Soon after the Google I/O 2014 brought a pair of wearable devices from LG and Samsung into a major highlight, most of the other smartphone makers from around the world are now planning to bring their entry in the wearable market.
Late last week, Asus also came up to the news headline which suggested that the company is also planning to come up with the wearable device powered by Android Wear from Google.
But at the moment, one of the most important software player, Microsoft is also reportedly said to join the league. However, it is obvious that the company would be using Android or even the Android Wear in its timepiece.
According to the online reports, the smartwatch that Microsoft is planning to bring in the market soon will carry 11 sensors. Thus, like most of the wearable devices out there in the market, this one will also be capable of readings heart rates, and send the information wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet.
Moreover, what sounds even better is that it will support multiple platforms. Sources familiar with the matter reportedly said that it has open APIs, and will work on iOS, Android and Windows Phone. On the hard-to-believe part, it is said to feature a display on the underside of the band. The reasoning is, some of the watch-wearers do find it easier to turn your palm up to check time.
To be precise, Microsoft is reportedly said to take up a design similar to a fitness band, rather than a LG G Watch's squarish or Moto 360's circular face. It is more in a line of Nike Fuel band's design.
Although, it is not sure, but rumor has it that the Microsoft smartwatch could see the light of the day sometime in October.
