The USPTO, as is its wont, revealed a trio of patent applications filed by Apple. All three were dated December 14, 2012 and all three dsealt with features that could appear on the Apple iWatch. As we told you earlier today, the wearable is in trial production, and is expected to launch this coming October. One filing revolves around sensors that are on an Apple iPhone and on a wrist-worn device...

So the first patent is (essentially) for a heartbeat sensor. This has been done before... Why are Apple trying to re-create the wheel every time just with different wording? Its all getting a bit old.

Not surprise with the naming of apple of their so called innovations . They'll just change the name and "viola" it's their invention. I would still go for conventional watches as it is more valuable overtime just like Rolex .

They are not re-creating the heartbeat sensor, they are trying to capture if your pulse rate (or heartbeat) is rising even if you are still (I haven't seen this feature on any device as of now!). Which means that something is wrong with your heart and then can notify a nearby hospital using the newly released health kit API. Don't be that biased. Who knows, it might actually save your life one day.
