Apple Watch patent with an LED indicator on the strap

As you probably already know, as soon as Apple has a new idea, they tend to patent it, in order to avoid plagiarism, among other things. And, the fact is that, a new patent has recently appeared, pending approval by Europe still, in which we can see something of the most interesting.

In this case, we are talking about a strap for the Apple Watch something more intelligent than usual, because this time it would connect with the watch itself, in order to offer LED lights, with which to show notifications, events, or anything else, so that you don't need to access the clock to view the data.

This is the new Apple patent with which we would see a watch with an LED for notifications on the strap

As recently revealed by the medium Patently Apple, apparently Apple's intention would be, in the not too distant future, launch an Apple Watch with an LED indicator, which could be any geometric shape, on the strap itself, specifically on one of the sides to be able to see it from the side by, for example, having your hand resting on a surface.

Said indicator, it would be connected directly to the watch itself, so in this case we could have, without any problem at all, either a notification indicator, as is usual in Android devices for example, or a small sensor, so if necessary, even a small camera could be embedded, although it is true that for most users it would not make much sense.

Anyway, as we mentioned, at the moment this is only a patent, so we may not even get to see it, although at the moment it is the most interesting. Finally, we leave you below the complete image with a few figures from said patent, which is also quite curious:

    The Apple Watch is an iPhone remote. Now a remote comes out of the iWatch. What will be next? A ring with notifications so that we don't have to access the clock so much?
