Wearable technology has significantly advanced from the days of predominantly being used by health addicts and tech geeks to now being a popular fitness tool for people of all athletic ability.
The Microsoft Band is a device which appeals to anyone with health and fitness goals wanting a piece of kit which caters to the needs of their active lifestyle.
The Band 2 was released at the end of 2015 building on the success of the original Microsoft Band. From an improved Microsoft Health dashboard to a beautiful curved display, the new Microsoft Band enables you to live healthier and achieve more.
The Microsoft Band goes beyond regular fitness wearable capabilities, allowing you to track your calories burned, heart rate, exercise and quality of sleep.
It features an eleventh sensor, a barometer, to measure elevation gain and loss with even more precision. Great for hiking, biking or even floors climbed. Unlike the Apple Watch, built-in GPS stores your data right on your wrist, so you have the option of leaving your mobile device at home while you hit the trail or the road. Once you have synced your new Microsoft Band with Microsoft Health, you can analyse your data anywhere you go with the Windows 10 Universal App. And, the new Microsoft Band is cross-platform compatible, allowing you to use your iOS, Android or Windows devices.
It also delivers nutritional advice in the form of support to Microsoft Health and Microsoft Band with weight-loss partner Lose It! This comprehensive and personal weight-loss experience can help you lose weight by getting to know your goals and the nutrition and exercise you need to reach them.
At a glance, you’ll see your progress through your daily calorie budget and how many more steps you need before you start racking up bonus calories.
Whether you’re out for a run or out for a ride, you can track your trends and understand even more about your fitness as you progress.
The Microsoft Band provides your VO2 max tracking right on your wrist, giving you an indication of your true fitness level, and a helpful indicator of how that 12-week Guided Workout Half-Marathon is adding up to help you become a more efficient runner.
But, you wouldn’t even be hitting the gym, the road or the trail without a little help from your personal assistant; and that’s where the new Microsoft Band helps you stay on top of it all.
The new, curved glass display provides notifications directly to your wrist so you can stay up-to-date with customisable call alerts, email, calendar, texts and social updates. With a Windows Phone running Windows 8.1 or later, you can also use Cortana straight from your wrist to reply to texts, set reminders, or schedule a meeting for the next day.
