San Francisco, Nov 10: Apple is working towards introducing Touch ID feature in the Apple Watch, according to a patent application filed last year by the iPhone maker and recently published by the US Patent and Trademark Office. Also, to maintain the comfort of the wearer, the antenna would be able to bend, stretch and flex. Titled "Antenna Assemblies For Watch Bands", the patent application discusses technology that would allow antennas to be embedded inside a watch band.
