      • Allow users to enter data if they have completed an activity without their band.

        Allow manual entry of an "Explore", run or bike. integrate with Bing Maps so you can trace the route to get a fairly accurate distance

        • Allow Guided Run

          Guided workout just use GPS to calculate distance, it doesn't allow to see the track you did, speed, etc. I find it very necessary to create a guided run, so you can train with intervals or fartlek workouts and still seeing the track you made, the speed, partial times, etc.

          • Haptic feedback for heart rate zones

            We should have haptic and sound feedback to help maintain desired heart rate zones without the need to visually check the band. This would make it much easier during runs.

              • Start the run

                When I hit the action button for a run, just start the run. Why are you asking me questions about gps? I already set it to on just start the fucking run. All of your apps have this problem too many theatrics. Nobody has time to meet and greet and interview with these apps when it's time to get something done in the heat of the moment. It's annoying as shit. I can't imagine how many miles I missed because I didn't see that the band is looking for gps. Who gives a fuck, just find it and start the…

                  • Bike parameters are needed to calculate calories more accurately... there is at least a 33% difference between the Band2 and Strava

                    I can't find a way to enter bike parameters, I mean the weight of the bike and type. Like in Strava, because I think this is the only difference..

                          • Bike SOS

                            There is a critical need for an emergency bike response app.

                            A couple years ago I had a bad crash over 100+ km from home. I'm looking for an app that can do some critical things. If you ride a bike you know there is a desperate need for this:
                            (1) While in biking mode, your band should always monitor your vitals in case you get a heart attack.
                            (2) Check for a collision (excessive g's on the accelerometer).
                            (3) Monitor for movement.

                            The bands response would be recommended to be the following:
                            a) Try and check the cyclist is…

                                • Prompt me to stop my run or hike when I drive off in my car

                                  I use the band to track my hikes, but when I'm done I often forget to end my hike. Then when I drive off in my car the app vibrates when I hit the next mile, reminding me -- too late -- to end my hike. I wish the app would detect that my speed is well beyond hiking speed and prompt me to end my hike. Of course it could do the same thing for a run as well, but I rarely forget to end my runs.

                                    • Improve GPS accuracy in Power Saver mode after the tracked run syncs with Microsoft's cloud

                                      I just ran a half marathon last weekend and while MapMyRun on my phone tracked the run to be a close to accurate 13.41 miles, my Microsoft Band 2/Microsoft Health reported a 16.48 mile run!

                                      That is very poor accuracy, so when I synced my Band with Microsoft Health and compared the map with the one I tracked on MapMyRun, both maps were identical.

                                      If the GPS is able to track the route accurately, why can't Microsoft Health correct the total length of the run after overlaying the route information on map data in the cloud?
