Apple's Lawsuit Increases Fresh Criticism Over Heart Rate Sensor In Apple Watch

Apple Watch Heart Rate Sensor in Question After A fresh Lawsuit Against The Company

Apple\'s Lawsuit Increases Fresh Criticism Over Heart Rate Sensor In Apple Watch

Things are really not rolling down in the right direction for the tech giant Apple. Omni MedSci (the health technology startup) has lodged a fresh complaint against Apple. The company claims that Apple is infringing on the patented technology in Apple Watch heart rate sensor, which seems to be the violation of some of the copyrights registered earlier. Both the companies came up together in the year 2014 and stayed in contracts until 2016 after which things get really messed up.

The two years contract stayed quite well for both of the companies but Apple ultimately ended the partnership discussion after two years. Even after ending the partnership discussion Apple allegedly used Omni MedSci patented technology after which the company filed a lawsuit against the tech giant. The case is presently lodged with the Eastern Texas District Court. 

Omni has four patents on the wearable optical technology. They are capable of measuring, analyzing, and monitoring physiological attributes. The technologies specifically are designed, as described by patents-in-suit for measuring different parameters of a user’s blood using LED-based sensors. These techniques are used in wearable watches to measure patient’s body conditions. 

Each patent in reference to a wearable device uses a light source, near-infrared LED arrays (in some cases) along with a receiver module that works to capture non-invasive measurements of blood. In case of Apple, the technological giant utilizes the similar technique in order to obtain the heart rate of users wearing the Apple Watch. 

The patents were invented by Islam and assigned to Omni, US Patent Nos. 9,651,533 and 9,757,040 were granted in 2017, while other U.S. Patent including the Nos. 9,861,286 and 9,885,698 were issued in 2018. 

According to the lawsuit "We [Apple] don't wish to receive any information about any of your IP [Intellectual Property]," O'Reilly said. 

As per the document, several meetings were conducted with Dr. Michael O’Reilly, a technological expert (medical) who became a part of Apple earlier that year and hardware manager Michael Hilman to discuss on the patent the company then having. During the meetings, several patents were changed to include “wearable devices” and “LED” lights in the document source. 

Whatever be the situation, Apple is in great trouble for now.
