About this app

Remote control the phone camera shutter from your smartwatch and take a picture without touching your phone.

Please watch the video and read the FAQ:

Open the phone app "Camera Remote Watch" and adjust the camera view.

On your watch: open the app "Camera Remote Watch" and tap the Camera button to trigger the camera shutter on your phone.

The photo will be stored in your phone photo gallery and you can access it with the Android "Gallery" app.

A copy of the photo will be shown on your watch, so that you can check if it looks good or if you should take another picture.

Please make sure that the watch and the phone are connected before starting to take pictures. Be patient when downloading the new photo (the watch is slow). If the watch display goes black during the download of the photo, just tap the watch screen to switch the display on again.

If you have a phone that is not officially supported by Android, the phone app Camera Remote Watch may not work on your phone.

This app works also with Android Wear OS smartwatches.

It technically works, but the processing is slow and the photo quality isn't the best. After you click the button on your Fitbit, it takes 20-30 seconds to process before you can preview the picture. If your phone has features like night sight or portrait mode, those won't work through this app. It will work for taking photos in bright light or if you want a flash. You can't access the photos in the app. Now that Google owns Fitbit, they need to build this function into their own camera app.

Custom app clamps photo size and doesn't utilize my phone's incredibly high quality camera. Also takes multiple seconds to register a hit to the "take photo" button, even with the timer off, meaning you can't capture "in the moment" shots. It worked, technically, but not well.

The app does work with my versa and galaxy s8, however showing a connection error it does take the picture. Bad review because it is incredibly slow. If I want to take a picture it first takes up to 2-3 minutes to connect with the watch and then it takes multiple seconds for it to make the actual picture. Also the picture format is smaller than my normal camera. Would be much better if it got faster and worked with the normal camera shutter!

The Fitbit phone app "Sync" step, shown in the video, is very important. Don't skip it and make sure that the watch app "Camera Remote Watch" is closed during the Sync.
