Microsoft today announced their new wearable device, Microsoft Band. In addition to all the fitness focused features, Microsoft Band supports lots of productivity related features as well. It can offer email previews and calendar alerts appear right on your wrist so you know what you have to do and where you have to be even on the go. And with help from Cortana, your productivity will soar. There is notification support for Facebook, Messenger, MSN apps and more. But, Microsoft didn’t open the platform for 3rd party developers yet. However, Joe Belfiore today confirmed that Health Band team is working on providing SDK in the future update. Also, they are talking to a number of potential partners on getting their apps connected.
So, expect more high-profile apps adding support for Microsoft Band in the near future.
The Microsoft Band is now available in limited quantities in the U.S. at MicrosoftStore. Order it soon.
