Not just a random accessory, the Apple-certified Wristcam is essentially an Apple Watch band that comes equipped with two Sony camera sensors. There’s a 2-megapixel ‘self-facing’ camera that can record 1080p video and a second ‘world-facing’ camera records for 8-megapixel still images as well as 4K video. Simply launch the Wristcam app on your Watch to start live streaming video or use the live viewfinder to capture images / video, browse a gallery, and share your media.
Why are there bright LEDs next to the sensors? Well, a single pulse of light is used for still images, while continuously blinking signifies that you’re recording footage. Dedicated microphones ensure you get all the sound around you and a quick capture button located beneath the world-facing camera lets you capture anything in seconds. It comes standard with 8GB of internal storage, along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. Available March 2021, priced at $299 USD.

Living with Wristcam feels a bit like having superpowers. The phone isn’t always within reach, and it’s nice to have a camera handy when going out with friends, or going on a run, ride, or hike with just an Apple Watch,” said Ari Roisman, CEO and co-founder of Wristcam.
