Garmin’s new patent could change the future of fitness wearables

Garmin is working on bringing new tech to its smartwatches. The company could add OLED displays to its future smartwatches. But these could include the ability to be charged using solar energy too. According to a report, the company has filed a patent that aims to include an OLED display with a solar charging panel below the display.

The patent does not confirm that the smartwatch will go into production and a near future release. The company will work on designs eventually and work on prototypes. While Garmin does diversify its existing line of smartwatches with the screen technology, this would be a first for the company to bring both of these technologies together.
