    Was wondering if the camera app can work on wifi when it is out of bluetooth range. Anybody know?

    I tried to test it myself and did get a picture with my iPhone in another room and then the app disconnected so not sure if it just had a faint bluetooth connection or it was indeed wifi. Tried to find it in the Apple literature but could not find any reference.

    Looks like it needs a bluetooth connection for it to work properly;

    Will the watch work on wifi at all. That is the question.

    Yes.

    I'm using it on WiFi only, right now in fact :)

    I think it's mostly a matter of getting your Watch to connect to WiFI vs. BT
