This fitness/ healthcare band market is already buzzing and it gets even hotter when a giant takes a leap into the segment. Microsoft has just done that with the launch of Microsoft band for $200. Microsoft Health is a new service that helps you live healthier by providing actionable insights based on data gathered from the fitness devices and apps that you use every day. Microsoft Health makes tracking personal fitness easier, more insightful, and more holistic. It will be available from Microsoft Stores in the US tomorrow.
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. Just like a personal trainer, Microsoft Band guides you to improved wellness by constantly learning about you, your current fitness level, and your future needs.
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. Microsoft Band is designed to work on multiple platforms on your phone including iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone.
