Microsoft Health is a cloud-based service that helps you live healthier by providing actionable insights based on data gathered from the fitness devices and apps that you use every day. Activity-tracking devices like the new Microsoft Band, smart watches, and mobile phones plus services like RunKeeper or MyFitnessPal connect easily to Microsoft Health. Using this fitness data and our Intelligence Engine in the cloud, Microsoft Health provides valuable, personal insights so you can reach your fitness goals.

What are Actionable insights?

Find out which exercises burned the most calories during your last workout. Or how long your body needs to recover before your next training session. Or how much restful sleep you actually got last night. Microsoft Health uses the power of the cloud to give you real-time wellness insights that will help you achieve your fitness goals.

    The band looks good; however, has it overcome the limitation of other step counters and work on treadmills.
