Many expected to see a camera in Apple's smartwatch in the second version of the device - and were probably disappointed when it didn't. Justice has decided to revive the Israeli startup Glide. Their CMRA strap is equipped with two cameras at once: the main eight-megapixel module and the two-megapixel "front" one. Everything is like in a smartphone: the first one is needed for taking photos and videos in the “I shoot where my hand points” mode, and the second one is for selfies. "The camera is valuable only when it is turned on and ready to shoot," The Verge portal quotes the Glide chapter. "And our smartphones live in our pockets."
It is not yet entirely clear how exactly the strap connects to the watch at the software level (most likely not directly: first from the iPhone via Bluetooth, and only then all the information is transmitted to the watch), but it is already known that CMRA operates on a separate battery. A docking station is included with the device, which can simultaneously charge both the watch and the camera. It is reported that the batteries can be replenished on the go, away from the outlet.
CMRA will go on sale in spring 2017, but you can pre-order it now. The price is $ 199 or even $ 149 if you are among the first buyers. In retail, they will cost more - $ 249.>
