Microsoft Band - Love it!

I've been an early adopter of the Fitbit.  I currently have two here around the house.

I have switched to the Microsoft Band, and yeah, I have two.  Here's why (and why I had two fitbits).

I've been known to do one of two things:

  • Leave the house without my fitness device.
  • Let the battery completely run out.

And yes, you can switch between two devices, though I think the Fitbit is a little harder.  I do know by accident that it is easy to do the Microsoft band, but wasn't the first time.  The first couple of times I had to reset my Microsoft band, I lost my data.  However, now you don't but I'm wonder if it's because I had the other one on the charger.

My favorite thing to do is put it on the charger and then leave the house without it.  I had my first Microsoft band in the truck -- it's screen is scratched up.  So I decided to give it a try.  I disconnected the Windows Phone from the band, then I reconnected the new one.  Takes a few minutes, but my data was still there!

I've done it a couple of times now, with no issues.  Even remember what tiles I had set up.  Only problem is that I have to remember to turn on watch mode.

I like it much better than the Fitbit.  I do wish you could go back and put the start and end times of sleep and exercise activity.  You could do that with the fitbit.
