The Activeon CX is a better, more affordable GoPro alternative

Record your adventures in 1080p HD for under $40.

From carving up fresh snow to more sedate activities, we all like to keep a record of our adventures. While you may not have $500 to drop on a GoPro, the Activeon CX 1080p WiFi Action Camera offers most of the same features for a fraction of the price. In fact, it’s now just $43 at the Popular Science Shop—and use code GIFTSHOP15 for an extra 15 percent off.

This impressive little camcorder lets you record your adventures in full 1080p HD. The bright F/2.0 lens captures crisp footage, and you can easily start and stop recording with one hand. There are four field-of-view settings to choose from, and you can line up each shot on the two-inch rear display.

Thanks to built-in WiFi, the Activeon can also connect to your phone. The companion app offers a raft of settings, and you can start recording remotely. This is particularly useful when you’re trying to be your own camera operator. Along with regular video, you can capture beautiful timelapses and long exposures. Plus, the Activeon comes with a waterproof housing that can survive underwater to a depth of 196 feet.

Worth $99.99, the Activeon is now just $43. And don’t forget to use code GIFTSHOP15 for an additional 15 percent off at checkout.
