Last month Microsoft launch their new Microsoft Band wearable smart bracelet which has been designed to provide users with both a fitness tracker and smartwatch in one device.
The Microsoft Band is equipped with a 1.4 inch display offering a resolution of 320 x 106 and is equipped with ten different sensors to monitor heart rate monitor, UV index, GPS, sleep tracking and more.
Microsoft has also made their new Band waterproof and sealed it with IP 54 certification, meaning that it can be splashed with water and is protected from dust. Check out the video below that puts those claim to the test and submerges the Microsoft Band in water.
“Microsoft Band makes it easier to reach your fitness goals. You can track your daily physical activity and review your stats with a glance at your wrist. Just like a personal trainer, Microsoft Band guides you to improved wellness by constantly learning about you, your current fitness level, and your future needs.
If you’re using Windows Phone 8.1, ask Cortana to take notes or set reminders with your voice. She’ll give you driving directions and keep you on top of traffic, sports, stocks, weather, and more. She is ready to help whenever you need it.”
For more information on the new Microsoft Band jump over to the Microsoft website for details and the ability to purchase for $200.
