The Video Swim Goggles want to help you get a closer look at underwater excursions
Summer presents us with new opportunities. We can go biking, hiking, and swimming without the fear of freezing to death. Not many people are inclined to put their bodies in water if it’s too cold or too hot, but it’s always tempting as lounging in water is one of the few places you can feel weightless. Since there is so much we don’t know about the great depths of the ocean, we’re often curious about what lies beneath the surface.
If you like exploring bodies of water and wish you could not only see what you’re doing, but film your adventures as well, then you might like these Video Swim Goggles. They have a built-in lens that can shoot 1080p wide-angle video, as well as take 3MP photos. There is a slot that will support up to a 32 GB SDHC card, which can hold a decent amount of photos and video. Sadly, the filmed part of your excursions will have to be chosen carefully, because the built-in battery will only last for about 1.5 hours on a full charge. When it loses its juice, you’ll have to charge it up again via USB.
It will continue to be waterproof as far down as 15 feet under water, but you probably don’t want to try and figure out what happens when you go deeper. There is an on/off vibration alert, so you won’t be pressing buttons thinking you just captured the greatest footage ever, only to find out it was never on in the first place. You will need to purchase the memory card on your own, which will tack onto the $120 price tag for this device.
