  1. Keep Band notifications in sync with your phone

    If I have touched an email, text, calendar reminder, etc on the phone or on the band, the notification should not remain showing on the other device. It is a little distracting to have the visual feedback of unread texts or mails showing on the band, when they have in fact all been handled. Yes, they are easy to dismiss, but they shouldn't even be displayed once handled on any device. (For example, in most cases if I dismiss a notification on my WP8, at some point it will sync with Exchange and the equivalent notification on my desktop Outlook…

    • Save battery on Band, and faster lock by using phone GPS when available

      The battery life of the band is kind of short when using GPS (around 2.5h it seems). It would be nice if the band could save power by polling GPS data from a user's phone when it's nearby.

      Example: your band could track a 3.5h run with your phone in your pocket, it could track a 5h bike ride with the phone in a saddle bag, etc. Bonus points for GPS hand-off when the phone runs out of battery.

      • Remove the Facebook sharing tile on the Home screen

        it's pretty ridiculous that Microsoft *permanently* affixed a tile on the health app home screen for a service that requires opt-in to Facebook.

        That UX failure impedes my ability to get to the information *I* care about.

        It needs to be removable.

        • Alert me when bands battery is fully charged that way I know to put it back on

          When I plug my band in to charge I have to remember to check it to see when it is fully charged, would like the band to notify my phone and generate an alert letting me know the band is fully charged and I can now put it back on

          • Improve integration between phone and Band alarms

            Currently alarms created on phone do not vibrate Band if Band is in sleep mode. Only the single alarm created on Band will interrupt sleep mode. I'd like my phone alarms to come through to Band even if sleep mode is on.
            Band only allows one alarm, and that alarm does not automatically reset. Better integration of Band with phone alarms could resolve this, since phone supports multiple alarms that automatically reset.
            For phone alarms (at least Windows Phone), maybe ability to choose to vibrate the Band instead of playing a sound.

            • Offline Support: sync and browse data offline in app, without internet connection

              Allow me to browse data in the mobile app, even when offline

              When a data connection is not available, the WP8 app doesn't show any info at all. It would be nice if most of the data would be stored locally as well so we can look through prior workouts even without a network connection.

              • Support Outllok sync on iOS (Calendar and Mail)

                Current mail integration only supports the native Mail app on iOS. Would be nice to have your own Outlook app provide the same, if not greater integration.

                • Customize Microsoft Health tiles

                  Add feature to remove and rearrange the tiles in the app just like we can on the band. I have no need for the challenge tile with the new update but it is at the top of the app taking up space.

                  • Keep phone screen locked/turned off during Band's Cortana use.

                    When using Cortana on the Band, the phone's screen turns on, just as if I were using Cortana normally without the Band. The problem is - if I am using Cortana on my Band, my phone may be in my pocket, causing 'pocket dials' or interrupted communication with Cortana and the Band.

                    • biking tracking on the phone (without the band)

                      Please, the phone can track most of the data while biking/running without a band, so let us choose!

                        • Sync could be faster

                          The app is ridiculously slow syncing data. It probably takes 3 minutes to sync two days worth of updates. Is there any particular reason? Could we, I don't know, make it a little faster? Or make it happen as a background activity so I don't have to just sit around waiting?

                          • Transparent Tile

                            Make the Tile transparent, to match Windows 10 UI. It will make the app feel more integrated to Windows 10 visual.

                            • Support Android app on Amazon Fire or Blackberry 10

                              Currently MS Band does not work with Amazon Fire phone or Blackberry 10 running the Android app. This is a bluetooth communication problem that shouldn't be too difficult to fix. Most other fitness devices support these platforms...an alternative would be to at least make the desktop app have the same functionality as the mobile app.

                              • Allow selection of the email accounts for which you receive notifications (VIPs on Android/iOS)

                                I've enabled e-mail notifications on my Band but, by default, my Android phone will send notifications for new email in both my work and personal accounts. That's all well and good but I receive about a bajillion emails (I'm rounding up) in my work account so, in my instance, I'd like to just exclude that account — since any critical work messages I'll get by TXT anyway. Thus, I'd like to be able to select the precise email accounts for which I'll get notifications on the Band.

                                Similar functionality exists for Windows Phone — in the form of 'VIPs' —…

                                  • Add sync options (sync interval, sync over Wi-Fi)

                                    Put sync options within the Microsoft health app so you can control how often the band will sync data to the phone. It kills my phone battery with how often it syncs now.

                                    • Stop getting two notifications per e-mail (one from e-mail tile, one from notification tile) with Band 2 and Windows 10 Mobile

                                      Currently with Windows 10 Mobile, if you have both the mail and notification tiles enabled on the Band 2 and Outlook Mail enabled in the Notification page of Windows 10 Mobile, then you get two notifications (one from the Band 2 email tile, one from the Band 2 notification tile).

                                      There should be some way to only get one notification (from the E-mail tile if they are both enabled, or from each one if only one of them is enabled).

                                      • Transparent tile for the MS Health App on WP8.1

                                        I think the MS Health App on WP should support transparent tile, as other MS apps are doing. Will be more integrated in the start screen experience.

                                        • Choose mail account for notification

                                          On my phone i have three different mail accounts. gmail and outlook.com as my private accounts and exchange for my company mails.
                                          i really want to chose the account to receive notifications on my band. for me the company mails are important and there is no way to display them on the band.
