A smart remote that states it is compatible with hero 4 and below. Will this work with a hero 5?

I recently bought a gopro remote which i thought was compatible with a hero 5. It only states on the box its compatible with Hero 4 and below.

 

Firstly, will it work? Secondly -in using a older version do i loose particular functions?

I haven't opened the box and dont really want if its not going to work. Should i return? I have seen a few posts about connecting/pairing etc. I am not overly techy, will this be difficult with an older version?

 

Thanks in advance.

Which one do you have? Might be just an older box..

GoPro websites states it's compatible with Hero6 as well (https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/smart-remote/ARMTE-002.html).

 

If ou want to be save look for a box which has this compatibility statement as the remotes firmware can't be up updated.

How can I tell the: firmware? The box states hero 4. In assuming it's an older this and older version.
