If you’ve been looking forward to having the new Microsoft band, then the good news is that it became available today and is ready for purchase at Microsoft retail stores and also online at MicrosoftStore.com for an estimated retail price of $249.99; and you will also have it at other third-party retail stores.
The Microsoft Devices Team wrote on a blog post that “Today, we are excited to announce several new features exclusively for the new Microsoft Band – features customers have been asking for, and we’re proud to deliver on – including all-new music controls, activity reminders, and an improved and enhanced Exercise Tile.”
The new Microsoft Band is designed to work like your coach if you ever need to exercise, and it is a health fitness wearable that should become your partner if you must stay on top of every little thing that matters to you.
With the latest hand band from Microsoft, you don’t need your mobile phone to listen to your favorite music. You can view all song titles on the color touch-screen display, and you can manage your music by pressing play, pause, forward or skip back, and even by raising or lowering the volume.
To sweeten the deal, Microsoft partnered with Spotify to give you access to great tunes, and you can also use Bluetooth to connect existing phone music you have via any music app you already use on your mobile.
With your new Microsoft Band, you can set notifications to remind you of little things that matter for your health – this includes rising up for a walk at set times, taking your drugs, and going for a checkup among other things – and you can put off the reminders when you so wish.
To this extent, the Exercise Tile on your Microsoft band can help you monitor your calorie burn, heart rate, desired fitness exercise and their durations among other things. You can see how well you have done in your exercises by checking out the Microsoft Health app or by seeing your Web Dashboard – all needed things will be categorized under the type of exercises you do for proper insights and adequate performances.

And then, you are sure to learn about new features with the “What’s New” tile. As soon as new updates are available, the feature comes up by itself on your band screen and prompts you to take the necessary action.
