Multiple Apps are being developed to work with the TORQUE HD Video Goggle.

The Video Goggle is easy to operate and has 4 modes – a HD 1080P Video Mode (1920×1080) at 30 frames per second, a High Action HD 720P video mode (1280×720) at 60 frames per second, a 12.0MP (4000×3000) camera mode, and a continuous Photo Mode.  Control of the Video Goggle can be either through the wireless remote control feature or through the buttons on the side of the strap.

The TORQUE HD Video Goggle can hold a Micro SDHC Card up to 32 GB which records thousands of photos or hours of HD video. Files may be downloaded to a computer through the High Speed USB cable provided or through a Micro SDHC card.

Another feature of the TORQUE HD Video Goggle is an adjustable camera lens housing which can pivot upwards to 30 degrees to adjust for different rider styles.

The TORQUE HD Video Goggle comes fully equipped and ready to use with a rechargeable battery, MicroSDHC card 4GB, USB and RCA cables, tear sheets, nose guard, wall mount plug, replaceable face foam, Micro Fiber bag, and extra replacement straps.  No extra mounts are required to attach the camera to a helmet or a goggle as with mountable cameras.  The Torque HD Video Goggle is water resistant and fits most helmets.

The Camera operates on a rechargeable Lithium Battery with an estimated battery performance of 1.5-2 hours of HD video depending on modes and use patterns. The battery can be replaced easily without tools to increase the recording time.
