Best Spy Watch
Using a spy watch to covertly record some incriminating evidence of dirty deeds at work, or of a cheating spouse, can help build your case. Just slip the spy camera watch over your wrist and off you go. Record what you need at a touch of a button, without arousing suspicions.

Spy watches can be used for undercover work by private investigators, journalists, legal professionals, and surveillance operatives, as well as the public.

Is there such a thing as the best spy watch in the world? That’s impossible to say but we’ve got some great tips and picks of what we consider are the best spy camera watches we’ve found so far. Check out the list of our best spy watch picks below.

Best Spy Watch #1. Lawmate Smart Watch

Best Spy Watch by LawMate
Independent Customer Reviews
The LawMate spy watch hasn't received any reviews from independent customers.
Would We Buy It?
Yes for certain tasks but prefer with audio.
What Do We Think?
The LawMate spy watch is designed to look like a smart watch but it actually isn’t; although it does tell the time and functions as a normal watch. The camera lens is concealed in the top side of the watch, so if you were checking the time or resting your arm on a table the lens would be pointing towards your target.

The LawMate is easy to operate with a quick one-touch button on the side. One press of the button for 5 seconds turns the device on and starts covert recording. Once finished just press the same button once to turn off the recording. There is also a discrete icon on the screen to give you visual confirmation recording is in progress. The spy watch captures full color High Definition (HD) video through a 67 degree field of view 3.7mm pinhole camera lens. It comes with an 8GB memory card which is actually plenty of space to record video, but if you want more it will take up to a 32GB SD Card. There is also an icon that tells you if your memory card is full. By the way, there is no audio recording with this watch. The power source is obviously battery power, and you will get 70 minutes of continuous recording on one charge.

We would prefer the option of audio but overall we like it. We love the simplicity and ease of operation the LawMate camera watch has.

Best Spy Watch #2. Eyeclub Hidden Camera Watch

Best Spy Watch by Eyeclub
Independent Customer Reviews
The Eyeclub spy watch received a 4.3 out of 5 stars from independent customers.
Would We Buy It?
Yes, definitely.
What Do We Think?
The Eyeclub is a classy looking spy watch which may make it stand out a little too much in certain situations. That being said it has some really nice features.

This spy watch allows both video and still photo taking in High Definition and the video is also time stamped which is always a pluspoint. It's very easy to use with only two function buttons - one for video and one for still photographs. This camera watch has a built-in 8GB memory card, so there are no options to add more, but is still plenty of recording space to play with.

The Eyeclub also has a continuous record function whereby once the SD card is full the watch will overwrite the older files to itself keep recording. This is useful in difficult situations and ensuring you capture the necessary video.

The only downside (if it's a downside) is the look; in that it's very expensive looking and can attract too much attention in the wrong circumstances. But overall, yes, we love it.

Best Spy Watch #3. LKcare Wristband Spy Watch

Best Spy Watch by LKcare
Independent Customer Reviews
The LKcare spy watch received a 4.1 out of 5 stars from independent customers.
Would We Buy It?
What Do We Think?
The LKcare spy watch is a wristband watch with hidden camera, as well as other sport functions such as a basic pedometer and calorie tracker. We're not interested in these sport functions but if you are then it's a bonus.

What we are interested in though is the look and we like this watch because of it's very simplistic look. It's not at all conspicuous which is primarily what we look for in the best spy watches.

This camera watch is also able to take hidden video recordings and still photos with a simple touch of one of two buttons, depending on what you need. The buttons are located on the side of the main piece and has a light (which is barely noticeable) and buzzer to notify you once you start recording. The light turns off once recording starts.

The video is captured in High Definition (1920x1080) and the consecutive photo-taking is (2560x1440). The wristband spy watch also comes with a 16GB SD card but will support upto 32GB if needed.

So what do we think about this spy watch? For the price and quality of what it can do it's actually a bargain. Some spy watches are more expensive but this one is a more cheaper option and it's definitely worth the money.
Tips For Choosing The Best Spy Watch To Buy

Some important aspects you should consider before buying a spy watch are:

+ Covert – the best spy watch will always be the one that actually looks like a normal wrist watch and not one that looks like something from out of a movie. The watch will be one that goes unnoticed on the wrist and just appearing to be a normal watch.

+ Ease of Use – the best spy camera watch (once sitting on your wrist) needs to be simple to operate. The record on-off switch needs to be a simple one-touch on-off function to avoid mistakes, and failing to get that covert recording needed for evidence.

+ Quality of Recording – no spy watch is of any use if the video and audio recording is of poor quality. The secret recording should playback in good quality with the facility to download onto other media such as computer or SD card.

+ Recording Time – this boils down to the internal storage of the hidden camera watch. A good watch will have plenty of storage space for longer recordings.

+ Battery – battery power is important as you don’t want the watch to stop recording at that crucial moment.

+ Date and Time Stamp – having the date and time recorded on the video, or image - taken by your watch - is important when considering using it as evidence in court.
