With this new wearable device, Microsoft has entered the fitness technology era. Classic design, new sensors, new displays and connected to everything you need. Microsoft’s Band has even received great reviews from technology sites and gurus. From the Microsoft website:

Microsoft Band, the first device powered by Microsoft Health, helps you achieve your wellness goals by tracking your heart rate, steps, calorie burn, and sleep quality. It also helps you be more productive with email previews and calendar alerts – right on your wrist.

Accessible anywhere.

Get the most out of Microsoft Band with the Microsoft Health app and a full-featured web dashboard. Via your phone, the app lets you track progress toward fitness goals with easy-to-understand charts. And the web dashboard provides insights, unique to you, in your favorite browser. The more you use your Microsoft Band, the more valuable these insights will become.

Email previews and calendar alerts appear right on your wrist so you know what you have to do and where you have to be even on the go. And with help from Cortana, your productivity will soar. Incoming calls, texts, social updates, weather, finance, and more – see them all on your wrist, discreetly and without needing to pull out your phone.

Cortana at your service.

If you’re using Windows Phone 8.1, Cortana can reply to text messages, take notes, or set reminders with your voice. She’ll give you traffic notifications and keep you on top of sports, stocks, weather, and more. She is ready to help whenever you need it.
