It seems like every other day some other tech company is announcing that it will be coming up with its own smartwatch this year.
Well, Microsoft doesn’t seem to be any different. The tech giant has been rumoured to be working on its very own version of the smartwatch. However, there is something that makes this version one to watch: cross-platform compatibility. Cross-platform compatibility permits applications written to use it to run on all of the systems that it supports, if the application does not use any operating system-specific programming in addition to it. Reports have confirmed that this is true.
The Microsoft smartwatch will also feature 11 sensors inside the device and it will continuously monitor the user’s heart rate and sync all data to user’s devices. What also makes this smartwatch from the tech typhoon stand out is that the display of the watch will be on the inside of the wrist, making it more natural to check the watch. It will also have a longer form-factor similar to the Samsung’s Gear Fit. The interface is to be ‘slick’ and sophisticated.
The smartwatch has yet to have its name updated but its debut is set to be in October. We can’t wait to see how this version will stand out among the already crowded list of other similar devices this year.
