Samsung has filed application for two smartwatch patents with U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The first patent filing talks about a smartwatch bracelet while the second is device with bendable display.
In case of the smartwatch bracelet, it includes a strap; a sensor configured to measure a position and angle at which the strap is bent; a display; and a processor configured to display a user interface (UI) element corresponding to the measured position and angle on the display. The same bracelet or wristband can be moved to the left or right to display the weather, time, distance, heart rate, and so on. The patent shows how the wristband can be used in different ways for example, one can put it around the neck and grab opposite ends of the strap.
Meanwhile, the second patent application is related to the flexible display patent Samsung was granted last month. The patent shows a flexible display on a bracelet like device that can be wore around the wrist.
