Microsoft “Xbox team” testing smartwatch, claims to be in “prototype phase”

Alex Co of Pixel Enemy writes
"It’s been alleged before that Microsoft wanted to release a “Joule” heart rate monitor for use with the Xbox 360, but for unknown reasons, Microsoft scrapped this idea and has since moved on to its smartwatch concept." (Dev, Industry, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

This is so you can be always on time

:p
Eldyraen  +   522d ago
You need some parantheses--"always on" time. I got what you meant though ;)
KaBaW  +   522d ago
Just to give you a heads up.. those " " are called quotations.
Parentheses are the ( ) signs. Just bein a helpful hand. :D
Eldyraen  +   521d ago
@Kabaw: Thanks, been awhile since had to actually think about one or the other and stupid mistake ;) Even more so when I think about it as whole reason its called a "quote".

I wish MS would focus on developing great in-house exclusive core games rather than working on watches, VR glasses, Illumiroom, and other such nonsense.

Oh perhaps the lack of core titles from MS over the last few years, that's all!
Knight_Crawler  +   522d ago
You but when MS smart watch sells millions and Sony brings out a similar watch for the PS4 then you fanboys will start screaming that Sony did first and MS copied -_-
hazelamy  +   522d ago
why turn this into some fanboy thing?

if you're looking for fanboys, i suggest you start your search at the nearest mirror.
maniacmayhem  +   522d ago
I guess you haven't heard that they are working on titles plus maybe these features to enhance your gaming experience.

But glass half empty I guess.
JBSleek  +   522d ago
LOL You act like Microsoft only business is the console market. get out of here.

@WickedLester

Amazing how you haven't included in your troll how you ms is wasting time and resources making windows for pc's. I mean it's fine that sony can make TV's, headphones, the vita, etc. Guess you can wait for your next troll to include to that one on the list.

Apple wanna b, that's why the cable box hasn't been announced yet,
biRdy  +   522d ago
The more the better if this is true, then we will have 3 options for smart watches, that is if they are actually worth buying.
southernbanana  +   522d ago
Why would they want to be like Apple? Microsofts products have been better the past couple of years even though they are less popular....
HammadTheBeast  +   522d ago
But Window's phones suck. I hate Iphone's, but they're much better than ugly tiles and the Metro look,
southernbanana  +   522d ago
@hammand I doubt you have used a Windows Phone. The only thing better about the ipad is it's popularity.
hazelamy  +   522d ago
walking down the street, somebody asks me for the time.
"you got the time?"

"yeah", i reply, "it's" i look at my windows watch, "e47... apparently" o_O

^_^
Kran  +   522d ago
I'm down for that... so long as I don't have to actually be connected to the internet/3G/4G to tell the time :)

I noticed the same ppl like "knight Krawler", "Kayle", etc... always saying the same %hit over and over about "i bet if Sony did this and that blahhhh blahh blahhh" its so %ucking cliche and corny already just stfu my god. There are some annoying ppl on this site and contrary to what ppl say there are as many xbox fanboys as Sony ones running around.

Must everything on here be Sony versus Micro or Nintendo?
