Glide is a communication product design company, founded in 2012. The company pioneered instant video messaging (think: video walkie walkie), and is the market leader in photo and video apps for Apple Watch. The company's 2019 mission is to build the killer app for Apple Watch, and sell millions of wrist cameras.
Glide's debut hardware product, CMRA, is a Dual-HD camera band that pioneers the smart-band ecosystem for Apple Watch and its over 40 million owners. CMRA is the first to turn the watch into a bonafide content creation tool, and enable live video wrist communication.

CMRA was developed internally at Glide by an ex Apple Watch Program Manager and GoPro's former Hardware Lead who designed the Hero 4 and Hero 5 action cameras. The company is advised by several senior ex Apple execs who believe in the product and its strategic value to Apple. Over 10,000
CMRA devices were pre-sold to date. CMRA is on schedule to begin shipping in Summer 2018, followed by select retail availability in late 2018.
Glide was recently listed on the 10 Most Innovative Companies for Video (Fast Company), and Glide's Founder/CEO was included in 35 Innovators Under 35 by MIT Technology Review.
