The patents revealed that these smartwatches can be controlled by moving them on the wrists. One of these smartwatches can be wraped around the wrist with its full length working as a display. Another smartwatch can be hung in unique ways.
One of the smartwatches will have two moveable straps with which the users can interact with the device by moving it around on their wrists. These straps can also help to switch the UI modes. The angle and pressure of the strap’s bend helps the user to navigate as well. This smartwatch can do multi-tasking as universal IoT device with programmable functions.
