Microsoft's smartwatch getting tested in New York City?

According to the source, the Microsoft smartwatch resembes the Samsung Galaxy Gear Fit. That means it has an elongated screen. And the flat display and curved backplate helps it fit tightly on the wrist. With Metro-styled icons, and a regrettably low resolution screen, the timepiece supposedly contains a number of sensors including a heart rate monitor, gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS. The device is said to use Bluetooth LE to connect to other devices.
Microsoft wants the Surface watch to support iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8, Windows, OS X, and Xbox One. It's an ambitious project to be sure, and while we'd like to think that the device was being tested in New York City, we have to take this with the proverbial grain of salt.
With E3 coming up, there is a possibility that we just might see Microsoft introduce its smartwatch real soon.

Just another typical Alan F. article that ends with a question mark. Classic.

Thes3 smart watches are focusing to much on health. Give me a smart watch that deals with things I use such as email, text, phone calls, apps etc. The gear does a little of that but need some development.
