英语新闻:微软或于几周内发布可穿戴健康手环
Microsoft to launch its wearable fitness band in coming weeks

据外媒The Verge报道,来自《福布斯》杂志的消息称,微软将在未来几周内发布一款可穿戴健康手环,兼容多个平台。

据悉,微软即将推出的可穿戴产品将专注于运动健康方面,并兼具一些智能手表的功能。这款手环内置多个传感器,可搜集步数、心率、热量消耗,以及其他健康信息。目前,微软正在测试全天候持续监控心率的功能,计划使这款产品拥有两天的电池续航时间。

值得一提的是,微软可穿戴手环将支持Windows Phone、Android和iOS等平台,这也符合了微软CEO萨提亚·纳德拉的全平台战略。据了解,微软已经开始为每个系统开发独立应用,用于适应智能手环传感器中的功能。当然,这款手环也可以与手机配对显示通知信息。至于名称,微软不太可能延续Surface或Lumia的品牌。

Microsoft is planning to launch its own wearable fitness band in the coming weeks.

Forbes reports that the announcement is due "within the next few weeks," and The Verge can confirm this is accurate.

Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that the launch of Microsoft’s wearable fitness band is imminent, and the device will be stocked at retailers in time for the holiday season.

Microsoft’s wearable launch will mark 10 years since the company announced its SPOT smartwatch in 2004 that used FM radio signals to send instant messages from Windows Messenger, news headlines, stock information, and weather forecasts to your wrist.

Smartwatch features, but primarily focused on fitness

Although Microsoft’s fitness band will have some smartwatch features, it will be primarily focused on fitness activities.

We’re told the fitness band will track steps, heart rate, calories burned, and other key health attributes thanks to a number of sensors embedded in the device.

Microsoft has also been testing the ability to monitor heat rate through the day and night, and is expected to ship a final device that has around two days of battery life.

The key part of Microsoft’s fitness band will be its support for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android.

Microsoft is developing separate apps for each mobile operating system to help support the features of its fitness band sensors, and smartphone notifications to the band will also be supported.

It's unlikely that Microsoft will brand its fitness band under the Lumia or Surface monikers, mainly because the device will work across all three mobile operating systems. Images surfaced earlier this year of a fitness band in Microsoft patent filings, and previous rumours suggested the company was working on a 1.5-inch display with removable wrist bands.

With Microsoft on the verge of announcing its fitness band, we’ll find out exactly what the company has to offer in the wearables space very soon.
