How do you start and stop a video recording on your iPhone remotely using the Apple Watch's camera app? I have no problem taking still shot pictures but I don't see an option for video.

To begin streaming video from your iPhone's camera to your Apple Watch, just tap on the Camera app icon on the Watch. It will automatically launch the Camera app on your iPhone, even if the iPhone's screen is off, and you'll see the video feed on your Watch. When you're done on the watch tap End Video.

It is not presently possible to start and stop a video recording on your iPhone remotely using the Camera app on Apple Watch.

The app can presently only be used for taking photos.
