By Vivek

Although there are several smartwatches and fitness gears that have been launched until now, wearable market is still at a nascent phase. However, it is gradually being pushed to a new level. When Samsung launched the Gear S smartwatch just recently, most believe, it should be the second phase of growth in smartwatch making. Not to mention that it is Samsung's 6th wearable device.

In the meantime, a fresh news has arrived courtesy of Forbes, which suggests that even Microsoft will be joining the immaturely crowded wearable market.

The report further tells that the device will be capable of working across multiple mobile platforms such as Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating systems and sport battery charges that last more than two days with regular use.

In fact, there were slight rumors of Microsoft being involved in the smartwatch affairs since April 2013. Then, it was reportedly said that the company was searching for the apt components for the wearable device in Asia.

However, Microsoft wouldn't make a smartwatch, a device capable of making calls like the the Gear S from Samsung. The company is said to keep its focus only in the health element and if earlier reports are to be banked upon, than you can expect the device to resemble Gear Fit largely. Thus, you can already imagine the presence of health tracking hardwares like the heart rate monitor, pedometer, and sleep tracking.


Another unconventional yet new gossip about the Microsoft smartwatch is that it is said to be worn with the screen at the inwards-side of your wrist.

Anyways, these are the early rumors that have arrived and surely, new developments is bound to take place. GizBot will keep you updated about the matter. Until then stay tuned to us!
