The Best Spy Watch Models You'll Want On Your Wrist
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.

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.

Tips For Choosing The Best Spy Watch

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 simple one-touch to avoid mistakes and not getting that covert recording needed as 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.

And now for a more in-depth look at each of the best spy watch models...
Lawmate Digital Spy Watch

Ok, the first thing we noticed about the Lawmate digital spy watch is obviously the price and look – it’s not cheap but it looks cheap. So let’s dig a little deeper!

Covert: Does it have a covert look? Yes it does. The plain cheap look makes is very inconspicuous which is a plus point where this spy watch is concerned.

The camera lens is concealed in the top side of the watch, so if you were checking the time or resting your arm on the table the lens would be pointing at the target.

Ease of Use: this watch is definitely 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 immediately. 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.

Quality of Recording: the Lawmate captures 1280 X 720 full color High Definition (HD) video through a 67 degree field of view 3.7mm pinhole camera lens. This camera only records video and not audio, which is fine if you live in a State where by law both parties have to be aware of any audio being recorded.

Recording Time: the Lawmate come with a massive 8GB memory card which is actually plenty of space to record video, but if you want more this digital spy watch will take up to a 32GB Micro SD Card. There is also an icon that tells you if your memory card is full.

Battery: how long will the Lawmate spy watch battery last? You can charge this camera watch using your PC or Mac and will get 80 minutes of continuous recording.


Although it looks a little cheap and is rather expensive, it is a great digital spy watch. The adage "you get what you pay for" comes to mind with this watch. And you do get quality.

It is a little disappointing though that this spy watch doesn't have an audio capability that can be turned on and off, depending on the legalities of where it will be used. We understand the makers of this watch were taking the law into consideration which shows how serious they are, so you can guarantee a quality spy camera watch.

In general this watch ticks all but one of our boxes (lack of audio), but the fact we added it to our list of the best spy watches says it all.
