Top Customer Reviews
The initial setup process took about 20 minutes to setup with my Nexus 5 android phone. I was required to create a new Microsoft Live account in order to track my health and fitness. The Band 2 required an update out of the box which took about 5 minutes to install.
- The magnet based clip is very secure. For example...last night...I rode a rollercoaster with my hands & band 2 in the air without any issues throughout the entire ride:)
- Very comfortable and slim...I have left the Band 2 on my wrist for 3 straight day and it is very lightweight and comfortable.
- The screen is very sharp and I find it easy to use in almost all lighting conditions.
- Reply back to text and email is actually decent!
- The Heart Rate is fairly accurate. For comparison purposes, I have used a polar chest HR strap and the MS Band 2 at the same time...the HR readings were within a few beats!
- It has a barometer sensor which detects squats / curls.
- It is suggested to wear the Band 2 with the screen on the inner wrist...my fear is scratching the screen while typing at work.
- Integrated Battery that possibly cannot be replaced? I hope the MSband 2 battery lasts for a least a few years!
I will continue to update my review over the next few weeks.
As a smart watch, I'm not sure it has the features most users would be looking for. It has no browser functionality, it has limited email/texting capacity, it can't make calls or play games or do any of the hundred things the Apple Watch can do. But at the same time, I find that refreshing. It's straightforward, focused approach is actually a feature for me. It doesn't try to be a laptop on my wrist. It's a fitness tracker with some communication capacity, too. That's what it is. Fitness, plus *basic* communication alerts. Don't expect any more.
I'm a teacher, and just like my students, my phone is "Off and Away During the Day," but having the band on my wrist allows me to quick-glance at incoming texts/emails. For me, this means I often see school-centered email DURING THE DAY, when otherwise I'd miss them by hours. This helps me immensely, but the actual practicality will be limited for other users, primarily because you cannot respond via the band. It only lets you see the headline and a few lines after that; school communications are rarely any longer. You can respond to text messages, via the built-in, tiny, hilarious little keyboard, which manages to be significantly more accurate than my smart phone or tablet's adaptive keyboards. Honestly, I thought I'd never use it... but I prefer the band's keyboard. Whether or not that is the novelty of the thing remains to be seen, but I'm impressed nonetheless.
The Band 2 includes a few other features that probably go unsung by most users. The stopwatch and timer are invaluable in the classroom. With a flick of my wrist I can check how much time remains on an activity; with a few taps I can check my schedule without pouring into my cellphone or digging up my email calendar; I can skim the weather to predict whether or not practice will be cancelled. They're silly little things, but in my profession, ever minute saved is a minute I can focus on a child. This thing ought to be marketed to teachers, not athletes. Though, I'll tell you what: I've discovered I don't walk nearly as much as I thought I do....
One of the other features Microsoft is pushing is the sleep tracking. This is passive on the Band 2: it picks up on your sleep by your heart rate and, I presume, the gyroscopic information. It can be triggered manually as well. After you wake up, the Band synchs with your phone/tablet to present you with a really nice, clean view of sleeping statistics. I've struggled with both insomnia and sleep apnea in the past, and it's interesting for me to look at how I"m doing, sleep wise. I've never tracked that before, but I've been paying close attention to it since I strapped the Band 2 on my wrist. I don't necessarily know how to improve the quality of my sleep, and its advice is pretty mediocre: "Try not to be so stressed before you go to sleep!" Yeah, try to take care of 100+ children entering Adolescent Development Hell, Band 2. Get real.
The device is a touch on the bulky side, it can be slightly uncomfortable (I wear it above my wrist bones and it seems fine there), and the battery life leaves something to be desired. I turn the Band 2 on airplane mode and kill BluTooth when I'm in the school building to conserve power (doing so takes only a few seconds), but it still seems to drain to about 50-60% by the end of the day. It's not the prettiest of devices. But for what it is, I really like this thing. It's found an instant home in my classroom, and in my daily life as a text-messager and data junkie. But I can't present the illusion that the Band 2 is a smart watch. It's a smart tracker, a fitness watch, or something in between. For those looking for a more robust option, Android Wear and the Apple Watch exist. For athletes, teachers, and biometric fans, I can solidly recommend the Band 2.
So I bought the Brand 2 and loved it for a month. I wear it 24/7 except for charging (as intended by manufacturer) and run in it. It's done a great job tracking my runs, heart rate, steps, and integrates pretty well with other apps I use (like My Fitness Pal). The issue is that after a month, the strap tore on one side and started tearing on the other (pictures included).
The real hassle is that it takes "8-10" days (which turns out to be business days) to process the replacement. On top of that, you have to back up your data every time because they wipe the watch. Imagine after three months you get your band back for the second time and you've only gotten to use it 2/3 of the time. Rough.I asked if they could just send replacement straps or if there was a bad batch of silicon, but they said no to both.
Long story short. It's a great product but the strap sucks and that's going to make it so you can only use it 2/3 of the time that you own it. I'd avoid it unless they come out with new straps.
