Omni MedSci has .has filed the lawsuit in the US state of Texas, claiming that Apple willfully infringed on its patents and asking for an injunction against Apple along with damages.

Each patent refers to a wearable device that uses a light source, in some cases near-infrared LED arrays, alongside a receiver to capture non-invasive blood measurements.

Apple Watch uses similar technology to obtain the heart rate of its wearer.

"The lawsuit further notes Greg Joswiak, Apple Vice President of Product Marketing in an email dated July 14, 2016 that invited Islam to discuss the pending technology with a team at Apple," AppleInsider added.
