Which Action Camera for automotive?

Hi folks,

I am totally new to the action camera world, so bear with me.

As a hobby, I frequently work on my car, and I would like to record/take pictures while working on it.

The problem is that I only need a camera with a few, but essential, features:
  1. Voice command: When you have dirty hands you cannot touch the camera, so it is essential the camera has the possibility to start/stop recording or take a picture when I want to.
  2. Video Quality: HD is enough for me, I do not need 4K or more.
  3. Image Quality: 12K is more than enough
  4. Head strap because I think it is the best option, as I need free hands
Now, the GoPro Hero8 seems to have what I need and much more, which is my problem: I do not need all of those other features, so the idea of spending $300.00+ for so many features that I do no need, is not appealing. :)

I am asking for advice, if there is anything alternative I could go for. For instance, I saw you can still buy the Hero4, but I do no think it has voice command, which is essential for me.

Do you guys have any recommendation you can provide? Any other brand?

Thank you!
Alessandro
