In the early days of smartwatch, some companies are often "cornered" about the camera on the watch, just as in the first Gear line of Samsung. After this, almost no smartwatch had a camera anymore. However, if you are using an Apple Watch, you can add a camera to your watch.

After nearly four years of development, the special camera strap for the Apple Watch has reached the completion stage. The wristcam has an 8 megapixel camera that can record 1080p video and capture photos at 4K resolution and a 2 megapixel camera for selfies. The company says you can also use it as a video walkie-talkie with real-time streaming.

Below are some photos taken from Wristcam:

The wristcam shows the image on the Apple Watch screen but has its own battery, the company says can last all day. You can take photos and videos with just pressing a button on the strap, and it will automatically sync photos with your iPhone when you charge the strap on the magnetic charging dock.

The device has 8GB of memory to store photos and videos. The camera connects to Apple Watch via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and to iPhone via Bluetooth 4.2, 5.0 and Wi-Fi.

The Wristcam strap weighs 23 grams, is about half the weight of the lightest Apple Watch and comes in interchangeable colors, including noir, blanc, gray, rose and sage. Both cameras have LEDs that light up when taking pictures or recording videos, so you can see clearly when the device is in photo capture mode.

According to CEO Ari Roisman, Wristcam can take up to 20 seconds to share photos directly from the Watch via Bluetooth, but will sync directly with the connected iPhone. The ability to share photos directly from Watch won't be available at launch but in a future update, Roisman told The Verge site.

Roisman told The Verge that the company is focusing on shipping to customers who supported the initial crowdfunding campaign, which have already been funded 10,000 products.

Roisman said the long delays stem from design challenges, but customers who have already attached the company should receive their Wristcam before the holiday. Since four years have passed, the company says it has refunded any early capital contributors who want to get their money back.

Wristcam is taking pre-orders on the website for $299 USD. The company says the first products of this order will ship in March 2021.
