DJI Osmo Action or GoPro Hero 7

I’m looking to buy an action cam to replace the cheap Chinese one I have now (Aukey AC-LC2). My main camera is a Osmo Pocket and I do mainly martial arts video for a friend, so I want 4K60. With the GoPro Hero 9 release it pushed the Hero 7 to the same price as the DJI Osmo Action at $250. Which is the best for just all around recording as a secondary to my Osmo Pocket. 
 

Thanks in advanced!

disclaimer: My only action cam experience is with both GoPro Sessions.

 

I think the DJI Osmo action is the way to go here. I remember watching the stabilization comparisons between the Osmo and whatever the best GoPro had to offer at the time and the Osmo (to my eye anyway) looked a touch more stable. The image quality was also as good or better with the DJI, which makes sense due to their acquisition of Hasselblad. I didn't know the Osmo dropped to $250, at that price it seems like a no brainer to me unless the Hero 9 is dramatically better in some way. It seems to me that GoPro is "iterating" cameras every year, but not really pushing the boundaries of what the outgoing model already did. Looking at their website, the only thing that I think the Hero 9 does better is having interchangeable lenses, but the 9 only has one lens option and it's even wider than stock (some may be into that but personally I would also want a tighter option). So yeah if it was my money, I'd buy the Osmo.
