action camera. The feature-rich Garmin VIRB® Edit is
a desktop editing software that can auto-create videos automatically
highlighting the best moments captured by the VIRB Ultra 30. Devoted
editors or newcomers can easily add preloaded music and animated
G-Metrix data gauges to show off their own thrilling experience during
an activity.

The VIRB Ultra 30 ships with a complimentary waterproof case and is now
globally available through Amazon with a suggested retail price of
