  1. Make the Band waterproof

    The current band is awesome, but I'd like to keep it on during a swim in the ocean.

        • Add a Medical Emergency ID tile

          Just like Road ID, it would be great to have an Emergency ID tile on the band so that in the event of a running or other exercise emergency, someone could easily ID you when help arrives. Also helpful would be the ability to specify any health concerns to show on the tile. It would need to be the first tile to be of any benefit.

            • Show battery by % of charge.

              I think it really helps to understand my band 2 if I can see battery by % of charge.

              • 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…

                    • Bring the Band 2 Features to Band 1

                      at least that Features that don't need the barometer, like UV Metering on Runs or Bicycle Tours, or the Sleep-Alarm-WakeUp Feature that really doesn't need the bigger Screen of Band 2 or de curved design or the barometer... all sensor are in Band 1!

                      it is rediculus that persons have bought band 1 and are now sitting on an device that is basically worthless, but really has almost the same hardware functionality as the successor but is just left behind

                        • 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…

                            • 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…

                                  If you forget to tell the band you woke up the band will just record it as "awake" if you're walking around or "sleep" if you left it charging. This screws up statistics as for example there is on day I forgot the band at home charging and states that I slept for 18 hours.

                                      • 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.

                                          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.
