Did you know ? There is an accessory for Apple Watch which adds to the famous Apple connected watch a photo sensor of 8 megapixel. I named the Wristcam. The device quickly won over critics with its practicality and compatibility, taking the form of a bracelet to be attached to all currently existing sizes (38, 40, 41, 42, 44 or 45 mm).
With this wearable, the user can capture up to 2,000 photos or an hour of video. Even better: the device being certified IP68, it is able to resist water and so there is no need to take it off when taking a shower or going swimming. 8 GB of storage is included for recorded files, with an announced autonomy of one day but of course this figure will depend on the use of each one.
Your meetings on your wrist
In a press release just published, the manufacturers of the wrist camera have just announced a major new feature: video calls. The owners of the bracelet will now be able to converse with their contacts as they would FaceTime on their iPhone, sharing their best smile in real time. To access this update, however, it is necessary to complete a form accessible at this address. Your name and e-mail address will be requested there.
Also good to know: by looking at the details of this improvement, we see that it uses an in-house app that will ask your interlocutor to also be equipped with a Wristcam and the same service -owner- installed. Forget any exchange via Google Meet, WhatsApp, Signal, Slack, Telegram or any other third-party platform.
Price and availability
With a price around 300 euro, this specificity may not help Wristcam’s business. Too bad, because the solution is promising, but it’s hard to imagine all your repertoire paying this sum just to save you from taking your iPhone out of your pocket.
The Wristcam is available in gray or black, and it is possible to pay in twelve installments with Affirm. In the package are also provided a charging cable with its wall adapter and two sizes of bracelets. A green edition, only available in a few copies, is also sold for around 380 euros.
