Our take on the Garmin VIRB Remote Control

Control your Garmin VIRB or VIRB Elite camera without taking your eyes off the trail, slope, halfpipe — whatever action sport you're engaged in. This ergonomic remote features ANT+™ wireless technology to communicate with your VIRB camera, plus a simple three-button layout that's easy for your hands to learn by feel. If you can spare a quick glance down, LED lights will show you when the remote has recognized your camera, and when your camera is recording. A wrist strap and neck lanyard are included.
