Sometimes it isn’t possible to handhold your GoPro. If you need your hands to perform your sport, you need a GoPro wrist mount. And if dropping your GoPro could result in it sinking to the bottom of the ocean, you need a GoPro wrist strap.
We have compiled the seven best GoPro wrist straps and mounts for your GoPro camera. Whether you are going scuba diving, cycling, mountaineering, or racing, we’ve got it all! Here are our picks to keep your GoPro filming and prevent loss during your adventures.
We’ve organized this guide into three sections. The first two sections cover the best GoPro wrist mounts and straps.
Then we cover common questions, including the best applications for wrist-mounted cameras.
Let’s get started!
4 GoPro Wrist Mounts
The following wrist mounts are best in class for GoPro cameras.
1. GoPro Wrist Mount
The 360-degree GoPro wrist mount is extra sturdy for capturing on-the-go videos. The 360-degree features mean you have an ultra-immersive wide range of views for your camera.
Sleek and lightweight at 2.99 ounces, the mount is exceptionally tenacious for its size.
It features high-tempered steel and polyester for extra protection and grip. GoPro promises to replace the mount if your initial one fails.
The mount is ideal for cycling, swimming, and extreme sports that pack a ton of grit. Ensure you check out the toggling feature and flip between selfie and back camera POV.
Compatible with all the latest GoPro cameras, this might be the best mount for the best videographer – you.
2. Surewo Wrist Mount
Surewo offers an easy-to-rotate Surewo GoPro wrist mount that offers something different.
Surewo promises excellent mounting with an easy-to-install mount.
The mount features a four-buckle system that straps onto your wrist, or you can mount it on almost any surface. And it only weighs 2.08 ounces. Almost nothing when compared to the weight of a GoPro.
Also, the skin-friendly breathable cloth work absorbs sweat and does not add extra pressure to your wrist.
Surewo wrist mount is an action-based mount for capturing high-speed targets. Even better, once you lock it in place, it does not wobble out of position unless you readjust it.
Surewo devices are compatible with a vast range of action cameras and GoPro cameras from Hero5 to Hero10.
3. Telesin Upgraded GoPro Strap
The new Telesin GoPro mount and strap are perfect for sea lovers. Its ergonomic design ensures it’s comfortable around your wrist. You also get a hands-free experience from the same mount.
The 12″ strap features a 60-degree rotary shooting direction for different perspectives for your shots. You’ll need to apply some extra force to rotate the strap. It has a lock button for securing your desired shooting angle.
Compatible with a wide range of cameras from GoPro, Akaso, Insta360, Campark, and more. Tested in aquatic environments, you can now capture better underwater shots.
4. ParaPace Mount
No mount comes close to blending aesthetics and functionality as the ParaPace mount and strap. It is a slide-on glove mount with the camera mounted on your upper palm.
The glove’s 360 rotary options mean you can change footage POV as you would turn your wrist. Simple design yet offers unparalleled performance.
ParaPlace is an ideal cycler and mountaineer mount if your hands already have too much going on.
3 GoPro Wrist Straps
GoPro wrist straps enable you to appreciate the beauty of nature and record it hassle-free. Simply adding a basic wrist strap can make the difference of bringing your camera home at the end of the day.
And some include floatation features to keep your camera from being lost at sea.
The best straps to include in your videography arsenal are:
1. Mudder Floatation Wrist Strap
GoPro cameras are waterproof up to 33 feet in depth. However, the tiny cameras do not float. Some deep-sea divers learn this the hard way.
When looking for the ultimate sea shooting experience, look no further than the Mudder floatation wrist strap. The lightweight device attaches to your wrist snugly.
Mudder is a foam-filled neoprene wrist lanyard with a bright yellow hue. The bright color makes it easy to spot on the water.
The only downside is that it supports up to 7 ounces of camera weight. However, buoyancy levels vary from fresh to seawater. Some users have reported the wrist strap holding up to 9 ounces of GoPro camera weight.
2. Avorast Adjustable Wrist Strap
The Avorast hand wrist strap is best for attaching cameras, phones, and other gadgets you use in precarious places to get the perfect shot.
The attach-detach function allows you to attach your USB and other gadgets easily.
Just remember to slide the lanyard over your wrist, please. If you forget to put the strap around your wrist, it won’t help when you drop it.
3. GoPro Sleeve With Lanyard
The GoPro Sleeve with lanyard is a sleek adjustable fixture with a quick clip release for protecting your GoPro camera.
An adjustable lanyard keeps your camera action ready. When you are not using the camera, slide the lanyard into your pocket or wear it as a fancy necklace. There are numerous colors available.
I like the simplicity of this strap and sleeve. It isn’t really suitable for extreme sports – the silicone will tear. But this simple accessory allows you to use your GoPro as a point and shoot camera.
Since the sleeve is GoPro manufactured, it is compatible with Hero9 and Hero10 cameras.

FAQs About Wrist Straps and Mounts
When Should I Use a Camera Wrist Mount?
Wrist-mounted cameras aren’t as convenient as a selfie stick. They require you to straight arm for decent footage. And you’ll get a higher proportion of unusable video.
- But for settings where you need to have your hands free (water skiing, snow skiing, motorcycle, snorkeling, and rock climbing) a wrist-mounted camera is great.
- And a wrist strap comes in handy whenever you’re in a setting where you could drop (and lose) your camera. This can be almost any sport. And even for out-the-window shots in a moving vehicle. The wrist strap acts as a tether, preventing loss.
Are GoPro wrist straps and mounts compatible with other cameras?
It’s good to confirm before purchase if these mounts will work with your specific camera model.
What can I use the straps for?
The primary function is to safeguard your camera against loss and drops. The GoPro mounts are also great for filming POV footage.
