Microsoft Making a Smart watch?

Rumours about Microsoft's upcoming smart watch.

Not only Apple's iWatch and Samsung's Smart watch, there will be Microsoft's smart watches too it seems. Microsoft is rumoured to be working on a smart watch, which would be a strong rival to the expected iWatch from Apple.

According to some magazine, Microsoft began collaborating with Asian suppliers in the beginning of this year, to create its own branded smart watches. As of yet, Microsoft has declined to comment on the rumours.

If the news is true, the tech world will get yet another giant to the “wearable computing” battle field. Apple, Samsung and Sony are there already. Google is currently leading it with its soon to come Google Glass. The Google Glass is getting ready for shipping, and thus we know that at least this is really true!

Microsoft Smart Watch Rumours

Though there were some successful wearable computing devices like Nike’s FuelBand products, there are so many who things that there is not that much room for growth for such a genre. So far, there has been no news breaking inventions or releases in this field.

Apple has been on the rumour mill for quite a long time now, for its iWatch. But still, only rumours prevail. There are rumours that Apple's iWatch might replace the user's smartphone even! Apple board member Bill Campbell said about iWatch that, “When you start to think about glasses or watches, they become as intimate as the cell phone was.”

Microsoft has a history of experimenting with wearable computing devices before. Microsoft introduced SPOT or the Smart Personal Objects Technology initiative back in 2004. Those watches allowed for FM radio, and news services. Though the product itself was discontinued in 2008, Microsoft’s MSN division continued to support the service that powered the devices until 2011.

Microsoft Smart Watch Rumours

Taking in to consideration all the rumours that have been spreading about Microsoft's smart watch, we can see that the rumoured device's display will be 1.5-inch, essentially, a touch screen one. Possibility for gesture/ motion control can not be neglected. There are possibilities that the device might be able to re use the same connectors used for the Microsoft Surface tablets. With these connectors, you can easily charge the watch all night, by simply placing the watch on a special tray.

How these smart watches will be working will be the relevant question here. Will they be only acting as a compact notification window for the smartphone? Or will they be of real value, that can really help us in real life situations? Only time can provide apt answers for these, we fear.

People seem like getting fed up with these rumours. If the companies are not coming up with official confirmation or the actual device itself, there will be no interested eyes when they finally release the product.
