Waterproof voice-activated remote control
Our take on the GoPro Remo by Crutchfield's Eric Angevine
Voice-activated remote control
The GoPro Remo looks pretty basic — it resembles a wristwatch with a big, red "start" button on it. Granted, that button does let you start and stop your GoPro HERO5 Black action camera with a single press, but there's more. The Remo also recognizes and wirelessly transmits 13 voice commands, so you can say "GoPro start recording" or "GoPro take a picture" for a truly hands-free experience.
