Microsoft's smartwatch rumored to be compatible with iPhone, Android and Windows Phone

Microsoft

While Microsoft has yet to make anything official on the wearables front, we've seen plenty about their rumored smartwatch lately. From what we've seen so far, their offering will be a slim design that offers a slew of fitness features and also has a removable watch body that fits snuggly into a companion charging/sync dock.

According to Forbes, Microsoft's watch may also be cross-platform by supporting Windows Phone, Android and iOS devices — something that not many current smartwatches can claim. The report also says that the smartwatch will continuously monitor your heart-rate and will run for two days on a single charge.

The race is on in the "big name" smartwatch game. Android Wear is coming in a few months and Apple is expected to announce their own smartwatch in the fall, so Microsoft will have to get moving if they want to be a part of the action later this year.

That would be awesome. I use Microsoft services but use an iPhone because of the mobile ecosystem.
