Wristcam captures 1080p HD video, 4K resolution stills, supports video live-streaming, and is available in a collection of interchangeable band colors: Noir, Blanc, Gray, Rose, and Sage. With a strong emphasis on privacy, Wristcam features bright LEDs next to both self-facing and world-facing cameras to clearly indicate when a photo or video is being captured.
Wristcam can be controlled directly from the device via a singular, multi-function button. The experience comes alive in the Wristcam app for Apple Watch, which displays a crisp live viewfinder, gallery, sharing, and additional controls.
Wristcam's lightweight, highly functional design is water-resistant and includes an internal battery and memory that automatically syncs freshly captured photo and video assets with iPhone while charging. The Wristcam Camera System is exclusive to Apple Watch and available for purchase for $299 at Wristcam.com.
The brainchild of an early Apple Watch program manager, former GoPro hardware lead, and streaming video product pioneers, the Wristcam experience is powered by the multi-patented, Atomic Visual Computing Engine. This unique software stack employs multi-layer networking and resource optimization to enable real-time visual processing for constrained mobile applications.
“Living with Wristcam feels a bit like having superpowers. Customers love our lightweight, casual camera for quick capture while staying in the moment. 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,” says Ari Roisman, CEO and co-founder of Wristcam. “But it's Wristcam's live video capabilities that are truly next level and sci-fi worthy. I'm so proud of our team and the transformational product experience we've been able to craft. We are so excited to see all the new types of content and experiences Apple Watch users create with Wristcam.”
