    • Add a Medical Emergency ID tile

      Just like Road ID, it would be great to have an Emergency ID tile on the band so that in the event of a running or other exercise emergency, someone could easily ID you when help arrives. Also helpful would be the ability to specify any health concerns to show on the tile. It would need to be the first tile to be of any benefit.

      • Show battery by % of charge.

        I think it really helps to understand my band 2 if I can see battery by % of charge.

        • Bring the Band 2 Features to Band 1

          at least that Features that don't need the barometer, like UV Metering on Runs or Bicycle Tours, or the Sleep-Alarm-WakeUp Feature that really doesn't need the bigger Screen of Band 2 or de curved design or the barometer... all sensor are in Band 1!

          it is rediculus that persons have bought band 1 and are now sitting on an device that is basically worthless, but really has almost the same hardware functionality as the successor but is just left behind

              • Add support for a vertical layout display on the Band

                Adding option for vertical display so that when screen is worn on top of the wrist, then will be easier to rotate wrist and read the time, or see other data. Can then swipe through tiles vertically. Would still need messages to remain horizontal to make the most of the screen space.

                  • Ability to delete emails, text messages, phone calls, calendar, mark as read, or flag (triage), clear all

                    The Band software needs a way to eliminate emails, messages and other data once they've been read on the Band. According to your tech support people, the Band accumulates up to 8 messages, then rolls them over as new data appears. Band users therefore have to keep scrolling through the same messages in order to get to fresh ones. The "delete" function should give users the choice of either deleting this data just on the Band or on the phone as well. That setting should be built into the Health app. BTW, my smartphone is an Android Samsung Galaxy Note…

                    • Find my phone, Find my band, and "You forgot your band" warning

                      The bluetooth connection to the phone allows several things: a warning from the phone app when you leave home without your band, a warning on your band when you leave a place without your phone, a find-my-phone tile on the band to ring your phone when you lose it in the couch, and a find-my-band option to buzz your band from the phone app.

                            • Please do not end support of the Microsoft Band

                              I have owned Microsoft Band for a year and half and I would recommend it to anyone. The activity tracker aspect of it is something that users get attached to that it motivates people to get out of the house for Physical activity. I myself have data that spans the length of 1.5 years. Recently, when my band 's wrist teared, I took it back to Best buy. They were happy to take it back but they said that they had deleted the item from their inventory. I have since gone less than a week without it and I'm absolutely…

                                    • Add find my phone option with MS Band

                                      It would be great to have an option to press a tile on the band which would make our phones ring to find them. With 2 young kids I'm often looking for my phone and pushing a button on my band would definitely be easier and faster than logging to a website to accomplish the same task.

Lots of syncing problems. Please fix this.
