SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Axon has announced the release of the Axon Body 4 – its next-generation body-worn camera.

The Axon Body 4 upgrades include:

  • Bi-directional communications between the wearer and multiple viewers with access, allowing communication in real time.

  • A Watch Me button that allows the wearer to signal a call for support while displaying their location on Axon Respond. Axon Body 4 shows the wearer’s location on the Axon Respond map in real time and can start recording automatically when an officer approaches a significant location.

  • Critical alerts, such as unholstering a firearm or the arming of a TASER device. This can also be communicated to the camera and displayed in Axon Respond.

  • The option to connect to an additional point-of-view camera that can be attached to the officer’s shoulder, head, hat brim, and sunglasses to provide an additional perspective from the officer’s point of view.

  • Camera upgrades, such as improved visibility and image detail. The Axon Body 4 has a 160-degree field of view, an 18% increase from prior models. It also has a stronger 5 MP sensor for sharper details and higher resolution.

  • Improved battery life, providing over 13 hours of runtime. Rapid recharging adds 20% battery power in under 30 minutes and can be done in a patrol car while on duty.

Axon Body 4 is currently being trialed by several agencies in the U.S. and will be available for customers to begin purchasing by the second half of 2023, with shipments beginning shortly after.
