Home » Microsoft Band Health Companion App for Windows Gets Important Update, Free Download

At the moment, there isn’t yet an official Microsoft Health app on the Windows Store for Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 users. While there is a desktop client that users can download, we’re expecting the launch of a specialized app. For now, only Windows Phone owners have access to it, but this could change once the Windows 10 unified platform and store will be deployed.

For now, we’re talking about an important update released to Windows Phone users. So, if you have a Microsoft Band and you want it synced with your Windows Phone device, here’s the list of the latest improvements:

  • Corrected historical views for steps and calories
  • Zip code validation correction
  • Birth Date validation correction
  • Improved handling of 0 minute duration sleep events
  • Connected apps link is now available at first sign-up
  • General app stability improvements

As it looks right now, the Microsoft Band seems to be a pretty hot device, as it’s currently out of stock. Apple will soon unveil its own Apple Watch, as well, so it seems that this time Microsoft is well-prepared for the competition that lies ahead.
