Microsoft Band

Uploaded on 17 December, 2014

The Microsoft Band is the first hardware in Microsoft’s plan to track and analyze your fitness data. We decided to try it out.

The Band is, of course, Microsoft’s first fitness tracker, the physical actualization of the company’s grand plan to be the source of all the world’s health data. The Band is part of the plan, but it’s not the whole plan; the whole plan involves cross-platform apps, a machine-learning system that turns your data into “insights” about how to live better tomorrow, and a vast ecosystem of hardware and software developers collecting data and delivering insights. The Band is the first device, but it won’t be the last, not even from Microsoft.
