It was just a matter of time before Microsoft joined in for the fitness tracker game. This is the second model of their fitness band but it doesn't bring a lot of new features to the game. However, there is still a large number of functions which you won't be able to find anywhere else. Apart from usual features such as calories and steps counting and sleep tracking, it offers a heart rate monitor and a screen that is somewhat larger than what we are used to. You can integrate it with your iPhone, Android, and, of course, your Windows phone.
Pros / What Customers Like:
Even though it was expected from Microsoft, this is one of the few fitness trackers which is compatible with Windows Phone.
You can do a lot more with your screen that it's the case with other bands; you can read your mail, calendar, check the weather and the band almost feels like a smartwatch.
It's comfortable on the wrist and it looks very modern.
Cons / What Customers Don't Like:
This is probably the most expensive tracker we reviewed but there aren't a lot of reasons to justify that price.
It doesn't perform the best as a fitness tracker not it is a perfect smartwatch.
Microsoft has generally overpriced its new fitness tracker, even though it comes packed with more functions than what we were used to. Fitness trackers should usually be simpler and easier to use. Also, customers have reported that the band’s life is too short and it tends to break apart in a couple of months. The screen’s dimensions are also weird, but the number of functions is great. If the battery life was better and if it focused more on health and fitness, it could have been a great expensive product. Now it’s just a decent expensive product.
