Recording 360-degree video gives you the opportunity to be fully immersed in every recorded memory. But before VIRB 360, it wasn’t worth the hassle. With one-touch recording and one-click stabilization¹, Garmin makes shooting, sharing and watching 360 video easier and better than ever.
Two lenses capture everything above, below and around the camera — a full sphere of high-quality photos and videos.
A lot, actually. VIRB 360 is the first to pack the following new features — and more — into its small, lightweight body:
VIRB 360 captures fully spherical videos and photos. That means virtually everything above, below and around the camera so you’ll never again have to worry about framing your shot.

Stitching is the process of combining video footage or photos captured by the camera’s 2 lenses. VIRB 360 will automatically stitch your footage in the camera in up to 4K/30fps resolution, saving you time and energy.
Out of the box, the camera will do the stitching for you. For a higher resolution and more control, you can record in 5K or 5.7K resolution and use the video stitching software of your choice to stitch the footage.
