Microsoft is rumored to come with the Samsung Gear S killer - its own branded smartwatch that will be compatible with multiple platforms, including iOS. It will be a cross-platform watch, if rumors are to be believed.
Back in June, Forbes reported that Microsoft was preparing an intelligent watch with the ability to track your heart rate and sync the data to your companion device.
While the Surface Pro 3 maker has yet to share crucial details around the watch, designer Deani Hansen from Denmark has already imagined what a Microsoft-branded watch will look like while posting several concept images on Behance.
Hansen sees the software giant creating a square shape watch, similar to the LG G Watch. The crazy watch will have many special features that make it a leap ahead than existing smart watches. Notably, Microsoft will give special emphasis on the user interface (UI) of the Windows-powered watch.
The device will have transparent square tiles, highlighting apps and services. The watch will support Cortana digital voice assistant, Nokia HERE maps and Skype. It will also offer notifications and access to messages. Like any other modern day timepiece, the Microsoft Windows Watch will indeed offer health /fitness-centered features.
According to recent reports, Microsoft could launch the watch within the next few weeks. The product will be a health centric device. It would have a 2-day battery life.
Concept images of the Microsoft Windows Watch imagined by Deani Hansen follow below. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
