Contour, manufacturer of action cams that compete with the likes of the venerable GoPro, announced today the release of their new top of the line action cam, the Contour+2, replacing the Contour+.

The camera features several recording modes, including 1080p/30fps, 720p/30fps, 720p/60fps, 960p/30fps and a brand new high FPS option of 480p / 120fps for slow motion footage. The same Instant On switch as the original Contour+, which means there is no need to power the device on and then subsequently press a record button.

The camera also features a new case which makes it submersible to 60 meters. Other features that Contour believes set it apart from other cameras include:

  • The ability to tweak settings, including white balance, contrast, exposure, and sharpness
  • Bluetooth; to natively connect to a mobile phone as a viewfinder or to edit and share captured video
  • Built-in GPS to record speed, altitude, and distance mapping

We haven’t had the chance to play with one yet; but the features look very promising – however they come at a price – MSRP on this bad boy is $399.
