The 6 Best Wearable Gimbals
This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Gimbals are designed to stabilize cameras when filming to eliminate shaking, which is why they are used on every professional movie set. These wearable models are made to be used with action cams, and considering the typical use for a GoPro, SJCam, or similar is recording extreme sports or two-wheeled adventures from a first person point of view, it is no wonder they are considered indispensable.

Since wearable gimbals are designed to be used with action cameras, we thought it prudent to include some very durable models that are water resistant, such as the FeiyuTech WG2X and Removu S1. The FeiyuTech WG2 is even fully waterproof and can withstand brief periods of immersion, so if you plan on recording paddleboarding adventures, using it while snowboarding, or expect you may often get caught in heavy downpours, it is your best option. Unfortunately, its image stabilization capabilities, while decent, aren't as good as the more recently released FeiyuTech WG2X. If you want the ability to view your recordings on an external screen as they are happening, the Zhiyun Rider-M and Evo SS can provide that, though there are reports of the latter being damaged by just a few drops of sweat. When it comes to versatility, it is hard to beat the Removu S1, as it can be handheld, tripod mounted, or worn, and comes with most of the necessary equipment for all of those usage styles.
