Microsoft has not entered the smart watches segment. At least, he has not done so at the moment. The purchase of Nokia in September 2013 changed many things for the Finnish manufacturer, who had to cancel their future plans and devices that could have hit the market. And among them, oddly enough, was a smart watch.
This is indicated in The Verge, where they reveal the existence of a project with codename Moonraker. The design of this device inherited some of the properties of Nokia smartphones-like their color-but also took the Windows Phone interface to those small screens.
Nothing From Microsoft’s Smartwatch… For Now
The images discovered by the famous Evan Blass have been published in a blog on Tumblr-now unavailable-by a designer of Microsoft Pei-Chi Hsieh, and his appearanceshows that these watches were already very advanced in their development, Since the images do not seem like mere proofs of concept.
In Redmond canceled the project because it collided with its Microsoft Band , which as in the case of Moonraker had several sensors, although the latter allowed access to some advanced tasks such as reading emails or pairing to a Windows Phone mobile phone to make calls Or send text messages. The integration of Facebook and the streaming service MixRadio, in addition to the configuration of the designs of the desks ( watch faces ).
It seems that Microsoft will continue to bet on its physical activity monitoring device and the second generation of its Band is expected to appear somewhat after Windows 10 is present. It is unclear if the Satya Nadella company will make its entry into this segment In which for now no one has managed to convince us that the smart clock is the next revolution, but this Nokia proposal seemed to be going the right way.
