Microsoft Surface watch specs leak in dubious fashion

Microsoft Surface Watch spotted in NYC with leaked details on the watch ahead of official unveil

Sometimes new gadgets turn up in the strangest places before they are actually announced. A perfect example is the time when an unreleased iPhone was found in a bar after a drunken Apple employee left it on a bar stool. A report is making the rounds that a gadget writer happened to be in New York City walking around when he ran into a person testing the Microsoft Surface watch.




That is hard to believe, but not much harder than believing an unreleased iPhone could be found in a random bar. The person wearing the watch originally tried to say it was a random wristband from China before spilling the beans according to the report.


First thing to note is that the image here is said to be a parody, but the watch has an elongated form factor along the lines of the Fitbit One or Galaxy Gear Fit. The icons are said to have been in flat Windows 8 style. The watch uses Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy. The person who saw the watch says that the screen had low resolution. Lots of sensors were inside the watch including a heart rate monitor, accelerometer, gyroscope, GPS, and a galvanic skin response sensor in the watchband. Only time will tell if these leaks are correct.
