Professional Video Capture
With the ability to shoot stunning high definition video in 1440p30, 1080p60 and 720p120, VIRB XE is ready to capture your experiences in vivid detail. Featuring a custom, all-glass lens, high resolutions, zoom levels and high frame rates up to 240FPS (480p), VIRB XE ensures you get the shots you need. Manual camera controls like white balance and exposure biasing unlock even greater flexibility in your video.
With a dedicated photo button and the ability to shoot wide-angle 12 megapixel photos at speeds up to 30 frames per second, VIRB XE is designed to get the image. You can even capture photos while recording video. VIRB XE can also be set to automatically capture photos over long periods of time at customisable intervals up to 120 seconds. With Extended Timelapse, 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 G-Metrix. VIRB XE contains built-in Garmin GPS, G-force, and orientation sensors to capture your story of high speed, crazy rotation and fantastic big air jump. VIRB XE has the ability to wirelessly connect to external sensors and Garmin devices – capturing exciting performance data from your race bike or sailing boat. 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 and Rugged
Small and light, take VIRB XE anywhere – it will take the beating. VIRB XE is ready to dive deep (up to 50 meters) without the need for additional equipment or cases. The tough, compact design is ready to withstand the elements. An exposed microphone records clean and clear audio that cameras in cases just can’t pick up. Thanks to a hydrophobic, flat, glass lens, underwater shots are crystal clear while transitions in and out of the water stay unobstructed by droplets.
VIRB XE contains motion sensors to detect camera movements and helps 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 VIRB XE to the Garmin VIRB® Mobile App on your compatible smartphone¹ or tablet. This gives you the ability to playback and edit recorded footage, overlay G-Metrix data and push your videos to the cloud. VIRB XE can even be comfortably controlled and configured from a compatible Garmin device.
VIRB XE was engineered for better control and easy operation with a 1-touch record switch on the top of the camera and a dedicated shutter button for still photos as known from your point and shoot camera. The solid click of 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.
Keep Going with Rugged Power
VIRB XE features 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. Whether you’re further away from your camera, or you’d rather capture your motorcycle commentary, VIRB XE ensures your audio needs are covered.
Use your Garmin Ecosystem
VIRB XE can leverage the powerful Garmin ecosystem to extend camera control and pull in additional performance data. Monitor and control your VIRB XE with the optional VIRB remote and all kinds of portable, wearable or installed navigation devices. You can pull additional data through optional Garmin sensors like the Garmin Vector cycling power sensor, Garmin Heart Rate sensor, or via compatible fitness, aviation and marine equipment.
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 eliminating time-consuming realignment and time codes.
VIRB Tracking lets you know the last known position of your camera so you can return and retrieve it. Use the VIRB Tracking function with a compatible Garmin device or compatible smartphone¹.

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.
