    The rumors say the new Watch is going to have a FaceTime camera. I have a friend who while we were talking about the Watch said he would love a camera on the watch. I don't think I would. I like being able to use the watch as my iPhone viewfinder. I remember seeing the Samsung watch ad with their camera and laughed thinking how gimmicky it looked.
    Do you guys want a camera on your Watch?

    If it does only FaceTime and nothing else, then it's not worth it (to me at least) as I don't use FaceTime like I did before. But then, it's still an additional feature.

    I don't know what it is but I just feel like I wouldn't use a camera on the watch. So I'd rather them concentrate on other things. But maybe I'm in the minority on it.

    I wouldn't use one. I feel like my arm and wrist would get tired

    I don't think I'd really use it either and it would ruin the aesthetic of the front bezel. It isn't terribly noticeable on the front of the iPhone but it would stick out like a sore thumb on the watch.

    See I feel like this is a grass is always greener on the other side. People think they want it but really I'm not sure how much they will actually use it. A camera to make Facetime calls I feel would be silly becaue like someone said your arm is gonna get tired real fast holdiing it up to your face. I feel like there are so many other things they could do that would make users a lot happier than putting a camera in there.

    I rarely use FaceTime on my other devices so I know I wouldn't use it on an Watch. A camera on the Watch, whether for pics or videos, is not something I look forward to having, but I don't have any objections to Apple providing it because there are those who would make use of it.

    I'm not sure if I would use a camera on my  watch but it would be cool to have Ned I can just imagine the cool apps the devs would come up with.

    How good could the resolution be? The little kid in me wants that but the adult in me says why? But I'm sure I would buy it

    I had a camera in my Samsung Gear. It was a neat trick at first but got old and I never used the camera after a short while. I think Apple could focus on other things but I'm not too sure just what right now. Loving my apple watches. I do wish you could pair it with more than one phone though...would have saved me from having to buy 2.

    Pretty much.

    Wouldn't make me NOT buy it, but I wouldn't update the one I have just to get a camera on it.

    No way. Definitely not necessary.

    Honestly I feel it's not necessary. Even if it's for Facetime, I'd rather use my phone instead.

    I agree. And if you can use the watch as a viewfinder for the iPhone(which I read you can) which you have to have anyway, why is it necessary?

    You can use it as a viewfinder for your iPhone camera and take pictures remotely. I don't personally find a ton of value in it because I still have to take my phone out. The only benefit I can see with a camera on the watch itself is for FaceTime.

    Interesting. The viewfinder feature is nice but not something I'd anticipate using too often. Facetime or Skype capability is potentially more useful to me though.

    As long as I can take nice selfies like this using my  Watch as a viewfinder, I'm all set. 😀
