Microsoft Band Receives Update for Bike Applications

Microsoft has released its smart bracelet for some time, especially for users who use technology to do physical activity and health care. Despite the possibility of being used for almost all fitness purposes, the users of the Microsoft Band did not have many options to help in the bicycle “pedaladas”, but this has just changed.

On Wednesday, the company revealed that its wearable device could also be used with apps to track activities on bikes, such as the popular  Map My Ride  and  Strav. The possibility was not forgotten by Microsoft, is something that users of the bracelet were waiting for.

“From April 23, Microsoft Band consumers will be able to use the devices actively during bike races, comparing their performances or sharing their routes in applications,” it was published on the official Microsoft Devices blog.

Although it is a good news, certainly the possibility is no surprise, since in February Microsoft added a bicycle icon on the smart bracelet. Users can basically use the same functions available in applications that track other physical activities, such as heart monitoring, GPS, speed, and more.

In addition, the company also revealed some details of the new features available in the Health application, users will soon be able to begin tracking the amount of steps per day and burned calories, already using smart phone sensors. That is, app users will not need either Microsoft Band or other applications to crawl this information daily. The update will be released to Android,  iOS  and  Windows Phone mobile devices.

Microsoft Health for Browser will also be updated with some new features, including the ability to compare your daily activities based on information from other users with the same body type as yours. It will also be possible to analyze the efficiency of your sleep, and discover how the body restores its resources at night. The app will also show you the best time and day of the week that you do your best physical performance to further improve your progress.
