An action camera
For those of us who enjoy extreme sports, being able to record your experiences is a must. One option is to buy a camera which you can strap on as a headband, but if you prefer handheld options, Sony's Action Cam is worth considering.
The Action Cam comes with casing that protects the gadget from water, sand and grime, and records in HD at up to 120 frames per second. Built-in Wi-Fi lets you share your footage on the go, and it comes with a hands-free option.
The camcorder comes with a price tag of £259 ($397)
