Reports suggest Microsoft is next to join the smart watch race

Reports suggest Microsoft is next to join the smart watch race

Microsoft is rumoured to be developing its own smart watch after talks with an undisclosed number of suppliers who have apparently been tasked with delivering components for a smartwatch-like device that supports touch input.

The range of smart watches already available in the market are shown to have several purposes, for example: Nike’s FuelBand measures physical activity, while others (such as Pebble) are intended to supplement functions of a smartphone, such as receiving text messages, taking photos or checking the weather.

However with the smart watch market proving to be a tough one to crack, we will have to keep a close eye of Microsoft to see if there is any truth in the rumours.
