HD Watch Camera
At first glance, this HD watch camera looks just like any other watch, and it even functions normally as a watch. Its clever secret is a full colour HD 720P video camcorder with nearly an hour's recording time per charge, making it the perfect body worn companion for discreet surveillance on the move. A heavy duty and watch that doesnt disappoint.
Functional Gent's HD Camera Watch; with Switchable Battery and SD Card Storage
This men's wrist watch can be worn as a normal timepiece however, it is a HD Watch Camera with a removable SD card storage, and currently the only watch with an interchangeable lithium battery.
The watch has a smart appearance with a stainless steel fascia and a comfortable rubberised wrist strap. By visual inspection the watch cleverly blends the video camera and IR illumination for complete peace of mind. The recording button is unmarked and the entire operation is child's play. There are no LED's whilst recording which makes this Watch Camera suitable for people who need to obtain crucial video footage under close scrutiny.
INTERCHANGEABLE POWER SUPPLY
The watch battery can be interchanged (2x supplied) so you can switch a drained battery for a fully charged battery and continue recording. Each fully charged battery provides approx 50 minutes of video recording time.
SD CARD STORAGE
All video footage is stored to a Micro SD card (supplied) concealed inside the watch. Using an SD card storage is advantageous because the memory is also interchangeable and this makes play back of video footage compatible with Windows and Mac computers without any special software.
HD VIDEO RESOLUTION
Capture 1280 x 720 full colour video @ 30 FPS (frames per second). Recording is accompanied with audio and a time and date stamp for evidential purposes.
Please Note: Although the HD Watch Camera produces the same film quality as any other 720P watch camera, the footage is real resolution and not upscaled artifically using cheap software.
AUTO FOCUS LENS
The camera lens can detect visual distance to ensure picture recording remains in focus whether you are close up or further away.
The spy watch is integrated with an invisible IR which automatically activates when low light is detected. Realistically, we feel this is a gimmick however, if recording within a 30 cm distance is required the illumination will help.
INTELLIGENT AUTO SAVE
The watch will automatically save the last video recording before the internal lithium battery drains, so should you forget to manually stop recording, all important video files are not lost.
WINDOWS AND MAC COMPATIBLE
Any computer running Windows or Mac operating systems is compatible with this watch.
FREE GENUINE APPLE USB MAINS PLUG INCLUDED
The HD Watch Camera is a nice looking and sturdy timepiece, but a superb hands free body worn recording accessory for capturing evidence in most indoor and outdoor environments.

Can I wear the watch as a functional timepiece?
Yes. The watch is heavy duty and can be worn as a normal to display the correct time.
How is the watch and camera powered?

Yes. The watch is fitted with a 720P HD video camera which produces true video. So, whilst the footage may look the same as many watch cameras it is not using artificial upscaling software. In addition (although not a wow factor) an invisible 940 nm illumination will automatically activate under low light conditions up to 30 cm's.
Why is the watch camera upside down?
When you wear the watch and cross your arms the video camera is the correct way upwards.
