Swiss Smartwatch Puts a 41-Megapixel Camera on Your Wrist


Nokia’s Lumia 1020 and 808 PureView may boast the biggest camera sensor on any smartphone, but a new gadget could give those phones some competition — if you’re willing to drop some serious bucks. Switzerland’s $1,200 Hyetis Crossbow smartwatch comes equipped with a 41-megapixel camera, which is the same-sized sensor found on today’s most advanced smartphone camera. Not only does the Crossbow come with a massive pixel sensor, but it also boasts an optical zoom lens with integrated ring flash.

Like most wearable gadgets, the device is designed to communicate with your iOS, Android or Windows Phone 8 mobile device. It does this through Bluetooth or NFC, and it can also connect to nearby Wi-Fi networks. Hyetis also claims that it has built in sensors to detect temperature, GPS location and biometric information. However, we’re a bit skeptical on these capabilities since Hyetis’ disclaimer says the watch’s “technical features can vary on the production model” at this stage.
