In United States banned sale of latest smart watches Apple

The US has banned the sale of Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Apple Watch Series 9, the latest models of smart watches of the American technological giant Apple.

The US Presidential Administration Joe Biden refused to impose a veto on the decision of the American International Trade Commission (USITC) on the ban on the sale of Apple Watch smart watches in the country with the function of measuring the level of oxygen in the blood that violate the patent. The head of the White House could impose a veto on the USITC decision until December 25th.

We are talking about the Apple Watch watch, which uses the technology of measuring the level of oxygen in the blood. The California company Masimo, engaged in medical monitoring technologies, filed a lawsuit about violation of patent rights.

The US Trade Representative (UNITED STRADE Representative, USTR) recalled that the USITC revealed a violation of two patents of American companies Masimo and CercACACOR Laboratories.

After careful consultations, it was decided that the USITC resolution would not be canceled and from today it has become final, it follows from the message.

The representative of Apple said that the company appealed the ban in the appeal of the US Federal District in Washington.

The company asked for a ban at the ban at least until the US Customs and Border Service will decide whether the versions of its Masimo patents are violated. Customs must make its decision on January 12, the company said.

usitc, which oversees international trading disputes, in October ruled that Apple Watch violates one of the patents for a pulsoximeter belonging to Masimo.

Earlier, December 18, Apple reported that she suspended the sales of her Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 with this function in the USA.

It was stated that the dispute would not affect the model of smart watches that are not able to read the level of oxygen in the blood, such as the cheaper Apple Watch SE model from Apple.
