  1. Love my band 2

    Will be sad to see no more bands from Microsoft.
    Despite rubber cracking on 2 bands, mb2 was a great asset with lyme disease.
    Thanks Microsoft.

    • Help me, Band SDK

      I am looking for Microsoft Band SDK.
      The newest version is desirable, but older versions are OK.
      Please send the SDK files to lymca@hanmail.net.
      Please help me!

      • Don't remoce the SDK from the developer websites

        Please do not remove the SDK!! to discontinue the production of the device is one thing but to remove the SDK , to prevent the development of new application for exiting users, makes no sense at all!

        • Add a emergency information tile that can not be deleted from band

          I think there should be a tile for emergency information and a way to get emergency response on the band.

          If a person pushes the tile for an emergency it would notify the proper response and emergency contact(s).
          Have the tile locked and only able to unlock with fingerprint.

          • Locking the band

            I think there should be a lock of some sort on the band to prevent theft.
            It could be fingerprint, numerical code, or facial recognition, something like that.

            • We need a property in the SDK that exposes a collection of sensors for a Band

              It would be helpful if there was a property for the Band which exposed a collection of sensors so that developers could iterate through them,

                Add SDK for Mac and Windows so we can create apps similar to official sync app (to talk to band 2 via USB not only bluetooth).

                • Let us create proper applications for the band

                  Let us create full applications for the band, as a developer I have many little apps that I really want to make but the current API is super limited.

                  I want to make apps that control home automation (lights etc...), send emails, even little games like a tilt based snake would be awesome.

                  Yes I know that battery life would be much lower if people were playing games on them etc... but people are already used to that on phones, give us the API to make quality apps for the band.

                  • it would be a great idea to show the steps count on lock screen

                    Microsoft health steps count should show up on lock screen

                    • Prevent SDK from interrupting Band exercise Session

                      Prevent syncing to the Band using the SDK, from interrupting the current Band exercise session. Currently when an app syncs to the Band (e.g. updates the MeTile image) it aborts the current activity (e.g. a Bike ride) session running on the Band which is super-annoying. Instead, the SDK should just throw an exception and not interfere with the current Band exercise activity, which should have priority.

                        • Support MS Band SDK on Windows 10 IoT Core

                          I would like to request full support for the Microsoft Band SDK on Windows 10 IoT Core. With this, we could enable scenarios where band data could be read into a Windows 10 IoT Core compatible device, for example, Raspberry Pi 2. The possibilities would be endless. For example, monitoring health stats in real-time and displaying in a user interface connected to the HDMI output of the Raspberry Pi 2. Team KineticCare recently won the 2016 AT&T Developer Summit Hackathon with a very similar idea - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5v_CtVMA2o&t=2m

                          Currently, when attempting to read Heart Rate Sensor from a Microsoft Band paired…

                          • Remove to limitation to elements per page

                            At the moment we can only add aprox. 20 elements to a page... we need more!!!

                            I've developed an app to control my intelligent home (lights, and so on) and the tile displays a page per room in every page every device gets a headline and some buttons... that works fine but 20 elements are reached very fast

                              at the moment it is not possible to create a text or a textbutton with default text. so we have to set the text for those elements everytime we create / update a page. but in most cases the text of those elements does not change...

                                As the title say. As an original band owner, I was waiting for this, and I was shocked, that only the Band 2 got this option, while this really looks like something that is happening on the Phone.

                                  • Correct the mistakes in the Tiles section of the Band SDK documentation

                                    The examples given in the Band SDK documentation for adding custom tiles contain errors. In some cases this is as simple as missing semicolons or braces - but even with these corrections, the examples on pages 48-50 do not execute without error.

                                    Can you add stand-alone examples to the documentation or else provide samples (e.g. on GitHub) for creating custom tiles.
