      • Show more Heart Rate details, Heart Rate chart throughout entire day

        I just bought a Microsoft band 2 for the HR.

        I would like more details:

        - Possibility to zoom to show more precise data
        - Record of week, month, last 7 days, last 4 weeks
        - Warning for Low/High rate
        - Identify Arrhythmia/Bradycardia/Tachycardia

        I believe that these kind of products like the Microsoft band 2 could prevent heart attack and save lives. It could be very interesting to analyse a graph and highlights anomalies even if the sensor is not ultra precise.
        I feel personally concerned because I lost a parent to heart attack when I was 10. This band…

        • Support water intake tracking, reminder to drink water

          Effortless water log. Simple YES or NO

          Make a tile that would ask you "Have you had a cup of water yet. You simply tap YES or NO. This would be based on preset time lets say every hour. You say YES if you had one in the past hour since the last reminder or will have a cup right away and you answer NO if you didnt have one since last reminder and you cant have one anytime soon. This should all be synched to Microsoft health for stats. There should also be a statistic in microsoft health showing…

            • Skiing (Alpine, Cross-Country, Backcountry) & Snowboarding Tile

              I would love to see skiing/snowboarding analysis added to the Band. Although there are plenty of smartphone apps for tracking these activities, I know many people do not use them (myself included) for fear of breaking their smartphone during a wipeout. The durability of the Band would remedy this as well as add in all the additional insights traditional skiing/snowboarding smartphone apps cannot such as heart rate, calories burned, etc. It would be great to have stats such as # of Runs (separated by difficulty), Steepest Angle of Descent, as well as the typical distance, speed, elevation, duration, GPS mapping…

                  • Add manual activity logging!

                    Manny, many health tracking apps allow users to manually enter activities that occurred when the wearable was not in use. This is particularly important for people like myself who swim 4-5 days per week but can't wear the band in the pool. This is a simple fix (if the idiots at Fitbit can figure it out, why is it taking Microsoft so long???)

                    • Add weight by date

                      Weight tracking has been added in the latest release but it only allows for a weight entry for today. I'd like to be able to enter a weight and specify a date. For example, since you just enabled the feature, or as a new band buyer, it will take weeks to months to see the trend develop. I have historical data and would like to enter it so I can see my entire trend in one place.

                      • Enter custom notes on any exercise/activity

                        It would be very helpful if I could enter any notes related to my guided workout entries. For example, I also use the Nike GPS watch for my run training and at the end of the run I upload the data. On the Nike app/website, I am able to specify the characteristics of my run-paved trail, felt great and there's a notes field for me to enter details such as any pain felt during the run or specific nutrition I used.

                        A free form text field would be a great start and I can see if being useful for sleep…

                        • edit run data that have GPS off

                          Whenever you run on treadmill, Band estimates your speed and distance that you have covered. It would be very helpful if you could change data acording to treadmill setup
                          i.e. I did a run today on treadmil with pace 4:30mins/km but band estimated that as 6:09mins/km that is very big error and is messing up data a lot

                              I believe that the band could be capable of measuring blood oxygen levels with the existing hardware. I would love to see a firmware and software update to make this possible. The Withings Pulse has been updated in this way.

                              • Meditation Tile

                                Something that doesn't exist with any other fitness band or service is: meditation tracking. Meditation is a very important health aspect as it lowers stress and provides healthier benefits for people. Thus, it's a perfect fit for Microsoft Health and Microsoft Band.

                                Here is what I suggest:

                                1) Create in Microsoft Heath a new category called "Meditation". This will track every time someone meditates, to include "stress" (galvanic skin response), "heartbeat", etc. Provide metrics on how well they are with meditating (how many minutes, stress level reductions, better O2, etc.)

                                2) Create an app tile that "begins" and "ends" meditation…

                                  The MS Band is counting steps while I'm driving. That would be great if it could detect that I'm driving (or at least not walking).

                                      It would be great if Band supported metrics related to crew rowing. Currently I just set this an exercise to get heart-rate monitoring, but I would really love to get GPS data and stroke rate (via accelerometer and gyroscope) added into the mix.

                                        • Count floors/stairs climbed as part of my daily steps activity

                                          The Band can already detect number of steps and elevation. It should be possible to extrapolate from there the total number of floors traveled in a given day.
