Apple Watch Lawsuit: Masimo Smartwatch Trade Secret Lawsuit Ended in Mistrial

A US judge in California declared a mistrial in Masimo’s smartwatch trade secret lawsuit against Apple on Monday, as jurors failed to come to a consensus in the billion-dollar case. Following the ruling, a Masimo spokesperson expressed disappointment at the jury’s inability to reach a verdict and stated their intention to retry the case.

The Initial Lawsuit

Potential Apple Watch Import Ban

In addition to the trade secret lawsuit, Masimo has also sued Apple at the US International Trade Commission over Apple Watch imports that violate its patent rights. An ITC judge preliminarily ruled in favor of Masimo in January, potentially leading to an import ban on infringing Apple Watches if the full commission affirms the decision.

Apple is also facing another potential Apple Watch import ban from medical device maker AliveCor in a separate patent fight over heart-monitoring technology. Smartwatches, mobile devices worn on the wrist with an array of capabilities, are a lucrative market, with global sales worth tens of billions of dollars.
