Wristcam is the first camera made for the Apple Watch. It is designed to take photos and videos as well as support live communication, as well as support for developers just like your phone's camera does, so more use cases will be added with time.
The Wristcam core which holds the electronics can be removed from the Silicone band. You can purchase replacement or different color bands for your Wristcam. It's easy to switch the Wristcam core from one band to another, however please make sure to follow the instructions to avoid damaging your silicone band (a sketch of the core removal and insertion action to come here).
Setting up: Charge the device
Before using Wristcam for the first time, it's important to fully charge it or have it charged for at least one hour. Connect the core to the Wristcam magnetic charging cable through a Wristcam approved wall adaptor. A Red light on the world-facing LED indicates that Wristcam is charging. The LED might turn off after the device is fully charged. When you connect your device for the first time, the LED will glow between red and purple, which indicates it's ready to pair. If it glows Blue, it means you are not connected to the charger.
Note: In some cases, when you first charge the Wristcam, or after not charging the device for more than a few weeks, you might need to disconnect and reconnect the device to the charger to start the charging process.
Pairing Wristcam with your iPhone
While your Wristcam is connected to the charger, and the LED is glowing (red/purple), open the 'Settings' app on your iPhone, go to the Bluetooth settings section and click to pair your Wristcam. It might take up to 30 seconds for the Wristcam to be discovered by your iPhone.
Once the Wristcam is paired with your iPhone, the Wristcam app will take care of the connectivity with your Watch. The Wristcam only needs to be paired once, and connectivity is managed automatically. It is normal for the device to appear disconnected when in Standby mode. Should you need further assistance please contact email@example.com
