Wristcam has already earned a lot of attention with its hardware –  a wristband accessory that adds a pair of cameras to an Apple Watch. But since it first arrived in summer 2021 there has been one feature which has remained just out of reach – video calling. Now, finally, the Wristcam offers the Jetsons-esque sci-fi possibility the Apple Watch has always hinted at.

The Wristcam itself is a ‘Made for Apple Watch’ band with a difference; as well as dual cameras it has an independent battery and 8Gb memory. The 8-megapixel main camera looks out from the wrist, while the slight bulge in the design allows for the 2-megapixel selfie camera, crucial to the new video calling.
