Apple is trying out flexible display ideas for next-generation Apple Watch and wearables

It's called the Apple Watch, but it's going to be more of an Apple Bracelet if these newly unearthed patent drawings are anything to go by! They imply Team Cupertino is fooling around with "wearable, rollable, and foldable displays," exploring the possibilities of OLED technology while searching for the next big thing.
Apple's vision allows for unconventional approaches, including bezel-free designs and units with embedded communication modules for wireless connectivity. For now, though, the company is focused on interchangeable smart bands, such as one with a built-in glucose monitor.

The Apple Watch is a good wearable, but it's the fitness app that I like a lot on it. They just need to allow you to view total calories, and workout logs, from the watch. Good watch, with good battery life.

These things are already at the pinnacle of design and capability do to size. Any fancy features and batterylife is dismal. They are just toys at best.

To quote someone much smarter than me "Every great and transformative tech always start as a toy at the beginning." The mainframe folks thought the pc was a toy at the start. Same thought when laptop came along, same was said about the iPhone, and look where its template have gotten us. You are not the first and you certainly won't be the last.
