Microsoft Band Review

Microsoft Band is a fitness tracker

Microsoft Band makes it easier to reach your fitness goals. You can track your daily physical activity and review your stats with a glance at your wrist. It is the company’s first wearable device in many years since the spot watch. Here’s more about the Microsoft’s smartfitness tracker.

Microsoft has launched its first fitness tracker, but it’s much more than that. The $200 Microsoft Band has everything you’d expect — including sensors to continuously track steps, calories and heart rate — but it adds guided workouts from popular brands and the ability to receive smartphone notifications. It also connects to Microsoft Health, the company’s cross-platform cloud service designed to give users personalized fitness advice based on the Band’s data. Plus, unlike competing products in this price range, the Band has GPS built in. Compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices, Microsoft’s gadget wants to be the next big thing in fitness tracking. But does it succeed?

Design
The Microsoft Band looks and feels like a first-generation device. It’s an odd shape — a sort of rectangle with curved sides. On the top is a flat and rigid 0.43 x 1.30-inch display with a power button and the action button on one side. Unlike the Samsung Gear Fit, whose screen has a similar shape, the Band’s screen does not curve to naturally cover your wrist. This adds to the overall bulkiness and awkwardness of the band’s design.
