Delaware Patent of the Month – January 2023

Wearable devices have become an integral part of our lives, making it easier for us to track our fitness goals, monitor our health, and stay connected. However, with the widespread use of these devices, there is a risk of damage, and components may need to be replaced. This process can be cumbersome and require the purchase of a special tool to open the device and replace the component.

AURA Devices Inc. is making a name in the wearable device industry with its patented technology for simplified disassembly. Their devices come with a unique design that allows for quick and easy replacement of components, without the need for any special tools. Simple disassembly begins with the strap, which secures the main watch housing and cover using a locking pin. By bending the strap towards the cover base, a pressure is applied which causes the hook and locking pin to disengage, effectively unlatching the housing from the cover.

This innovative technology from AURA Devices not only simplifies the replacement process but also eliminates the need for a special tool, making it more convenient and cost-effective for users. The company’s commitment to improving the wearable device industry has resulted in a product that is not only functional but also user-friendly. With the patented technology, AURA Devices Inc. is paving the way for a new era in wearable devices, making it easier and more convenient for users to stay connected and track their health and fitness goals. With expertise in the industry, AURA Devices has even designed a strap compatible with Apple watches while improving health tracking capabilities.
