21 January, 2016 – Sydney – Microsoft Band, the latest fitness wearable that enables you to live healthier and achieve more, today expanded its retail availability in Australia.

Compatible across iOS, Android and Windows devices, the new Microsoft Band is fully integrated with the Microsoft Health app and helps people reach their fitness goals with 11 advanced sensors that provide actionable insights whether running, biking, golfing or at the gym. Just like a personal trainer, the new Microsoft Band guides you to improved wellness by providing you with insights about your current fitness level, and helps you make plans for your future health goals. Microsoft Band also tracks your heart rate, exercise, calorie burn and sleep quality, and provides notifications about your emails, texts and calendar alerts.

Top features and benefits of Microsoft Band:

  • Live healthier. Microsoft Band and Microsoft Health help you live healthier by tracking your heart rate, exercise, calorie burn and sleep quality. Microsoft Health is available as a universal Windows app, a dedicated app for iOS and Android devices and via a Web Dashboard, enabling people to set wellness goals and receive actionable insights.
  • Get fit. Reach your fitness goals with Guided Workouts and custom tracking whether running, biking or golfing. Your perfect workout companion, Microsoft Band not only tracks speed and distance with a built-in GPS but even elevation gains with its built-in barometer.
  • Be productive. Stay connected at a glance with the notifications that matter most to you right on your wrist. Easily check email previews, calendar alerts, calls or text messages, and view social updates. Stay organised with personal reminders you can set with your voice using Cortana.[1]

The vibrant, full-color AMOLED display is bright and easy to read and is protected with durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3. Its 11 advanced sensors track your daily activity, exercise and sleep quality. And with built-in GPS, you aren’t tethered to a phone to track your data — it’s stored in the device itself then uploaded to Microsoft Health once Bluetooth® kicks in.
