GoPro Smart Remote Review
If you’re looking to gain even more control of your GoPro camera when you’re out and using it, then purchasing a GoPro Smart Remote is the best choice you can make. The wearable camera itself has become extremely popular these days and the videos created with it serve a wide range of purposes. Whether you’re an adventurer that wants to capture his hikes or just a motorcyclist who’d like to do timelapses of his journeys, this camera is perfect. You can do even more when you pair it with a smart remote control, so let’s find out what makes this remote so special.
First of all, just like the GoPro itself, the GoPro Smart Remote is also wearable, so you can easily control the features of the camera without losing your overall pace. There is a key ring available for the remote, so you can connect it to your belt loops, for example. If you’d rather wear it as a watch, there is a wrist strap available, for even more convenience.
Probably the best feature of the GoPro Smart Remote is the possibly large distance you can have between the camera and the remote itself. The wearable remote will work up to 180 meters away from the camera, controlling its features instantly. Aside from working in this way, it’s also good to know the camera is waterproof. As long as you dive within the 10 meters depth interval, the remote will work without a fuss.
The GoPro Smart Remote is compatible with HERO3, HERO3+ and HERO4 cameras from GoPro, although the list of compatibility might be a bit longer. When it comes to compatibility and support, you might want to know you can control more than a single camera at once; in fact, this smart remote works with up to 50 cameras at the same time so you can virtually do anything with such an array.
The overall design of the GoPro Smart Remote is simple, allowing you to quickly access everything you need and control the camera in the perfect way. You can easily turn the device on and off whenever you need to, and you can capture photos in an instant. Moreover, you can also control the camera to turn video recording on and off, as well. These would be enough for some, but for many people adjusting settings on their GoPro is also important. This is why you have a dedicated button for this feature, so you can quickly set your camera just as you need to.
The LCD screen of the GoPro Smart Remote is designed to duplicate the screen of the camera, so you know exactly what’s going on. There’s one more important thing to know regarding this remote control: compared to the Wi-Fi Remote for the GoPro, this one has an improved battery. Thus, the battery’s lifetime has been increased by 40%, and you can easily charge it via USB. You can be sure the remote control won’t run out of juice when you need it the most.
