Another Apple Watch patent features battery-band; oddly, shows round Watch design
With multi-day battery life on the wish-list of many Apple Watch owners, it's not surprising that Apple is at least considering making a battery band available which could potentially allow the wearable to go many days between charges. This would be of particular value to those who want to use the Watch for sleep-tracking in addition to its usual duties during the day.
The company was recently granted a patent for a multi-function band that could include power, and AI has spotted a new patent application – filed back in 2015 but only published today – which deals specifically with power …
The patent describes a battery system embedded into a band which could supply power to the Watch through the existing inductive charging coils.
