    On the latest episode of Marvel Agents of Shield, the characters are seen constantly using their smartwatches. Given that Microsoft must be sponsoring the show (they all use Windows phones and surface pro 3's), maybe this is a leaked first look at Microsoft' smartwatch. It is more of a band, like the rumors say, and have the flat, metro design. I can't seem to find a picture on the internet, but if someone can find one, what do you think?

    Usually, they have green screens on the watches so that the effects are applied later

    True, but that doesn't mean they couldn't have put the interface for the Microsoft watch on afterwards

    What I was trying to say was:
    The hardware? Possibly.
    The UI? Less possibly.

    I see, it is a little bit of a long shot, but whatever it ends up as, I hope to see it soon.

    If Microsoft released a smartwatch that was affordable and fully integrated with Cortana on your phone, displayed notifications, and allowed you to do simple tasks then I would consider it. It cannot be expensive otherwise it wont sell. Even a simple hardware button to launch Cortana easily so bumping it doesn't activate it or voice activation "Hey Cortana", would be great.

    That's why I'm not getting the Apple watch. The watch part of the smartwatch is as good as the hardware clock. If Microsoft fine-tuned the clock, my money would literally jump to the counter.

    I've seen in several locations the episode was sponsored by fitbit and that it is possibly fitbit's new PurePulse device which will be coming out some day in the future. Fitbit hasn't really announced anything to the public about any new devices, but based on all I read, that is what Skye is wearing.

    The fitbit one sounds likely, I don't think I ever noticed fitbit sponsoring the show

    Is it possible that Microsoft and Fitbit are doing a joint venture here? Is this why Apple stopped selling Fitbit products, and not Oley because of the iWatch?

    That's interesting, Microsoft making the software but partnering with fitbit and others for the hardware?

    Yeah, and the brand recognition and existing customer base.

    That would be really smart of Microsoft to do, I would buy a fitbit running 'Windows Wear' or whatever else they may call it. I wonder if this would mean they couldn't make their own Surface of Lumia branded watch though.

    I don't think so. I believe the Fitness wear and smartwatch should offer different things and different price points. My beef with both he Android watches and iWatch are that they do not do anything additional or better than my phone. In other words, besides a fad, what is the value prop? I don't see one. If Microsoft sticks with fitness wear until they can offer a clear advantage, I believe that is the way to go.

    Looks like a ladies version (slimmer) of the Fitbit Surge...

    Personally, I'm quite looking forward to this MS wearable given the somewhat lacklustre support for wearables on WP now (*cough* Pebble *cough*)

    I sure hope Microsoft has 2 designs for wearable. As the long thin one shown here may be good for people into fitness, but it reminds me of the 70's ID bands that were all the rage.
    For us older and not so in shape people we a more classic design...something for everyday.
