We Want It: Capture Your Workout on the Shimano CM-1000 Helmet Sport Camera

If you don't share your workout on Instagram, did it really happen? For FOMO-inducing posts, capture days spent cycling, surfing, or skiing with the Shimano CM-1000 sport camera ($299; shimano.com for stores). Yes, the action-cam market is oversaturated, but here are three reasons this one reigns supreme.

1. It's hassle-free.
The device is smaller and lighter than a deck of cards and waterproof (without a case) up to 10 meters.

2. It syncs seamlessly.
Using Wi-Fi, adjust camera settings, frame shots, and view live recordings via your smartphone. Biking diehards can overlay data (like heart rate and cadence) from a cycling computer on the video.

3. It's compatible with newer, safer helmets.
Following Formula One racing legend Michael Schumacher's near-fatal ski accident in late 2013, some are arguing that poorly affixed action cams compromise the integrity of a helmet. Manufacturers have taken note and integrated the mounting system into the headwear, exemplified in this Bell Super Helmet ($125; bellhelmets.com), which is lightweight and breathable, with a customizable fit.
