Microsoft Band companion app 'Microsoft Health' for Windows Phone receives new update

Earlier today, Microsoft began selling a limited number of Microsoft Bands for those of you who have yet to own one. However, as predicted, the Band immediately went out of stock in just a short while. If you own a Microsoft Band, you will want the official companion app called Microsoft Health. This app received a new update today. Here is the official app description:

“Live healthier and be more productive with the Microsoft Health app for Windows Phone. Achieve wellness goals by tracking your heart rate, steps, calorie burn, and sleep quality. Maximize your fitness with Guided Workouts, 24-hour heart rate monitoring, and automatic activity counting. Be more productive with email previews and calendar alerts at a glance. Take notes and set reminders with your voice using Cortana personal assistant. Personalize your Microsoft Band and get new features as they roll out.”

In the latest version of the app, Microsoft has corrected the historical views for steps and calories, fixed an issue with zip code validation as well as birth date validation. The app update also improves the handling of 0 minute duration sleep events. Connected apps link is now available at first sign-up. The app update also improves the overall stability of the app.
