Why it's a buy: Strap this camera to your wrist or chest and you're set to snorkel, surf, bike, and more.

The Hero3, which works at up to 197 feet below, shoots wide-angle footage and provides a perspective that "really wasn't possible before," says IDC research director Chris Chute.

Stills from the 5-megapixel camera are underwhelming, but the high-def video is crystal clear.

Price: $200
