PebbleCam

The ultimate camera live preview and remote control via your Pebble for iPhone and Android.

Now, your Pebble can see what your phone sees. PebbleCam streams the camera of your iPhone or Android phone right onto your wrist. From your Pebble, you can toggle between rear and front camera, flash light mode or take high-res pictures as you wish.

No WiFi or internet connection required!

This allows a complete new set of opportunities for you and your phone's camera. You can take pictures without anyone noticing. You can monitor your workplace while you chat with your colleague.

Say goodbye to hurriedly rejoining your group photos… 😄

FAQs & Troubleshooting

What is a Pebble?

The Pebble™ is a so-called smartwatch with an e-paper display. It comes with various watch-faces and can run custom apps. Some of these apps communicate with your phone so that you can see incoming SMS messages, e-mails and calls. You can get one for ~$150 at getpebble.com.

Why is the camera feed transmitted so slowly?

Before we started the project we measured the maximum bandwidth available to the Pebble. Apparently the communication is limited to ~3 kilobytes per second! And it's even slower on Android... This is roughly enough to transfer a single frame per second. We are already working on a special video codec to cope with that limitation.

The camera feed won't show up on my Pebble!

Sometimes something goes wrong in the long communication chain between your Pebble, your phone and the PebbleCam app. Try to do one of the following:

  • Exit the PebbleCam app on your phone and on your Pebble.
  • Reinstall the PebbleCam app on your Pebble by tapping the cogwheel icon.
