  1. Sleep mode with microphone recording

    In sleep mode it would be good to save the last min(s) of audio just as you enter awake state (alternatively noise level on the sleep grpah during the night), this could help diagnose a possible causes of waking up. e.g. snoring, sleep apnea, outside/inside noise vs dreams/nightmares / other causes.

    • Fix bluetooth audio stutter, snaps, and pops when wearing band

      I often have bluetooth audio stutter when I wear the band and try to play locally stored music from my 1520 in my car. The music interrupts every few seconds and there are unpleasantly loud ticks and snaps from the car speakers. The issues go away when switching the band to airplane mode. It doesn't always happen, so I suspect it's due to the band communicating with the phone.

      This needs a fix asap because it basically means I end up fiddling with the band while in traffic. Well, or turning off my music, but who does that. Update: to…

      • Offer an extra large (XL) band size

        The current sizes cover many people, but not all. Another size above the current Large would be great for people with particularly thick wrists.

        • Waypoint marking (GPS) from Band

          When I am biking/running with GPS on and press the small button, I want to see an option to mark my position. That position should be transferred to the app as part of my run/bike record. The app should provide digital lag/long in addition to map display.

            • Make the Watch Mode toggle a tile, as well as within settings.

              I frequently switch Watch Mode on & off depending on my situation. I switch it off when not needed, or if the outside when the sun is too bright to read the screen, to conserve the battery. If there were a Watch mode tile, even one that just linked to the section in Settings, it would make the switch far more convenient.

              • Guided Workout Request: Yoga

                Seriously, I would love to be able to go through yoga routines with my Band. Just take the yoga workouts from the Health and Fitness app and port them into the MS Health app as guided workouts.

                • Display Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) data on band

                  Would be very useful to see GSR values live on the band as well as in the health app. Since GSR raw values can tricky to interpret, then can create a useful measurement (i.e. 0-100) to track sweat levels, as values will be different based on the individual. This would be useful as GSR levels can signify levels of anxiety and stress, in addition to sweat levels during fitness. Perhaps even more effective when the sensor is on the bottom of the wrist where it would be closer to sweat glands.

                  • Connect to other BTLE Equipment(sensors) to gain more battery time

                    A lot of people already have for example the chestband Polar H7 BTLE, and i find them very acurate and some of them are waterproof and is almost always in possition, when i play fotball or squash the band often moves or the heart rate monitor on the band is struggling to keep up. i sometimes get HR Readings way to high when doing this "highly-moving-sports"
                    a) let the band connect to other HR-montiors
                    b) let the information from other hr monitor be used if users want to.

                    if this is achievable, then support for other BTLE equipment such could…

                      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.

                      • Bontrager DuoTrap Digital Speed/Cadence Sensor, Band and Health app

                        I'd like to see the Band work in concert with something like the Bontrager DuoTrap Digital Speed/Cadence Sensor and the Health app to combine metrics on a bike ride. The DuoTrap Digital is Bluetooth Smart enabled making it possible to pull in cadence information for a ride as well.

                          For those of us that utilize quiet hours, they should be triggered and finish when you enter and end sleep mode on your band.

                              • Access to the underlying data or at least a zoom into the charts

                                For example, today I did a 60 minute run tracked with the "run" activity. It shows that my average heart rate was 182, high 191, and ending 176. Obviously it was in the 180s a lot. But the smoothed daily heart rate graph doesn't show any point over 160 even with a sustained average of 182 for an entire hour. I want visibility into either a very granular zoom or the actual underlying data so I can actually use the information.

                                • Keep phone screen locked/turned off during Band's Cortana use.

                                  When using Cortana on the Band, the phone's screen turns on, just as if I were using Cortana normally without the Band. The problem is - if I am using Cortana on my Band, my phone may be in my pocket, causing 'pocket dials' or interrupted communication with Cortana and the Band.

                                  • Use heart rate to determine fitness level

                                    After a few runs, you should be able to correlate my pace with my heart rate to determine my fitness level. From there, it would be excellent to use that information to tailor workouts for me (suggest a "hard" run at 6:00/mi pace, etc.)
