Bureau of patents and trademarks U.S. has published information on new patent of Apple. It describes new control methods of Apple smart watch. In particular, gestures that can help to activate some functions.
According to the authors of the patent, the existing methods of interaction with the Apple Watch is not very convenience. This is noticeable in some situations. For example, when the user can’t do multiple taps on the screen or to rotate the Digital Crow. For this reason, Apple engineers have thought of alternative management options.
The proposed method is based on the analysis of the movement of the hand where the watch is. Using built-in sensors, the Apple Watch will need to determine the angle of the hands, and muscle tension. As a result, users will be able to activate some functions, clenching and unclenching his fist.
To reduce the number of false positives engineers offer to place on the display indicator. If the scale is filled to the end – the action will be completed.
