    Has anyone bought one of these, and if so, how do you rate it?

    Looks quite cheap, and I've seen similar ones, if not exactly the same, in places like Aldi/Lidl....

    Particularly interested to know if it comes with a fitting kit for a helmet, and any idea of battery life?

    It is the ACT3k. I have one (I think). I bought the ACT2k version a couple of years ago. It stopped working from the battery earlier this year. I was getting all the boxes and bits together ready to throw it away when I read the receipt and found Decathlon had a 2 year replacement guarantee so I took it back and swapped it. I was offered my money back, I did think about taking that and getting a Muvi, but I like the waterproof feature.
    I don't think I have posted any videos from the new one.
