The Avangard Optics Waterproof Spy Watch Recorder captures HD video at 30 FPS and stores it to 4GB of internal memory. Strap this nifty video gadget to your wrist like you would any other watch, so you have it with you whenever you need it. This camera supports video and still capture and offers easy switching between the two modes. An LED indicator shows you at a glance the camera's current operating status.

The camera features a USB interface for easy connection to a PC for viewing or uploading clips to the Internet. This USB connector is also used to recharge the camera's internal lithium polymer battery which lasts for about 1 hour of continuous recording.

This camera features a built-in microphone for recording audio in sync with the video. A date and time stamp function can be used to imprint the month, date, hour, and second on the image for evidentiary purposes.

This camera features a standby mode which saves battery power by automatically shutting the camera off if the camera is idle for a period of time. A low power indicator warns you if the camera is about to run out of power.

While designed to be waterproof to 98' (30 m), this camera is not meant for underwater use but will withstand complete immersion in water as well as resist ingress of dust.

Note! Not for underwater use.

    out of the box I charged up and used by the book but it would not allow me to connect from computer to the memory in the watch, which renders the hd video useless, it seems to keep time, but so does my cell phone, wanted a discreet video unit

          Comments about Avangard Optics Waterproof Spy Watch Recorder:

          I ordered this watch/recorder as a fun gift, but getting it to work has so far turned out to be anything but fun. The first inkling of trouble was when I peeked at the instructions, which were in Chinese and nominally in English. However, the English instructions had such strange grammar and usage that I couldn't make much sense of them. I therefore went online to get some better instructions, where I found some video clips for similar products. At least I had a fighting chance of figuring out which button did what. I therefore wrote my own instructions from what I had learned. There was also a better set of instructions on the mini-CD ROM that came with the device.

          The next problem occurred when the recipient tried to put the device on his wrist. The band, which appears to have a silicone rubber coating, promptly broke at the buckle. Off to the store for a replacement band.

          Problem 3 occurred when we tried to use the product. At first, there was a problem because the watch drew so much power from the USB port that the computer shut the port down. The watch had been charged before being plugged in, but apparently not enough. I therefore left it on the charger overnight. Next day, the watch connected to the computer; but after being unplugged, the mode buttons no longer worked. This may be a result of an incomplete download or the fact that the buttons tended to stick.

          At this point, the recipient has given up using this device as anything other than a watch, at least for now. I therefore cannot report on the device's performance as a still camera, a video camera, or an audio recorder.

            After receiving the watch, I charged it. Then I had to call customer service because the watch in the instructions was different than the one I received. The rep. had to walk me through the set up. After we were through, the video and audio worked fine. But the watch hands don't move. I returned it.

                    My son had wanted the spy gear watch for his birthday. After buying the spy gear brand before I was not excited to buy that junk again. I found a B&H catalog and saw this watch. It was perfect!! My son LOVES it and said it was the best birthday present he has ever gotten. He loved the fact that it was not just a toy watch and really works!! And works well it does! I think I will be buying a few more for Christmas gifts.

                      Comments about Avangard Optics Waterproof Spy Watch Recorder:

                      I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and appearance of the watch. It was smaller than I expected. The band is a little stretchier than I like, but that is easily replaced if necessary.

                      The quality of audio and video are clear and perfect for the intended purpose. This watch takes still photos and the quality of those was not great.

                      The watch does actually keep time, and the hour and minute hand are functional. Some of the other hands on the watch are painted on, which I thought was kind of funny when I first noticed.
