Is there any way to set/monitor the Time Lapse feature remotely from an iPhone on Watch?
Yes there is.
On the Apple watch there is a Camera Remote App built in.
First open the camera on your iPhone and choose Time-lapse.
Then open the Camera Remote App on the Apple Watch - the icon looks like the corner of an SLR camera and it's Black and White.
You will see a preview on the Apple watch screen of wherever your iPhone camera is pointing and this updates if you move the iPhone.
There is a button on the Apple Watch screen to start and stop recording.
The iPhone and Apple watch need to be within Bluetooth range of each other.
The Apple watch will provide a preview / live view of all of the iPhone native camera modes with the exception being Panorama. All other modes have a live feed on the Apple Watch screen (including stop / start controls) and this live view continues to be shown during recording.Thanks very much for the clarification.
The Watch cannot steam video (when recording), but the Time Lapse feature can?!
