    There is nothing amazing about this remote but i don't think anyone is expecting much. The distance is far enough and the battery last as long or longer than the camera. Its waterproof so no need to worry about rain. Note the signal is lost when submerged in water so there is no use when diving. Overall it works great and is a must for most activities.

    This remote is amazing, works very good and is like having the camera in your hands, you really can control 100% the camera. The only downside in my opinion is the size of the screen and the lack of a backlight because under some conditions is really hard to read the screen

    Works well with HERO5... but is it needed?

    The GoPro Smart Remote works well with the HERO5 Black... but is it needed since the camera has voice recognition for triggering the recording? I went back and forth on this purchase... trying to justify if I needed the GoPro Smart Remote for my GoPro usage. In the end I think it is worth it for the following reasons: 1) Provides a silent way to stop video recording remotely (already tired of hearing my voice at the end of my clips) 2) Quick indication of the HERO5 status when it's mounted on your helmet/chest strap or someplace where you cannot see the camera front/back display. 3) Better accuracy in noisy environments or at long range 4) Able to control multiple cameras at same time 5) Better than trying to use the GoPro smartphone app Only shortcomings I have are... - Poor velcro wrist strap design that is uncomfortable to wear directly on your wrist(and barely fits over my wrist... Much less over a ski jacket sleeve) - Another device with a battery to charge and check (but when fully charged easily outlasts the run time of the HERO5 camera battery) In summary the voice recognition trigger capabilities on the HERO5 are great but the Smart Remote adds a bit more flexibility. Just wish the wrist strap was more functional and that the cost was lower ($50 vs $80) as it would of made it a much easier purchase decision for what it does. One last point... I think the Smart Remote is a much better option that the Voice Activated Remote as the display lets you see the current device/recording status at a glance.

    This remote comes in really handy when your GoPro is mounted on your head or in an area where it is difficult to access the camera to turn in on or off. Although your smartphone can operate the camera, this remote allows me to keep my phone in dry areas.

    I got the remote after using the app on my smartphone. The remote is much easier and the signal strength is much longer than phnoe. I will use the remote to save the battery life on my phone.

    Disappointed
    • Verified Purchaser

    There is no other way to run the Hero without introducing shake and shutter. The camera is to light. The remote gives you the ability to start and stop without the shake. I wish the remote had a screen to view what the camera sees. Having a camera, a remote to start and start and a smart phone to view is a bit to much.

    The remote failed to keep its initial full charge. Attempts to recharge it failed. While searching the internet for a possible solution, I discovered that the problem I was having was very common. I have two GoPro cameras and am very satisfied with them. This product is not up to standard.
