Finally used the Camera App on my Apple Watch


6a00e55225079e88340133ed129c9a970b-piIMG_9310-0This past New Years Eve I finally  found a use case for using the camera app on my Apple Watch.  We wanted to take a group photo and silly me I forgot my selfie stick!  Bad Asian!!  Anyway, I remembered that my Apple Watch is hooked up via Bluetooth to my iPhone 6 and that there is a remote camera app so that I can take photos.  I had to position the camera on a table and stand it up but what was cool is that I could use my Watch to  see what my iPhone was going to shoot.

I was going to use the 3 second timer but at midnight with a few 4 year olds, even 3 seconds was too long.  I was able to shoot the picture just fine but what I didn’t know is that it shoots in burst mode to ensure that I get an awesome picture!  I’m going to have to start using this app more and more when I want to take photos of things.  I just need a mount of my iPhone so I can take awesome stills from hard to reach places and when i can’t see my iPhone screen.

I need the Apple Watch to be more useful, and downloading more apps is helping but I think the real usefulness would come with syncing it with my work phone but I’m not ready to take that step.  I’ll keep it synced to my personal phone for now, besides I don’t want to see work emails on the weekends on my wrist anyway 😉
