Turn Your iPhone into a Spy Camera Using Your Apple Watch
With the purchase of my new Apple Watch, the days of striving to be a James Bond-like spy have never been closer to fruition. Granted, talking to your wrist in public can look pretty pretentious, and I may very rarely do it, but let's get real—you look like 007!
Since the Watch works as a second screen for your iPhone's camera, find the perfect place to hide your iPhone so that no one will see it. You'll probably want to do this before anyone occupies the space you plan to record in. By default, it opens to the back-facing camera.
Note that your iPhone should be fairly well hidden; you don't want a thief to come and ruin your spy session.
Step 2: Open the Camera on Your Watch
To begin streaming video from your iPhone's camera to your Apple Watch, just tap on the Camera app icon on the Watch. It will automatically launch the Camera app on your iPhone, even if the iPhone's screen is off, and you'll see the video feed on your Watch.
Step 3: Stay Within Reach & Observe
Unfortunately, you can't record video or listen in to what's going on, but you can snap pictures for proof, like someone's hand in the cookie jar or that secret stash in your sock drawer. The Bluetooth technology in the Watch allows for a 300-foot limit, which should be ample space to comfortably view the feed.
