First lawsuit filed against Apple in 2016 focuses on Watch's heart rate sensor

Just yesterday we talked about a lawsuit filed against Apple by owners of iPhones 4s, but that one was still registered in the last days of 2015. The first of this year comes from a company called Valencell Inc., which specializes in biometrics, which claims that Apple (and Fitbit!) is infringing some of its patents on the Watch's heart rate sensor.

In addition to the alleged violations themselves, Valencell has also filed an action for "breach of contract" because Apple would have downloaded documents (white papers) of your website without providing real / accurate contact information on the registration form. She was able to determine this by analyzing Apple's IP addresses in the download logs.

Valencell, which already has agreements with companies like LG and Intel, claims to have even discussed licensing its technology with Apple but that talks have not progressed until the launch of the Watch.

Here is the process, in full:

In justice, Valencell seeks a preliminary or permanent injunction that prevents the continuation of violations, in addition to compensation for damages and the payment of damages. royalties for sale if you don't get a definitive injunction (which, of course, is very unlikely).
