Microsoft’s smartwatch to arrive in October

Microsoft Smartwatch from patent images

After Google smartwatch announcement during the company’s I/O 2014, it didn’t take long for Microsoft rumors to surface about its own smart watch. We still have yet to see any leak image or more solid information about the technical specifications, but thanks to a new report from Toms Hardware, we know now that Microsoft’s wearable may arrive in October, this year.

Previously information came from Forbes, who indicated that the smartwatch will work on all major phones, including: Windows Phone, iPhone, and Android. It will be able to monitor heart rate 24/7, and battery it’s said to last 3 days without recharging. The new information details that Microsoft’s wearable device will feature a slimmer design to what we’ve seen so far from Android Wear (Samsung Gear Live, LG G Watch, and Motorola Moto 360) and it’ll feature eleven different sensors.

Although, there isn’t any leaked image just yet, the report also suggest that the display is on the inside of the wrist as opposed to the outside.
