The WSJ post mentions that certain hardware providers have been called by Microsoft to showcase some if their equipment such as 1.5 inch displays for watches!

Not having seen Microsoft inspired products of this type,  one can only imagine how a smart watch from this software giant could look like. Some say it will be based on the square design of Windows 8 tiles, with a lot of corners etc. Some others mentioned SPOT technology watches, Microsoft's first effort in designing such a device in cooperation with Tissot and Swatch that looked like these:
