Nokia smartwatch, and we have heard a rumor that said Nokia's smartwatch could launch in the second half of the year.

The question remains though what to expect from a Nokia wearable. Nokia's Devices and Services division will likely be transferring over to Microsoft sometime next month, as the acquisition is expected to finalize.

That could also mean that the device would not actually run Windows of any sort.
We have reached out to Daniel for clarification on the rumor, but have yet to get a response. Perhaps we'll find out more next week.

Shows how many hypocrites there are, here we have Android fanbous bashing Live Tiles when The new HTC one is basically Windows Phone Live Tiles clone. The Tiles even have theme changer just like WP, such hypocrites.
