We knew it was only a matter of time, but it’s officially on the way. Triggertrap has announced that it will soon be releasing an update for its iOS app that will allow Apple Watch users to trigger their camera(s) from their wrist via an existing ‘Wearables’ function.

Already, Triggertrap’s iOS app supports remote triggering from Pebble’s lineup of smartwatches, but it says it’s hard at work to bring support to the million Apple Watches already ordered and the millions more sure to follow.

Triggertrap reiterates the update, due out ‘in the coming weeks,’ will ‘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 time-lapse sequence.’

It’s only a matter of time before remote camera support becomes more robust — can someone say full aperture, ISO and shutter speed control from your wrist? But it’s a first step towards the inevitable innovation smart watches will bring to the photography world.

You can download Triggertrap’s iOS app here. To use it in combination with your Pebble smart watch, you must also download the app from Pebble’s app store.
