Polscam today unveiled the video calling feature for its accessory. The band has an 8MP and 2MP front and selfie respectively, with the device capable of recording an hour of video or about 2,000 photos. It connects via Bluetooth or WiFi and also has hands-free recording.

With video calling enabled, Apple Watch users can now make calls from their wrist. By default, the smartwatch can make audio and voice calls, but it doesn’t have video calling capabilities because it doesn’t have a built-in camera. The Wristcam app lets you check to see if iPhone calls outside of FaceTime or Apple’s native video calling app.

The third-party band maker’s website says users must submit an early access request to enable the feature. The company also announced an SDK launch so developers can tap into the technology.
