Whether it's for a YouTube prank channel or crazy documentation purposes, you can unleash your inner James Bond with these nifty hidden wearable cameras.

For better or for worse, technology has managed to make it easier than ever to record people doing just about everything. 

We have iPhone cameras that are so good, you can even buy lenses for your smartphone to make the photos more Instagram-worthy.  We have things like some of the best DSLR cameras ever made, as well as revolutionary cameras like the Rylo 360

Cameras are as small as they can be and the small sizes they offer up are game-changers. Hidden wearable cameras can now be used to play pranks that will later stream on YouTube, catch a cheating spouse, or even record special candid moments. 

It's a little James Bond if you think about it. We literally live in a time when you can get a real-life Dick Tracy-style watch if you want one. Want to get the best hidden cameras out there? Check these out.

This invention could't be any more slick if it tried. Channeling every single spy and Secret Service movie ever made, this Bluetooth earpiece is actually one of the most low-key hidden wearable cameras on the market.

The necklace itself is so small, it's nearly impossible to see the holes for the audio and video. It works in low light, has great mic technology, and does the trick in a pinch. 

HD Hidden Camera Smartwatch by SpyTec

Though watches are one of the oldest forms of hidden camera wearables you can find, they remain popular because of their "tried and true" track records. People simply don't think of watches as spy gear, even though they absolutely can be.

SpyTech's HD Hidden Camera Smartwatch is a great choice for people who want to keep their spy work very subtle and want night vision capacity, too. The watch itself can store up to an hour of information and has a two-hour battery life. 

Spy Camera Hat by RecorderGear

Nondescript is the look you want to attain when you are trying to look for wearable cameras, and this hat is about as low-key as it gets. It looks like a simple hat you'd get in a dollar store, doesn't it? 

Well, the 1080p hidden camera that's built into the camera begs to differ. The front bill of the hat is where it's placed and it can record as much as two hours of high-quality footage. 

Spy Pen by SharpCam

If you're looking for office-appropriate hidden camera wearables, why not give a spy pen a chance? This simple device works as both a pen and a camera, and can be placed in a pocket without anyone thinking twice about it.

The Wearable Lifestyle Camera by Front Row is not like your typical wearable hidden cameras. This goodie is clearly a camera—sort of. This unique camera is made specifically for concerts and similar high-action situations.

Clear HD Video Camera Glasses w/ 8GB Storage

Another classic that has been rarely been truly mastered by engineers is the concept of spy glasses. SpyTec's Clear HD Video Camera Glasses are probably the best pair we've ever seen to incorporate this technology seamlessly.

You can't ever really spot the camera on this pair of glasses. When paired with the right outfit, this pair of glasses will fly right under the radar while storing up to 8GB of high definition video.
