Muvi Chest Harness Mount - For Veho Muvi
Perfect for runners, cyclists and boarders, this chest mount easily wraps around the shoulders and waist to offer a secure platform for the camera to sit in the middle of the chest. The strapping is easily adjustable so you get a tight fit, which is mandatory, as the Muvi K2 camera tends to bounce around a lot due to its weight. Even with the chest harness mount fully tightened, we still experienced some movement on a downhill mountain bike ride, meaning a helmet mount could be better for the really bumpy stuff.

Muvi Headband Mount - For Veho Muvi
This handy little mount is essential for anyone wanting to record an activity that requires constant use of the hands and arms. Our test involved a lot of surfing and this accessory was perfect, snugly fitting over the top of a neoprene wetsuit hood with ease. The rubberised interior lining of the head strap also means the mount stays firmly in place, which is great for getting beautifully stable shots. Again, the Muvi K2's weight comes into play and can get a bit tiresome during long recording sessions and it looks utterly ridiculous when you paddle out with a camera strapped to your head.

Muvi Universal Palm Strap Mount - For Veho Muvi
This mini-filming pole is one of the best we've encountered, as it features an elasticated hand strap and ergonomic grip that keeps the thing practically glued to your hand. We even managed to take it out surfing, an activity that requires a lot of hand action, especially during the 'pop-up' movement. The grip gets in the way and bashes the board a bit but once up, it feels secure enough to hold and pan even in heavy waves. Unfortunately, this model doesn't float but it will be great for gigs, snowboarding and any other event that requires a bit of dynamic yet stable movement in the shot.

Scuba Diving Mount
Some of the best footage and photos taken on a GoPro come from under the sea, but to really capture that shark selfie, you need a fully equipped mount. This one has sturdy adjustable handles connected by a metal pole and special attachments for lighting.

One of the coolest, yet vainest mounts we’ve come across, the CU2 pack lets you, hands-free, record your life from a third-person view. The included backpack acts as a harness for the mount, connecting the aluminium poles that hold the GoPro to a solid plate tucked away in the bag. It’s 100% waterproof and can be used with other action cams with a extra mount.

Another simple, yet ridiculously useful mount, this time that attaches to your wrist.

The adjustable strap also means you can fit the mount over bulky gloves, a must if you’re off skiing.
