Nokia patents its own smart watch, or is it a bracelet?


The product pipeline of Nokia is pretty much in Microsoft's hands now, but before the buyout was announced, the Finns have apparently been working on a smartwatch of their own, keeping it trendy with the Android and iOS peeps.

Nokia's watch, however, seems a bit more sophisticated what Samsung came up with when it did the Galaxy Gear. According to the USPTO filing. Nokia's piece will be more like a bracelet of sorts, with segments that carry a small display dedicated each to a different application or function. You get to those different functions by just turning the segment you need facing up towards your eyes, if the patent application diagrams are any indication. 

Whether this will see the light of day now is anyone's guess, but it's an interesting take on the whole smart wearables puzzle nonetheless. What do you make out of this Nokia patent?
