Apple files for ‘Connects to Apple Watch’ trademarks

Apple has applied for a pair of new trademarks for devices that connect to the Apple Watch, Patently Apple reports. The new trademarks are presumably intended to be used to help identify third-party health and fitness accessories that are designed and certified to work with the Apple Watch, which will very likely include both the recently unveiled GymKit equipment as well as third-party health monitoring accessories like AliveCor’s KardiaBand.
The trademark application has been filed in three different classes, including Class 09 which covers “computer software in the field of health, fitness, exercise, and wellness,” Class 10 which includes “health, fitness, exercise, and wellness sensors, monitors and displays; medical apparatus and devices,” and Class 28, encompassing “fitness and exercise machines and equipment; body-building apparatus.”
