Want a camera that records for over 3 hours. Wanted a camera for on the cycle, more for safety than anything really due to idiots in cars, but thought it’d be good for wildlife, scenery etc too. Decided to opt for this cos despite it being dearer it records for a lot longer than most and often i ride for over 3 hours. It’s a very nice looking camera, and seems to be well constructed, downsides are the broken english instructions in the booklet and on the recommended home 7 app, that controls the settings on the camera. I currently can’t playback videos successfully on the app, but it’s easy enough to download them to the pc and play them there. Once you’ve figured out the best program to use for the file format anyway. Only used to twice so far on the bike, but impressed with the quality of the footage. There’s no accessories included so you’ll need to buy what you require, i bought a handlebar attachment that cos £12 from amazon, which works perfectly. This is the bracket i purchased:https://www.

Pretty happy with this camera. Once you get the hang of the very simple controls, it operates as expected. The app (home7) for wifi connectivity does it’s job and helps when fitting the camera at the correct viewing angle. For mounting onto a motorcycle helmet, i used a 1/4 inch mount adapter so that i can use all my gopro mounts. Although it would be easier to mount it sideways, you then get a very narrow field of view, so i used a reach-out gopro adapter. This set up allows a little bit of clearance between helmet as well as the ability to adjust all angles (up, down, left, right and tilt). It’s stable and allows me to focus the camera according to my riding position.

I bought this specifically for its long battery life, and it hasn’t disappointed. Video quality is excellent, but be aware that it will break videos up into 5-minute segments and the h. 264 video format is not widely supported. The alternative is mp4 which needs twice the space, but in practice there’s plenty of storage for both. Feel free to video your gopro-owning friends as their battery runs out at the crucial moment :-).
Superb little camera, just what i was looking for. . i debated and researched for a long time before committing money to purchasing a camera to use on my motorbike. The clincher for me was the long battery life on the warrior g1, i didn’t need the additional features on the g2. I have just used it seriously on a week long trip to belgium, from the uk, and it is superb. A little confusing at first with the instructions, maybe that was just me being a bit thick, but now i have a good understanding of the product it is superb. I have it mounted on my handlebars, i may get a head mount for my helmet but i’m happy with it the way it is for now. I would recommend this product and have added a youtube video taken at eurotunnel. It’s very stable and counters shake very well.
I’m still assessing this, but so far it’s easily as good as my gopro, and a lot less wind interference when it’s on my helmet.

The camera was bigger than i expected, its not as small os other bullet helmet cams. I use if for cycling to work but have been a bit disappointed in the battery life, the major attraction was that they claimed it could do up to 7 hrs, but i’ve found you’re lucky if you get 2. 5hrs, which isn’t any better than many other action cams. The instructions are not that clear, i think they have been badly translated and don’t really cover how different setup may affect the battery life. Also the camera can’t be switched off, it just has ‘on’ and ‘standby’, which seems to use battery. Next time i’d probably just go for a cheaper bullet cam as they are smaller so fit onto a bicycle helmet better and they’re cheap to replace.
