  1. Social, Facebook, groups/teams, leaderboards, competition, sharing, friends, followers

    Being able to search for/add friends with MS Band. Add (fitbit-like) features like challenging and encouraging others. Ability to compare or compete against others can be motivations and promotes the sticky-ness of hardware/ecosystem. MS has opportunity to greatly improve on Fitbit but lets get basic functionality on there first.

    • use microsoft account for social challenges, NOT facebooks

      I love the idea of sending and receiving challenges, but don't have, and never will have, a Facebook account. But everyone with a Microsoft Band has a MSA. Let us use it for challenging and sharing

      • Ability to share more info on Social (more than a one liner of text)

        When I go to share my run or workout on Facebook, all Microsoft Health exports is a text line stating "I ran 2.1 mi with my Microsoft Band on 3/28" I'd like to show off a map with my route and pace similar to how Runkeeper displays it's run data on Facebook.

        • Hook into fitbit challenges.

          My friends do not all have the band, but I like the challenge aspect of the Fitbit service. Either integrate band step data into the Fitbit service or allow MS Health to use any fitness tracker for basic data and add a social challenge element to it.

            • Earn Xbox Achievements to replace Xbox Fitness

              Now that Xbox Fitness is being discontinued, Xbox Band can step in and fill that void. Imagine tying your Xbox account to your Band, then using Xbox Health workouts to earn Achievements, up your Gamerscore, share data with your Xbox friends... it seems like a no-brainer to me.

              • Add Achievements and Trophies and make them visible like Nike Fuel or Apple Watch have!

                I had the Nike Fuel band and the Apple Watch before the MS Band 2 and all these devices, together with the Fitbit bands have one feature in common which is missing for the MS Band 2. It is the possibility to earn achievements and trophies! It should be easy to add an achievement tile and the overview in the app and also the possibility to share these on Facebook etc. It is a great way to motivate common people to start doing more sports...maybe it is also possible to add a daily status of goal achievement on the starting…

                • Incoming Call Notification

                  On an incoming call make the haptic notification repeat for the duration of the incoming ring until answered. I think it buzzes just once.

                  • Create text message composition

                    Have a feature so that you can send text messages to people in your contacts so that if you need to contact people but only have the band on you, you still can

                      • Compatibility with Fitbit

                        Being able to see the scores of facebook friends that have fitbits as well as challenge them.
                        Basically make the social option on Facebook work with fitbits and the band since most of my friends have fitbits and not bands.

                        • Ability to add friends and compete with friends.

                          It would be nice to have the ability to have friends on the Microsoft health app. Similar to Fitbit. So that you can compete with friends and compare stats.

                          • Allow me to share the details of my run(pace, distance, miles).

                            I want to share the details of my run without showing the map. I just want to share the pace, distance, time.

                            • Keep km/miles when sharing

                              When I share a workout, the distances and paces use miles instead of km (which I have set in my app). Since none of my friends use the imperial system, it is a bit confusing. The small preview on FB is in km, but when I click it and get to the dashboard, it is in miles.

                                  • Explore to Earn Bing Reward Points

                                    Similar to Pokemon Go, but offer Bing reward points for users that reach specific destinations in the Bing Maps. This would be a fun feature that would get people using Bing maps. I run and bike a lot, so adding points along running and biking trails in my area would be awesome. The band should sync with Bing maps so users could collect points with just their band.

                                      • Create challenge ton play against/with friends

                                        Include a very easy way to challenge friends : exemple those who do the max number of feet, max kilometers etc like in the jawbone up3 application

                                        • Why is it not possible to print out or export nice pdf of our progress and charts? I would like to be able to share data with my trainer.

                                          We need a better way to share data. I work with a trainer, and there is no way I can find to share this data with her. I wish we could post nice graphs and charts (like on the dashboard) to facebook (specific viewing groups) or atleast be able to make a nice PDF will the data on screen so I can send it to her.
