We just saw the official Microsoft Band sync app for Mac, which gave us our first look at Microsoft's fitness tracker. Now we're seeing a new Microsoft Health app on Windows Phone, Android and iOS. These apps allow you to personalize your Microsoft Band and offer fitness tracking thanks to the wearable.
Here's the app description for Microsoft Health:
"Live healthier and be more productive with the Microsoft Health app for Windows Phone. Achieve wellness goals by tracking your heart rate, steps, calorie burn, and sleep quality. Maximize your fitness with Guided Workouts, 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and automatic activity counting. Be more productive with email previews and calendar alerts at a glance. Take notes and set reminders with your voice using Cortana personal assistant. Personalize your Microsoft Band and get new features as they roll out."
The Microsoft Health app gives us some insight into features we can expect from the Microsoft Band. Look forward to 24-hour heart rate monitoring, automated activity tracking and more. It also sounds like you might be able to take Cortana notes and set reminders using the Band.
At this point we can't imagine an official announcement from Microsoft is far off. Anyone else looking forward to the Microsoft Band?
