As well as announcing the new Microsoft Band smartwatch, the company also announced a new mobile health and fitness platform called Microsoft Health.
The Microsoft Health platform comes with a cloud service which will allow you to store your health and fitness data, and Microsoft will launch a new Microsoft Health app on Windows Phone, iOS and Android.
Today we’re announcing a new platform called Microsoft Health. Within health and fitness, there is rapid innovation occurring around wearable devices with smart sensors that are telling us more about our lives. A vibrant marketplace of devices and services is giving us access to a wealth of data about our nutrition, health and fitness. We see an opportunity to bring these devices and services together to allow you to combine the information they collect and use the power of the cloud to turn that data in to something more valuable.
