The Microsoft Band was just released on Thursday, October 30th. If you haven’t been following the news, the Microsoft Band is a hybrid between a Fitbit and a typical smartwatch. It has a touchscreen and lets you interact with Cortana, in addition to tracking your heart rate and more.
The device is pretty nice. Feels a little bulky on my wrist, but not bad. Comfort is questionable, but as I play around with adjusting the band size, I’m finding something that feels better. It’s quite useful for getting notifications of text messages, or checking your calendar.
