FAQs

Q: What sensors does Microsoft Band 2 have?

A: Microsoft Band 2 has sensors that help you track info about your activity level, UV exposure, location, heart rate, elevation, and more.

Continuous heart rate monitor
Your Microsoft Band 2 continuously monitors your heart rate during the day. See Track your heart rate for more info.

Accelerometer/Gyrometer
The accelerometer/gyrometer in your band detects motion. This info is used to calculate things like number of steps taken. For info on tracking these measurements, see track your calories burned, track your exercise, track your steps, and track your sleep.

GPS
When you turn GPS on during distance travel activities like running, or biking, it records your route, and collects info about the distance you’ve traveled. Sync your band with your phone, and you’ll find a map of your route in the Microsoft Health app. Use the Run Tile to start and stop GPS tracking for running, and the Bike tile when you ride. See using GPS mapping for more information.

Microphone
Use the built-in microphone to speak to Cortana, your personal digital assistant (available only on Windows Phone 8.1 update or later). The microphone is near the left side of the touchscreen. When Cortana’s enabled on your phone and band, just press and hold the action button then speak into the mic. See using Cortana for more info.

Ambient Light Sensor
Info from the ambient light sensor can be used to adjust the brightness of your touchscreen display automatically.

Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) sensors
The GSR sensor measures the conductivity of your skin between the GSR sensor under the clasp and the secondary GSR contact point under the face of your Microsoft Band 2. This tells your Microsoft Band 2 whether you’re wearing it, so it can adjust how it monitors your activities.

UV Monitor
Get a snapshot of the current UV level by tapping the UV Tile.

Barometer
Track your fitness with more precision with a built-in barometer that measures elevation changes while running, biking, or just climbing stairs.


Q: What is auto sleep tracking?

A: You can use Microsoft Band 2 to track how much and how well you’re sleeping.

Microsoft Band 2 tracks the length and quality of your sleep using biometric data like heart rate and motion. The Microsoft Health app and your Microsoft Health web dashboard use data collected by the band to calculate and help you analyze your sleep quality.


Q: What are Guided Workouts, and how do I know which is right for me?

A: Guided Workouts are workout routines you download to your Microsoft Band 2. Your band will tell you what exercise to do, and can track your reps and calories burned. They keep your workouts fresh and challenging with targeted workout plans designed by top fitness brands.

Choose a Guided Workout plan based on your fitness goals. Select the difficulty level, duration, and the focus area that’s right for you, and get a summary of your effort and progress.

Guided Workout videos show you how to do your exercises for maximum fitness benefit.

Ratings and reviews

Rated 1 out of5 by fromPoor Battery LifeI really wanted to like the Band2, because it does everything that I wanted (GPS, links to 3rd party running apps, heart rate monitor and step count), however after 4 months of wearing it every day, the battery life became sporadic. I sent it in for repair and received it back unfixed. I am switching to a more reliable exercise wearable.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromIt fits my life.This watch is just the right amount of tech without being radioactive. It's charge lasts a couple of days. I charge it while I'm in the pool or shower. I wear it all day, and yes it is a bit chunky in a dress shirt. I love that I can voice reply to text on it using Cortana and appreciate the email and phone alerts. The fitness and sleep tracking features are excellent and synch with my fitness tracking sites. Special bonus - I picked my favorite team and it tracks the upcoming game schedule and their latest performance. Overall it's everything I wanted.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromDon't waste your moneySo i bought my band 2 in Feburary if this year and not only does the battery not hold a charge after 2 months, which i had to send to Microsoft repair facility to fix at no charge. Now only 3 months later the battery will hardly last 24-36 hours. Also i it shuts off when i cycle. It will last for roughly 3 - 3 1/2 hours and then just shuts down. I don't know if it the texas heat or what but i have to put on the charger and boom it turns back on instantly with 10-30 % battery life still left. Overall this product is weak, don't waste your money on this band. There are so many other better quality products out there especially at this price point.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromNice features, poor materials qualityWrist band bulky and poor quality, it will break after a few months of standard use, with no option to replace it! Connectivity problems with some android phones. Battery life not so good (you will have to recharge daily if you monitor bike or running). Overall, nice features but not worth the official price.
Date published: 2016-07-23
Rated 5 out of5 by fromExcellent piece of equipmentI bought it for the sleep track mode however it has helped me in other facets, calories burned, exercise and more. I love the notices it gives me for when I am at work such as messages from my phone--one can view them discretely, without having my phone in hand. A very useful product that I keep finding new usages for it.
Date published: 2016-07-23
Rated 2 out of5 by fromNot Sturdy Enough For Everyday WearBand came apart on the joints on both sides after 2 months of use. For a product that claims sleep tracking and daily functions one would assume this was built to last, you'd be wrong. Easily replaced within warranty but now I'm without my band for 2 weeks.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGreat for reminding me how little sleep I getLove the band, the fact that I can use it with any phone is a godsend. It overestimates my steps a bit, but all of the devices I researched tend to do that.
