The VIRB XE action camera shoots rich, high-definition, wide-angle footage at 1080p60, 12 megapixel photos at up to 30 frames per second, and captures more of your action. Designed for the toughest environments, VIRB XE is able to dive to 50 metre depths without a case, allowing capture of cleaner and clearer audio. Powered by Garmin GPS, G-Metrix allows you to track and overlay how fast, how far, how high and how intense the moment truly was.

Professional Video Capture

Shoot stunning high definition video in 1440p30, 1080p60 and 720p120, capture your experiences in vivid detail. Featuring a custom, all-glass lens, high frame rates up to 240FPS (480p) and Manual camera controls like white balance, exposure biasing/locking, sharpness, ISO limit and colour palette.

The High-resolution colour touchscreen display stays readable in direct sunlight.

High-quality Photography

Dedicated photo button and the ability to shoot wide-angle 12 megapixel photos at speeds up to 30 frames per second. You can even capture photos while recording video. Shoot timelapse photos automatically at intervals up to 120 seconds. VIRB XE will sleep between shots, allowing you to maximise your battery life for exceptionally long captures.


Capture more than just video of the moment with built-in Garmin GPS, G-force, and orientation sensors. Wirelessly connect to external sensors and Garmin devices to capture exciting performance data. Use our free VIRB Edit software (available for mobile and desktop) to tell a richer story by automatically overlaying gauges and graphs - showcase your speed, acceleration, heart rate and much more in real time.

Small & Rugged

The tough, compact design is ready to dive up to 50 meters without the need for additional equipment or cases. An exposed microphone records clean and clear audio that cameras in cases just can’t pick up. With a hydrophobic flat glass lens, underwater shots are crystal clear while transitions in and out of the water stay unobstructed by droplets.

Smooth Video

Built-in motion sensors to detect camera movements and help keep your shot steady. Electronic image stabilisation reduces camera shake and blur, whether you’re bouncing over harsh terrain or taking a snapshot with a shaky hand.

Connect your VIRB through WiFi®

Line up your shot with live video preview, then control and view one or more multiple cameras by connecting to the Garmin VIRB® Mobile App on your compatible smartphone or tablet. Playback and edit recorded footage, overlay G-Metrix data and push your videos to the cloud. VIRB XE can also be controlled and configured from a compatible Garmin device.

One-Touch Recording

With a 1-touch record switch on the top of the camera and a dedicated camera shutter button for still photos. The switch makes it easy to know that you are recording and gives full tactile control even if you can’t see the camera on your head or if you’re wearing gloves. The recording starts the moment you flip the switch, even if the camera is off.

Alternatively use automatic recording which starts recording when the device begins moving.

Keep Going with Rugged Power

Weatherproof power contacts so you can connect to a vehicle battery or other power source to allow for long periods of uninterrupted recording in even the toughest conditions. VIRB XE also features a rechargeable/replaceable lithium-ion battery for maximum flexibility.

Excellence through wireless HD Sound

Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, VIRB XE can connect directly to wireless Bluetooth headsets or microphones to capture audio in high definition. Capture your commentary live and uninterrupted.

Use your Garmin Ecosystem

Leverage the powerful Garmin ecosystem to extend camera control and pull in additional performance data. Monitor and control your VIRB XE with the optional remote and all kinds of portable, wearable or installed navigation devices. Pull additional data through optional Garmin sensors or via compatible fitness, aviation and marine equipment.

Multi-camera Synchronisation

Using the power of Garmin GPS, VIRB XE simplifies complicated multi-camera shots by automatically synchronising footage with sub-frame accuracy using GPS timestamps. Use VIRB Edit to seamlessly switch between multiple camera angles with the click of a button.

VIRB Tracking

VIRB Tracking lets you know the last known position of your camera so you can retrieve it. Use the VIRB Tracking function with a compatible Garmin device or compatible smartphone.

Incredible Video Without Hassle

VIRB Edit, our free desktop software, automatically generates great, ready-to-share videos of your experiences thanks to the G-Metrix data collected by VIRB. Choose manual controls to review and edit your footage, adjust G-Metrix gauges, add music and seamlessly switch between camera angles.

True Action-Quality Mounts
