Smartphones is ruling shoot market, and wearable computers like Google Glass may someday return the favor, but there’s a new gadget that could help the smartphone hold dominance. Yes that is smartwatch, and if the newHyetis Crossbow is any indication, smartwatches aren’t playing around when it comes to photography.
Crossbow claims the first Swiss smartwatch has a lot to live up to in the watch department. But what’s really jaw dropping about the watch isn’t the titanium and sapphire crystal that it’s made of, or the expected built-in Bluetooth, WiFi and NFC. What makes it stand out is that Hyetis is promising to put a 41-megapixel camera inside.
Pointing straight out from twelve o’clock — where the watch is, incidentally, thickest — will be a 41-megapixel sensor (no word on size) that sees the world through Carl Zeiss optics. It’ll even have a little ring of LEDs built around it to act as a ring flash when necessary.
The watch also sports a plethora of sensors, including a light meter, altimeter, microphone, thermometer, barometer, and some unspecified biometric sensors built into the band — it looks like they beat Sony to the punch on that last one.
The company released product will work with Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8 devices. currently planned crossbow in a limited edition run of 500 at a price will be $1,200.
