GoPro today announced an update to its iOS app that will bring Apple Watch integration to users of the popular outdoor recording hardware. The new Apple Watch features will give users access to a GoPro camera's controls, letting them preview their shot, toggle between capture modes, begin and end recording, and even add HiLight tags to important moments in a video.
Also introduced in the 2.11 version of the GoPro app is the ability to browse frame-by-frame through a video and capture still images from it. The company has streamlined media browsing in the app as well, with easier-to-discover photos, videos, HiLights and clips, along with some expanded iOS abilities that make "nearly everything" available on the Apple version of the software that was previously restricted on mobile.
New and Improved:
+ Now compatible with Apple Watch: Preview shots, control your camera, and add HiLight Tags all from your watch.
+ Pull still images from videos: Quickly flip through a video frame-by-frame to find that epic moment and download a high-quality still image.
+ Find your media faster: Locate that awesome shot by filtering your media to display only photos, videos, HiLights, or clips.
+ Nearly everything is viewable on iOS: Enjoy your shot on the spot with a generated preview that allows you to view high frame-rate video on your phone.
