Looking like it is straight out of Thunderbirds, the Wristcam is a novel add-on device for the Apple Watch. By adding two cameras to this strap, the user adds both a front and rear cameras to the Apple Watch – allowing you to use it to take pictures, shoot video, or make video calls.

First introduced in 2015, the Apple Watch is now in its sixth generation – but none of the versions so far have cameras built in as they are designed to be an hand-worn accessory for an iPhone, rather than an independent device. But the makers of the Wristcam has now come up with an option for what to do if you don't have your iPhone with you - but want to take quick snap of something you see, or Facetime someone when out for a jog.
