Title
(EN) AN AUXILIARY ELECTRONIC DEVICE ATTACHABLE TO A WEARABLE ELECTRONIC DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ÉLECTRONIQUE AUXILIAIRE POUVANT ÊTRE FIXÉ À UN DISPOSITIF ÉLECTRONIQUE À PORTER SUR SOI
Abstract
(EN)
An auxiliary electronic device (400), such as a portable battery pack, attachable to a wearable electronic device (100), such as a smartwatch. The auxiliary device (400) includes a housing (402), electronic circuitry within the housing (402), and an attachment mechanism configured to attach the auxiliary electronic device (400) to the wearable device (100) while the device (100) is being worn by a user. In some embodiments the electronic circuitry includes a power transmitting unit (806) that can wirelessly transmit power to charge a rechargeable battery within the wearable electronic device (100). In some embodiments the attachment mechanism includes a pair of lugs (406a, 406b) that extend, from opposite ends of the housing (402), above the housing (402) towards a center of the auxiliary device (400) and are adapted to fit within corresponding recesses (114a, 114b) of the wearable electronic device (100).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un dispositif électronique auxiliaire (400) pouvant être fixé à un dispositif électronique à porter sur soi (100). Le dispositif auxiliaire (400) comprend un boîtier (402), un ensemble de circuits électroniques à l'intérieur du boîtier (402), ainsi qu'un mécanisme de fixation prévu pour fixer le dispositif électronique auxiliaire (400) au dispositif à porter sur soi (100) tandis que ce dernier est porté par un utilisateur. Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'ensemble de circuits électroniques comprend une unité de transmission de puissance (806) qui peut transmettre sans fil de l'énergie afin de charger une batterie rechargeable située dans ledit dispositif électronique à porter sur soi (100). Dans certains modes de réalisation, le mécanisme de fixation comprend une paire d'ergots (406a, 406b) qui s'étendent, depuis les extrémités opposées du boîtier (402), au-dessus de ce boîtier (402) vers le centre du dispositif auxiliaire (400), et qui sont conçues pour se loger dans des évidements (114a, 114b) correspondants du dispositif électronique à porter sur soi (100).
