Apple is possibly working on a new magnetic charging bracelet for the Apple Watch
Please make this a reality.
The Apple Watch is a great and useful device, but one of the biggest pain points with it is having to take it off every day or so to charge. Sure, it’s a minor inconvenience, but if it dies and catches you on an off day when you’re not near your charger, it can be a major drag on your day.
Luckily, a new FCC filing hints that this all may change thanks to a magnetic charging bracelet that Apple is working on for the Apple Watch.
According to the filing, the equipment is defined as a “single frequency magnetic charger enclosed in a stainless steel case with a two-pin cable bracelet” equipped with a “single inductive charging coil” which can charge the Apple Watch, according to a description in a test report published on the FCC website.
Additionally, the FCC report states that the device has a charging frequency of 326.5 kHz with a maximum power consumption of 5W when in use.
While this is all speculation at this point, having a magnetic charging bracelet for the Apple Watch would be a fantastic addition, and not to mention, it would relieve a lot of the issues charing issues Apple Watch owners face on a daily bases.
Earlier this week, Apple revealed its latest Apple Watch Series 4 which features a built-in EKG, new watch faces, and a 30% larger screen.
We reached out to Apple, but they did not immediately respond to our request for comment. We’ll update the post if we hear anything back.
