Smart watches have become increasingly popular and more companies have starting producing them.
It’s become important for developers to find new ways to stay ahead of the market. Introducing new features is the easiest way to do so, and so the latest trend was born: smart watches with a camera.
From being just a smart watch, these accessories have evolved into the preferred device for functionality.
There are now a plethora of smart watches with a camera feature available on the market. Taking a look at all the options, you’ll quickly realize that each has its subtle differences. While the camera feature is the main selling point, there are some other unique functions to consider.
This makes it difficult to pick one. Even narrowing down the list can be a daunting task, which is why we’ve done that for you. Here, we offer you our top ten smart watches with a camera.

2. KOBWA KW88 Smart Watch

The KW88 is multi-functional, and can be used as an MP3 player and sound recorder too.

Among the more notable features of the Gt08 are its Bluetooth dialer, pedometer, sleep monitor, sedentary reminder, MP3 player, alarm clock, and – of course – its front-facing camera.
The latter is placed at the top of the unit, and is capable of capturing stills and videos alike. It can also be used remotely, which we feel is a nice touch.
With a SIM card, the GT08 is almost as good as any smart phone. You can easily sync it with your Android, but for iOS devices you’ll be limited to using it as a Bluetooth device.
4. Willful SW016
The Willful SW016 is a beautifully crafted smart watch, capable of acting independently as a smart phone.
All it takes is a SIM card to enable phone calls. Inserting a TF card allows you to store photos taken with its 0.3M camera, and you’ll be able to play music and record sound too.
The SW016 is a worth fitness accessory too, with step tracking, a calorie counter, and sleep monitor. The alarm clock and calender will make sure you never miss an event, and you’ll receive all your notifications with the Fundo app for Android.
iPhone functions are limited, as there isn’t an iOS version of the app available yet. You’ll still be able to connect via Bluetooth though, and the high sensitive capacitive touch screen makes it a worthy companion.
The SW016 is available in black, gold, and silver, allowing you to make the stylish choice.
5. Collasaro Wrist Smart Watches
The Collasaro Wrist smart watch uses an advanced MTK2502C configuration to connect with your Android or iOS. The integrated app allows for all smart phone notifications to be received, and you can even sync your contacts list.

Most important is the photo storage and HD camera, which can be used remotely too. The host of fitness features also make it a contender on the athletics accessory list.

The 1.3 million pixels HD camera is capable of still photography and remote shooting. It’s one of the accessory’s best features, and the quality is certainly nothing to scoff at.

Texts and other notifications? Check.
Camera with a remote capture feature? Check.
The Aosmart Smart Wrist Watch is a pleasing entry on our list of the top ten smart watches with a camera. Thanks to its Bluetooth capabilities and SIM slot, there’s very little that you can do on a smart phone that you won’t be able to do just as well on your wrist.
It also fits the bill of a fitness accessory rather well too, with a host of health management features.
The only real downside is that some of the features aren’t compatible with Apple products.
8. Padgene DZ09
Apple users suffer once again, unfortunately. Although the Padgene DZ09 is fully compatible with all Android devices, iOS phones can’t sync text or Bluetooth.
You’ll be able to capture and store quality images, though. The passometer and sleep tracker make it suitable for anyone on the look-out for a fitness accessory with a camera.
Bidirectional and anti-loss enabled, the Padgene DZ09 also comes with NFC capability. This negates the need to search for Bluetooth pairing. You’ll be able to store MP3 and MP4 files to play through its speaker (or via Bluetooth, of course).
With the electronic business card features, you’ll be making new connections on the go with ease. The wide variety of band options and pairings make it an attractive smart watch too.
9. Amenon Smart Watch
The Amenon Smart Watch boasts a number of features. Hand-free capabilities, a quality camera, anti-loss, and a remote music control are just the tip of the iceberg.
Fitness functions include a sedentary reminder, sleep detection, and a fully-optimized tracking feature.
Never mind the GSM SIM and TF card slots, the Amenon is fully Android compatible. Yet again, iPhone users get the short end of the stick, losing out on the anti-loss, messaging, notifications, and remote camera syncing abilities.
With a 1.22” 240*240 resolution face and four color variants, this is certainly a fashionable smart watch.

Finding the perfect look for you has never been easier either. The e-Connection DZ09 is available in florid, colorful, and classic.
These top ten smart watches have a lot to offer beside their cameras. Ultimately, it’s these ‘extras’ that become the deciding factor when looking to make a purchase.
