Microsoft is reportedly planning to introduce its very own customized wearable fitness band.
The new fitness based watch will feature steps track, heart rate, calories burned, and other key health attributes with the help of the sensors embedded in the device and will be designed to work with almost all the mobile platforms, not only with Windows. Separate apps for each mobile operating system will be available to help support the features of the fitness band sensors.
Microsoft last wearable device, SPOT was launched in 2004 that used FM radio signals to send instant messages from Windows Messenger, news headlines, stock information, and weather forecasts to your wrist.
Rather than working more on design and other smart features, Microsoft’s new band will be primarily focused on fitness activities.
