Initially, the person who was responsible for testing the device was pretty hesitant to accept that it was from Microsoft and instead said that it was a fitness band from China-based firm. However, later the person admitted that it was indeed from Microsoft.

There is hardly any evidence to prove the news, but if the source is to be believed, Microsoft smartwatch is quite identical to Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit. Thus you can assume the smartwear to come with an elongated screen. Moreover, it is said that it will come with a flat display and curved backplate that will help it fit tightly on the wrist.

In terms of features, the source says that the smartwatch will feature Metro-style icons, although the display would come with a very low resolution. Since it is said to be more of a fitness band, it probably will feature sensors like heart rate monitor, gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS. The device is said to use Bluetooth LE to connect to other devices.

What could be the best thing in the device is that it might come with a wide range of OS compatibility. According to several reports online, Microsoft is said to make the Surface watch compatible with iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, Windows, OS X, and Xbox One. This is the one and only feature that could make the device supremely popular if things turn out to pan out like it is expected. So far there is not a single wearable device that comes with multiple OS-support.


Rumor has it, that the smartwatch/fitness band could be announced at the E3.
