Wearables Plus: A Review of Microsoft Band
Whether you want to learn the technical aspects of a device or find out if a particular wearable product will be a popular fashion statement for you and your customers — maybe I’m fibbing just a little bit there — Thurrot has you covered.
He most recently reviewed Microsoft Band, the Redmond, Washington-based software giant’s wellness device that’s designed to help users achieve their health goals by tracking heart rate, steps, calorie burn and sleep quality.
What was his first impression of the device? “And … wow,” he said in a blog post that outlined his initial review of the product. “Honestly, it’s a bit overwhelming.”
The following day Thurrot gave additional insights. “There’s obviously a lot of interest in it, and I’m personally interested due to my never-ending quest to lose weight and get healthier, and I feel like Microsoft has done something special here,” he said.
“I think I’m going to have to start deep-diving into individual features until I can arrive at some broader understanding of everything that’s available — again, a lot of stuff—and can provide some advice that would actually be helpful to people considering the band,” Thurrot concluded.
Here’s his full package, simply titled, “Microsoft Band Field Guide.”
