Apple is working on a self-tightening Apple Watch strap

There's no indication when this tech could find its way into the next Apple Watch, but given the Cupertino-based firm just released a third-generation Apple Watch full of iterative upgrades, Apple may want something a little more headline-grabbing for the next Apple Watch version. The patent, which was first filed back in 2015, was spotted by AppleInsider when it was finally approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Apparently the idea is that the band for your Apple Watch will adjust to the size of your wrist, either automatically or by tinkering with a setting. Like them this too could be a reality soon.

Additionally, Apple aapl explained how some smartwatch users prefer a tight-fitting wristband during exercise, but a looser band in other situations.

Apple was recently granted a patent for the self-tightening strap which it describes as being a "dynamic fit adjustment for wearable electronic devices".

NewLink Genetics Corporation (NLNK) Analyst Recommendation
Short traders are feeling a little more bearish on shares of the company of late if you evaluate the increase in short interest. Moving averages can help smooth out these erratic movements by removing day-to-day fluctuations and make trends easier to spot.

Obviously, this is just a patent for now, with no actual proof that Apple will build the self-adjusting bands into an actual product you can buy.

As well as being important for comfort and convenience, a self-adjusting band would also help the device's sensors gather accurate health and fitness information, as poorly fitted wearables typically harvest equally poor data.

This is still at the patent stage so when or even if it comes to Apple Watch remains to be seen. Additionally, the filing does not specifically mention the company's Apple Watch in relation to the proposed wristband technology.
