    Introducing Microsoft Health


    Today we are announcing a new platform called Microsoft Health that is designed to make it easier for you to track your personal fitness and give you a more holistic view into your fitness activities. Microsoft Health will unite data like steps, calories, heart rate and more from different health and fitness devices and services to give you powerful insights on the data collected. Microsoft Health will work with with UP by Jawbone, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and RunKeeper today – with support for more devices and services to come. For everything you need to know about our new Microsoft Health platform, read this blog post from Corporate Vice President Todd Holmdahl. And also check out this story on Microsoft News Center.


    We are also announcing the Microsoft Band. The Microsoft Band is a “smart band” designed to be worn 24 hours a day for people active at work (like me) or at the gym (not like me) or both. It has 10 smart sensors for 24 hour heart rate monitoring, calorie burn measurement, advanced sleep quality tracking and more. The Microsoft Band will keep you connected at a glance with smart notifications including incoming calls, emails, texts and social updates as well as access to Cortana from your Windows Phone device. The Microsoft Band is now available in limited quantities in the U.S. at MicrosoftStore.com and starting October 30th at Microsoft Retail Stores for $199 (U.S.).



    With the Microsoft Health Windows Phone app, you can personalize your Microsoft Band. You can check out your wellness goals and your fitness data like your heart rate, steps, calorie burn, and sleep quality as well as maximize your fitness with Guided Workouts, 24-hour heart rate monitoring and automatic activity counting. You’ll also be able to configure email previews and at-a-glance calendar alerts and take notes and set reminders with Cortana! Download the Microsoft Health app today from the Windows Phone Store.
