Meta (Formerly known as Facebook) has filed its first patent application with the World Intellectual Property Organization. Smartwatch. Looking at the official patent application published by LetsGo Digital WIPO On January 13, 2022.
The patent application shows multiple designs for smartwatches. One design has a rectangular display, while the other has a circular display. Also, both designs have a detachable display and three built-in cameras that will include a macro, a telephoto and a wide-angle lens.
This Meta smartwatch Will also come with support for other displays that can be replaced with the main display. Also, the detachable display block will display multiple camera sensors, according to the patent application.
Images from the patent application show that the display will be secured using multiple magnets placed on the base housing of the watch that will be attached to the strap.
The rounded version of the watch is also expected to come with some sort of rotatable mechanism depending on which camera users want to use. The patent application specifies that the camera must be set at 12 o’clock in order to be used, and once the camera is set at 12 o’clock the other camera will become unusable.
The smartwatch will also have some fitness and sports features including activity tracking, heart rate monitor, body temperature sensor. In addition, Meta is expected to add IR sensors, motion and other activity recognition sensors.
In the end, the smartwatch will be largely compatible with VR and AR systems.
The patent application demonstrates many interesting features about the first smartwatch of Matani. But, that sounds like too much optimism. Setting up multiple cameras on sized devices can be really complicated.
While Meta is not the most ‘noble’ brand when it comes to users’ data and privacy, setting up multiple cameras on a smartwatch will cause more concerns among users.
Meanwhile, this is just a patent, so it’s a little early to talk about all this. However, the patent application gives us an initial idea about Matani’s first smartwatch.
