Actions Cameras: Garmin Virb Elite

Best for Stat Junkies

Garmin's camera doesn't have standout image quality (colors were muted), but it unsurprisingly has the best navigation-based features of all the models we tested. In addition to tracking location and speed with a built-in GPS, the Elite detects elevation and G-forces, which means it can automatically start filming at the beginning of your bike run and stop when you've reached the bottom of the mountain. The built-in 1.4-inch display, a feature most other cams lack, is perfect for framing shots on the fly, too. [$400; garmin.com]
