GoPro Session acting up

I just bought the GoPro Session, and now everytime I turn on the GoPro to look through the app, the GoPro either turns off by itself or freezes. It doesn't not allow me to connect with my phone and like I mentioned, it keeps turning off by itself. It froze on me once and I held the red button for 11 seconds and it unfroze and turned off. But, that did not solve the issue in which it keeps turning off when I try to set it up to preview on my phone and to record.

Re: GoPro Session acting up

I recently had this also with my GoPro. It usually happens when WiFi is enabled, but what SD card do you use? I have a SanDisk..
