Apple Watch just got slapped for a major upgrade — but there’s a nasty catch

A new patent suggests that future Apple Watches could come with the ability to detect the type of strap you’re wearing and automatically adjust the watch face to reflect that accessory.

In theory, this could mean that if you choose a refreshing Spring Green strap, your Apple Watch will adjust its face to a similar pastel hue. If you then switch to a deep red band, your smartwatch will reflect a more vibrant color. But there is a downside to this potential upgrade that will lock you in Apple’s walled garden.
