The TomTom Bandit ably addresses several pain points with other action cams thanks to its quick mobile editing, versatile mounting system and removable battery.

The Bandit doesn't just shoot great video clips, it turns them into action movies too.

An action cam that takes you from shoot to share in a shake

The TomTom Bandit is an excellent alternative to GoPro and others in the category thanks to its quick mobile editing, versatile mounting system, removable battery and its numerous shooting options. The video quality is very good, too, but if that is your main concern, the GoPro Hero4 Silver and Sony Action Cam X1000V at around the $400 mark are better choices and there are other cameras that are on par with it for less money.

Worthy GoPro competitor

from Wareable

In general the quality is comparable to a mid-range smartphone, at least in good lighting conditions, so if you're not going to mount these photos on your wall then the device will serve you well.

In general the quality is comparable to a mid-range smartphone, at least in good lighting conditions, so if you're not going to mount these photos on your wall then the device will serve you well.

The images you can take can be up to 16-megapixels in size and there's the option of a burst mode that snaps 10 pictures in a second — you might find that suits some stunts better than HD video. The facility is there if you need it, but no one's really buying an action camera for its photo-taking prowess.

Not only does the Bandit allow you to shoot crisp 4K video and take 16 megapixel images, but it also allows you to transfer your content using the Batt-Stick, which doesn’t require any cables whatsoever. This is something we’ve never seen on an action camera before, so TomTom get some brownie points for creativity here. It includes a full size USB, LED charge status lights and houses your micro SD card. Plus, you can conveniently charge your battery and transfer your content at the same time – well done TomTom!

A capable and fun action camera, but you need to buy the accessories

from Android Police

Overall, though, I'd happily buy the Bandit if I was upgraded to the premium version, that includes nearly all OEM accessories, for free.

Overall, though, I'd happily buy the Bandit if I was upgraded to the premium version, that includes nearly all OEM accessories, for free. In the real world, though, it costs an extra $100 (which is much cheaper than buying each separately, for what that's worth). If the price comes down, you will definitely want to think about getting it. Likewise, if the drawbacks on the Bandit just don't matter for how you want to use it, then you may really love it.

It's a good device and worth looking at

from Stuff

It's a good camera, but I don't think it has enough tricks to put it ahead of the various GoPro options. The Bandit is also priced similarly to its competitors which means it's taking them head on, which is a tough challenge. However, it is a good device and worth looking at if you are... More

It's a good camera, but I don't think it has enough tricks to put it ahead of the various GoPro options. The Bandit is also priced similarly to its competitors which means it's taking them head on, which is a tough challenge. However, it is a good device and worth looking at if you are considering buying an action camera and don't fancy any of the GoPro options.

We’re going to stick our neck out here and say that the TomTom Bandit offers the best balance of features and filming quality in today’s market. OK, there are better options for high-res shooting (the Hero4 Black being the top dog), but there’s plenty more to shout about here – not least, that fun and user-friendly Create A Story feature. And while it’s strongly recommended that you buy the aforementioned Dive lens cover – especially if you participate in watersports – the Bandit also represents great value for money.

Action cameras are about capturing and sharing the moment and while many enable you to record at incredible quality few enable you to so easily share that footage without spending time at a computer editing.

The video quality is excellent, showing plenty of detail well saturated colour, and the Bandit copes well with changes in exposure. The three hours of recording time at 1080p at 30fps means that this small camera won't run out of steam before you do, and USB charging and the availability of additional battery packs means you can easily carry a reserve if needed.

Capture action the easy

from Pocket-lint

Naturally, if you're after even better quality you'll have to look elsewhere and be prepared to pay for it. But as it stands, the TomTom Bandit offers bags of innovation and is well worth considering, especially if you're looking for a convenient user-friendly approach and an excellent app.

TomTom may be a bit late to the action-camera party, but the Bandit is a strong debut. It's solidly constructed, has well thought-out functions, and shoots good footage. There's no particular feature that will make it a clear choice over a GoPro Hero4 Black. In particular, as the latter will shoot 4K at 30fps, the Bandit is a little behind on video formats. But its GPS and heart-rate monitor connectivity give it the edge for sports enthusiasts.
