Dutch technology blog LetsGoDigital has just unveiled several wearable design patents for LG Electronics, including smartwatches with stylish shapes, beautifully decorated necklaces, and wireless headphones. The wearables market has boomed in recent years, but many manufacturers are still stuck with gadgets with built-in health sensors. The good news is that LG Electronics seems to want to break with the norm in order to make a strong start in the women’s fashion wear market.

In 2018, LG filed seven design patents with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) and was approved in August 2019, showcasing a variety of wearable electronic devices for women.
First of all, two smartwatches, as shown in the image above, the dial on the left is slimmer. It features a round dial and a slender strap with traditional buckles at the bottom.
The stylish LG women’s smartwatch will also feature sensors such as electrocardiogram, blood sugar and GPS, the patent says. The finished product is expected to be made with high-quality materials to stand out from the crowd.
Another women’s watch features a flat round dial with a circular border trim that blends with a metal strap on the outside. The metal crown on the right allows the user to operate more familiarly.
The woman’s smartwatch has similar features, such as electrocardiograms and blood glucose meters, and LG clearly wants to attract new targets as consumers become more focused on a healthy lifestyle, the document says.
Given that women wear more jewelry than men, LG has thought of new wearable devices that can be created for female consumers, such as the LG smart necklace with electrocardiogram and blood glucose monitoring shown above.
The pendant consists of two rings connected to each other, one large and one small, and the front is covered with crystal gemstones. Assuming older people wear this electronic device, it is important to add sign monitoring and alarm.
The company has worked with Swarovski, such as The AI Audio Device Swarovski Earset Concept, launched in 2017, so we’re not surprised by the exposure of the product.
LG has also considered relatively simple necklace designs, such as the decorative chain belt with a removable sensor module in the image above. It’s not very gorgeous in appearance, can wear ropes and uses sensors such as electrocardiogram and blood glucose monitoring on top.
Based on the detachable modular design, we suspect that the product can also be interchanged with modules for different functions (complemented by a companion smartphone app). Of course, even if you don’t use electronics, you can keep it on your chest.
The image above shows a chain-link handheld camera with a transparent outer ring that can be suspended from the neck with a lanyard. With the smartphone app, users can also take it off and put it in the distance for remote shooting.
The image above shows a women’s necklace with an integrated earbud, with a minimalist design and a thicker rope around the neck, which is expected to be made of relatively ordinary rubber.
As an audio accessory, the earbuds can be easily charged at the end of the exercise, the earbuds are secured by a magnet connection, hung in a streamlined form on their chests, or easily integrated into the ear separately.
The magnetic-absorbing wireless earbuds shown above make the look simpler. We’ve seen a lot of similar designs, and we’ll never repeat them here.
Finally, LG showed off a future-proof wireless headset design. It is not known when the above products will be available to the market.
