I never use the waterproof case on my contour when mounting it on my helmet. The fact that you don't need one was one of the major selling points for me. You never see Steve Fisher (sponsored by Contour) use a case either.
I spoke to someone at Contour about this as I had the same concern as you. They more or less said it's fine to use it without as it can realistically go deeper than 1m and if it's short duration it is no issue at all.
I have the case and only use it when filming underwater or when mounted to the front of my creeker to protect it from possible impacts.
The fact that the contour is side mount, easy to use, versatile mounting options with a 360 degree adjustable lens, and can be used with an additional case to waterproof makes it superior to the Gopro, in my opinion.
*Contour if you're reading this I would love free shit for all the awesome stuff I just said about your product.
