While Microsoft has halted production of its Band 2 fitness tracker, taking a step back from tech wearables production doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing the Band 3. But new leaked images have resurfaced on the web, igniting a wave of excitement in Microsoft’s consumer base. It looks like the Band 3 isn’t as far off an idea as we once thought it was, with leaked pictures showing off a waterproof band.

Although unconfirmed by Microsoft,  it would be safe to say that Microsft is certainly going out of their way to make its next-gen fitness tracker stand out from their contemporaries.

The pictures do give us a glimpse of what features the device may sport. The device looks very much like the previous Band 2 device, a downside since the device was not easy to wear and had a bizarre design that didn’t go well with many outfits. Another rumor persisted that the Band 3 would feature interchangeable bands but looking at the pictures, we don’t really see how. What we do see is a new clasp mechanism. Another hidden aspect is the potential for a buggy product, as well.

According to the original poster, FUD Hater, the latest fitness tracker was planned to feature a waterproof design, blood pressure tracking and radio frequency identification (RFID) support. The pictures also highlight a swimming tile which reinforces the potential for a waterproof design.

There also is an advanced mechanism embedded: A heart rate tracker, achieved by the embedded EKG designed for Band 3.

It is a shame Microsoft has decided not to get their hands into health tech industry anymore (Residual hope died with its termination of HealthVault), as we did have high hopes from Microsoft to emerge on a Health platform. We do hope the speculations prove to be untrue as the software giant clearly has some great ideas. Maybe we will see the next generation Band 3 after all and Microsoft will leave us all surprised.
