Hi,
@DJI:
Are you planning to release a update for the Go App 4 that the Apple Watch will be supported?
For me (and I think many others) it would be a perfect solution for the new mavic air smart capture function that u can use without RC or Phone connection.

Imagine...you launch via palm start without RC or Mobile connection, activate on your Apple Watch video recording, take a picture or some quickshots ? You will see a battery life on your wrist or preview of photos that u captured. (One more idea make a virtual joystick and control mavic air)

Please Dji, make the Go App 4 Apple Watch compatible.



Thanks.

I was thinking about it too!! Maybe the Digital Crown could adjust the drone altitude.

#Quick Reply Here#Iphone / Android smartphone is not just a simple online video viewing screen! The application makes full use of the airplane's processor terminal. The watch processor of Apple Watch would not meet the hardware requirements of the application at least not at present with the existing technology!

Apple watch is well known to cause serious interference. Better don't bring it nearby at all.

Wachtberger is right.

Thank you, and now an a little bit naughty joke: "DJI, please make GO 4 compatible with "Alexa". ;-)

The Apple watch doesn't seem to want to connect to anything directly except through bluetooth. All wifi connections seem to occur through the iPhone. I certainly wouldn't want to trust this chain of devices to control a drone. I limit my use of the phone as the only controller because I don't trust it as much as I do the dedicated remote.

Maybe I am misunderstanding.  Wouldn't screen of Apple iWatch be to too tooo small to view & use GO4 app.  Even if iWatch had a fast enough processor and big enough power source.

Bring the drone, bring the cell phone.  Easy.  I figure the Watch app would be a solution in search of a problem.  Or, a lot of problems.  Owner looking at his watch, "My drone flew away!"

I don't know if everyone looked at the video which was posted at #5.
That guy talked about 'compass calibration' with the Apple watch nearby.
And with all other metallic devices or radiating gadgets, of course the calibration will fail. This is not Apple watch specific.
He even flew with an MavicAIR and an Apple watch hooked in the front arm and had no problem.

You can already do (nearly all) this without the need of the apple watch.
You press twice the button on the Mavic Air rear led and you are in Gesture Mode.
You take off, you start a video with the "frame" hand gesture, you adjust distance and the drone will follow you. Only thing missing would be the battery level. That would be interesting.
It would also be great having the ability to launch Quickshots.

Apple watch itself does no harm. I have it and is not a problem. The magnetic band of the apple watch in that particular video creates the problem. Any magnet would do. Put a pair of over-ear headset next to the drone when you calibrate and you'll see.

It depends what you are want to display on a Apple watch's display.
There is an app called Kittyhawk (similar to GO4)  They have an Apple watch app in which you can check current weather, airspace, wind a few more useful infos...

@Wachtberger there is no intereference when u are using only drone without rc.

@Briviao i know but try it in real life when u need to take a picture and drone didnt recognize you it´s not perfect and i want to click on my wrist and make photo or video. Easier and better

@DJI Diana Thank you very much

@Tomas Kozacek nice idea

@B1houdini but im not talking about spark (wifi connection between phone and rc and spark) now mavic air have new function "smart gesture without phone or rc" and now it´s possible i think.

I was really hoping to use the Apple watch as a remote control for my new Osmo Mobile 2.

Please create app for the  Watch and DJI GO!
