  1. Personalize Band without using Microsoft Health app

    We should be able to change the Color and Wallpaper on the Band itself instead of having to use the Microsoft Health app.

    • Allow all the details in the MS Health Dashboard into the MS health phone App.

      Why do I have to go on the MS Health Dashboard on my computer (or my phone) in order to get the full experience of MS Health, when I have the app on my phone?? Why does the phone app not have all that juicy detail? Why are there two places to get info anyway? Why can't the phone app and the browser dashboard version all be the same thing?

      • Be able to name sleep

        I would like to be able to name a nights sleep, just like you can name a run or when you cycle. This way you can compare to see it you slept better/worse when you were at a hotel, in a tent, at a cabin, etc. then at home.

        • Allow to use other tiles when in Exercise, Bicycle, or Jogging mode

          When in Exercise, Bicycle, or Jogging mode the Band forces you to be in pause mode while still exercising when checking the time or choosing other tiles such as Message, etc. When you go back to one of you workout activity tiles you have to select the "Resume" button for it to start back recording your heart rate, calories, timer!!

          • Ability to Calibrate Steps

            After running everyday for the last 19 days, I've seen inconsistencies with the step counter during runs WITHOUT GPS. When running at 6.7 mph on the treadmill the mileage is spot on. Any deviation from that speed results in inaccurately counting mileage. For example, I ran for two (2) miles this morning at an average pace of 8:12 and the Band only recorded 1.89 miles with an average pace of 9:29.

            GPS runs are typically spot on, but I don't always the ability to run outside so being able to hone this feature would be great.

            Thanks for a great…

            • Notification on the Me Tile if any tiles have unacknowledged notifications

              An indicator on the Me Tile should be present if there are any Notifications Tiles with unacknowledge notifications so we don't have to scroll to see if we missed any notifications -- OR -- a new tile that does that same job so we only have to scroll a little to decide if we have to scroll even further because all notification tiles do not fit on the screen at the same time.

              • Run map improvements, show hover timestamp on markers

                Request for the Running Tile improvement in the next version: For each km check point in the run map, could you add the functionality to show a hover time stamp box when you tap on the km check point in the run map like RunKeeper? So you know the elapse time for each check point. Greatly appreciate it. :)

                • Guided Workouts should be included in the Exercise data.

                  The Exercise section has observations. But I use the Guided Workouts which doesn't have that. Even though they're separate on the Band, the Guided data should be merged into the Exercise data on the web page/app.

                  Using the guided workouts are awesome, but the lack of observations is a huge deficiency.

                  • Add TIME ELAPSED to the Run and Bike splits

                    The BIKE and RUN activities offer lots of useful info and split data points, but both have one GLARING OMISSION - the split TIME.

                    RUN shows pace and heartrate at each mile, and the BIKE tile shows avg.speed, elevation, heart rate, but neither show the TIME ELAPSED at that mile marker.

                    PLEASE add this very basic but very important data point!!!

                    • Activity specific notification settings

                      When biking I do not always notice notifications, a setting to have the haptic to be more noticeable just during an activity would be helpful.

                      • Combine first party exercise-related tiles into a single tile to save Tile Space

                        I presume that limiting the number of tiles to 12 on the Band is an important design decision - because if you have more tiles, then scrolling through them would be a bit of a pain - and that this limit is more related to usability than to memory availability. If you're a very active person and would like to use all (the current) workout options: Bike + Run + Exercise + Guided Workout available to you, then you've used 1/3 of the available tiles just for exercise stuff (I assume there may likely be more exercise options in the…

                        • Calculate average moving MPH during bike rides

                          Every other site and app I've used calculates an average MPH based on motion - not simply total distance over total time like the Band seems to do. When biking around town, there's plenty of times I have to stop but I want to see (and compare with previous routes) how I faired while actually moving.

                          • Why is there no step conversion available for biking and other activities?

                            It's obvious that the amount of steps will increase when running or walking, but why have you not got an option to convert some workouts, and bike rides to steps, including swimming and other watersports? To give you an example I've got to get to 10000 steps a day, I've "stepped" 8700 or so and biked for 18km and I'd like to be able to convert the bike distance to steps to make sure I reach my step goal. There are plenty of conversion sites available that converts certain activities to steps so I hope you can add this at…

                            • Track my weight selection in Guided Workouts

                              The guided workouts are fantastic, but many of them require me to choose my weights. In order to make the most of the 12-week programs, I'd like to be able to track my weight selections so I can see what I did last time and go heavier this time. It could be an option in the App to enter your weight for each exercise, or some way to print a tracking sheet for the program. Tracking is critical to good progress, and currently there is no good way to track!

                                      • Add ability to build custom menus and user interface

                                        If we want developers to build anything more complex than a flashlight or take readings from the sensors, they need the ability to build menu's and a user interface.

                                        • Improve tracking of walking while on a treadmill

                                          I have a treadmill that I walk on where the tracking of steps doesn't really work well. I happen to have a computer desk with it so my wrist doesn't naturally move like it normally does while walking but there is enough motion to it where the Fitbit Flex tracks this very well. I understand there are others out there as well having the same issue. If you could adjust the sensitivity of this, that would be great!
