Springfield Leather, the company that makes the straps for Apple Watch, has a patent for a way to change the way people wear their watches.
The patent, filed by Apple in September 2017, describes how it could change the look and feel of a watch strap and, in turn, its ability to protect your wrist against scratches.
Apple has yet to announce an official launch date for the product, but it’s already set to arrive in stores this summer.
The Springfield leather strap is described as “an adaptable, removable strap that adapts to your wrist to improve its function and durability.”
Apple’s patent says it “allows for flexible and easy adjustment of the watch strap by sliding the strap to your desired position, including wrist or wristband, wrist and wristband.”
The patent describes the straps as “complementary to the Apple Watch’s watch face and the strap as a single device.”
Apple is also expected to announce the iPhone X, a smartwatch that could replace the Apple watch, in September.
