Taking advantage of the lens' wide 100 degree field of view, available accessories make it easy to clip, hang or mount the video cam to a shirt, from a necklace or to a backpack. Vibrant color covers are also available to add a splash of personality and doubles as a protective layer. If users need a more rugged cover solution they can choose the rugged waterproof case, which is IPX-8 rated and usable in water up to 60 meters deep, perfect to keep the video cam safe when snorkeling or conquering a sand dune in a 4x4.
Looxcie 3 is available starting at $99.99 for the camera. For $149.99, the Looxcie 3 social pack comes with eight accessories: the rotating social clip, two color covers, two lanyards, universal stand with sticky pad, ball cap clip and tripod mount.
