AliveCor Claims Apple Watch Infringes ECG Patents
AliveCor, health technology company and maker of connected electrocardiogram devices, seeks to ban U.S. sales of the Apple Watch. The company claims that Apple intentionally copied AliveCor’s patented technology to take an ECG reading on the Apple Watch, and to perform heart rate analysis.
In the lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, AliveCor claimed its patents are “novel, unconventional and focus on specific means and methods of using specialized sensors in a wearable device to improve upon existing cardiac monitoring technology.”
AliveCor also contends that Apple was aware of these patents when it created the Series 4, 5, and 6 Apple Watches, according to the lawsuit.
Filing the complaint with the ITC “is one step, among others, AliveCor is taking to obtain relief for Apple’s intentional copying of AliveCor’s patented technology—including the ability to take an ECG reading on the Apple Watch, and to perform heart rate analysis—as well as Apple’s efforts to eliminate AliveCor as competition in the heartrate analysis market for the Apple Watch," the company said in a press release announcing the ITC complaint.

Although I'm not a lawyer, I think science fiction fans might give some prior art credit to Arthur C. Clarke for his work on an implanted/worn CORA - COronary ALarm in Fountains of Paradise.
