Microsoft Band 2 is the second-generation smart band with smartwatch features that has been developed by Microsoft. It has been announced by the company on October 6, 2015 and it was released on October 30, 2015.

The device is connecting to smartphones thanks to the Bluetooth connection and it comes with features such as sleep tracking, communications tools (alerts and previews incoming SMS messages or emails that you receive, ability to access the call log of missed calls) or watch (ability to set an alarm, use it as lap timer and more).

Microsoft is always trying to come with new features for its products. Well, it seems that soon enough, a new update will be released for its Band 2. According to WindowsBlogItalia, a future update will come for both the application and Microsoft Band 2.

Microsoft Band 2 Update: What To Expect?

First of all, you should know that this upcoming update will bring a new “explore” feature. Using “Explore” you will be able to trace your path and use the GPS to mark points of interest as you walk by. At the same time, you will notice some improvements to smart reminders, as the new update will bring a new feature that will remind you to stay hydrated and eat.

The new firmware also brings a new Microsoft Health application for Windows 10, which will most likely be the rumored WUP Microsoft Health Application. You will also notice a new challenge feature in Facebook connectivity, which will allow you to challenge your friends to participate in racing, biking or cardio workout.

You can see the video that has been posted by WindowsBlogItalia below, but keep in mind that the video is in Italian language.
