It comes equipped with a high-definition visible and thermal camera, utilising FLIR’s multispectral dynamic imaging (MSX) technology. It drastically improves image quality with high-fidelity, visible-light details while providing a host of new or improved features.
It is smartwatch compatible, pairing with Apple Watch and selected Android smartwatches, offering the chance to take images or video from your smartwatch or stream live thermal imagery.
