Microsoft Band 2

Microsoft today announced the second-generation Band 2, the latest fitness wearable designed to help you live healthier and achieve more. The new Microsoft Band 2 features a new curved display, making it even more comfortable to wear, and Cortana enables you to reply to texts or set reminders with the touch of a button. Alongside a continuous optical heart rate monitor and onboard GPS, the smart band still tracks calories burned, deep exercise and sleep quality — and now records floors climbed — all while maintaining up to two-day battery life. Microsoft Health is available as a universal Windows app, a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices, and via a Web Dashboard, all enabling people to set wellness goals and receive actionable insights.
