Top designers back Apple in Samsung patent appeal

Top designers back Apple in Samsung patent appeal”

This isn't so surprising since Apple Watch owns 72 percent of smartwatch market; Samsung is in second place with measly seven percent of market share. As Business Insider notes, in a patent filed in January, Samsung included illustrations that look virtually identical to the Apple Watch.

Apple/USPTOSamsung had a smartwatch on sale before Apple did, but it still seems like the Korean giant is taking cues from its rival in Cupertino. In fact, some of the line drawings nearly look as if they have been line-traced from actual Apple Watch renders depicting the device from multiple angles.

Samsung's patent describes the images as: "Views illustrating diverse shapes, structures, and materials of a first strap portion or a second strap portion in a wearable device according to an embodiment of the present disclosure". The proposed figures include Apple's digital crown and some of its band designs. Samsung's devices don't look like this, but Apple's do.

The US Patent and Trademark Office recently granted a patent to Samsung, which details new mechanisms for smartwatch bands.
