REDMOND, WA -- Microsoft announced today the release of its new Windows 8.1 Plus Smart Watch. The watch will come in one color, blue, and have one band, also blue.
The watch features a 100x100 LED display and has two apps: "What Time is It?" and "What Day Is It?". The watch connects to a home WiFi network, unless the network is secured, in which case the watch won't work. Battery life is estimated to be 18 minutes.
The watch features a flat surface and a single button, known as "Microsoft Stem". The Stem is used to reboot the watch after its frequent crashes.
Microsoft is shipping 300 of the watches and expects to sell about 35 a week.
