Apple Watches Face Christmastime Ban Over Patent Dispute

Apple could see one of its leading products barred from being imported into the United States sometime around Christmas unless the White House steps in or a patent dispute is resolved.
The U.S. International Trade Commission ruled last week that specific models of the Apple Watch breach patents held by the medical gadget designer Masimo.
The company now has 60 days either to resolve the matter or face an outright ban. The current patent series, as they stand, only apply to Apple Watch models from the Series 6, 7, 8 and 9 collections since they contain the medical trackers that appear to resemble Masimo’s patents.
