Microsoft Smart Watch: Pursue the Future or Just Follow Like Sheep?

As the wearable electronics become more and more popular, it is said that Microsoft is working on a touch-enabled smart watch on the heels of Apple, Google and Samsung.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft has “asked suppliers in Asia to ship components for a potential watch-style device”. And the report also said the smart watch will feature a 1.5-inch display. However, whether Microsoft will move ahead with the smart watch is still unclear.

Is the word ready for a smart watch? As we know that Microsoft has released a smart watch in 2004, which displayed calendar notifications, news headlines, sports scores through its MSN Direct software. But it seemed a less-than-successful smart watch for it was stopped in 2008. However, if smart watch will be the next big event in tech world, Microsoft apparently doesn’t want to be left behind.

The wearable devices may become the next world-wide electronic equipments. Since the released Android-oriented wearable Google glasses and Apple’s iWatch which to be released, creating its own wearable devices to redefine the users’ experience has become a necessary trend for Microsoft.

Yes, Microsoft doesn’t have the superior internet service of searching and data as Google. And it couldn’t compare with Apple’s almost perfect hardware. However, it doesn’t mean Microsoft’s wearable smart phone has no way out. It has its own advantages like its acclaimed Windows operating system and Xbox devices, etc. can make a way for it in today’s technologically driven society.
