People who own the Microsoft Band 2 can download an update for the fitness wearable. The update adds some new features to the Band. When you do a guided workout you can now track your distance. You’ll get a notification when you reach a distance goal during a Guided Workout that includes running, walking or biking, and the display shows your distance decrease as you move.
Furthermore the update makes it easier to share fitness stats vie Twitter, Facebook, email or text messages.
Golf players will love this update because it adds the Tournament Mode.
“With spring around the corner, grab your clubs and turn on our newest functionality, Tournament Mode for Golf. An option right on your new Microsoft Band, Tournament Mode for Golf will allow you to play a round while sticking to United States Golf Association rules for competitive play. The band will still track your round of play and your health activity, but hide your step count, distance and heart rate during your round, then have a summary waiting for you in the Microsoft Health app and dashboard upon completion.”
There is another cool feature in the update. You can connect your Microsoft Health account to Cortana to see your activity progress from your band when you open Cortana.
