Another big name in the tech industry that’s showing interest in the development and production of wearable technology is Microsoft with reports about the Redmond-based company’s intention of developing its own smartwatch.

According to reports, Microsoft is planning to ship components from Asia to build a touch-enabled watch device. The company has reportedly been in touch with an undisclosed number of suppliers. However, it’s still not sure whether Microsoft will push for the development of such device, because for all we know, the company may just be testing the possibility of making another smartwatch.

The company had previously attempted to create a similar product called SPOT (which stands for Smart Personal Object Technology) but became unsuccessful despite partnerships with known watch brands such as Fossil, Suunto, Tissot and Swatch.

Nevertheless, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Microsoft’s second attempt into the wearable technology business would be different compared to its SPOT project especially now that the technology is gaining consumer interest and other big companies including Google, Samsung and Apple are reportedly making smartwatches of their own.
