Samsung patents vein authentication smartwatch

Wednesday 10 February 2016 | 12:44 PM CET

Samsung has patented a smartwatch concept that envisions a sensor mounted in the wearable device that scan the back of the user`s hands.

The process would not fit in a wrist band and conduct all authentication there. Rather, it would target an authentication region on the hand and record the structure of the veins.

However, in the patent filed to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Samsung does say that the watch would have the capability to also detect the user's pulse and even their body temperature. In the patent, the OEM describes various functionalities such as personalising music lists, authenticating credit card transactions and logging in to social media.
