Microsoft Band v2 Setup with Microsoft Health App


Earlier today you saw Rod's unboxing and hardware tour of the new Microsoft Band 2 that became available today from Microsoft.

He will be providing a truly fitness geek perspective of the new device as he begins using it over the next several days.

For myself, I will be taking the new version of the Band on the road with me as I head out to the Microsoft Campus for the next week. The annual Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Summit begins on Monday and I will be arriving in the Seattle area this weekend. 

I expect to be putting a lot of steps on the new device as I go between hotels, meetings and other events throughout the week.

You can expect my own perspective on the new wearable from Microsoft in about a week or so.

Until then I wanted to share the new setup in the Microsoft Health app as I paired v2 of the Band with my LG G4 Android smartphone.

I have also included a few of my own unboxing shots as I am just impressed with the packaging that Band arrived in and what will be experienced on retail shelves.

Enjoy and let us know if you have received your new Band and what your initial impressions are of the device.
