How can I use a smartwatch as a remote for my camera?

Episode 1188 (17:14)

John from Pasadena, CA
LG Watch Urbane

John has a Panasonic Lumix camera that he uses for his photography hobby. He's been shooting since the 70s. But he wants to know how he can link it to his smartwatch and use it as a trigger remote. Leo says that both the Apple Watch and Android Smartwatches can do that with the phone camera. He can even see what the phone sees from the watch. This allows him to remote trigger and even do a self timer option.

Many cameras have a Wi-Fi connection, so it's only a matter of time before someone writes an app for the watch to take advantage of it. The LG G Watch R and the LG Urbane have beautiful OLED screens.
