Microsoft will reveal a fitness tracker in the coming weeks

Microsoft will unveil a fitness wearable within the next few weeks, according to a report published by Forbes. Forbes' source suggests the tracker will monitor the user's heart-rate, work with iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices, and boast a two-day battery life.

The two-day battery life alone would distinguish Microsoft's wearable from devices such as the Moto 360, Samsung Gear S and LG G Watch, which need to be charged roughly once a day. The Apple Watch will also likely need to be charged nightly.

While the device is expected to have a focus on health, and feature up to 11 different sensors, it  will still be able to receive smartphone notifications. 

It is unclear how much Microsoft's wearable will cost, but it will reportedly be available in time for the holiday season.
