ITC judge says Apple infringed on medical tech company Masimo’s pulse oximetry patents
Now, the ITC will decide on a possible import ban on Apple Watches with blood oxygen sensors: the Series 6, Series 7, Series 8, and Apple Watch Ultra. A final decision won’t be made until May 10th.
“We respectfully disagree with today’s decision, and look forward to a full review by the Commission,” Apple said in a statement to Reuters. Bloomberg Law, the case could give Masimo leverage to eke out $50-$300 million per year in royalties.
