5 Reasons You Should Consider Buying the TomTom Bandit Action Cam

Yes, it will help you steal people’s attention.

In 2006 the first dig­i­tal “action cam” hit the mar­ket for con­sumers. Over the past decade with the rise of social media and a surge in inter­est in out­door recre­ation, dozens of con­sumer elec­tron­ics com­pa­nies have tried to take a bite of the rel­a­tively young “action cam” mar­ket.
