Nokia Moonraker, the canceled smartwatch shows us for the first time in video its interface and design

Nokia Moonraker, the canceled smartwatch shows us for the first time in video its interface and design

Remember when Nokia was acquired by Microsoft ? Well, in that distant September 2013 are we promised that Finland would keep much of its essence and the idea was a win-win, where Nokia would be more competitive against the onslaught of Android and Microsoft could enter the growing mobile market. Now we all know what happened.

Before Nokia was part of Microsoft had many projects, among them was the smartwatch known under the codename ' Moonraker ', which saw a first IMAGENE s more than a year ago, but today we can see more of this watch to the end Never saw the light, thanks to a video that just appeared on the internet.

Canceled to bring the Microsoft Band to life (now also canceled)
When Microsoft took over Nokia, Moonraker is planned that went on sale in 2014 by the Lumia 930, but Redmond had a better idea, which was to resume much of the capabilities of this watch and adapt to a quantizer bracelet Would have a more stylized design and some functions of the Nokia watch.

Thus later came the Microsoft Band, and this represented the cancellation of the Moonraker project as they felt that the clock Nokia could affect sales of the Band, because then Microsoft wanted to bet on a single wearable. Again, today we see that perhaps was not the best idea, since a few days ago confirmed that Microsoft abandoned the development of the Band and its presence in the wearables.

Now thanks to this video we can have a clearer idea of how it worked and how it looked this smartwatch, where the highlight was their functions quantifier, since both the design and interface were very basic, with sober and square box appearance, very Similar to the earliest Sony watches.

In its interface we can see the classic functions of email, notifications, music, among others, the whole operation was based on gestures and perhaps the most interesting is the lower physical button, which gave access to other screens to access other Clock functions.
