GoPro Now Lets Remote Snapping and Shooting via Apple Watch

December 12, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

GoPro is adding a new device to the list of controllers that can handle the action cam remotely, which already includes iPhones and other remotes.

The newbie is also an Apple device, and seems like the most convenient way of starting and ending a GoPro session; by just simple taps on the wrist.

Yes, it’s the Apple Watch that now gets remote control features through the new app update that has been released for iOS.


Accompanying the goody list of upgrades for the app is an Apple Watch app, which will now resolve the worries of controlling smartphones or remotes during adventurous rides.

The core feature of the Apple Watch app lets you start and stop recordings or snap images by just tapping on the screen. Besides that, you can also have the viewfinder view enabled to set the frames before you start your sessions.

Users will also be able to tweak some of the GoPro settings for better sessions, or can ‘HiLight’ videos so that it gets easier to find those in the editing sessions later.

All of these come with the new update for iOS, which itself adds some new features like having easy access to image capturing from the captured videos, and a media filtering tool that can be used to shuffle between videos, photos, and tags.

These features are also made available for the Android version of the app on Play Store.

GoPro also recently revealed the name of their new camera drone. Karma, the upcoming quadcopter-styled drone, will be making its debut at some point during 2016.
