Triggertrap wants to capitalize on the rise of the smartwatch. The camera remote company today announced a new “Wearables” mode for its Triggertrap Mobile app for iOS devices. It’s the first app that lets photographers trigger their camera with their smartwatch through an iOS app.

“Photographers everywhere now have the ability to trigger their camera remotely from their wrist,” Triggertrap says. “This can be incredibly useful for simple applications, such as taking self-portraits, to more advanced techniques like triggering long exposures for light painting or starting a timelapse sequence.”

The update currently supports Pebble’s current line of smartwatches, but Triggertrap says it’s working hard to bring the feature to the new Apple Watch “in coming weeks.”

If you already own a Triggertrap Mobile device, you can find this new Wearables functionality in the latest iOS update in the iTunes App Store and as a smartwatch app in the Pebble App Store.

This is likely just the tip of the iceberg: As the smartwatch usage becomes more widespread, we’ll undoubtedly see innovative and exciting new ways of interacting with cameras using watches.
