A built-in 30mm speaker allows users to use the NOW CAM to make calls and listen to music on the go without hauling around another item. The speaker is louder than a typical cell phone speaker.

When recording users control the mode with a dial on the top and shoot using a 120-degree wide-angle lens that captures more of the experience than a typical iPhone or Android camera.

ZAGG NOW CAM Waterproof case

For more active and adventurous users, there is a $29.99 NOW CAM waterproof case that seals the camera up for trips into the water. This case protects the NOW CAM for 30 minutes in six feet of water. The case is polycarbonate to absorb shock and the lens cover is glass, to resist scratches. This case includes a mounting magnet to attach to the bar mount or to any metal surface.

A $19.99 NOW CAM Bar Mount can attach to bikes, strollers and backpacks accommodating bars from 18mm to 38mm in diameter. There is also a safety tether in case a crash or shock is strong enough to make the magnet lose hold.
