Speculation has been circling that Microsoft will unveil a fitness wearable in the near future and we’ve now got our first look at the upcoming device thanks to a leak of its syncing software by Apple, Google and even Microsoft’s own app store.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
The mobile app which has appeared on a number of app stores is dubbed Microsoft Health and can track health information from the armband and stores in one place and screenshots also detail GPS functionality for running with the device as well.
In Microsoft’s own Windows Phone store it details that the device can do more than just fitness tracking, saying that the Band can make you “more productive with email previews and calendar alerts at a glance. Take notes and set reminders with your voice using Cortana personal assistant.”
Since the software has appeared so widely at the same time, it’s likely an announcement about the Microsoft Band is imminent. The app stores all link to this URL about ‘Microsoft Band’ but it’s not live right now.
Microsoft’s Sales chat support says the Microsoft Band will be released in the next couple of days. pic.twitter.com/4jg5fZk7T8
