  • Can your action camera do this — record on command? Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 Action Camera GPS can. This waterproof, ultra HD action camera features voice control so you can tell the camera to start, stop and “remember that.” That means more hands-free selfies when you’re looking fearless — and easier editing when the action’s all done. It’s small, weighs next to nothing, and it’s ready to take on any dare or adventure, thanks to the included waterproof case.  

    How It Works

    • Ultra HD 4K/30fps footage with 1.75-inch touchscreen display that lets you see what is being recorded.  
    • 3-axis image stabilization captures smooth and steady video, no matter the terrain.  
    • Shoot hands-free using voice control¹ to start/stop recording, take photos or remember moments.  
    • Built-in sensors and GPS capture G-Metrix™ data to prove how far, how high and how fast you went.  
    • High-sensitivity microphone captures clear audio in and out of the waterproof case.  


    • Stabilized Ultra HD Video - This best-in-class camera shoots up to 4K/30fps video action to show all your adventures in crisp, brilliant detail. VIRB Ultra 30 also features 3-axis image stabilization, so whether you’re snowboarding, cycling or off-roading, footage won’t come out shaky.  
    • Control with Your Voice - You still need to operate your camera when it’s out of reach, mounted on your helmet or when your hands are simply busy doing other things. That’s why VIRB Ultra 30 action camera features voice control¹ using Sensory TrulyHandsfree™ technology. Use simple commands such as “start recording” or “take a picture” to operate the camera hands-free. You can even tell VIRB Ultra 30 to “remember that,” and it will tag footage for you to easily recall later.  
    • Prove It - Your active lifestyle is about more than just video and audio. Capture relevant performance data with G-Metrix technology, including speed, altitude, G-force and even heart rate. Built-in Garmin GPS (10 Hz) and other sensors automatically record data so you can easily overlay gauges and graphs onto your footage to prove how far, how high and how fast you went. Other compatible Garmin sensors and devices pair with your VIRB to extend camera control and provide detailed, measurable data tailored to your activity. Check the Compatible Devices and Accessories tabs for a list of compatible products and sensors.  
    • Share the Experience with Live Streaming - With the free VIRB® Mobile app, you’re just 1 touch away from sharing your high-definition footage with the masses by live-streaming on YouTube®. So the next time you’re owning the mountain on your bike or standing first row at an incredible concert, you don’t have to wait to share the experience.  
    • Our Most Connected Camera Yet - When you’re not broadcasting to the world, you can still take advantage of wireless capability by connecting your VIRB Ultra 30 to the VIRB Mobile app. With this free app on your compatible smartphone or tablet, you can prepare the perfect shot, control multiple cameras, edit and even share footage. Wireless casting is also available with Miracast-enabled devices such as Roku® and others.  
    • Easy Operation - We’re making it easier than ever to capture life’s incredible moments with VIRB Ultra 30 action camera. The bright LCD color touchscreen lets you see exactly what is being recorded. Its intuitive touchscreen works in and out of the included waterproof case, and simple menus let you easily adjust settings if needed. Turn the camera on and off swiftly with 1-touch buttons, or snap a quick photo during the action.  
    • Create and Share Videos - The free VIRB Mobile app not only lets you live-stream video footage — you can also use the app to view, edit and share videos that automatically highlight the best moments in your footage. Apply G-Metrix data overlays, and then share with friends on social media. VIRB® Edit desktop software offers an easy-to-use, feature-rich editing program that lets you auto-create videos, add music, trim video clips, incorporate transitions and perfect your video.
