Description
"On Thursday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that relates to a wearable self-mixing interferometry (SMI) ring that could be used to sense physiological conditions of a user, such as a heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, blood pressure and more. In some embodiments, the ring could support an OLED display with indicator lights. The ring could be a health device that's an alternative to Apple Watch to some degree. And while we're on the topic of health devices, Apple was also granted a patent for the ECG feature for Apple Watch."
