Apple Watch users have requested that a functional camera be added ever since the first generation was released, and thanks to Wristcam, this has now become a reality. This Apple-certified accessory adds two Sony-sourced camera sensors, a 2MP ‘self-facing’ camera capable of recording 1080p video and an 8MP ‘world-facing’ camera that can take 4K video – onto special bands. Fire up the Wristcam app on your Watch to use the cameras for live streaming or to simply use as a live viewfinder to capture images / video or sharing media.

The company claims all-day battery life and connects via Wi-Fi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) as well as over Bluetooth 5.0. As for storage, there is 8GB built-in, and unlimited cloud storage, though they did not mention if there is going to be a monthly subscription cost for going over certain limits. It’s compatible with all Apple Watch models (Series 1-6) and set to retail for $299 in four colors when released next Spring.
