Could this be our first look at the heavily-rumored but still unconfirmed Apple iWatch?
Recently filed with the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office, Apple is clearly think about wrist-ready technology in ways we haven’t previously considered.
“The wearable accessory device includes a flexible display coupled to a bi-stable spring,” the filing description reads. “Coupling the display to the bi-stable spring allows the accessory device to be easily worn in a number of convenient locations.”
Defining the device, however, are its two distinct parts – a touch sensitive flexible display and a solar power collector.
That’s right. The iWatch may be partially solar powered.
More of a bracelet than a traditional watch in appearance, the filing may provide our best idea yet of what the forthcoming iWatch may look like.
When rumors of an iWatch first surfaced, many Apple fans and industry analysts shrugged off the idea and doubted the authenticity of the sourced rumors. But with each passing week, more and more clues emerge to suggest that the iWatch may really be on Apple’s immediate agenda after all.
In theory, are you interested in an Apple branded wristwatch?
