Google has already been doing well in the smartwatch world and now all eyes are for Apple with the soon to be coming iWatch. And in between all this hype created for the iWatch and Android wears, Microsoft seems to have remained under the radar. Fans don’t need to be disappointed because the recent news report states that the software giant is already working on its smartwatch which is going to make its way to us in October.
There is very little information about the smartwatch at this time but word has it that Microsoft has designed something which is going to resemble a fitness band like the Nike FuelBand or Fitbit Flex. Maybe this brings a fresh change from the contemporary smartwatch designs out there like what LG and Samsung have gone with. Rumors tell us that the screen on this Microsoft smartwatch is going to be on the inside of the wrist rather than on top and we cant help but wonder about the size of this screen.
According to Tom’s Hardware, the interface is going to be quite slick but we still have to figure out whether it is going to resemble Microsoft’s popular tile-based UI a la the Windows and Windows Phone experience we’re all now familiar with. It is also being said that the watch is going to be loaded with 11 types of sensors so lets all get ready to get things measured on us.
