Apple has had great success in the wearable business through Watch, the most popular smartwatch in the world. However, it seems that the iPhone maker is working on another type of wearable.

Based on a patent given to the company by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the tech giant from Cupertino made a new type of wearable. The patent title says ‘Devices, methods, and user interfaces for wearable electronic ring computing devices.’

A Closer Look to Apple’s Wearable Ring

The technology patent is related to rings with touch screens that include processors, rechargeable resources, and wireless transceivers.

With rings worn on one finger, finger tap, voice command or hand gesture can be used to control actions on other devices such as the iPhone or iPad. In other words, this Ring will not be a standalone product.

As it said in the patent, after holding the iPhone or iPad for some time, the user’s hands or arms can get tired. In addition, the light released by touch screen devices may be inappropriate in certain social environments or even dangerous.

As quoted from Phone Arena, Friday (10/18/2019), the company believes that the use of rings as stated in the patent will be more efficient, safe, and ergonomic for consumers to interact with touch screen devices.

Before Apple, Amazon apparently had already presented a ring-shaped wearable. This new Wearable from Amazon is called Echo Loop.

The ring, called the Echo Loop, provides most of the same functions as a smart speaker. Ring users can open the Alexa application and set the phone number to be called by double-clicking the action button.
