Camera in a Smart Watch...?

Any recommendations for a smart watch with an on-board camera?

Surprised to see, while at Best Buy yesterday, this is not a mainstream product as yet.

Between the physical size constraints and trying to shoehorn a lens and sensor in there and the practical reality of trying to point and shoot the camera at anything other than yourself I can't see it happening soon.

What possible use could one make of it? Tiny sensor, no lens worth the name and no viewfinder or way to compose an image. Looks like a kids toy, no more.

Not close to a camera in a smart watch, but Garmin makes several smart watches (I have the Fenix) that can easily control its action camera Virb. It is something I use to take photos on a selfie stick or to control the action cam while mounting it on my helmet during skiing/snowboarding.
