Microsoft Band: The fitness tracker from Microsoft

Last week in a surprise Microsoft announced Microsoft Band a smart watch and a fitness tracker for Windows Phone, Android and iOS. Microsoft also announced a new cloud service called as Microsoft Health that runs the numbers from the data collected by the Microsoft Band.

The Microsoft Band has 10 sensors and is able to track things like heart rate, step and general movement. But some sensors give you the ability to measure UV exposure and a galvanic skin response measure to track stress. The fitness tracker can last 48 hours on a single charge and you can wear it all day and night to also track your sleep.
