  1. Allow us to manually add or edit any activity, or activity data

    If you forget to tell the band you woke up the band will just record it as "awake" if you're walking around or "sleep" if you left it charging. This screws up statistics as for example there is on day I forgot the band at home charging and states that I slept for 18 hours.

    • Show max heart rate on Microsoft health, like before update.

      Show max heart rate on Microsoft health like before. It was on the health app and website before the upgrade, please put it back.
      Why did you remove it anyway?

      • Show the VO2 max history

        I would like to see somewhere on the dashboard that you could view your VO2 max history. I don't want to just see the current value, I want to see how things are improving, or getting worse.

            • compare runs or bike rides over the same route

              In the Health dashboard, it would be nice to be able to compare the various metrics for different days for the same run or bike route. A histogram of these data, time series, and averages would be helpful. This would allow one to see if they are improving, see if the sleep was affecting the results, or even if the weather or some other factor was at play. Further if you could tag a bike ride with the bike ridden, you could see what affect that had.

              • Year Summary

                It would be great to be able to see our monthly totals side by side, the way we can now see cumulative days and weeks. A "Year" tab on the web dash should be easy to implement!

                • Historical Heart Rate Chart With Details Over Time

                  I would like to be able to track down the heart rate data during an activity to the actual sample. It could be a chart where I could click a particular time and see it instead of a smoothed out chart. The smoothed chart does not let me see where it was not recorded or what it dropped down to a particular point in time.

                  • Body Measurements and Weight

                    Please add body measurement and weight. Fitbit used to have this feature but they removed it. It would be nice to be able to track measurements of your body like biceps, thighs, waist, hips and other measurements to make it easier to see progress.

                    • Access to the underlying data or at least a zoom into the charts

                      For example, today I did a 60 minute run tracked with the "run" activity. It shows that my average heart rate was 182, high 191, and ending 176. Obviously it was in the 180s a lot. But the smoothed daily heart rate graph doesn't show any point over 160 even with a sustained average of 182 for an entire hour. I want visibility into either a very granular zoom or the actual underlying data so I can actually use the information.

                              Allow a user to share GPS and other collected data from any past run or cycle in the form of a web-link that they can send. A user should be able to decide what information they want to share in these links as they may not want to share heart rate and other personal data.

                                  Adding things like Golf and Cycling are great - but for those of us who are not interested in these activities it would be much better to allow us to simply turn them off. I would rather not have to see them at all. It'll only get more noisy when things like Swimming and other activities are added in the future!

                                    In Europe and other parts of the World, we consider monday to be the first day of the week.
                                    When doing analytics on the dashboard, it would be nice to see weeks like this, instead of having to go by the US standard of Sunday-Saturday.

                                      Provide a way to export csv or excel file with the first column being the time stamp, and the other columns being measured data, like heart rate, calories burnt,... not the summary statistics like the current export option that you have. I would like to be able to plot the data along with other data streams that the band doesn't currently provide. Other folks have requested this and you have marked it as completed without understanding the difference between RAW data and summary statistics that you currently allow to export.
