There was an older GoPro Hero released years ago and if you want to avoid getting that one by mistake, avoid models with a big, round, red light on the front as they can pop up in search results. They’re not much cheaper, sometimes even more expensive and aren’t as good as this new 2018 version.

It’s more expensive than its predecessor, but worth the upgrade.
