The Apple Watch is for me one of the best Apple devices. It helps me a lot in my daily tasks and now that we are locked up at home it is a good helper to challenge me to close the circles and get some daily exercise. It does not stop improving and this new patent warns that we could see an Apple Watch with amazing materials. Liquid Metal and different polymers.
An Apple Watch made of Liquid Metal for the top model and Polymers for the rest
Apple has differentiated two models of Apple Watch from the beginning. One of the highest class made in more premium materials and others of lower quality. Now, the interior is exactly the same in each of the models, even in the exclusive Hermés.
With the new patent it is thought that high-end models may be manufactured in a new material. Nothing more and nothing less than Liquid Metal or what comes to be the same, amorphous glass. But Liquid Metal sounds better.
It is not the first time we hear that Apple is behind the use of Liquid Metal for any of your devices. We already told you a few years ago, the use to which they could put this new material.
On the lower models, different polymers would be used that would make it possible to mold better and make more specific models with more innovative designs and, most importantly, that could better absorb shocks.
The Polymer is also a cheaper component with what, I wish, we could see a basic Apple Watch A bit cheaper.
As we always say when we talk about patents, it is possible that this news don't come true but for the moment the idea is there and it is plausible, but we believe that it will take a long time for it to be released for sale, if it finally does.
