The Garmin Virb XE records data such as acceleration, engine RPM, G forces, lap times and more of such telemetry that is related to the activity you use the camera for. Powered by Garmin GPS, the G-Metrix tech allows you to track and overlay how fast, how far, how high, and how intense the moment truly was. In addition, the VIRB X and VIRB XE are able to dive to 50 meters without a case.

So that you can replay your story in greater detail, Garmin’s free mobile and desktop software along with the G-metrix tech allows one to add preset gauges, graphs and track shapes – automatically synched to your video and tailored for your activity. You can even build your own with their free Gauge Building Tool.
