Manage your action camera photo and video shots remotely from the Apple Watch

2015-12-19

GoPro action cameras are popular among adventure travelers, explorers and adrenaline junkies. GoPro is also the default add-on camera for many drone models that don’t come with a camera of their own. Controlling the camera can sometimes be difficult if it is attached, for instance, to a helmet and hands are not free to hold a smartphone that is connected to the camera. To solve this problem, GoPro has developed an app for the Apple Watch.

Once you have downloaded the GoPro application to the Apple Watch, you can see what the camera sees on the smartwatch display. You can tap the watch screen to take a photo or start video recording.

The configuration is not as straightforward as using the watch as a remote camera controller. The setup requires an iPhone where the GoPro app is connected to the GoPro camera via Wi-Fi. Once that connection is working, you connect the Apple Watch to the iPhone and gain control over the camera from the smartwatch.

Digital Trends tried it out and created a video that shows the Apple Watch GoPro camera in action.

Application Delivers News to the Apple Watch

On the 8th June, 2015 Apple told that it is possible to create applications for the Apple Watch that run on the smartwatch. This is widely regarded as a mobile technology milestone just like the announcement seven years ago was when it became possible to develop applications for the iPhone. It also means that soon, we will see innovative apps on the Apple Watch, but even before that there are some useful apps for the smartwatch.

El Pais, a major newspaper in Spain, has developed an app for the Apple Watch that brings the news headlines with photos to the smartwatch screen. You may scroll through the headlines, and when you spot a story you want to read, you mark it as a favorite. When you are ready to read the news item, pick up your iPhone and the whole story is awaiting for you there.
