Wristcam, a San Mateo, California-based company has introduced a new camera unit for the Apple Watch. Now you can get an Apple Watch band featuring a camera that integrates with your watch.
The company received FCC approval for their band today.
Wristcam opens up new possibilities of what you can do with
a wearable and brings you a radical new way to share in real-time straight from the wrist.
There are two different size bands that you can choose from for your watch.
You can easily swap out the original Apple Watch band with the Wristcam band.Slide the camera-side of Wristcam band into the top of your Apple Watch until you feel/hear a small click and do the same for the other side.
Wristcam comes with a dedicated Apple Watch app that can be downloaded using a QR code. The app has several complications that allow you to use the Wristcam face as well as easy snap controls right on your Watch.
You can swipe through the controls and choose between snapping a photo, recording videos and sending messages.
Charging the band is via a simple charging cable and it comes as an accessory with the Wristcam band.
Checking the battery status of the camera has been integrated directly into the app and you can easily check it directly from your Apple Watch.
The new Apple Watch accessory from Wristcam comes with a one-year warranty and pricing starts at $299. January deliveries are sold out and the company is currently taking deliveries for February.
The Apple Watch band has some valuable real estate and will become the focus for change as we move forward. Mudra band launched an accessory that allowed users to use gesture control on the Apple Watch.
We have seen numerous Apple patents that focus on the band and attempt to increase the Apple Watch value proposition by evaluating numerous sensors that can be attached to the band.
