The patent suggest that if a device's Face ID failed to unlock it, it will offering Touch ID as a fallback. The dual biometric options actually do exists on the market, Huawei's Mate 20 RS, for example, offer consumers chance to unlock their smartphone via in-screen fingerprint and 3D Face Unlock features.

Apple describes in the application that such tech could also implement into smartwatches, meaning it might be comes to the Apple Watch in the future, just imagine how cool that will be, but for now, the only method to unlock your Apple Watch is through Passcode, though it will be a challenge for them.
