Re app

The Re app available for Android and, later this year, iOS, lets you see what the camera sees. The Re connects to your mobile via Wi-Fi with some connection help from Bluetooth. You can control the camera and settings as well as transfer shots off the camera to your device for viewing and sharing.

Charge it up

The camera's internal battery is good for an hour and a half of 1080p recording. Once it's tapped out you'll need to find yourself a Micro-USB cable to charge it up again.

Tripod mount

As you may have noticed, there's a tripod mount in the base of the Re. HTC said it has a few mounts in the works, such as one for handlebars, but don't expect a full ecosystem just yet.
