Microsoft's smartband could launch in October
Microsoft could be gearing up to launch its own smartband in October, according to new reports.

The smartband will reportedly feature 11 sensors and will resemble a thinner, flatter version of the Nike Fuelband rather than Samsung’s array of smartwatches and bands. The source, who spoke with Tom’s Hardware, described the interface as “slick” and mentioned that there would be open APIs.

Interestingly, the smartband is designed in such a way that the display will be on the inside of the wrist. This is so that the display is in a more natural position for checking, plus it keeps notifications somewhat reserved for the user rather than people around the wearer.

Microsoft’s smartband will be cross-platform compatible, as was previously rumoured. The device will be launched in October, according to this new report, which is later than previously expected. Naturally, Microsoft hasn’t commented on this latest report.
