According to Thurrott’s article, the Microsoft wearable isn’t technically a watch, it will actually be a fitness wristband featuring around eleven different sensors designed to track heart rate, calories burned, and steps. Also the fitness band will support phone notifications, similar to what we’re seeing today on other smartwatches. As I previously mentioned, unlike other platforms, Microsoft’s wearable will be compatible with all major smartphones, including Windows Phone, Android, and Apple’s iOS, and this could be a major advantage of Microsoft to dominate this emerging market. Although, we still in the dark about how the fitness band from the software giant will look like, recent patent filing show images of the device looking a lot like a fitness band.

Pricing, according to the report, suggest it could be around $199 and it could be arriving in the last quarter of 2014.
