The Apple Watch is an amazing fitness tracker and a pretty good notification device. But it has other tricks, tricks that perhaps you didn't know or didn't know would be as useful as they are. One is the camera application. The Apple Watch doesn't have its own camera, but it gives you the remote control of your iPhone's camera.
This allows you to activate the camera shutter or record a video, from anywhere within the range of your iPhone's Bluetooth radio. Why? Group self-portraits, without having to set the timer and run back to your friends in time to smile. Videos: I used the camcorder function this week to record my progress for my guitar teacher. As I said, it could be more useful than you would expect.
Here's how to use the remote control of the Apple Watch camera.
An excellent wrist remote control
Because your Apple Watch is almost always connected to your iPhone, the configuration is non-existent. Simply open the Camera application on the clock and wait a moment. Soon, the camera view of your iPhone will appear on the watch screen, along with a shutter button and a timer button.
Then, simply use the Apple Watch screen to frame your photo and press one of the buttons. If you are taking a self-portrait, you may prefer to use the timer, which gives you three seconds to compose. If you are only using the clock application as a remote shutter, perhaps to take a photo in a hard-to-reach place or to keep the iPhone camera stable on a tripod, then the regular shutter button will do the trick
Another interesting aspect of using the watch to frame your photo is that you don't need to see the iPhone. screen. That sounds obvious, but how about this? You can place the iPhone on the floor, face up and frame the perfect shot, even with the screen facing the floor.
Or you can lean the camera on a rock, or against a tree, without having to tilt it so you can see the screen to frame the shot. If the iPhone falls asleep, you can wake it up and start the Camera application from the clock. And you can even touch the screen to focus.
