Microsoft Band Updates Coming with Smart Alerts, Interest Pinning, UWP Health App

Like a web site from the future, the Italian Windows blog has a habit of uncovering tidbits of news that hasn’t actually happened yet. A good example is a recent story about a universal Windows app for Microsoft Health that has still not seen the light of day.

According to coverage today, a new Microsoft Band 2 firmware update and Health app refresh is coming that provides the following new features (translated from Italian):

  • Get out and explore with Microsoft Band 2 and Explorer: the GPS altimeter are routed, the gap and other information. Smart alerts remind you to stay hydrated and eat. Mark points of interest while you walk to remember the highlights of exploration. <-- think geocaching...
  • Microsoft Health Apps for Windows 10: everything you love your app for mobile devices Microsoft Health is now available for Windows PC or tablet 10.
  • Connective tissues and compete with friends: create challenges for distance, minutes cardio, racing and biking with you and your Facebook friends that use Microsoft Health.
