Microsoft Band 2 review: This health-oriented wearable still faces big hurdles

 

The Microsoft Band 2 combines a powerful sensor package and superior analytics into an affordably priced smartwatch. But a lack of apps and graphics and an awkward form factor hold it back.

Microsoft Band 2.0 review: A revamped fitness band, inside and outside

 

I'm staring at the screen on my Microsoft Band. I want it to tell me something. I want it to help me.

Comfier design; lots of smartwatch-like notifications; solid heart-rate monitoring, step counting and automatic sleep tracking; built-in GPS; can track golfing, biking and running; works with Android, iOS and Windows phones

Still offers merely adequate 48-hour battery life; expensive; workout and coaching guidance isn't helpful or clear; doesn't provide social connectivity and only makes a few health-based insights

Microsoft's slowly improving fitness band remains seriously ambitious, but it still lacks the better battery life and helpful daily coaching needed to justify its price.

Microsoft Band 2 Review

 

The Microsoft Band 2 is the manufacturer's second go at entering the fitness wearables market with the original Microsoft Band only available in the US and UK released a year ago.

Review: Microsoft Band 2

 

Hypochondriacs of the world, this is the fitness tracker for you.

An iffy battery life and ropey iOS app hold the Band 2 back from being a top fitness tracker.

Microsoft Band 2 review: good... but not great

 

Comfortable after redesign, but still has many flaws as the original.

Works ok on Windows phone

 

Purchsed this in combination with my windows 720 lumia phone. It worked mostly well but notifications were very delayed and then the band cracked and split open where it exposed the electronic connections. I received a new band under warranty, but my...

Another big brand wearable

 

If you are a techno nerd or geek then this wearable is what you may be looking for. If you are looking for a wearable for an active lifestyle, then this one is a no go. Where to start. Well for the nerds, this thing is feature packed and you can add...

A total dud!

 

While it worked perfectly, the strap starting splitting after 6 months. I returned it to Harvey Norman for repairs and after 7 weeks of waiting and calling them, I was finally told that Microsoft would refund me as they no longer made the band 2. Very...

Full of technology, but not an efficient fitness band

 

I've had it for 6 months when I stopped wearing it. Although it is packed with cool stuff, like smart alarm, UV sensor, and heart rate, it is not very efficient. I had to erase and redownload the app many times cause it would just not connect. Also,...

Just needs a bigger battery

 

Absolutely love this device, amazing how much was packed into it. The only thing is, its very small and doesnt have the space for a decent battery. GPS is always within 2% of my Garmins, it appears a little more accurate with tight bends. Only problem...
