Photos of cancelled Nokia smartwatch leak showing off its Metro watchface

New photos of the Nokia Moonraker smartwatch, which Microsoft cancelled after buying the devices and services division, have been published. These new shots of the prototype product show what appears to be a Metro UI, as well as the internals that would have powered the wearable.

Microsoft opted to go for what is now known as the Microsoft Band family of wearables, which have proven to be popular among those who are seeking a new product to strap to their wrist. Are you content with what Microsoft has on offer, or would you have been more intrigued by the Nokia watch concept?
