Wristcam just added video calling to the Apple Watch, and it works both Watch-to-Watch and Watch-to-iPhone using the company’s free app. For those who don’t know what Wristcam is, it’s basically a special band that features 8-megapixel world-facing and 2-megapixel self-facing cameras to let you capture 4K photo and 1080p video directly from your Apple Watch.
That’s not all, Wristcam also supports hands-free control through customizable voice commands like “Hey Siri, snap a selfie”. It’s compatible over WiFi or Bluetooth, and since Wristcam is water resistant, you’ll easily be able to capture underwater photos as well as videos. The internal storage is large enough to store up to 2000 photos or 1-hour of video. Available now in black or gray colors, priced at $299.
