You know what they say: you cannot have too many smart gadgets, and although all major tech companies have released at least one smart wearable device, not all tech giants have one available on the market. The latest tech rumors talk about a new Microsoft smartwatch that is scheduled for release in the coming weeks.
The upcoming Microsoft smartwatch will supposedly have a heart rate monitor and will be compatible with most smart mobile devices. It will also have a battery that lasts more than two days if used regularly. If the battery life rumor turns out to be true, then the Microsoft smartwatch will be better than the popular smartwatches available on the market at the moment, the Moto 360 or the Samsung Galaxy Gear, which need to be charged every day. The new Microsoft smartwatch is said to be launched around the holiday season, a marketing strategy everyone seem to embrace. Apple planned their smartwatch around the same season but it got delayed until the first part of 2015.
We first found out that Microsoft was working on their own smart wearable device back in May and it was said that the new smartwatch will work with Android, iPhone and Window Phone. We don’t know any further details like how it’s going to be called or how much it will cost. A Microsoft smartwatch could be the beginning of a new chapter for the company, meaning that they are willing to plunge in new tech categories, and the wearable category is the future of smart devices.
If the rumors are real and the Microsoft smartwatch comes with a battery that lasts for two days, it could mean a lot for Microsoft. Battery life is one of the most important aspects of wearable devices and Microsoft could hit the jackpot with their upcoming smartwatch.
Further details regarding the upcoming Microsoft smartwatch are still unknown and Microsoft hasn’t made any official statements but as soon as we find out any further news we will keep you posted.
What do you think of the upcoming Microsoft smartwatch? Do you think it can compete with the other smart wearable devices on the market?
