Its ruggedness, waterproof design, and easy one-button control, 1080p video recording, and 8MP camera stills will enable you to record your progress while concentrating on the task at hand.

Lucky for you, we are giving away a GoPro Hero4 Session, and all you have to do to enter the contest is head over to Talk Android Deals.
