GoPro officially announced plans for a new entry-level model in their lineup of action cams. Appropriately named HERO+, the camera adds some much needed features to the HERO model including 1080p video at 60fps, built-in Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. Those are luxuries most HERO owners would love to have, but the “plus” will cost an extra $70 more than the $129 basic model.

Releasing on October 4th, the $199 HERO+ is pretty much the same as the $299 HERO+LCD except without a touch display — a feature that’s extremely practical but not in everyone’s budget. In addition to the features above, the HERO+ can also be connected to GoPro’s mobile app to use tools such as Trim & Share to edit and share clips on social media platforms.

The HERO+ also includes ultra wide field-of-view, time lapse and 5 photos-per-second Burst modes, and an 8 megapixel camera for still images (an improvement over the HERO with only a 5MP camera).

But is $199 still too expensive for an “entry level action cam?” Not if you consider the $299 HERO+LCD is also classified by GoPro as entry level. One thing is certain though, if the basic $129 HERO had all the features of the HERO+ retailers wouldn’t be able to keep them on the shelves. Read on for GoPro’s featured specs.

Here are the features of the HERO+:

  • Stunning and immersive 1080p60 and 720p60 video
