Microsoft is expected to enter the wearable space soon, but the company has yet to announce a smartwatch, fitness tracker, or any other sort of wearable gadget.
But Microsoft may have spilled the beans ahead of schedule by submitting a series of apps for synchronizing data between a device called the Microsoft Band and a computer or mobile device.
Update: It’s official.
According to a listing in the Mac App Store, the device has a 310 x 102 pixel display, looks more like a bracelet than a watch, and has sensors to track steps, heart rate, and sleep.
The Microsoft Band can also display notifications from your phone including email messages, text messages, phone calls, social media updates, weather, and appointments.
Details come courtesy of a Microsoft Band Sync app in the Mac App Store and a Microsoft Health app for Android in the Google Play Store.
Oh sure. Just throw privacy out the window with My Band and sell my private life to marketeers for a profit!
