Garmin VIRB 360

I just read that Garmin is coming out with a new Camera called the Garmin VIRB 360. Looks like it’s going to have some neat features like 5.7k/30fps resolution and 4 built in microphones. That’s huge as we know the sound capture on what’s out there now is OK at best. One thing I saw on the website is that it can constantly record for more than 1 hour on 1 charge. What does that actually mean? I wish these times were longer. I am not sure what the price point will be, but I’m sure it’s not for the budget minded folks.
