Tom Tom Takes On Go Pro With Slick Looking Action Camera

X

Struggling to hold onto share in the navigation market European Company TomTom is now having a crack at trying to take on Go Pro and a host of other Companies who believe they have a future competing in the action camera market.

Tom Tom has launched a very slick looking device called the Bandit that has a built-in media server that allows it to process videos before sharing them with a smartphone.

The device is also able to create a highlights compilation from available video clips whenever the user shakes the camera.

The camera includes GPS and motion sensors that can monitor a variety of statistics during filming, including speed, altitude, G-force, acceleration, and when attached to a separate accessory, heart rate. When shaken, it uses these data points to work out which clips would be best to include in the compilation, with users of its companion app able to make changes, add data overlays, and add music on the camera itself, before downloading and sharing it with others.

Using a 16-megapixel sensor, the Bandit can shoot single and burst photos at up to 10FPS, as well as 1080p video at 60FPS and 720p at 120FPS, though it can also be pushed to 4K video at 15FPS. Connectivity options include SuperSpeed USB 3.0, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and it also has an additional case that allows it to be waterproof at a depth of 50 meters (164 feet).

TomTom expects to ship the Bandit next month in Europe for ?430. In Australia the device could be close to $600 with a premium pack, this puts it in the same league as the 4K Go Pro when it goes on sale in the last quarter.
