It looks like Microsoft is getting all sorts of inspirational vibes from all the smartwatches that are being launched by Samsung and Sony as well. Now a recent online reports suggest that the software giant is looking forward to make the most popular Pebble smartwatch compatible with the Windows Phone devices.
As of now Pebble is only compatible with the Android and iOS devices. But Microsoft wants to change that. In fact it is the engineer Sam Stokes of Microsoft who took the initiative to this new development, which might excite the Windows Phone users to a great extent.
He has mentioned the unofficial Pebble app that already exists for Windows Phone. He also says that he spoke with a Pebble Watch engineer, and surprisingly the engineer "didn't know that the interface with Windows 8 is similar to the interface they use with the iPhone", and so Stokes will "explore the possibility of working with the Pebble Watch".
If the engineer gets to the root of the smartwatch's compatibility and makes the two devices work together, that would satiate one immensely needed feature in the Windows Phone device. Moreover, nothing better than that could happen to Windows Phone device than getting a compatible wearable device.
Android has been using the watch for a while now and even the iPhone deivces have had the opportunity to use them. Samsung and Sony on the other hand hand have their own wearable devices which are compatible with their own parent devices.
Until more information comes in regarding the Windows Phone device and Pebble smartwatch's compatibility, you will have to wait.
