About Muvi:

Muvi is just one of many exciting sub-brands from the global lifestyle consumer electronics company, Veho.

This portrait style form factor allows it to be much more diverse in its application, so not only can it be used as an action camera, it is commonly used as a personal security and surveillance device.

In 2014, Veho announce the Muvi K-Series range of action cameras that introduced a new smaller form factor that measures only 6cm X 4cm X 2.3cm and also features built-in Wi-Fi, allowing consumers to connect to their smartphone via iOS or Android APP. The new K-Series also features new powerful, removable and rechargeable battery and a detachable LCD screen included in most Muvi K-Series bundles.
