Microsoft Band Is a Welcome Surprise in the Wearable Market

Comments Off on Microsoft Band Is a Welcome Surprise in the Wearable Market 12

Microsoft’s Band contains a display that shows text messages from a cellphone, Facebook alerts and even bar codes that allow people to pay for coffee at a Starbucks from their wrists.

Microsoft surprised the tech world last week by introducing a new fitness tracking wristband, along with an app and cloud-computing technology for tracking health and fitness data.

The bigger surprise is that the new Microsoft Band is pretty good.

The $199 band is, in some ways, a proof of concept for Microsoft, which intends for its Microsoft Health platform to be integrated with other wearables, like Jawbone, and even data gathered from devices like iPhones or Samsung Android devices.

But compared to some of the competition, the Microsoft Band is a full-featured device that might be the most flexible wearable device on the market. Original post at Bits.blog.The New York Times
