It all started with rumors that Apple is working on a smartwatch aka iWatch. Soon after reports surfaced that Google, Samsung and LG also work on a smartwatch. Now Microsoft is according to the Wall Street Journal also working on a watch.
Microsoft has already experience selling watches. It was not a success. Remember the SPOT Watches? It was back in early 2004. SPOT watches displayed real-time news via a custom radio network. SPOT watches did not communicate with phones. As with the tablet, Microsoft was again too early, if you can believe that.
As it looks like that all major smartphone players will release a smartwatch this year it will be interesting how different they will be. It could though also be the case that everybody is waiting for Apple to take the lead.
