The radical redesign of the Apple Watch makes the Samsung Galaxy Watch look boring

The Apple Watch 7 could finally get a new look after six generations of consistent design, possibly with a flexible wraparound screen.

That’s going through a new Apple patent noted by MacRumors that proposes an Apple Watch design that fits the wearer’s wrist. Not only would this be a radical departure from the square aesthetic of current Apple Watch models, but also provide 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, previous concepts seem archaic compared to this new one. The patent filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) shows off an integrated display that bends and moves with the smartwatch strap.

Like many of the best smartwatches, the Apple Watch lets you change the bands with a wide variety of watch bands. To maintain that level of personalization, the wearable in the patent allows users to change things up with digitally customizable bands.
