Introducing the smart band from Microsoft. Live healthier, be more productive, and stay connected with the people and moments that matter most. Powered by Microsoft Health.
Microsoft introduced today its new Microsoft BAND smartwatch Health tracker that includes Microsoft Health app that will be available also for iPhones and Androids, besides Windows Phones of course.
With Health app you can track your heart rate, steps, calorie burn and sleep quality.
You can take notes and set reminders with your voice using Cortana personal assistant.
Smartphone notification support appears to include email messages, calendar reminders, phone calls received, text messages, Twitter and Facebook notifications, weather, and stocks information. Microsoft’s Band will also notify owners about the weather using location information from a phone. “There is a finite number of messages the Band will display for each notification,” reads a Microsoft description.
The Microsoft band will cost $199 when it hits the shelves on October 30 online and in Microsoft stores in the United States.
