Another key point of difference is that the display is said to be on the inside of the wrist, rather than on the outside, making it natural to look at the device. The software giant are rumoured to have gone with a slim band designer, similar to the Nike Fuel band, rather than the more traditional square watchface design popular as of late. The Microsoft smartwatch will have 11 sensors, and use similar technology to the Kinect.
