I have to say that I was relay surprised. The Band was working without any problems (synchronization, personalization, sensors). Only problem I had was during the run, when recorded data was not accurate when compared with my sporttester. So if the rumors are true and there will be new version, it can one of the best devices on market.
It isn’t real sporttester because of its size. It is a smartwatch with sporttester functions which can be sufficient for people who do sport for fun and want to record and check their progress or health – maybe that is why the web app is called Microsoft Health and not Microsoft Sport Whatever.
Here is a final list of my pros and cons:
- lot of sensors
- works with various platforms
- Good SDK documentation
- 3 day battery life (without GPS)
- Good apps (phone, web, Strava integration)
- Not waterproof
- Not sold worldwide
- Display cover can be easily scratched
