Always wanted to make video calls with your Apple Watch? Wristcam has made it a reality. That’s right, it makes use of the all-new WristcamOS, which extends the accessory’s camera capabilities. When activated, you’ll be able to make Watch-to-Watch as well as Watch-to-iPhone video calls using Wristcam’s free app, although users must request early access to enable it now.
Just for the record, Wristcam is fully capable of making voice calls straight out of the box, but video calls requires this new SDK. If you don’t have one, and wonder if it’s worth the money, the $299 Wristcam does add an 8-megapixel world-facing camera as well as a 2-megapixel self-facing shooter that allow you to capture 4K photos or 1080p videos. You won’t however be finding any sort of video calling on this TAG Heuer Super Mario Bros. smartwatch.
