It’s no Apple Watch Ultra, but if these patents are any indication, the Apple Watch Series 9 could be just as rugged. The patent sketches appear to show a new apparatus that may include one or more transducers, along with a pathway for drying them via a tubular structure using a capillary-induced pressure gradient created by a capillary-dense material.

You can think of these capillary forces as water wicking up a paper towel, and in the semiconductor industries, similar to heat pipes being used to cool heatsinks attached to processors. The condensed vapor trapped in the heat pipes move back to an evaporator region along a wick structure by a capillary force along the interior wall.
