A cardiologist at the University of New York sued Apple, claiming it uses Apple Watch technology. On Friday, December 27, reported the agency Bloomberg.
“Dr. Joseph Wiesel, who teaches at the New York Medical School, filed a lawsuit against the technology giant in a federal court in Brooklyn on Friday,” the report said.
Wiesel is confident that Apple is using its patented heartbeat tracking method in its watches, and intends to receive compensation for this.
Thanks to the sensor on the back, the Apple Watch can monitor your heartbeat and detect heart rhythm disturbances.
It is noted that Wiesel contacted Apple in September 2017 and even provided detailed information about his patent, but the company ignored his attempts, and he decided to go to court.
On December 16, it became known that the international human rights organization IRAdvocates filed a class action lawsuit against technology companies Apple, Alphabet (the parent company of Google), as well as Tesla, Dell and Microsoft in connection with the death of children in cobalt mines in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Cobalt is needed for the production of lithium-ion batteries.
