It didn’t take Microsoft long to figure out what people want in a fitness tracker. Off the bat, the Microsoft Band is one of the best wearables on the market. It tracks all the right things, the screen is gorgeous, the U.I. is usable, and the smartphone integration has notifications down pat. The accuracy of steps seems about right and it’s on par with FitBit. That said, we actually had better luck with Microsoft’s heart rate monitoring over some of the competitors. Nicely, Band has an indicator for when it’s actually locked onto your heart rate and its getting a goo... Full review
There is so much potential here it's killing me. I love the Microsoft Band, but it's breaking my heart, knowing it can do so much more.
It seems as if Microsoft thought cramming fitness, fitness and some more fitness would make the band a feasible tracker. It's not a bad idea, but it would be nice to do something with all that data. I can see the Microsoft Band reaching Jawbone UP24 levels of awesome once the Health app really gets going.
The company has struck a fine balance between fitness and functionality, but I'd like to see it executed better, and I feel like Mic... Full review
Clearly, the Microsoft Band is more than your traditional fitness tracker. In that regard, it’s quite compelling that for something new, it’s already a versatile option that’s also rich in its app ecosystem.

With its sticker price of $199.99, it’s undoubtedly expensive for just a fitness tracker – easily encroaching smartwatch territo... Full review
In terms of design the Microsoft Band is a chunky beast at best and an absolute insult to the wearable tech movement at worst. We get the feeling that Microsoft cares more about getting its software onto as many systems as possible than it does about winning a hardware battle and sees the Band as an early, and cheap, way of gaining some ground. However, GPS is a big plus point and the fitness tracking, while basic, works well enough. 24/7 heart rate monitoring is also crucial and, with a device selling for under $200 that also boasts a decent, if unspectacular, colour touchscreen display &n...

Just because a smartwatch is, by nature, a poor interface for interacting with a computer system, that doesn’t mean it’s completely unnecessary. A wrist-worn gadget is very good at providing one-way glance-able information (like the time) as well as collecting data from sensors attached to your body, and that’s really where the Microsoft Band shines. It’s primary goal is collecting data about your health and the wrist-worn gadget does that very well. This is very much a “version 1″ product though as some of the sensors in this fitness band aren’t ev... Full review
