Sensor-packed

Müzik grubu 2 is one of the most technologically advanced fitness trackers available with 10 different sensors and a microphone. Some of the sensors give direct read-outs, such as the constant optical heart-rate sensor (which is one of the most accurate I’ve tested), the UV sensor and GPS. Others are used in combination to detect steps and activity, track workouts and other things.

As with the original Microsoft Band, some of the sensors do not appear to be used, or at least the data isn’t user accessible yet.

Most of the information can be viewed on the band itself, or via the app and web app, which is one of the best I have used with any fitness tracker.

Müzik grubu 2 also tracks sleep and has a vibrating alarm to wake you up at the best moment. The recorded data is some of the most interesting of any sleep tracker I have tested. It also shows the standard light, deep and restful sleep markings through the night. But I can also see that when I drink a beer or glass of wine before bed my heart doesn’t reach its resting 49 beats per minute until after the alcohol has been cleared from my system in the middle of the night.

Sleep tracking is particularly interesting, providing insights beyond simply how long or how deeply you slept. Fotoğraf: Guardian Samuel Gibbs

I’m asleep, but the alcohol has delayed my rest, which explains why even small amounts of alcohol make me more tired in the morning.

Microsoft Health is full of these little pieces of information that make a world of difference to my understanding of the data, and it is improving with each update. Other platforms do not offer quite the same inferences or detail without having to pay a monthly fee.

One of the best new features is the ability to build custom workouts and upload them to the Band, which can then track your progress, either through completed reps or time.

It’s quick and easy to do. I built a 10-step circuit-training session in about five minutes, uploaded it to my Band and away I went. If you’re not sure what you’re doing there are many pre-programmed exercises and routines, complete with very good explanatory videos, to choose from.

Running tracking is also excellent, getting and maintaining a location fix with the GPS, although it isn’t quite as effective as a dedicated running watch for heart-rate band training.

Smartwatch features

Beyond the solid fitness-tracking feature set, the Band 2 behaves like a pseudo-smartwatch. It can show notifications from a smartphone, including calls, has music controls at the double tap of a button, and has tiles for Twitter, Facebook, Messenger, Stocks, Weather and Starbucks, which lets you pay for coffee with a barcode.

Connected to Windows Phone users can access Microsoft’s virtual assistant Cortana to pull up information and perform voice control. Most of the other features, including music playback control work on Android and iOS too.

Microsoft Band 2 lasted just over two days between charges in my testing. Using the GPS for a run reduced the battery life, as does using it as a watch with the screen on all the time or having notifications sent to the band. I found charging it for about 20 minutes a day – 10 minutes while showering and 10 minutes while brushing my teeth before bed – was enough to keep it between 50 ve 80% charged.

It fully charges in just over an hour with a USB, magnetic charger that clips onto the end of the strap with a firm grasp.

Fiyat

Microsoft Band 2 costs £200 in three sizes, küçük, medium and large, but only one colour. Karşılaştırma için, the Fitbit Surge costs £200 with similar specifications.

Microsoft Band 2 En cazip değil, Mevcut en ucuz ya da en uzun ömürlü spor izci. Ama sensörler ve anlayış ile doludur, ve birlikte yaşamak kolay tam özellikli izci biridir. It’s cross-compatibility with Android, iOS and Windows is commended, as are the apps and data visualisation of Microsoft’s Health app.

It makes a good, advanced band to be worn as well as a dumb watch, fits under a shirt cuff, but is less useful as an out-and-out smartwatch. There are also question marks around how long it’ll last, having visibly shown signs of wear in the first two months.

Artıları: sensor-packed, continuous heart rate, GPS, not sweaty, doesn’t pull out hairs, good data visualisation, çapraz platform, no monthly fee, great sleep tracking, custom exercise regimes/tracking, notifications

Eksileri: su geçirmez değildir, quite chunky, rubber shows signs of wear, pil ömrü daha iyi olabilirdi
