Shaped like a gun, but it's the price that'll make you jump

from Stuff

The Contour ROAM3 is Contour’s first creation since their rise from the ashes in 2014. While the ROAM3 doesn’t have an LCD screen or Wi-Fi & Bluetooth capabilities, it has a powerful 270-degree rotatable lens (which pushes crisp 1080p video), and is waterproof up to 30 feet without a case, making it one of the most versatile cameras on the market today. Since its metal body gives it a tough and rugged feel, and its unique shape makes it aerodynamic, this is the ideal camera for you if you enjoy sports such as surfing, snorkeling or snowboarding.

Rugged and relatively cheap, but the video quality just doesn't impress

from Tom's Guide
With its clever design and low price, the Roam3 is almost inviting. The company put a lot of thought into engineering a great physical product. Unfortunately, this camera skimps too much on image quality. I suggest giving the Roam3 a pass. Contour just merged with another action-cam maker, iON. Perhaps the combined resources will enable the companies to build better image quality into future models. In the meantime, the Kodak Pixpro SP1 is your best option at this price... Full review

It seems to do pretty well considering its price tag

Designed like a hardened barrel

from Techly
This design shape is clever because it means you can mount the camera onto your helmet without a worry. The only problem is that Contour still hasn’t found a way to make the ROAM3 lightweight (it’s quite heavy for an on-the-go cam) or less clumsy to use. It is tough though with a full metal body, which is the tradeoff you make... Full review
Gizmodo

A bit underwhelmed

from Gizmodo
It seems weird that a company trying to resurrect itself amidst competition that has never been more numerous or of higher quality would chose this camera for its grand coming out party. Yeah, $200 is a decent price, but this is not how you come out guns blazing... Full review
Cnet

One of the top entry-level action cams gets even better

from Cnet
The Contour Roam3 is an excellent action cam if you don't want to worry about housings and can live without features like Wi-Fi or the ability to preview what you're about to shoot. The video quality is very good for its price, but if you need the best video, you'll want to spend more money... Full review
Whitelines

Functional design, solid construction and a fool-proof interface

from Whitelines
It’s a handy camera that – rather than competing directly with the GoPro range – fitting nicely between the basic Hero and the more advanced Hero 4 Silver. To improve it, it could do with an added layer of protection over the lens and maybe a removable battery in case you run out on the hill, but it’s great for people who want durability and ease of use – no-nonsense shred filming!..
