Microsoft revealed a new Windows 10-powered wearable device by Trekstor described as a “B2B commercial-grade wearable for the Industry”. It doesn’t yet have a name, but it’s quite similar to a smartwatch with its 1.54-inch screen and runs Windows 10 IoT Core.

Microsoft’s opinion

Even if the device is not created by Microsoft, it looks like the tech company seems pretty excited about this particular project and how it can run Universal Windows Apps. Microsoft says it’s a secure, manageable device and leverages Microsoft Azure Cloud services such as Microsoft Cognitive Services.

Microsoft also said that such a device is going to be able to replace a smartphone in business scenarios:

  • Inventory management in retail
  • Building automation for guest services in hospitality
  • Industrial automation in manufacturing
  • Patient care in healthcare
  • Cross-industry scenarios such as fleet management, asset management, and more

Trekstor watch features and utility

The 1.54-inch TrekStor IoT wearable device features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, has plenty of storage space, plenty of battery life, and the processing power “to perform its line-of-business functions”, according to Microsoft. Its display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

Microsoft is not calling the device a smartwatch even if it resembles one. The Trekstore wearable might be more of a utility for inventory management or something similar rather than a personal smartwatch such as the Microsoft Band or the Apple Watch.

Future possibilities

All in all, this device proves that a smartwatch-type wearable powered by Windows 10 IoT Core is a great possibility. Maybe we’ll see something similar from Microsoft in the near future after Windows 10 becomes more stable.

Microsoft said that we are going to hear more about Trekstore’s wearable in the upcoming months.
