Microsoft is reportedly just weeks away from launching a smart watch that the company hopes will be able to compete with the Apple Watch.

How you ask? Well Forbes reports that the Windows-powered smart watch will be compatible with different operating systems making it one of the few smart wearables that won't be tied to either Android or iOS.

It's not clear what software the watch will be running but Forbes claims that the device will be able to track your heart and come with fitness tracking hardware built in.

One of the big focuses from Microsoft will be the battery life, with the watch set to run for at least two days putting it ahead of the Moto 360 and almost certainly the Apple Watch.
