Low price for Hero 5 black

Hi guys, I’m from Ukraine and I want to buy a new GoPro hero 5. In local shops there are two versions of cameras, one costs approximately 200€, and another almost 400€. Both cameras are being sold as “new”. However, the cheaper one has 3 months guarantee, and 400€ one has 24 months. Seller claims that both are new and never used, not a fake and so on. Like the only difference is guarantee term. Is it possible that really new GoPro is sold so cheap only because of guarantee?

Re: Low price for Hero 5 black

Hi @royalriver82058

 

Thank you for your interest in our GoPro cameras. There is actually a standard 1-year warranty for all GoPro cameras after purchase; a standard warranty of 2 years for purchases made in EU countries. In some locations, the guarantee can be extended through GoPro Plus subscription, and some retailers also offer their own extended warranty program. You might want to check further on the inclusions of the guarantee offered by your local store to make the most of your purchase. You can always test the product prior to buying it to make sure it is a fully-functional one. 

 

Here are links on warranty policy that might help:
