The Apple Watch is a fantastic product, but like many of its peers it has a major disadvantage: autonomy. Whoever has it will already be used to having to charge it daily, but it would be much better if it were changed.
With that in mind, Apple has filed a new patent that could help solve the problem of the Apple Watch’s autonomy. In this case, the goal would be to place batteries on the smartwatch strap.
Apple Watch may receive bracelet with small batteries
The documents submitted by Apple depict a bracelet with an internal frame that can be used to place small batteries inside. Each of them will be isolated from the rest and can be easily replaced.
The charging process for these extra cells will also be done by induction, that is, wireless charging. This indicates that the charger you already have for the Apple Watch can also be used to charge your bracelet.
The connection of this irreverent bracelet to the smartwatch will be made through pins. Although the patent refers to a rubber bracelet as a vehicle for the concept, it is believed that it can also be applied to metal bracelets as due insulation.
Observing these documents, it is impossible not to link them to an attempt to improve the autonomy of the Apple Watch. I see no other goal than to include small batteries in a bracelet.
This way, Apple would not have to sacrifice the structure of its gadget to put a bigger battery in it. I could keep the cell that you currently use and complement it with this different approach.
As we always say when we look at a patent, there is no guarantee that it will materialize. We know that Apple is working on the idea, but nothing compels it to have to put this technology on the market.
