Radical Apple Watch redesign makes the Samsung Galaxy Watch look boring

The Apple Watch 7 could finally get a new look after six generations of consistent design, potentially sporting a flexible wraparound display.

That’s based on a new Apple patent, discovered by MacRumors that proposes an Apple Watch design contoured to fit the wearer’s wrist. Not only would this be a radical departure from the boxy aesthetic of current Apple Watch models, but it would also offer a design that stands out from other smartwatches like the impressive Samsung Galaxy Watch 3.

While we’ve seen several Apple Watch patents before, including one for an Apple Watch with a circular dial, the above concepts seem archaic compared to this new one. The patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) shows an integrated display that folds and moves with the smartwatch strap.

Like many of the best smartwatches, the Apple Watch lets you swap out straps for a multitude of watch straps. To maintain that level of customization, the wearable in the patent allows users to switch things up with digitally customizable bands.
