While the Microsoft Band is the main wearable accessory for Windows Phone users, there was once meant to be another device by Nokia, codenamed Moonraker. The device was ultimately cancelled before coming to market, and now lives on in the realm of what could have been. A few days ago, live images of the device were leaked to the public via Weibo and were shown to the public.

Today, even more images of the device have surfaced on Baidu, showing us more of what was inside this device.

The only specifics we can tell is that the device would have a 305 mAh battery and some sort of  ARM processor, beyond that, there isn’t anything new here to reveal.

Ultimately though, this device has been cancelled and would must likely have been unable to do anything other generic Android smartwatches would not be able to do.

The smartwatch sector is still a small niche one despite the best efforts of manufacturers, and without a unique selling point palatable to the mass market moonraker may have been destined to be just another smartwatch that no one bought.
