Microsoft might be working on own smartwatch

US tech giant Microsoft is likely interested in developing an own brand smartwatch, Asian sources have declared.

Apparently the software company has asked Asian suppliers to ship components for a potentially touch-enabled smartwatch device with the whole thing going as far as Asian company representatives having a meeting with Microsoft’s own research and development team in Redmond, Washington. At the moment however it is unclear whether the company will commit staff and money to develop such a device.

With PC sales sinking and Windows 8 failing on the market Microsoft might be forced to enter other markets in order to keep its influence on the digital world where it reigned unchallenged for decades. Even if it releases a smartwatch Microsoft will have to compete with giants like Apple and Samsung – and success is not guaranteed.
