Go Pro 4 Silver Video Settings

I have a Hero 4 Silver that I am planning to use with a Karma Grip.

I will mainly be filming people doing different activites outside.

I have tried a couple of tests with different video settings but am not sure which to use.

1080p at 60 fps looked the best IMO. I also tried 4k at 15 fps and 2.7k at 30 fps - both of these looked choppy
and not as smooth for some reason. This will only be displayed on an HD TV and YouTube.

Is there any reason to shoot above 1080p in my case? Thanks for any input on this!
