I was wonderng if there is any kind of audio alert to signal low battery on the 7 Black. I will be doing long recordings (3-4 hours at least) using a head strap camera mount and it wouild be nice to know when it is close to time to change out the battery. As I will be kayaking an exteral power source isn't going to work.

The camera only gives a beeping sound when the battery has run out then turns itself off.
You may refer to this link HERO7 Battery Information to see estimate continuous recording time.
Turning voice control/ GPS/ Wi-Fi off and/or lowering the LCD brightness can also help in conserving the battery.
Also, it is best to use a recommended charger.

Yeah, testing shows I can get almost, if not, 2 hours with everything turned off. That's fine with me. I'll just swap batteries at 1 hour, 45 minutes just to be safe. An alert would have been nice though. Thanks for the reply!

@yakpacker, a banner will pop up on the screen to let you know that the battery is already running low. However, there will be no corresponding audio alert in the camera when that happens. I appreciate the feedback. I'll pass this information along to the team. You may also submit the suggestion here.
