Hero 7 Black battery

I have been planning a trip to scuba dive and wanted to get my first GoPro. Ive been looking at getting the Hero 7 Black and I’ve read that the battery life depends on various things. I was wondering if the batteries are waterproof and if you can change the batteries while underwater? Just a curious question cause like I said I’m not sure how the batteries are replaced so thought I would ask before I buy one.

Hi @jt20

 

So long as all camera doors are closed, the HERO7 cameras are waterproof down to 10m (33ft) without a housing. 

That being said you cannot change batteries while underwater.

The Super Suit housing, enables the use of your camera to as deep as 60m.

 

Thanks!
