Another day… another fitness band. This time Microsoft is joining the fray with their fitness tracker called the Microsoft Band. This cleverly named fitness band has some cool sensors that most other fitness wearables don’t. For example the Microsoft Band includes an optical heart rate sensor, a built-in GPS, a UV sensor to track sunlight exposure, and a galvanic skin sensor for monitoring stress. The Microsoft Band is also not locked to just Microsoft phones, which is a good thing because only a few people have them, but works with Apple’s iOS and Android as well.
The screen is a 1.4-inch touchscreen and is also used to display emails, phone calls, texts, and social bits like Facebook and Twitter. Battery life is expected to last about 2 days. Yours for $199 via Microsoft. Video of the Microsoft Band after the break.
