Microsoft behind the times?

Is Bill Gates behind the times?
(NYT link - reg req'd) Microsoft today introduced designs for "a new class of watch" which can "provide weather information, text messages and other data." The simplest versions "will cost less than $150," the story says.
But Timex currently offers its own, cheaper version: the Internet Messenger Watch
for only US$50, and a year's free service, for almost the same features.
Is Microsoft actually behind
the times with their 'innovation'? Is this embarrassing for the software giant?
