    • Add Active Time data

      One thing I miss from my FitBit is the "Active Time" counter that tells me how many minutes of time per day that the device thinks is "Active." Since heath recommendations often are in the form of how many active minutes you should get per day, that's useful. Plus, when I see that I'm not getting enough active time, that prompts me to walk faster or hit the elliptical a little longer.

      Since the Band has more sensors than the FitBit, it seems like it could do a better job of this. For example, if it looks like you're being…

      • Export Cycling Data to MapMyRide

        My running data shows on MapMyFitness as well as MapMyRide. My cycling data does not export to either of these. Please get the connected app to MapMyRide so we can exchange data. They are already a supported vendor. Should be an easy fix.

        • Allow "checkboxes" to track other things - water intake, vitamins/supplements, chores

          Would love to see a configurable option to track other things - water intake, vitamins taken, chores completed that we can quickly "check off" on the band and sync with the Dashboard. Not just for Windows Phone please :)

          • Customize snooze time for alarm

            The user should be able to define their default snooze interval. Bonus points, allow the user to define a short and a long snooze interval and present a short/long/dismiss option when an alarm fires.

              • Don't make me press the action button twice for Run

                Don't make me press action twice for run. One click should be enough. I went on running and later I realized it was 'searching for GPS' and waiting for my second action press.

                    Just like Windows Phone has a Quiet Mode (with breakthrough contacts), the Microsoft Band should have a Quiet Mode option for guided and GPS monitored workouts.

                        • Guided Workout Library on the Web

                          I'd like to be able to search the guided workouts online and send to my band. It's a better form factor for browsing the many options and for watching videos on how to do the exercises. Also, when I workout at my gym at work, I don't have a data (cellular or wifi) connection to do anything through the phone app (find my workout for the day, watch videos of how to do exercises). I would be greatly served by some way to do things via the internet using my computer.

                          • Synchronize pedometer between phone and band

                            As with any wrist mounted pedometer, carrying anything in your hands or pushing a grocery cart can prevent the band from counting steps. The phone has a perfectly good pedometer built in. Synchronize the data between the two so that you can get a better estimate of the actual steps.

                                    • Implement a touch area on the opposite side of the buttons to scroll through the tiles.

                                      Scrolling through the tiles takes time as you have to scroll at list twice from the home screen to the last tile. Furthermore, one doesn't see the tiles behind the finger. If there was a capacitive zone on the side (opposite side of the buttons), one could easily scroll faster, more precise and without hiding the tiles. When having a notification open, the same zone could be used to scroll vertically while reading...

                                      • More basic exercise types for workouts, use GPS to auto-populate

                                        My non-guided workouts sync with runkeeper but they all come as strength training. I'd like to be able to specify sports, rowing, etc.

                                        Ideally the app would know that if I start a workout and I'm at the tennis courts then it knows what I'm doing.

                                        • Notification priority

                                          Allow for olmore granular notification muting. For example, I might not want to mute phone call and SMS while at a movie, just email and other notifications. So have perhaps three settings - normal, priority and DND.
