360º Video: Odd that a camera designed for sharing would not enable their 360º video to be embedded.
While this is not one of the cameras announced at the 2017 Google Street View Summit in Tokyo (10-11 May 2017), I could imagine that it is one of the 11 other cameras that did not announce, but were working on Google Street View certification, according to Google at its Summit. Based on the specs, it looks like it meets/exceeds all Google Street Mobile Ready Standards.
The Verge (24 May 2017) Garmin’s new 360-degree camera is waterproof and records 3D audio
"The thing that could set Garmin’s 360 camera apart from the competition is how it allows users to create data overlays — something the company has been doing for a while with its more traditional action cameras. The camera can measure everything from speed, altitude, and distance traveled; it can even calculate stats like hang time and jump height. It also, of course, has built-in GPS and GLONASS and is compatible with Garmin’s heart rate monitoring accessories."
"All of that data can be overlaid on the spherical video or photos, and the placement of it can be customized. Garmin calls it “augmented reality” in the VIRB 360 press release, and even if that’s not quite right, it’s still a pretty cool idea."
