Re: GoPro App for Garmin Smartwatches

Comon GoPro support!  Where are you at?!?  There is a ton of interest in this.  As evidence, here's forums from Garmin and a youtube video for a person who did it, tho with bugs and not across all the Garmin devices we'd all like (Fenix 5X here).  My Garmin is on me all the time - paddleboarding, surfing, diving, motorcycling, hiking, you get the point.  Make us an app PLEASE!!

"Camera Remote" app from Garmin Connect store:

I wanted a more convenient way to control my GoPro Session 4 action camera from my Garmin Vivoactive HR fitness tracker. So, I downloaded the developer tools...

Yes to a connectivity with major watch models like the Garmin Fenix.

Having GPS matching tool who can crossfind coordinates points between the 2 devices to syncronize data with specific section of the footage would be amazing to review the conditions at that time where the data has been captured!

Then be able to share that footage with real time advanced data; that would be awesome.
