Driven by strong demand for its wearable cameras across Europe and Asia, GoPro posted $419.9m in revenue, which is 71% more than the $244m it generated in Q2 2014.

The company said that it sold its products over 40,000 stores worldwide and shipments of point-of-purchase displays increased by over 40%.

The company highlighted that the international sale of its products contributed to more than 50% of Q2 revenue, with combined revenue generated from EMEA and APAC increasing by 126% year-over-year.

China was named one of the company’s top ten revenue-generating countries.

In Europe alone, the revenue increased to $137.2m from $67m in Q2 2014, and in the Americas GoPro saw revenue surge by 39% to $212.3m.

In Q2 2015, the company introduced the waterproof HERO4 Session, which is 50% smaller and 40% lighter than other HERO4 cameras, along with an entry-level camera that features a rear facing LCD screen.

The company also announced that GoPro Mobile App was downloaded 2.5 million times in Q2 2015, and it saw a 100% surge in installation of GoPro Studio, exceeding 1.7 million installs.
