A round Apple Watch isn't totally out of the question

Apple Watch Round Circle A round Apple Watch isn't totally out of the question

It was first filed in January 2016, about eight months after the original Apple Watch launched.

Even though Apple was granted the patent, it doesn't guarantee that Apple will use the design.

If there's one thing (okay, one of the things) that divides people over the Apple Watch, it's the design.

Two of the inventors listed on this invention include Nicholas Treadwell, Product Design Engineer who came to Apple via Yamaha personal watercraft and General Electric as a rotating parts design engineer; James Stryker, Manager Product Design at Apple who came to Apple via Esko Bionics.

However, as Patently Apple notes, that doesn't appear to be the case.

It would therefore be desirable to be able to provide improved displays such as circular displays or other displays with curved edges, ' the patent reads. So this isn't a rejected design after the fact, it's a purposeful engineered solution to make a round interface work for Apple Watch should Apple ever decide to bring this to market. Due to a smaller pixel count and irregular shape, Apple explains a way to mitigate "inefficient use" of the display area by reducing "bottleneck regions". Similarly, there's no way to tell when a circular Apple Watch would launch. They both pre-date the release of the first, non-round Apple Watch devices, so Apple might have changed its mind after registration.

None of which means Apple necessarily plans to make one. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen, but what do you guys think?

Specifically, the patent describes ways to get around the technical challenges of creating pixel arrays for devices with curved edges - one of the reasons why most mobile devices have rectangular screens. And since we are discussing patents that could be employed for Apple's rumored AR specs, we should remind you that last month the company received a patent for an eye-tracking system designed for the device that could be called "Apple Glass".
