Both the INNOVV K3 and the Thinkware M1 fall under the category of premium motorcycle dash cams. Both are screenless, weather resistant, and are equipped with built-in Wi-Fi and a free mobile app.
In terms of recording footage - which is the main purpose of having a dash cam - the INNOVV K3 works as if it’s not on the premium side. Although both the K3 and M1 are equipped with Full HD and Sony image sensors, the quality and performance of the K3 during daylight and night are quite off. The video becomes red-tinged on occasion and in certain lighting conditions, making the resolution settings be viewed as a constraint. Unfortunately, these can’t be changed, so the poor image quality is something that you have to deal with for a long time - if the K3 lasts.
Overall, we think that the INNOVV K3 is complicatedly built. The data display, the GPS inaccuracy (which can also cause danger), plus the media and downloading concerns are time consuming and inconvenient.
On the other hand, there’s the user-friendly and reliable Thinkware M1. Sure, the Thinkware M1 doesn’t have the Parking Mode feature that the INNOVV K3 has - but honestly, we don’t think that feature is necessary considering the small battery of motorcycles.
The Thinkware M1 has exactly what motorcycle drivers need - high quality footage with Super Night Vision 2.0, Image Stabilization to ensure smoothness and clarity of recordings, plus the Memory Partition feature to maximize your dash cam’s storage capacity. The app and Wi-Fi is also readily available and easy to use, making the experience even more convenient.
Thinkware has been in the industry for decades, so the quality of dash cams are guaranteed to be tried and tested. Surprisingly, despite its notable features beating the K3, the Thinkware M1 is slightly more affordable than the INNOVV K3 dash cam, which seals this dash cam review.
