Microsoft developing a Smartwatch

Written by Nick Farrell

Apple so slow that Redmond is catching up

Microsoft wants to get into the wearable computer market, with plans to offer a sensor-rich smartwatch that measures heart rate and synchs with iPhones, Android phones and Windows Phones.

While Samsung is the main rival in the market, the Tame Apple Press has been talking up the Jobs’ Mob vapourware which has yet to see the light of day. According to Forbes the device will draw on optical engineering expertise from Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect division to continuously measure heart rate through the day and night. The battery will last for two days, roughly on par with Samsung’s Gear Fit.

Word on the Street is that Microsoft could be gunning for as soon as this summer and might also been Apple, which is yet to release any hint of the toy it has planned. Microsoft’s smartwatch won’t just tie in with Windows Phone devices, but will also work with both iPhones and Android smartphones.
