The TomTom company is a well-known manufacturer of car navigation systems. They noticed a growing interest in outdoor cameras so they gave it a shot and made one too. And it seems they made a right move!
TomTom Bandit offers 4K resolution but only at 15 fps per second, although the 1080p resolution at 60 fps sounds much better. If you’re comfortable with a lower quality of image, then Bandit can even handle 120 fps in 720p resolution and if we lower our standards a little bit more, we can get 180 fps in VGA. The photos are then in the maximum resolution – 16 Mpx.
In the default setup we can appreciate the IPx7 waterproofness. After the installation of the cover cap we get IPx8 waterproofness which allows you an uninterrupted stay in water in the maximum depth of 50 meters with water resistance rating of 5 ATM.
The camera recognizes the best shot and it’s possible to share it immediately on social networks. The preview of the video can be seen on your smartphone using the official app. There’s even a special feature – by shaking the smartphone it automatically picks the best shots and cuts them. Furthermore, it has a gyroscope in it, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS.
The weakest part is usually the battery. TomTom put inside the Bandit an accumulator with the capacity of 1900 mAh which assures 3 hours of recording in 1080p at 30 fps.
TomTom Bandit’s size is 94 x 38 x 52 mm and weighs 190 grams. It’s been sold for approximately 500$ and there are some holders in the package as a bonus. However, you have to pay more to get the waterproof cover cap.
