Any plans for Apple Watch app to view feeds?

Not sure how plausible it’d be, but would be an awesome option for those of us who can’t use our phones at work too much :wink:

I’ve passed this idea along to the keeper of Wyze’s feature request tracker. As an Apple Watch user, I’d like to see this too. I agree that it may not be feasible due to the data rate that would be required between the phone and the watch.

Thanks! It was just a thought I had while checking feeds from my phone. My wife has it worse, as she works at a Federal facility where smartphones are not allowed, so she has a Series 3 LTE to check messages and such, I believe the $10/mo device plans are for unlimited data so for her case this would work great!

So far not caring for my Wyze camera. Having the ability on the Apple watch would help a lot. And should be able on the watch especially the ones with LTE version.

I love this idea and would like using it. I have 5 Insteon cameras and while there is an Apple Watch app it will not display any video - making it a useless app.
I have faith in Wyze coming through on this.

We upgraded to series 4, and wife got the LTE again. Sending videos via Facebook messenger and iMessage is no problem, the watch handles those great, even long ones. So the hardware can do it, just need Wyze to make the software happen!

Maybe this is a niche case, but when I check the camera, I’m usually only looking at a small area of interest (my baby’s face to check if she’s sleeping). I imagine the bandwidth requirements could be a lot lower if the phone could just send a small, user-determined crop of the camera’s field of view. Is that feasible?

Even if full FPS live video isn’t possible, and Apple Watch app would still be useful with just static images updating every few seconds after getting a motion alert. Or just to pull up on demand.

This topic has now been moved to the #roadmap category. You can now vote for it using the VOTE button at the top of the thread. You must click VOTE for it to count.

I actually don’t own a Apple Watch but was looong at getting one, and I think it would be a great idea to be able to link everything to you watch!

Another idea could be to have the app text you the 14sec alert video so you can view it on the watch vs a live feed.
