GoPro’s are awesome little devices. They fit in the palm of your hand, can handle all sorts of situations, and record some seriously smooth video, turning you into your own action sports star. But there’s just one thing wrong with them – you can’t see what you’re shooting. At least, not when it’s mounted to your helmet, bike or something else. That’s why you need a GoPro monitor of some sort, like the Removu R1+.
This nifty little monitor works with the HERO6, HERO5 Black, HERO4, HERO3+, HERO3 and HERO Session, and connects to the GoPro through the GoPro app. Then put it on with the included wristwatch and get back to filming. The two-inch screen is large and convenient enough for setting up shots, as well as controlling the camera; all the basic functions are there – record, stop and play, plus modes and settings. Far easier than reaching on your helmet to access the buttons. You can also replay GoPro videos on the screen. Battery life is promised at three hours. It’s waterproof down to depths of 3 feet for as long as 30 minutes, as well as dirt and dust proof – that’s an IPX7 rating. So no need to be gentle. This little guy can go anywhere your GoPro can.
