A few points of interest for the Microsoft Band.
– the charger is magnetic but it only comes with the cable, no wall plug.
– it’s water resistant, not waterproof
– it connects to your phone via bluetooth and you have to download an app to set it up. The app is available for Windows Phone, iPhone and Android.
– the charger port on the band is exposed and it’s facing your hand. Wouldn’t that get rusty from your perspiration?
This is not shining in any way. It’s an uglier Samsung Gear Fit that sells for more that the Samsung one.
