CMRA: Apple Watch Strap with HD Cameras
, / 14 November 2016

Visual communication company, Glide, join forces with global consultancy, IDEO, to produce a watch strap that is able take photos with a flick of the wrist. The CMRA strap comprises two HD cameras, ready to capture photos and videos. The first one is a two-megapixel self-facing camera lens that is located just above the screen. The other one, an eight-megapixel outward-facing camera, is located just beyond the sharp bend in the wristband. These cameras support video chat and take photos of subjects around you, with a push on an indentation – and the result will be synced automatically to the iPhone’s camera roll via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.




“As smartwatches become independent of the phone, wrist cameras will become a commonplace for capturing memories and communicating visually,” said Ari Roisman, Glide CEO. “We are thrilled to be the first to deliver on this long-awaited vision – something science fiction has imagined for over half a century.”

CMRA has an 8 GB embedded memory and a rechargeable battery. The package consists of the strap itself and a charging dock, which charges both it and the Apple Watch. Even if the latter runs out of battery, you can freely continue taking photos using the strap’s shutter.

This splash-resistant strap is available in blue, black, white or grey and is now taking pre-orders. The selling price will be $249 and will start shipping in Spring 2017.
