What will the iWatch look like? Apple has a number of patents relating to wearable technology, but one of their more notable patents on the matter (US Patent 20130044215) was filed in August 2011. The patent describes a device with a flexible display and bi-stable springs, allowing for two equilibrium positions. In other words, the device is akin to a slap bracelet that has the ability to be perfectly straight and to also snugly wrap around a user's wrist.
