  1. Merge MS Health, MS Health & Fitness and MS Healthvault

    MS Health has the best webapp, with lots of great UI on there. Health and Fitness have all of the cool apps and recipes and lots of news and information. Healthvault allows for the most complexity and measurements of basically anything.

    Health and Healthvault do talk to each other a bit but I would like to see the best of all services brought all under the banner of MS Health. At the moment it's rather fragmented and confusing for customers.

      • WhatsApp Tile

        We should have a separate tile for WhatsApp messages and we should be able to reply to WhatsApp messages same like how we can reply to SMS now.

        • Create XBOX Achievements for Band to Encourage Health

          You need to create Xbox Achievements based on Band usage. Create a simple Universal App that will allow you to track your activities and progress and earn Xbox Achievements for engaging in healthy activity. Make them hard to reach to encourage better health.

          My short example list (450G to earn):
          5G Gym Newbie: Burn 300 calories during a workout.
          10G Gym Expert: Burn 600 calories during a workout.
          20G Gym Rat: Burn 1,000 calories during a workout.
          30G Gym Lover: Burn total 100,000 calories in workout.
          50G Gym Resident: Burn total 250,000 calories in workout
          10G Where Are You Going?…

          • Control Camera App from Band (e.g. Lumia Camera or Lumia Selfie)

            Hope the developers of both Microsoft Band and Lumia Camera can make the new official tile for shutter controlling as the ones on the edge of phones to let us take great pictures with Lumia Camera and selfies with Lumia Selfie (Like the Treasure Tag(WS-2))

            Although the 3rd-parties also make the same issue, their processes seem not good enough especially for focusing. All I want is focus automatically, including detection for face as accurate as Lumia Camera, but not focus infinitely only.

            • Support turn by turn directions on Band (e.g. with Here Navigation integration)

              Integrate Here Navigation so that you are prompted on the band for directions.

              • PowerPoint Tile to Remote Control presentations

                Since we now can use our mobile phones to show presentations on external screens it would be nice if we could control the presentation with the band. Next slide, previous and a stop/play function if it is a time presentation.

                • IFTTT Support

                  I would love to create IFTTT recipes for my band for example put my phone to silent when my band is asleep and etc. This way you can connect your band and make it smarter with all of the other services on the internet.

                  • Support 2-step authentication using the Band

                    It would be nice if we could use the band for generating 2-step verification codes instead of receiving text messages or using a phone app.

                        Integrate with S Health since it offers more exercise and monitoring apps for Note 4. Love this watch!

                        • Add Skype integration/syncing

                          Seems like Microsoft would have some incentive to make sure it's wearable device syncs with all Microsoft-owned apps and communication options (like Skype). I'd love to be able to interact with Skype communications on my Band like I do with regular texts, emails or phone calls. Since I often keep my phone silenced now and rely on my Band for notifications, I miss Skype communications until I manually check my phone or laptop.

                            • Get calorie intake from myfitnesspal, graph against calories burned

                              It would be great if MS Health could take calorie data from myfitnesspal and graph the input against calories burned in the app.

                              Also why is there no weight tracking? What do Microsoft think people are buying fitness trackers for?

                                      As a wearable device that you always have on, the Microsoft health ben is perfectly positioned to serve as a controller of home automation devices such as lights, doors, etc. This can all be accomplished by integrating with the wink app which I believe is the number one home automation hub by market share.

                                        How can you have a health app that doesn't allow .gpx import?!? I have years worth of data on various other services. I will not use MS Health if it means I lose all that history.

                                        • Provide Interface to Exchange Data with Withings.

                                          I would like to see an interface to allow Microsoft Health to connect to the Withings Devices. In particular, the Withings WiFi enabled BP Cuff and Scale.
