Can I Video Call On Apple Watch? Yes with Wristcam
Owing to its exquisite design, excellent use on a small screen, and a growing number of health and fitness apps, the Apple Watch has become one of the most sought-after digital watches in the world. Apple continues to dominate the market, owning half of it and keeping competitors at bay.
The Apple Watch features a wealth of functionality and apps, but, like other smartwatches, it cannot make video calls due to the absence of a built-in camera, which necessitates using a Wristcam. While there have been reports that Apple is contemplating incorporating a built-in camera in the Apple watch; nonetheless, there has been no indication whatsoever that the company is actively working on such an idea.
To begin with, Wristcam is a gadget with a band that includes an 8-megapixel camera forward-facing camera and a 2-megapixel selfie camera just above the watch face, with the camera holding up to 100 photographs or an hour of video. The gadget connects with the Apple Watch through WiFi or Bluetooth and delivers photos and videos using its 8GB internal storage. It also allows hands-free video recording.
The company did not introduce a video calling feature until recently. On Thursday, April 28th, the company revealed that the Apple Watch’s camera-equipped Wristcam would be upgraded to support live video calling. According to reports, the upgrade will be accessible for both existing and new Wristcam devices, and users must seek “early access” to utilize the function.
Wristcam allows you to connect with another Wristcam user as well as another iOS device that has Wristcam installed. The Calling feature works whether your Apple Watch is only WiFi or has LTE cellular connection. It should be emphasized that this is not a native video calling function like FaceTime; both sides must have the Wristcam app installed.
Despite the fact that the device is as expensive – if not more so – than the Apple Watch, it is regarded to have enormous potential to revolutionize the Apple Watch and other smartwatches to a point where it may entirely replace a phone for certain individuals. The wristbands of Wristcam are currently available in black and gray and a limited edition sage green color. According to the firm, more colors such as white and twilight blue are on the way.
With the most recent advancements, wearable technology is expanding its reach beyond watches. With product launches anticipated over the next several years, a host of companies are bolstering their position in the wearable tech market.
