Use your Apple Watch to control your 360fly camera

We are excited to announce that you can now use your Apple Watch as a remote for your 360fly camera with version 1.9.0 of the iOS app installed on your iPhone.


Installing 360fly App on Apple Watch

To begin, lets make sure that you have the app installed on your Apple Watch. The easiest way is to simply toggle the setting to enable "Automatic App Install." This will automatically install the corresponding Apple Watch app to your Apple Watch when downloaded from the App Store.

To confirm or change your setting, launch the Apple Watch App on your iPhone.


Next tap on General and make notice of the toggle next to "Automatic App Install"



Now you will want to make sure that the app is set to "Show App on Apple Watch."

Tap back on the "My Watch" in the top left of the screen, then scroll down until you see your list of apps.

Now that you have confirmed that the app is installed, tap on the app to verify that it is set to "Show App on Apple Watch."




How to use your Apple Watch to control your 360fly Camera

First make sure that the camera is connected to your iPhone via Wifi and Bluetooth.

Once connected, launch the app on your Apple Watch from the "Home Screen"

You will now see a large button and the mode at the bottom. In the first image, the camera is ready and in 360 video mode. The second image is showing the camera while it is recording. There is a time counter and the button will change to RED.



To change the recording mode of your camera, scroll using the "Digital Crown" on the side of your Apple Watch to cycle through the available recording options on your 360fly camera. 

Other recording options for the 360fly 4K only include:

- POV mode

- 360 TimeLapse mode



And that is how to install the 360fly app onto your Apple Watch and how to use the app to control your 360fly camera from your Apple Watch. Enjoy!
