Do you spend your spare time watching spy movies or TV shows? Or maybe you like to read and re-read Ian Fleming’s books. If you are into all things spy – in a good way, not the freaky, creepy way – then here is a gadget that you will definitely want to get your hands on.
The 1080P HD Waterproof Spy Camera Watch has recently been listed at Etronixmart ((Buy here)) and it looks pretty promising. It comes with two options – a steel strap or a leather strap. If the idea of having a watch that can take videos (at 1920 x 1280, no less) is not enough to excite you, then maybe the added factor of this baby being waterproof will help. Off the top of my head, I cannot think of an urgent reason to have a video-taking watch while swimming, but I am sure there is one decent reason out there, waiting to be discovered. There is, of course, the option to use this watch instead of an underwater camera, although it might not be possible as with the limited details presented in the site, it seems to me that the watch has to be connected to a computer to record video. Of course, the watch can be used as a regular watch, showing “real” time.
The 1080p waterproof spy camera watch has an embedded operating system and records video in AVI, while it captures images in JPG. For images, the resolution is 4032 x 3024. For video purposes, the watch also has a built-in mic, ensuring that you will not miss out on the sounds. (Again, I won’t delve into the reasons.)
Other important numbers:
- Uses mini USB
- Frame rate is 25 frames
- Powered by a 320mAh Lithium Ion battery; on full charge, the watch can take videos for up to 100 minutes
It may not be the most practical gadget in the market today, but I think that this waterproof spy camera watch will make for a pretty cool gift. It is currently on sale for $52.99, which is the only reason that I would even consider getting one. Otherwise, the regular price is a little too much for something that might not serve me a practical purpose. Then again, it would be a good way to practice one’s spy skills, yes?
