[CES 2017] While Apple has not disclosed their sales numbers for the Apple Watch, they claim that it has done rather well so far. With that in mind, how will third party accessory manufacturers figure out whether there is a large enough market for Apple Watch add-ons? The CMRA is a bold attempt for sure, being an industry-first smart watchband for the Apple Watch.
First revealed to the world last November by Glide, the CMRA will boast of not just one, but a pair of High Definition (HD) cameras which will work in tandem to deliver a seamless photo and video capturing experience from your wrist itself. Yes, you might be seen as fiddling with menu options on your Apple Watch by those who do not know any better when you are actually performing a James Bond routine, trying to capture what’s going on around you.
The dual-camera band would see the Apple Watch gain a self-facing camera which will pave open the way to snap selfies with your smartwatch, or to carry out a video chat on it. Certainly an accessory that is truly original at this point in time. Pre-orders for the CMRA are available for $169 a pop, where it ought to ship from this spring onward if there are no hiccups. If you missed out on the pre-order, then the final retail price would be a far more expensive $249.
