Microsoft Launches New Band 2 Update

Following the launch of the Microsoft Band 2 late last year, delivering the company's second generation fitness wearable device, Microsoft has announced the latest update coming to the Band 2, offering users "more ways for you to continue doing what you love, and more of it".

The new Microsoft Band 2 Update introduces a couple of new features such as:

  • GPS Power Saver mode, which extend the battery life for up to four hours when you run or bike with GPS
  • Weight-tracking functionality, which tracks changes to your weight and offers current approximation of your BMI 
The new Microsoft Band 2 Update is now rolling out as a free update through the Microsoft Health app to all Band 2 owners.
