Last week the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Microsoft that revealed one of their latest inventions regarding a smartwatch. While it could be used for general use, the watch packs a punch for sporting enthusiasts that could tap into built-in apps for heart rate monitoring, burning calories and beyond. The brains of the watch can be popped out of the watch and inserted into future fitness equipment. When your workout is done, you could pop it back into your watch. The patent also reveals a customized docking station that could double as an alarm clock.
