Apple iWatchRecently, Apple placed a patent application for a wearable video gadget that includes a flexible touch display along with a “slap bracelet” mechanism, possibly named iWatch.

Also most of these items serve to protect the sensitive touch screens and maybe support the gadgets in a few specific orientations.

According to reports by AppleInsider, the file describes a device boasting a flexible touch screen attached to a conventional slap bracelet mechanism, in which a steel made bi-stable spring would be placed wrapped up in a fabric made covering. The device comes with a heat seal feature. The logic board, battery and other parts are fitted on the other end. Patent details also indicate to Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connectivity options for providing real time information and connecting with other devices.

The slap bracelets were a huge craze in the late 1980s and in the early ’90s. Later several injuries were reported stating the bracelets as the cause following a ban. But Apple is planning to use Velcro or actual snaps in the attachment points.
