Microsoft Band

Microsoft Band is the perfect thing for people who want to live a healthier life and achieve more. The Band allows users to reach their health and fitness goals by tracking their heart rate, exercise, sleep quality, and calorie burn. You can even be more productive with text, email, and calendar alerts – all from your very own wrist.

New patents could mean that Microsoft is working on more Band fitness trackers

Now, it seems that the tech giant filed two new patents that seem to be suggesting the fact that Microsoft is not close to being done with their gadgets. The first patent is basically a combination of a prior patent that involved a ring-shaped device with electrically-conductive skin sensors also referred to as Galvanic Skin Response contacts.

The patent explains that these sensors could be used in order to find out stress levels and other elements from the users of the device. The second patent filed by Microsoft talks about the technology for measuring the user’s blood pressure. You can take a look for yourself at these two patents by following the links.

Patents include important info and diagrams linked to Band-like devices

These two patents could very well be suggesting that there are a few devices that Microsoft may be working on. All the details included in the patents and the diagrams presented in them definitely make a point that the tech giant is currently working on something that’s similar to Microsoft Bands.

We can’t tell for sure if the company will finalize the projects and come up with new Microsoft Bands and we’ll just have to wait and see.

For its original Microsoft Band, the company also created an app that let users share their activity data with their favorite fitness apps and provides access to experiences developed with premier sports and lifestyle brands.
